Here comes Round 2 of clearing the slate for 2016, sharing those projects sent in from our awesome customers . What better way to inspire others right?
Caroline shared an adorable stool she painted-
Just want to thank you for the tips and my order. I used the textured base coat and tips from one of your videos to paint this stool for my dog rescue silent auction. It went for $85, very excited. I used the micas and dark glaze too. The dog is from a stencil…
Here are pics of our kitchen redo of our house in Traverse City. Sure do love that Reclaim. I also used the Pewter in my bathroom. Love your store! Debbie Hollinger
Notice they removed the trim molding on these glass door panels
resulting in a more modern look. I love the fun pop of color inside
And a surprise element on the back of this island – instead of painting they faced it with old weathered pallet boards!!! This is a kitchen you could easily see in any current home magazine – I would want to live here year round.
Nicole transformed her oak kitchen cabinets with Pebble reclaim
a little dark but you can see the transition happening….
Here’s a great angle, with better lighting – I had to look back at the other photos, to see if the appliances or back splash had changed – and they are the same… Love how the updated cabinets bring the whole kitchen together, and the floor looks amazing with it…
Nicole also used the paint to update her oak railing
She also painted a bedroom set that was still in great condition, it just didn’t work as well into their cleaner, more transitional color scheme
She used our Licorice reclaim, truly like day and night…
Susan from Mississippi shared:
My kitchen just sold in a week. Everyone loved it, and people have tried to hire me to paint their kitchens. I used the Textured Basecoat Peppercorn and Paprika – it was my first time using the paint 🙂
you can’t tell in the picture above that the Peppercorn is layered over the Paprika, but in the picture below you can see it.
This is our Barnworn Finish, where you brush on Textured Basecoat color #1, let it dry , brush on Chipping Creme, let it dry, brush over it with Textured Basecoat color#2, let it dry, sand and chip back to reveal color #1, then brush on a Toning Glaze . Very cool, very custom –
You ladies helped me in your store with the kind of paints to get, so I thought you might like to see the finished project. (This was my very first piece to redo!)
I sanded and restained the top. For the rest, I used reclaim licorice and added pewter mica to the clear coat to give it a little sheen.
I painted each knob and pull with the reclaim as well and added pewter mica on top with the clear coat.
Wendy from Chesaning, Mi sent a lovely message:
…always hated the brass trim of the fireplace but, after replacing carpet with a bleached grey flooring and painting the living room walls grey with white trim, that fireplace trim had to go. I had one tablespoon of Reclaim Licorice and no time to wait for reordering but knowing how far that amazing paint goes, I opened my jar and got to work. After the Reclaim dried, I followed your blog on painting fireplace trim metallic to complement the new floor and modern look.
Amazingly, I had enough of that tablespoon of Reclaim paint left in the jar to put a stencil on a small table to use in the ‘Provence’ style wedding and to finish a few frames! Your paint is truly fabulous and you are my inspiration.
Thank you Wendy!
and this adorable nightstand, I think maybe this one was American Paint Rushmore?
and this was a tiki pole at her friends cottage, that she painted new life into, using colors of American Paint that she had left over… the before
and now, full of beach life!
I confess, I had way more to share than I realized, so I’m breaking this into 3 posts – why not, right?
