Furniture Paint Finishes – Eye Candy Layering Colors of Paint…

I’ve always been a fan of sample boards, sample finishes… it’s a visual thing. How else, after all, will we figure out just WHAT floats our boat and what sinks it?

We’ve got hundreds of samples in our store,  Caromal Colours, Reclaim Paint, American Paint Company …  There are solid colors,  layered colors,  glazed finishes, waxed finishes, topcoats,  textured, smooth, you name it.

We recently beefed up our American Paint Company samplings,  adding 150+ layered sample finishes, with various topcoats -

If you’ve not tried American Paint chalk/clay/mineral paints and topcoats,  I highly recommend them.   There is so much hoopla surrounding the ‘CHALK PAINT’ craze -   they AREN’T all created equal.

APC’s paints are more than just chalk, they are completely natural, and smell great :)   Their waxes are by far my favorite -  pure, natural,NO SMELL, easy to apply, quick to dry, and buff to a nice sheen.  Equally <3 is their ALTERNATIVE to wax -  the Topcoat Finish.  I can’t tell you how many people come into our store, not even realizing that anything other than WAX exists -  I call it a necessity for scenarios like cabinets, an every day table, vanity and desk tops, kids furniture…   Topcoat is like brushing on water – no need to thin, it dries quick, leave a mild satin finish, and cures to a harder finish than wax.

I snapped a bunch of pictures, some aren’t the clearest but I’ll post for now and update later.     Also (eeeek) I didn’t flip each over and snap the back to get the description – that would have been too much work, right?   But now I wish I had, because I’m not certain what some of them are.   Instead of holding back the post, I’m going to get it up, then I’ll verify the finishes and get clearer photos for the blurry ones, later this week.

Along with the layered color samples, a full set of American Paint 12 inch color samples, finished off with various topcoats, joined our APC counter -

Our original set of 12 inch solid color boards   show each color Topcoated (APC’s waterbased sealer) and Clear Waxed.   This new set expands the solid color, showing a variety of finishes -  Dark Wax, Black Wax,  Mica Waxes like Gold, Pewter, Copper,  Silver,  Topcoat and Glaze…

When you play with the colors, and add different topcoats, it’s amazing how many new FAVORITES you discover  – I found several new ones myself :)

Mandy Paints Her Pottery Barn Dining Room Table, A Restoration Look

We love Mandy…   She will come into the store with a particular project in mind, her  young son usually in tow (who is fabulously behaved), with a particular look in mind.   She looks for a little guidance  – what does she need to acquire that look -  gets what she needs, and off she goes.

Not long after, Mandy will stop back,   excited to show us her before and after transformations…   can you ask for a more rewarding job than ours?

This was her most recent,  her table and chairs before -  looked fine, still in style,  matched fine,  but she wanted MORE ….

Mandy used

1) Caromal’s Textured Basecoat Parchment as her basecoat, brushed on. Let dry.

2) American Paint Company’s Cannonball Black brushed on, thinned a little w/water. Let dry.

3) Sand to reveal texture.

4) Stencil with American Paint Freedom Road.  Lightly scuff to age.

5) Topcoat with American Paint Topcoat Finish.

The Work Bathroom Redo, On A Dime…

Wish I had the perfect before photo…  the best I could do is this

DSC_7201

See the water tank?  That is tucked away in a closet area, that was doored off with bifold doors.  They were ugly, and I wasn’t looking forward to painting them.

This painted bookcase was originally in the bathroom on the wall to the right, as you entered the bathroom.

DSC_2568

So what to do?   No clue,  just knew I wanted to use existing products that I had on my shelf.     First we painted the ceiling black,   then the walls got one rolled coat of Caromal Colours Perfect Plaster.  It’s a textured stone plaster, perfect for hiding flaws, and for creating a little interest…

This photo below shows the opening to the water tank closet.  I removed the bifold doors and shoved the bookcase into the opening.   It would work, as there was clearance behind it for the tank, but I had gaps all around it.

DSC_4436

So I took a piece of wood molding that I had and we nailed that as a header on top,  it was such a wide piece of trim that it covered up the top gap -  then I used some burlap to hide each side gap (mounted it by stapling it to the header trim).

This way left easy enough access to the closet area behind – the bookcase just pushes in and out.

troweled plaster walls, textureline

I used the Caromal Colours Plaster on the header molding, to create texture, and then brushed over it with some of the metallic wall plasters to make it match the burlap color.

DSC_4481

DSC_4452

To update the bookcase, we used Reclaim Off White, watered down, and brushed on like a wash,  OVER the existing green of the bookcase (previously finished with Caromal’s textured basecoat Cobblestone over Chocolate).

I had thought about using one of the chalk/clay paint colors, watered down,  that would have been easy and fast as well, but I would have had to seal it, and I was looking for the quickest and easy route – the Reclaim has a built-in sealer.   When the paint was dry, I gave it a fast glaze with Caromal’s Coffee and Creme glazes mixed 50:50, and added some dimensional stenciling to the front and shelves (using the Metallic Wall Plasters).   I always recommend waiting 3-4 days before glazing Reclaim, but this was a thin washed layer, and I was going for a mottled, dirtied, linen look – if it bit in more than it should I wasn’t going to care…

DSC_4476

DSC_4539

I added a fat crystal knob,  and glue gunned some fun ploomish trim to the shelves to finish it off…     I found a tin container, painted it and added a dimensional stencil to mark our ‘drug’ bin -   aka  R X,   and grabbed one of the burlap sacs that we sell and used it to bury the kleenex -

DSC_4448

stenciled furniture, added trim to decorate

I dressed up the burlap panels as well, with a couple of metal buttons that I had in the drawer

