Our Customer Painting Projects

I have the online store how I’d like it.  Almost.   So I’m moving back to posting.  If you find something quirky or missing with the online store  let me know and I’ll fix it quick  🙂

Let’s start with projects customers have shared – many of these customers were brand new to this thing called ‘paint it yourself’.   No better way to inspire you!

American Paint Company Fireworks Red, Stencil detail, APC Black Wax

Too many of these custom wall units around to count, right? Here’s Michelle and Joe’s before –

Good chance you’ve tried selling, or checked around to see if it held any value….Look no further-

Beyond Linen with Molasses Glaze

Oak updated to WHITE with Beyond Bright White

These are all homeowners painting their own stuff –  that equates to big time savings….

Arrghhh…  not sure what this color is, but the cabinet is lovely!

Beyond’s Pewter is like a glamorous model in photos,  here’s Lisa’s glam redo-

More oak cabinets…  don’t have the paint color the used, reminds me of Beyond White or Offwhite with a Molasses or Dark Grey  Glaze?

Nanette refinished a side table using Botanical Mulberry and one of our European Aged Papers on the drawer front –

If you’re drawn to these papers, and would like to see our process of apply and aging around them,  you can watch the Episode 5 video I taped with Shelby TV .

Ann updated her oak cabinets with Beyond Nantucket

Ann said: These are 30 yr old cupboards – Used your product Beyond Reclaim (Nantucket) & sealed with your satin water based sealer.  Very satisfied.  Love the new look.

Jess took on a paint project for her MIL – this was the inspiration photo

Just that little bit of white pops this set!

These cabinets were originally white laminate.   A blend of Beyond Pebble and Beyond Versailles (now retired but similar to Soft Grey) , with Molasses Glaze and Umber Glaze –

Mary had fun using our Aged Papers in various ways.  Here is one, she used Botanical Mulberry and accented a cabinet front with one of the papers –
Sharon refinished her oak kitchen cabinets with Beyond Offwhite and Coffee Glaze

Beyond’s Mocha dark brown on the island –

For 34 doors she used 3/4 gallon of Offwhite,   3 thin coats both sides,    16 ounce glaze, and 16 ounce sealer with 2 coats.  (she opted to add an additional sealer for extra durability)

Kathy said:   My husband and I were in your store before Christmas looking for finishes for a frame project. After looking at the “fabulous ” samples we decided on Beyond Licorice base paint, Metallic Statuary Bronze and your Black Glaze. This was so different from what I had originally thought to do and the result was “fabulous “. The directions offered for using the finishes was easy to follow and very helpful. 

I don’t recall the color used over this oak kitchen, but I do remember being wow’d at the time –  LOVED the way they finished off the island – lets say they used either Beyond Pebble or Soft Grey –

maybe our lovely customer that transformed this kitchen will see this and confirm the color used 🙂

Annalee updated her bathroom cabinets using Beyond Pebble and our Molasses Glaze

Jennifer and her husband started with a room full of traditional cherry furniture

–  We used the Beyond Reclaim Paint mixing Pebble and White in a 2/1 ratio.  We also used your Dark Grey Glaze and then your topcoat Matte Sealer. We love it and the paint was easy to work with.

How romantic this room feels, the soft grey color playing off the natural floor and calming blue walls –

LOVE IT!

Irene’s husband refinished parts of their great room furniture- don’t remember the exact color used –

Blessings to you!

We Love When Our Customers Share Their Projects!

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-

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

and almost put back together – She used our Botanical mineral paint color Willow

Knudsen-Fabulous-Finishes-Kitchen1

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 White and our Less Intense Molasses Glaze.

Hard to see the table detail, but the finish looked like this

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

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.

bed_headboard_painted_glazed_fabfinisher (2)

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.

LOVE IT!!

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 a 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

Lynn’s hutch makeover turned out amazing  –

lynn_hutch_painted_makeover_fabfinisher_cottage_paint_ash

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 cream with  American Paint Dark Vintage Wax to add that lovely antiquing effect, and a soft sheen and feel as well.

 

chest 2

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.

fabfinisher_painted_hope_chest_cottage_vanilla

No before, but here’s the after on this pretty painted table –

fabfinisher_botanical_salvia_textured_basecoat_parchment_dark_wax_apc

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.

