Taste of My Week, A Camera Trail…

Last night, out with friends, I noticed my girlfriend had over 2500 images on her Iphone.  Think about that,  2500 pictures!   Every day we have customers pulling out their phones or Ipads,   showing us a project they completed using our products


a photo of our customers recent island re-do using Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Cobblestone, and Toner

or photos of inspiration

I want my kitchen cabinets to look like this…


and the classic

I want to paint this …


Often, they can’t find the photo they want to show us – they swipe, and swipe, and swipe through all these tiny images – a rewind into their past


That’s how I felt this weekend, loading up my camera SD card – it was a pictorial rewind of my week

Finished this –


Ash over APC Gunpowder, crackled. Top, sanded, stained.

Created some accessories…





I really liked the color of this metal container – it was black to start with and I drybrushed several greens and neutrals over it – might have to try that on something bigger…

A green glossy ceramic pot (I changed the finish to a white and grey glazed crackle)  in need of a fresh plant that I didn’t have (nor want, because anything alive won’t last around me)…  how do you stage it?   I found that this container fit it just right –  it’s priced separately…


Rolled this one out to the floor as well  – I used Caromal Colours Reclaim Offwhite, brushed on and glazed with toner.


The inside was backed with our lovely aged Botanical papers (coming to our online shopping cart soon!)


The insides of the upper and lower cabinets and drawers were stained to bring them back to life, but the sides of the drawers got a splash of color – actually   I used three of our custom tints   – Groovy Green, Killer Khaki and Trendy Truffle and stenciled randomly, using black and white stencil cremes


I freshened up  the original hardware using Reclaim Mocha, a darkened bronze, and black glaze


I always find a way to add a touch of Swarovski



I  just love this hardware….


Ate WAY too many of these this week,  tasteless yet addicting…


More camera lovin –





I stenciled these tall lamps that arrived –





unboxed a few others


I love this one…






Using our paints and finishes to create a new work of art



Finally painting the phone booth I acquired from an estate sale last summer… Originally red, we’re taking it blue


in honor of WHO?       I had no clue who Dr. Who was, but several suggested, after seeing the phone booth, that if we painted it  blue they would buy it…


Lastly,  these decorative resin/stone finals got dressed up with some new variegated leaf that I was trying out –


Aren’t they pretty?



My goal this week – taxes.

Ba   hahhahahahahhaaaaaaa….