DSC_4489

decorating burlap panels

Now, the walls….    the first wall I did was this one when you enter, on the right.  I troweled over the Caromal rolled stone with one layer of Texturline’s Moire Metallic Plaster.   It was an olive bronze color  (Ill grab all the color names tomorrow when I’m at the store and update this post).   Over that I troweled another layer of about 6 misc colors of Sedona and Moire, both types of Texturline Metallic Plaster.   There was a copper, a blue, a yellow, a green and two golds.

troweled decorative wall, frames

To finish it off I troweled a layer of Texturline’s acrylic Satin Wax, tinted black – its a cool way to make all of your colors, and texture,  POP

DSC_4531I pulled out several frames from a stack I had,  dressed them up a little, and tacked them to the wall,  Unsure what to put inside each frame, I decided to showcase some of the items we have in the store for sale -

DSC_4532

DSC_4534

DSC_4535

DSC_4549

I loved the focal wall, but didn’t feel like doing all that on the other three walls, plus it would be pretty busy.   Instead, I troweled one layer of Texturline’s Sedona Plaster, color ASH, over the Caromal Plaster.  In the picture below you can see how subtle the color is

DSC_4461One downfall to these metallic plasters on walls  – they are hard to capture in a photograph.  The walls below just look plain, but in person they have a pretty shimmer to them.   I  have a stencil that says  CAFE DES ARTISTES.   I decided to use it, sans the ‘CAFE’  and instead add in the word  BAIN -  like  Bath of Artists.    I used individual letters to stencil the letters  B A I N,  but didnt like how it looked so I quickly scraped it off, touched up the wall, and left it alone.

I tacked up one of our workshop aprons, and stuffed some brushes in the pockets  -    WE , all of us that paint and create, are  Des Artistes!

DSC_4599

Wanting the stencil to have dimension, I used the multiple colors of Moire Plaster from wall #1 -

DSC_4569

A big accomplishment of mine – I rewired a new light, all by myself!  The old one was horrible, this one is cool, and adds dot shadows to the walls – unplanned, of course …

crystal light fixtures, black ceiling

See the lampshade on the left, with red beads, mounted high on the wall?  That’s now our paper towel holder  :)  My old desk lampshade… perfect!

DSC_4600

I needed something else on that wall -  there was the big water knob,  for a place to hang your purse -  but it didn’t fill the void.   I found several wood sticks, freshened them up with stain, and nailed them to the wall.   That worked…

lampshade papertowel holder

The sink was ugly,  just a SINK, sticking out from the wall….   We used more burlap, decorated it with diamond rivets, and velcro’d it to the sink basin, creating a skirt

sink skirt, burlap, gilded faucet

While I was at it I silver and gold leaf’d the faucet, because it was ugly and drab too…    No, I’m not worried that it won’t hold up – I gold leaf’d my old powder room faucet with no probs -  I used Caromal Colours Smooth Basecoat Chocolate as the base, it bonds solid to metal, then I used a Sticky Size, then a mix of gold and silver leaf.  Over that I rubbed one coat of wipe on poly. Will do several more coats as this week progresses.

Lastly, the floor…    First coat I  whizz rolled on Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Chocolate

I went back today and whiz rolled a second coat of Chocolate.  All the layers are thin.  When it dried I used a scraper and bladed on Caromal Textured Basecoat Putty, and some TB Parchment, mixed with water.    When that was dry I used a harlequin stencil and added harleys with the olive bronze Moire metallic wall plaster.

Shame shame shame,  I was blow drying up a storm – given this is going to be a busy floor I shouldn’t have been rushing things,  but…..   sheeshh…..   so yes, I force dried a bit,  and before I went home I added a quick glaze over it all.   I actually grabbed the camera so I could show you how subtle the glaze is – but I wanted it to set the floor apart more from the neutral walls -  below you can see the glaze is on the back half, the front area is unglazed-

I used Texturline’s Molasses Glaze, cut with some Clear Glaze so it wasn’t too intense, and added a little APC Gold Mica into the mix

DSC_4518

Scrubbed it on and wiped off immediately, as I went…

Did you notice my plant holder?  I needed some height in this corner, so I took three mailing tubes that were collecting dust, glued, burlaped,  and tied them together, and voila – a custom vase!

In Honor Of The Red White and Blue… American Paint Style

I was looking through my work pictures, trying to find  a ‘before’ of the bathroom at my store -  this last week I decided 1  1/2 years was long enough to have an ugly restroom…

Instead of finding the pre-bathroom picture, I found this project, waiting to be shared, and thought it appropriate for this holiday weekend :)

I garbage picked this dresser- the shell was solid but the inside guts were junk- a piece not worthy to paint and sell, but perfect for a floor display, which I was in need of when I acquired the American Paint line  (yes, over a year ago – told you I had alot of projects to share :) ).

DSC_2141

The plan was to use Blue Jeans, Shining Seas,Fireworks Red and Navajo White and see what I could come up with-

DSC_2143

DSC_2142

DSC_2149

I brushed Blue Jeans out on top, and then brushed fat stripes with Shining Seas.  The front went Fireworks Red, and the sides got a mix of it all, creating a cool darker blue…

blue jeans, shining seas, fireworks redI had stamped white fleur d’lis ‘s on the sides – liked the ‘white’ but didn’t like the pattern…

Now the perfect ending -  last night we were at friends celebrating the 4th.  My son was with his buddies for a night of fireworks and camp fires. He came home today, still in his clothes from yesterday, and his shoulders looked wierd – like remnants of blue – maybe a temporary tatoo?   Firework powder/resin?

Nope -  he told me he drove by the store last night (he has a key, which maybe I need to rethink) -  because he wanted to ‘wear’ his spirit/freedom -  he told me the Shining Seas, Fireworks Red and Uncle Sam were perfect!
