In my past life, the larger surfaces would tire me after a week….

but  furniture is the perfect canvas… typically JUST the right size to get your creative juices flowing….

Though I paint custom pieces for clients –

this went from gold to blackened silver…

I prefer painting pieces randomly…   This french provencial desk gets a coat of Reclaim Mocha paint –

over the Mocha, a blend of silver metallic paint,    I like to apply metallic paint ‘lean’, meaning I use very little on my brush and take my time, working slow and steady, to cover the Mocha basecoat –

When the metallic paint dries I apply Caromal Colours Toner, a brown glaze kind of product – I brush the Toner on and softly wipe it back.

When that dried I brushed over the drawer fronts with a Black Glaze –

The hardware was painted Mocha, and then APC Navajo White, for a different look.  When the white dries I sand back the hardware, and then topcoat with APC Topcoat finish…

This piece was very clean, it didn’t show any sign of ‘use’…   the  insides of the drawers and their sides  received a coat of water based stain –

I added Swarovski crystals to the hardware-

and stenciled the sides and a small back area, with Caromal Toner

Here you can see the back panel with it’s stenciling…  not often are the backs of furniture items ‘finished’….

I refinished the matching chair the same way – it is a nice bonus when we receive a matching chair in with a piece –

We recovered the seat and added some trimmings as well…

I woodgrained the top, using various paints/finishes – typically textured basecoat, Reclaim and APC natural chalk/clay paints, a Topcoat and then a glaze or stain, followed by more topcoating –

  1. Patty do you happen to know of anyone in the Orlando, FL area that paints cabinets. My Aunt is currently trying to find someone in her area to paint her existing kitchen cabinets.

    Or, do you have a paint that would work without all the prep work before hand.

    Thank you so much for your asstance