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

One Of My Favorite Dixie Chests …a Reclaim Test

I acquired this Dixie furniture when I was at my first store,  four years ago.  The picture cuts off the dresser on the left is actually a triple, and around the corner were two narrow bookcase units

DSC_7038

I don’t usually buy up full sets of furniture, but I loved the style and the condition was mint.   The pair of nightstands and armoire chest moved on to my current store, and this past Spring I decided they would be perfect for my next paint project –

fabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chestfabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_nightstand_lace_plaster_top

I decided to try a mix of our Reclaim paint and Botanical paint.  Reclaim is a waterbased low voc paint that bonds to near any surface, and unlike the other paint lines we carry, it also has a sealer in it. But Reclaim is not a ‘brush on’ type paint like our other paints – it functions best as a rolled on paint . If you brush Reclaim it will show application marks  aka brush strokes, especially the heavier you apply the paint.  We tell our customers if they have to brush the Reclaim , say parts of a chair or areas that are hard to roll, then apply the paint in light layers and try to keep your application strokes the same.

fabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_gardenia

The Botanical paint, also created by Caromal Colours,  is more like a chalky type paint, low voc’s, and most often is applied by brush.  It actually brushes out lovely, and doesn’t HAVE to have a finish coat over it to stay put, but it dries out to a flat chalky feel.  Colorwise, the lightest neutral of Botanical is Gardenia, an offwhite (top left).

I mixed part Botanical Gardenia, Part Off White Reclaim and part Bright White Reclaim, and started applying, thin, by brush

fabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_paint_process (1)

I used our Textured Plaster  

 

and bladed it through one of our thicker stencils

fabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_raised_plaster_damask_door_panels (4)

The original hardware would be refinished to a brass/bronze color, but I wanted something special on the top drawer.   I used several decorative backs, added a metal whispy knob, painted it to a pretty brass/bronze color, and added Swarovski crystals to complete the look

fabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_bronze_accents_custom_knob

You can see in this photo how the paint is in various stages of coverage, the upper section still showing it’s original yellowy colorfabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_raised_plaster_damask_door_panels (5)

I let both panels dry, the went back to dry brushing, to get the finish even

fabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_raised_plaster_damask_door_panels (1)

After that I went to work dressing up the piece, giving it those added touches that I love, to make it a one of a kind special…   I stenciled the inner drawer fronts,  and gave the inside and out of each drawer a freshening up of colorfabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_bronze_accents (6)

The top, originally that pear yellow color formica, needed to go deeper, I envisioned a pecan color to coordinate with the hardware, so I started to layer to achieve that result –fabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_bronze_accents (7)fabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_bronze_accents (1)

fabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_bronze_accents (2)

The remainder of the hardware was refinished to the brass/bronze color, sealed and embellished with Swarovskis’s to complete the look

 I’m really pleased with the that old formica top –   one of my favorite finishes back from my faux finishing days, creating authentic wood grain finishes –

fabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_bronze_accents (3)

fabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_bronze_accents (8)

Definitely one of my favorite chests, not just for how it ended up looking, but for the whole package – the lovely design and furniture quality

fabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_bronze_accents (9)

Look at all that storage!dixie_chest_custom_painted_chalk_wood_grainWhen it came time for the petite nightstands, I finished them pretty much the same way except for the tops.   The tall chest had that  ‘fantasy/faux’ wood grain finish,  where I tried to get to that color tone that I saw in my head. In those cases I have no recipe to follow, I just trial and error until it works.   I  would have a miserable time trying to recreate an exact match.   Plus the nightstands were lower and I felt a darker top would weigh the pieces down…..

I decided to use that same plaster through lace for the tops-

fabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_nightstand_lace_plaster_top

Here, in the photo below, I’ve already painted over the dried plaster lace on the tops

fabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_nightstands (2)

Yay!  I sanded tops and the tinted pattern popped through, leave just enough to dress up the tops.

fabulous_finishes_studio_dixie_french_provencial_chest_painting_vintage_white_nightstands (3)

The pieces coordinated well with each other, and just last week a customer put a claim on the trio

Sharing Projects From Our Workshops…

Trying to round out the posts – customers projects,  things I’m working on, and all the fun paint projects created in our workshops –

A layered, chippy finish can be obtained a number of ways – here the texture on the first layer is Textured Basecoat Peppercorn, but instead of ‘chipping creme’ and then another Textured Basecoat  she used American Paint Co’s Fireworks Red, one coat painted on just enough to cover.  When it dries you can sand with a 150 grit to get thru to the textured base, and you can damp rag it to reveal as well.

I think APC Dark Wax completed this finish-
