What have our customers been up to? Let’s begin with Candace. she headed out east to help refinish her daughter’s kitchen cabinets. The befores and the after, using Reclaim Bright White on the uppers, and Reclaim Pewter on the lowers. She used our White Glaze over both the uppers and lowers New counters, backsplash, appliances, and tile floor This kitchen has a brand new look and feel – love it! She also did a whole bedroom suite of furniture for her cottage – the before and after, this time using Reclaim Bright White and Reclaim Pewter mixed together – (this creates a lighter shade of the darker pewter gray) Chris started with this and turned it into a cool media table using Cottage Paint Bold Black (a custom color we tint), and Stencil Creme Snowberry White – instant life! Cheryl has projects galore in line… a before cedar chest and the after, using Caromal Colors Textured Basecoat Parchment (creme) and American Paint Company Desert Cactus (khaki). Then, APC Clear Wax mixed with a little APC Dark Wax. The papers are from our Aged Paper collection from Monahan Papers , and the new fabric seat is perfect Cheryl also completed this family room table, layering Caromal Textured Basecoat Paprika, Chipping Creme, then Caromal Textured Basecoat Bayberry. She distressed and then applied Caromal’s Toner glaze – Before cabinets – after – what an amazing update – Dennis used Reclaim Offwhite and Coffee Glaze- How about painted tile? D Munro shared this before photo and went to work painting the floor into a checkerboard. Reclaim Licorice and Reclaim Bright White were used on the floor tile, and to stencil a matching pattern on the wall The cabinets also received an update, using the same paint, Reclaim Licorice – Jan used Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Mustard with Caromal Coffee Glaze, and let some of the darkness of her original finish shadow through…so pretty! Another before vanity Love the AFTER experience 🙂 Deedee writes:
OMG, I really put it to the test. Cabinets are about 25 years old, I’ve never been refinished or painted. Lots of wear as you can see. All I did was wipe them with denatured alcohol and roll on Reclaim Paint Pewter. I even did the handles. I love that it shows the grain like a high end stain. I’m going to glaze them but I had to share because I’m so excited! Thank you!
I can see why she is excited – this cabinet looks fabulous!!! This chest was sent to me, and Im not sure who it was or what it was – I’d say either American Paint Company colors Cannonball, Fireworks Red, and Amber Waves of Grain, or it could be Reclaim Licorice, Poppy and Buttercreme… either way, cool use of paints – Katherine used our Gilding Leaf products to gold leaf a light fixture – this turned out fabulous, and she is thrilled! A before chair Pamela joined one of our workshops and completed this pretty silver finish chair, using Reclaim Mocha, a metallic silver, and our Black Glaze Nicole’s cabinets before – and after, using Reclaim Bright White A before dining room table and after, it looks like they used Reclaim Licorice (black) and Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Pumpkin with Toner for the woodgrain look – No before photo, but this customer used our Cottage Paints, layered with Cottage Paint Crackle in between, to create this finish. (I think it was Wonderous White over Gorgeous Grey, both custom colors we tint) Kaye used our Aged Papers and paints to create this sweet wood sign you can watch our how to video on how we like to apply and age the papers here This is what Karen’s before furniture looked like and this is her after transformation 🙂 using American Paint Company Navajo White over Smoke Signal, and stenciling with metallics – Lori used Botanical Peony on this piece This is a dresser, that Mary refurbished into a vanity – Gorgeous! Love the sink, and the top row of drawers – didn’t even notice the detail on the old dresser… She used Caromal Textured Basecoat Peppercorn, dry brushed some Bronze Metallic over that, and topped with Reclaim Glaze and Reclaim Sealer Barb had this cute wooden stool, but wanted to freshen up the look Darn it, Im not sure what she used, I think APC Shingle on the Roof stenciled over APC Smoke Signal – Pamela’s before and her after table using Cottage Paint Bluetiful (another custom color we tint) and Cottage Crackle around one of our Aged Papers by Monahan Mary’s before table base she used Reclaim Offwhite as the base, then applied American Paint’s Clear Wax with various amounts of Pewter Mica added to it – An island, ready for some color – Denise used about a 1/4 of a quart of Reclaim Pebble for this transformation… Yes, YOU can do it! Here is Lynne’s first Reclaim project, using Reclaim Mocha as the base, our metallic silver blend over top, and then Caromal’s Toner to antique it back – what a cool piece! Sue sends this before photo of a table that her neighbor was throwing out years earlier. From the photo its hard to tell, but the top was ruined and the rest of the finish had gouges and splatter from paint. She used it as is, for their TV- They are now in the process of transitioning their living space to lighter and brighter. The family room, with a nautical style theme, was the lead for this transformation- Sue used several nautical / whale aged papers that we have, and cut them to fit the unique spaces, then mixed our chalk clay paints (a white and yellow) to create a soft neutral, topcoated, and voila! She was thrilled that she was able to remake her piece into something that will work with their new decor. Just love this!!! This kitchen is the before for Jennifer- Not sure why i only have one after, but she used Botanical Willow on the uppers, and Reclaim Pebble on the lowers – very nice combo, wish I could see more! and last but not least, a local kitchen island redo – they used Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Cobblestone with Toner Cool accent look – makes the island more like a piece of furniture – Maybe as I get photos in, I’ll save them with a long crazy name, like Suzys_hutch_paprika_over_mustard_toner …. that would help later, when it comes time to share them. Our latest TV show’s link isn’t up yet, I’ll post it when it is. We don’t get to paint the Electric Queen of the Forest, I guess shes too big to transport across the state… oh well, that would have been cool.
