I met Gwen recently, she owns The Cutting Point Salon in Washington Township. She stopped by the store and loved the warmth of the furniture finishes in the showroom. She had 4 perfect sized tables (3 black, 1 red) for her blow dry stations, but in updating her Salon’s decor, the tables no longer worked. Time for a makeover
First I brushed one coat of Reclaim Licorice on the red one, to turn it black…
Stool rungs suck… I like working on things that I can kick out quickly, and stools aren’t one of them….
Now that it’s black like the other three, time to get artsy
I use the Caromal Colours textured basecoat paints Peppercorn (black) and Colonial Blue, dragging first the black, then the blue, to create a dimensional stried organic texture…
When that dries, I dry brush in a little Modern Masters Warm Silver for a highlight, sand a little to get rid of any crispy feeling
and then topcoat with Min wax Wipe-on Poly
That week I stumbled on these 2 metal frames
and decided to surprise Gwen… I dragged the textured basecoats over the frames as well… Peppercorn first
then the blue, then a little warm silver….
I used a stencil and the textured basecoat paint to stencil words right on the outside glass – then behind it I painted the warm silver for the perfect backdrop
I think a hair salon could use these somewhere, don’t you think?
Love Gwen, her husband’s a nice guy too – her salon was hopping when I was in there … Stop by and check it out!
