Did you catch or 3rd episode on DIY TV?  You’ll be able to see HOW I added that embedded stenciling on the buffet above.   Find the link in our How-To Videos category.

Completed this foyer table this week as well.

A finish I still fret over –  and one I always end with “Thank You LORD!”

We started the day with an early riser Cabinet Painting Workshop.   Surprisingly, it sold out (the 9am start is not our most popular 🙂 )  .  I am hoping to have the new workshop schedule completed and online this coming week.

Painted Metallic Pieces I Need To Pin – Past, and My Current Favorite Silver Transformation…

On a roll, getting all these pictures grouped and posted  – it feels good to be making progress , scratching items off the TO DO list…

My 2 previous posts were on my past chalk/clay paint creations and my Caromal Colours pieces.  This post is dedicated to metallic related furniture pieces that I’ve finished.

My  previous life, when work was creating pretty finishes on walls and ceilings,  I loved using metallics – metallic paints, glazes, waxes, foils, leaf…

I  transformed this  client’s fireplace mantel from white to antiqued silver

Made by Dixie, this bedroom suite was like new.  It’s original state was antique whitewash.  I based it with Caromal Reclaim Mocha, applied my metallic finish on the base, and then wood grained the top-

Ugh, I Had The Address Wrong On My Grand Opening???!!!

Big Duh… that’s all I can say…

Today was the big day –  well, a baby kinda day – a soft opening of sort…   given the holiday weekend, and school starting next week, we decided to hold off any press releases until the week of September  12th… that way the money spent on marketing will be put to better use.

All in all, we were blessed today – with lovely company in the form of new and old visitors, beautiful bouquets of flowers, product sales, and…   an evening where we arrived home before 830pm!

Let’s catch up, shall we?

This is an old twin headboard (or footboard) that I found – I rolled it with 2 coats of Reclaim Offwhite ,   then sanded to beat up,  brushed on  a mix of Tea Stain  Glaze and Coffee Glaze and wiped off with a rag.  Done.  Next day hubster mounted the two 1/2 off Hobby Lobby hook things I found –

Re purposed Coat Rack!

An old bi-fold closet door I picked up at a garage sale for a few bucks… cut it in half and will mount this behind my eventual work tub – its a great drying rack for stencils…   added that In Your Words Lifestyle Phrase from Caromal Colours – you simply stick it to your wall, and use whatever paint you want to create your letters…  I used brown and blue textured basecoats-

the first of three most fabulous work tables that were hand crafted by Steve Larocca –  4 foot tables with locking casters,  and a storage ledge –  whoo hoooooo!   I’m going to Aurastone one in a black top to dress up the ‘design’ area – the other two can be decorated from workshop use –

Reclaim pieces –  a moo-cow mocha dresser that I need to doctor the spots up so they dont look so KIDNEY BEAN ish…. ,  then a Reclaim Licorice,  and a Reclaim Sage

All kinds of design books… great way to get ideas

Repainting Caromal Colours Barnworn Finished Furniture…

That lasted two years…      our refinished basement furniture,  that is. (you can read about the first refinish here)

I’ve been thinking about all the furniture in my house, and what I’ll really want to keep when we move.  Our house now is bigger than I’ll want or need next time around, so no sense paying to move extra stuff that won’t fit next time.

This furniture I refinished a couple years ago, using Caromal Colours textured basecoat paint Chocolate and Cobblestone, would be something I’d not need again – except  it really is a nice large desk workspace –

and it has a nice compact storage unit

My high school age son has outgrown the desk in his bedroom

We got his Stanley youth bedroom set when Nick was a toddler.  I tried to make sure we didn’t buy ‘kiddy’ furniture –  hoped it would last until he moved away to college.

The furniture is in good shape, and I like the design – the headboad is full/queen size, and the nightstand is a larger version (I think it was called a Bachelor Chest) –

I like the chest of drawers next to the desk – but the desk itself is peuny in size,  considering my son is probably 5’8″ and still growing?

So my plan is to garage sale the desk and hutch, and refinish (Caromal) the remaining pieces so they are more ‘current’ for a teenage dude.

I asked him if he’d like to swap his desk for the bigger basement desk – he didn’t like that idea, said the color is ‘ugly’.    Bah.

I told him color isn’t an issue… the paint fairy lives here for geeze sakes!  So we proceeded to figure how just WHAT finish he would want.  His decision?  Peppercorn (black) over Pumpkin (orange)  like this-

(my mother:

Isn’t that going to be  like Halloween?)

Gotta love mothers!

Downstairs we went, to test out the color selection. My son was giddy, exclaiming ,

I get to be in your blog!

(he thinks the sister, two cats and dog get more face time…)

Over the edges of the cobblestone-chocolate furniture I brushed on Pumpkin –  (I’ll explain my madness later)

Let  dry.  Then I brushed over it with Chipping Creme

When dry, I painted the whole drawer with Peppercorn (black)

I have to confess,  the Peppercorn is my fav color… it covers like tar –

I get smart and realize my SON is right next to me, and of course, he wants face time

so I put him to work

Isn’t that ironic how he was also in the post two years ago? This desk is MEANT to be his!   After it was dry, I sanded to distress using 120 grit sand paper. The paint will dull and get powdery looking , but that’s okey – it will LIVEN up later…

Crack open the Toner,  a nice easy to use glaze/stain type product, brush it on then wipe it off with a dry rag-

Oh Nick, love your choice – total dude finish…

So my ulterior motive?  I think I can go right over his existing furniture real easy

– barely using any Pumpkin and  Chipping  Creme on the edges – because the original furniture is similar to that toned pumpkin color that will be coming through the black…  that way it will save me time and money, only having to multi layer (pumpkin, chipping creme, peppercorn, toner)   the green furniture –

Nick likes the finish – so it’s a go.  I’ll repaint this desk and shelf set with Pumpkin and Peppercorn, and will paint the headboard, nightstand  and chest as well, mostly using Peppercorn.    I don’t think we’ll be moving until end of summer so I have some time.

I point out, while we’re admiring the new finish, that he could use his furniture as one large chalkboard, since the textured basecoats work with chalk-

Then again maybe we should just nix the chalk idea…
