Works In Progress August 28, 2014
What a week! We’ve been busy and I want to share just a few projects we’re working on.
This bistro table used to be a cherry finish, that has been updated, using Amy Howard’s Graphite One Step paint. One of my top favorites!
The three pieces, including the stools, painted in Linen and recovered, in a grain sack style fabric, are now in the front of the shop, to greet visitors. I wish I had been thoughtful enough to photograph the before version!
What about a little stencil work? The curio cabinet needed some love! I had thought about adding bead board to the back of the cabinet, for added texture and interest. But to keep the costs down, stenciling seemed like a wonderful alternative.
The cabinet makes a great display case for our jewelry pieces, but I’m sure you can think of other uses!
Now, if you’re like me, you’ve seen about 17,000 pieces of French Provincial furniture like this. We decided this would e a perfect piece to try a new technique out on. I’ve got to perfect the technique, but so far, I love it! It’s a great alternative to distressing.
Stay tuned…there’s more to come!
And don’t forget to join us for Girl’s Night Out on September 10th! Sales, raffle prizes, new items, wine and nibbles! 4-6:30, WEDNESDAY, September 10th!
Remember, Amy Howard’s One Step increases from $32 to $34/quart, next week!
