Time Flies, Even When You’re Not Having Fun!

April arrived, set to be a busy month.  Easter morning we were on a plane, flying out of Detroit, on our way to a big ship in the ocean, chaperoning our daughter and five friends during spring break.   A year ago we were on our way to Mexico for my son’s spring break…

Milestones like this make me think back, way back….   when did my kids grow up?

It was busy the week before I left –  multiple workshops, and I’d been working on completing this custom painted vanity for a client –

painted_chalk_clay_vanity_voyage_2

They wanted it similar to this piece I’d painted –

DSC_5505

I used American Paint Company Voyage, and Stenciled with various APC colors, and sealed with APC Hardcoat and Topcoat Finish

The week off was a lovely change – the weather was perfect every day – I soaked in the vitamin D and much needed sleep

IMG_4464

Even while away from work, I’d find myself noticing things – like this guy’s shirt that looked like one of our Monahan Botanical papers

IMG_4507

or the paint colors as we ventured on island excursions…IMG_4541

It was a joy sharing fun moments with this crazy group of five –  I made sure to take a zillion pictures, so they’d have them to look back on…   spring_break_fabulous_finishes

I was drawn to this designer – such artistic detail

Boy if I won the lottery….   :)

lev1lev2Home Sunday, back to work Monday,  feeling a need for another week off just to recover.   These flowers arrived, a pretty thank you for watching over the girls…

The week was a whirl – I  got moving on a customer’s vanity – she wants a metallic finish with a wood grained look on the top

I’m about 2/3’s done…

custom_wood_grain_painted_finish

I had to quote painting a 15 foot statue (she’s in parts) for a popular yearly music festival music – Electric Forest –  held in Rothbury, Michigan.

???????????????????????????????????????????????

If I get the job, they’d deliver her to my studio in a large crate  – a crate full of body parts :)   How cool would that be?   Would love to turn her into an earthy queen of the forest…

This past week we also received another customer ‘to do’ project…  six chairs and two curios –

A black finish with some reveal is requested,  trust that I REALLY tried to talk this client into a DIY project, but she wanted no part it.  Looks like we need to get busy painting!

Saturday ended this action packed back-to-work week, with another monthly taping of Shelby DIY TV.   This show will discuss taking items you can find around the house,  painting them in a variety of ways,  and then protecting them with Caromal’s awesome Reclaim Indoor/Outdoor Sealer

shelby_diy_tv_paint_plastic_toys

Old pots and pans can make great outdoor (even indoor) wall art –

shelby_diy_tv_painted_fry_pan_patio_decor

same with very over sized grilling tools

shelby_diy_tv_painted_patio_decor

What about the cheap clamp light – granted, not made for outdoor use, but I’d use this under my patio umbrella for a night of ambiance…   just take it inside when the evening is over.

shelby_diy_tv_painted_patio_light

A Salvation Army find – 2 identical Fisher Price plastic trucks – in the TV show it picks up a load of pansies :)

shelby_diy_tv_painted_truck_planter

How many of us have these glass vases from past flower deliveries, stuffed in a cupboard?   Perfect for decorating your summer table…

Even plastic ware can get a new look –

This strainer was stinkin cute with the pansies in it –

I’ll share the link this week once the episode is live.

I ended Saturday waxing the purple piece – purple_ombre_paint_chalk_wax

I’ll buff it this week, and probably should put the glass back in it. Is it just me, or do you also prefer these sans glass?   A few minor ‘tweeks’ and this one will be complete .

Our new shopping site is coming along – STORE.FABFINISHER.COM .   Our original shopping site is still functional, and won’t be removed until our credit card merchant, Chase, passes all of its safety requirements, for accepting credit payments.  It might already of happened, last I heard it was any day.

It’s good feeling to be back –  until next time,  happy painting!

Shelby DIY TV #7 – Simple Countertop Paint Finishes

Our customers frequently ask  –

Can I use these paints on my Formica counters?

