Another one of our amazing finishes as we push the boundaries of what is possible.
The high gloss finish is almost glass like and makes a statement whether it is on furniture or walls.
Bold is beautiful.
I love Chippy furniture and I cannot lie!! What I don’t love is Chippy furniture that keeps chipping 5 years after I painted it👎🏻!! I finally found the best top coat ever for fixing this problem I shared the whole process of sealing this piece and my new favorite furniture project in my bio link! Also quick update on Tristan’s appt! His appt went really well and he is cleared to resume regular activities. Unfortunately he has some extensive testing to still undergo and will start that in August. Several more scans of his spine were ordered at his appt. These tests will tell us if he has additional issues with his spinal cord and give us a some more information on damage caused by his tethered cord. He is in great spirits! Enjoying his first few days back to school this week and totally back to his happy self telling me all about his favorite dinosaurs and peokemon like it’s his job to know everything about both topics! I sure love him soo much! And I’m glad that his circumstances rarely ever get him down! We will keep on pushing forward! #spinalsurgery#baddaysdontlastforever#farmhousestyle#cottage#furniture#furnituremakeover#paintedfurniture#milkpaint#ourattitudeisourchoice#tetheredcord#tetheredspinalcord
This beautiful pie safe with the original tin punch doors would be a great focal piece in any room. Hand painted in turquoise and cobalt blue with copper accents with layered technique, it will add a touch of rustic elegance to your space. I love seeing items of furniture that used to have a specific function in the household being repurposed in different areas of the house. I would put a small one in my guest bathroom to store towels and other toiletries in. Where would you use one?
Pie safe on the first pic is available at Bon Vivant, 9 Reed st, Asheville. @bonvivantavl and it is currently on sale for only $300!
We offer shipping and delivery

There was no time to stage this beauty but I wanted pictures of it. It began as a creamy off white and over time, layers and layers of color were added. I'm calling this finish "Driftwood". I hope the new owners love it as much as I do!

I can’t decide if its to hot or I’m to overweight 🙈
One thing is for sure I certainly sweated Over this piece.
Victorian waterfall ball & claw foot table set with two sets 3 miss matched chairs,
I sometimes like to imagine more than one life when I create my pieces,
I started with old white as my base coat on all this set,
Then overlaying in steps with Florence then Paris grey and a old white & pure mix,
The chairs are 3 ball and claw chairs
3 Queen Anne chairs all high backs.
Once I finished applying ascp colours,
I distressed each chair slightly different as I imagined 6 separate people using them,
Every piece had paint & waxes applied the same way ,
I used dark wax black wax clear wax to remove excess and white wax to soften everything down ,
The table top was sanded with a electric sander to remove years of varnish ,
I then finished by hand towards the end,
I used the following technique for the table top i black wax within the bare wood to show the knots and make them pop a little then more dark wax for depth and then used 3 separate fiddes supreme waxes for my final colouring and sealed with Annie Sloan clear wax for my buffed finish and she shines beautifully,
The chairs was covered by @other_side_of_the_workshop she always does my upholstery for me I’m proven hopeless 💙she also helped me with my choice of material one being a grey velvet with stripes of blue and dark grey with black specs and the other is a heavy teal fabric,
The pieces was distressed and finished with all Annie Sloan waxes brown ,black ,white and clear wherever I felt best to place all sealed with clear wax 💙
Thank you if you got this far 🙈
