I’m always mentioning in emails, and to customers at checkout :
Please take pictures of your project, including the BEFORE.
You will be amazed at the transformation when you compare the before to the after, and we love it when you share those with us 🙂
Here are some recent emails:
After finishing my chair in your class, I purchased the materials to complete my table, chairs, and bench.
Although the picture doesn’t show it clearly, the table and chairs were terribly scratched and worn. Thanks to you, I have a “new” table and chairs! I am so happy with the finished product especially because I love the piece but was embarrassed by how bad it looked.
Thank you for giving me the confidence and instruction to do it. I have sent friends and family into your store and everyone is excited to begin their own projects.
Sincerely Katie Z
Love it Katie! A crisp classic look. Katie used Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Mustard with a Coffee Glaze. You can find her workshop wares here.
Shelly sent me a boatloat of transformations –
Shelly’s got her paint groove on!
And Kathy McMillan wasn’t resting on her laurels either!
Well I have to tell you I worked on this bathroom for just a week, here and there. My husband loves his new bathroom and I loved doing the finish.
My inspiration piece
the bathroom before
Took out the old vanity and added beadboard
I had some Caromal Reclaim Buttercreme and the Reclaim Antiquing Glaze…
After two light coats of Reclaim Buttercreme
I chip brushed American Paint Company (I love this paint!) Nation Forest (green) in the grooves and wiped it back with a wet and dry cloth-
I was trying to brush in some of the CeCe Beckley Coal and it dripped… I wiped it with a cloth in a circular motion and boom there was a ‘knot’ in my ‘fence’ … I was trying to make the bead board look like the fence in the inspiration border piece. After the glaze it has a very rich look to it.
I put the Minwax Wipe-on Poly on it so we could clean it…
A bathroom fit for a man!