Does it stay on?

Is it labor intensive?

Is it expensive?

Our typical answers-

Yes, all of our various DIY paint lines will ‘technically’ adhere to formica, without sanding, stripping, priming,  but we definitely favor a few over the others, for longer durability. Caromal Colours Reclaim line of paints offers a  paint specifically for countertops, and Caromal’s Artisan Collection’s Textured Basecoats work great for counters (heck, any) surfaces as well.

The paint finishes, properly sealed, cure to a durable, washable surface.  I’ll often point at our entry ceramic tile, that 1 1/2 yrs ago received a similar paint finish, and it still looks fabulous (you can find that post here)

painted-ceramic-tile-caromal-colours-fabulous-finishes

Labor intensive?  I wouldn’t call it that – the most you’ll get is an arm workout or wrist cramp…

fabulous-finishes-rolling-paint-caromal-colours-reclaim-paint-counters

The cost,  an average $65 for a solid color, (paint, sealer, roller) to $125 for multiple colors for layering or adding dimension.

The simplest, most straight forward finish – Reclaim Countertop Paint – a bonder, primer, finisher paint,  no sanding, stripping or priming needed.

reclaim-countertop-paint-fabulous-finishes-diy-paint-caromal-colours

Roll on 2 coats of paint,  add RECLAIM Countertop Flecks (optional), and RECLAIM Multi-purpose Sealer for a durable, washable surface.

My favorite paints to start with,  on surfaces like formica, ceramic, marble or glass, are the Textured Basecoat Paints, also by Caromal Colours (part of their Artisan Collection).  Again, no sanding, stripping or priming needed.  It is a thicker, buttery, get all jiggy with it kind of paint.

I always start by whiz rolling 1-2 coats of textured basecoat

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-painting-counters-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0553

Two coats, rolled , and some glaze, can create a really cool look ( see a start to finish counter like this, here ).

You can roll a coat of Reclaim, then a coat of  textured basecoat , light sand and glaze, for looks like this

DSC_0378

It all comes down to fiddling…. sampling…  playing around with the paints… you NEED to do this – grab some old boards, paneling, even cardboard, and get a feel for what these paints do B4 tackling your counters –

We also host a Countertop Workshop, for those that want direction from the start…

This next one –   we’ve all seen one of these before right?

doors

They are worthy of updating, after all,  replacing isn’t that easy – most are custom fit.   I painted these for a client, and will say they would have been easier to paint hung.    Clean the surface well, tape off the glass, and then brush /roll one coat of Reclaim Licorice (black)

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0466

Let it dry, fine sand with a 400 grit, to remove any imperfections, and apply one more coat

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0468

Again, feel the surface for any imperfections –  light sand with a fine grit paper to remove.     Apply a metallic, brushing on thin coats until fully covered.

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0473

 

A black glaze, over the dried metallic finish, adds depth.

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0475

Lastly,  once the finish is good and dry, apply several coats of a hard topcoat for protection.  I used Minwax Wipe On Poly, Satin (oil based)

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0481

You could refinish yours with an eight ounce licorice, an eight ounce metallic blend,  an eight ounce black glaze,  a can of poly, and a brush.  About seventy-five bucks to replace the doors yourself.   And you’d even have some left to do a few other things laying around the house :)

Get your paint on!

Taste of My Week, A Camera Trail…

Last night, out with friends, I noticed my girlfriend had over 2500 images on her Iphone.  Think about that,  2500 pictures!   Every day we have customers pulling out their phones or Ipads,   showing us a project they completed using our products

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0199

a photo of our customers recent island re-do using Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Cobblestone, and Toner

or photos of inspiration

I want my kitchen cabinets to look like this…

and the classic

I want to paint this …

jjj

Often, they can’t find the photo they want to show us – they swipe, and swipe, and swipe through all these tiny images – a rewind into their past

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0245

That’s how I felt this weekend, loading up my camera SD card – it was a pictorial rewind of my week

