It’s always fun to see what our customers are doing, how they tackle projects with our products…
Here are some recent pictures-
This kitchen was shared last time around, but the counters and a few other pretties weren’t complete. The proud owner shared a more recent photo of her updated kitchen – the before
and the after, cabinets painted and glazed by the homeowners themselves
Updated, painted oak cabinets, using Reclaim White with Coffee Glaze.
A pair of fun chairs using several of our chalk and clay paints by American Paint Company. Using our Fish Fossil Stencil with our Stone Plaster adds a great raised design-
How about this laminate counter update?
Formica Counter before
Formica counter base layer, rolled textured basecoat peppercorn
Formica counter, middle layer/s – the fun part, where you can roll, scrape, stipple, sponge other colors of textured basecoat paints – this was textured basecoat paprika and textured basecoat hazelnut.
Formica counter final steps – light sand to remove any grit, richen up the painted finish using our Toner glaze, and then add several coats of our Fabulous sealers.
A workshop attendee completed this chair frame in one of our Paint a Piece workshops
She used one of our light Cottage Paint colors, I’m thinking it was Stone with our Less Intense Molasses Glaze
This kitchen update comes all the way from South California 🙂 Suzie’s before
and almost put back together – She used our Botanical mineral paint color Willow
Dawn visited her father in Florida, and his several pieces of oak furniture that no longer worked for him. He wanted a lighter, weathered wood feel, and chose a barnworn finish on the table, and a softer color on the rest.
They used Textured Basecoat colors Putty and Wisteria with our Molasses Glaze. The remaining pieces were painted with our Cottage Paint Wonder White, and our Less Intense Molasses Glaze.
Hard to see the table detail, but the finish looked like this
Rhonda gave her nightstands a nice makeover, adding decorative legs and then painting with our American Paint Company Freedom Road
Here are some pictures of my Master Bathroom using your Reclaim Off White and your Molasses Less Intense Glaze. I’m so thankful to have stumbled upon your website and love all of your inspiration and products! I only wish I lived nearby to check out your store in person. Adrienne Monument, Colorado
Lovely transformation, using Reclaim offwhite and our Less Intense Molasses Glaze, over honey oak cabinets.
This customer updated a pink desk, and an unfinished accompanying chair
using our paints and stencils
How adorable is this?
One of our regular customers online, Katherine from Arkansas, shared this headboard project she completed:
Here’s a before and after – The first is the stripped raw wood with a watered down Reclaim Pebble. You can see half of the head board is done.
The second photo is after the Caromal Colours Toner
was brushed on in in direction of the wood grain but not wiped back. I just brushed until it no longer had streaks. Toner worked beautifully! Over the weekend I tried different glazes and said to myself ” it just doesn’t have enough bite” Then I remembered you saying how toner has a great bite to it! Thanks so much! It’s exactly the look I was going for.
Shannon painted this cabinet using a custom teal Cottage Paint color we tinted for her. This is a great way to accommodate our customers when they have a specific color in mind they they can’t find with our current line of paints. She used some of our American Paint colors that she had left over from other projects to paint and stencil the inside –
Branko completed his kitchen cabinet project, and what a difference , don’t you agree? They are thrilled!
Linda shared her project, a 4′ kitchen cabinet for their cottage in Lexington. She used our custom tinted Cottage Paint color French Blue, sanded the edges, and finished it with our Durable Satin Sealer –
Another amazing kitchen, the before
The beginning, probably for many what seems like ‘The Point of No Return” or even “Oh Shit, Here We Go!”
You invest the hours – your time and effort, some even sweat… and then you see finish line ahead
and you are pumped! You may have started like this
but you end, chanting OH YA!!!!!!
Awesomeness…. you’re covered here at the Fab – I trust our product lines, and our sales associates are knowledgeable and here to help you find what you need 🙂
Lynn’s hutch makeover turned out amazing – she used our custom tinted Cottage Paint Color ASH and our Molasses Glaze
This hope chest started its transformation in one of our Paint a Piece Workshops. Our customer brought in the chest, minus the top (otherwise the piece would have been too large to complete) and painted it with our Cottage Paint custom color Vanilla. Over that she used our American Paint Dark Vintage Wax to add that lovely antiquing effect, and a soft sheen and feel as well.
It’s a beautiful chest – she loved it for years in its darker form, but it was time for a lighter version. I love that she can still appreciate this piece that holds meaning to her.
No before, but here’s the after on this pretty painted table –
The customer used Textured Basecoat Parchment (cream) , Botanical Salvia (soft grey), both by Caromal Colours, and then aged it up using our American Paint Company Vintage Dark Wax
Here’s a gorgeous piece from one of our lovely customers in Texas – Kaye used a number of our products to customize this hutch, and I absolutely love it’s romantic feel.
Bathroom oak cabinets, updated using a mix of Reclaim Mocha and Linen
and this bathroom, both in the same house!
This one was finished with Mocha
Pat brought a couple kitchen cabinet doors to our Painting Cabinet class, and has us walk her through the painting process – she used a mix of Bright White and Off White Reclaim. She brought those same freshly painted, dried for a week, doors back the following weekend for our Glazing Cabinet class, and glazed them using our Umber Glaze –
A before family piano
an updated family piano, using Reclaim Nantucket Blue and our Black Glaze
Another kitchen 🙂
Erika charmed this cabinet up using our Cottage Paint custom color Tropical with our Caromal Colours Toner Glaze
We love our customers, and look forward to seeing what they do with our products…
