Continuing with our customers shared projects, here’s a project type that we haven’t shared in awhile – a REFRIGERATOR. Nicole in Florida sent this before
Remember, most paint projects always look scary after the first coat 🙂 Here is the final, perfectly placed in this lovely kitchen –
Robin sent a few pictures of her oak kitchen going dark – using Mocha Reclaim
If you have interest in tacking your own project using these paints, you will find easy links that, when you click on them, will take you to that product in our online store.
Pretty custom, pretty cool!
Karen shared some outdoor projects she dressed up using our American Paint Company chalk and clay paints –
This countertop make-over was easy peasy – the before
And this from one of our customers in South Carolina-
Hi Patty, A shiny brass chandelier before, I used Textured Basecoat Parchment and Toner. I smooshed and “tapped” Parchment all over. Applied Toner heavy then dabbed with a paper towel to get the light and dark areas. Thanks for your inspiration!!!! Blessings, Susie
Before, a lovely brass fixture, class and could stand the test of time, right? Sure, unless you are changing the feel of a room, or your whole house – then you could either replace it with a new one, OR keep this one intact and give it a new look…
Christina was updating her daughter’s bedroom when she came into our store. She brought a sample of the new bedding with her, to see what color she could use to update the oak furniture, which included a LARGE wall unit and another dresser…
I wish she’d have shared a before photo – she hated the hardware, but they were unique in size, making it difficult to replace without costing a fortune. I told her to go right over the hardware – let it blend right in with the pieces –
I know she used Reclaim, I just have to confirm if she used Mocha, or if she mixed two colors together – Mocha and ButterCreme– to get a softer brown (Mocha reclaim is a dark dark brown, like bakers chocolate). We have a number of sample color boards in our store that we call BLENDS – a mix of two, sometimes even three colors of Reclaim, in varying ratios – creating colors differet than the main deck – like these
She also picked up some American Paint Company Coral Reef, and used that to paint this mirror
Christina was thrilled with the results, and her daughter loved her new bedroom!
Caroline sends this:
Love the way these came out!
I used APC Plymouth Rock with your Dark Grey Glaze and APC hard coat.
Thanks for the inspiration!
Karen forwarded these great before and after photos, and says
Sorry this took me forever to email to you. It was hard to get good lighting to really show them off.
2 coats Reclaim Linen
1 coat Reclaim sealer
Thank you for your advice! Love my kitchen again:)
It is do-it-yourself-able, it just takes a commitment to make yourself Get It Done… and when you take the leap, your finish line will look like this 🙂