We got our display of new bath bombs set up

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0238

I rolled this piece out to the floor

DSC_1392a

Created some accessories…

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0217

I really liked the color of this metal container – it was black to start with and I drybrushed several greens and neutrals over it – might have to try that on something bigger…

DSC_1495 [1600x1200]

A green glossy ceramic pot (I changed the finish to a white and grey glazed crackle)  in need of a fresh plant that I didn’t have (nor want, because anything alive won’t last around me)…  how do you stage it?   I found that this container fit it just right –  it’s priced separately…

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0218

Rolled this one out to the floor as well  – I used Caromal Colours Reclaim Offwhite, brushed on in thin layers, and then glazed it.  I started with Caromal’s Black Brown Glaze and a custom mix of a green glaze – didn’t like that, so I added in Molasses glaze and some Toner and got rid of the green glaze – that was better, but still not quite right, so I waxed it with a little APC Dark Wax and a little APC Clear Wax mixed with black pigment.   Waxing over Reclaim is much more subtle – think of it like polishing a piece of furniture that’s already been sealed –

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0244

The inside was backed with our lovely aged Botanical papers (coming to our online shopping cart soon!)

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0243

The insides of the upper and lower cabinets and drawers were stained to bring them back to life, but the sides of the drawers got a splash of color – actually   I used three of our new Cottage Paint colors   – Groovy Green, Killer Khaki and Trendy Truffle (coming to our online shopping cart soon!), and stenciled randomly, using black and white stencil creme

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0242

I freshened up  the original hardware using Reclaim Mocha, a darkened bronze, and black licorice glaze

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0239

I always find a way to add a touch of Swarovski (coming soon to our online store)

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0241

We hung a few hearts

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0213

and when I take that picture, I find myself taking another, of the piece it sits on  – I  just love this hardware….

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0212

Ate WAY too many of these this week.  They were tasteless yet addicting…

I took another round of store photos, to send to our ad agent –

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0224

We run an ad in a magazine mailer every couple months, and I like to change out a few of the photos, to keep it fresh and engaging.  Sometimes a close up works,

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0223

but I  like the pictures that are on overload-

unboxed a few others

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0209

I love this one…

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0234

Put these out

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0231

I finally priced a number of pieces that I finished recently.  I hate this part and wish it was easier for me.   It depends on the quality of the piece, the condition, the size, the depth of the finish- how many layers,  how detailed , the techniques applied…

and if its one of my favorites, then it’s even harder to put a number to.  Like this one – I want to keep but have no where to put it….

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0222

I took pictures of some grey paints that we have, for one of my customers  from afar.  She emailed me with questions, and it was easier for me to shoot her back visuals –

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0221

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0220

I painted this oak door panel with Cottage Paint Killer Khaki and Bold Black.  The top half I glazed with Black Glaze, the bottom was the black crackled over the khaki.  For a shimmer I added APC wax with Brass Mica (coming soon to our online store).

I loved the bottom combination and wanted to try it on something bigger…

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0235

So i dug out this chest, actually acquired when I was back at my first store, over two years ago!   I’ll keep track of the progress…

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0236

Saturday morning started with a 9am Creating Art with Botanical Papers Workshop.  We start with a glass framed piece of art, and using our paints and finishes, create a new work of art :)

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0207

Out of hundreds of aged papers, two of our peeps chose the same one!  I love how they turned out…

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0219

Finally painting the phone booth I acquired from an estate sale last summer… Originally red, we’re taking it blue

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0206

in honor of WHO?       I had no clue who Dr. Who was, but several suggested, after seeing the phone booth, that if we painted it  blue they would buy it…

dr-who_1554344c

Lastly,  these decorative resin/stone finals got dressed up with some new variegated leaf that I was trying out –

fabulous-finishes-studio-inspiration-painted-furniture-workshops-metro-detroit-diy-paints-shop-online0205

Aren’t they pretty?  The plan is to hang them from pretty ribbons…
