Projects Painted and Sold Using Missouri Limestone Chalk-based Paint

This is another piece I really hated selling.  I was so wishing I had a 4 season room.  I would have kept this little table set in a heartbeat.

This 1880’s sofa table is very long.  It really needed a paint job so we gave it one.  I distressed this piece with vaseline.  : )

The original use for this spool was for electrical wiring a Lowe’s.  We transformed this into a little table, just perfect for a beach house.  I called a friend who had just purchased a beach house as a second home.  She thought so, too.  It is now happily content in its new home.  : )

I had this waterfall set and custom painted it for a customer.  She wanted the dresser to be gray with some of the wood still showing.  The wardrobe’s inspiration was from a piece she saw on Pinterest.  We even found the same exact vinyl design on Amazon.

Another Steam Punk look for a customer that loves the look.  The middle piece of marble was broken on this coffee table and had been replace by a piece of glass.  We covered a thin board with this map fabric from Jo-Ann’s and it fit perfectly under the glass.  Gave it a black paint job and sealed it with poly.

This was such a fun project!  This dated wooden nautical clock was blah, until I turned it into a Steam Punk look with a little black paint and wax.

Love Pinterest.  That’s where we got the idea to take chairs and turn them into a bench.  The bench is 3 chairs put together.  We used the back legs of the 4th chair to create the sides.  This bench sold with a table and chair set my friend was selling. Love how it all turned out.

This is one of my first “restoration hardware” looks I did.  I really enjoy trying out different painting techniques.

I loved painting the gray ombre desk so much, I painted the dresser that matched it the same way. The lady that bought the desk snatched up the dresser right away.ombredresser

I didn’t sell this one.  This is my front door, and my wrought iron furniture I have in my front yard.  The door is metal.  I did this about 3 months ago and still haven’t sealed it.  I’m not sure I will.  It is holding up well.

This hutch and desk was a drab, yellowish color and had seen better days.  Painting it with varying shades of pink made all the difference in the world.

This is one of my all time favorite pieces.  I would have kept this one if I had the room in my house.  finalpic finalpicatnightdeskhutch3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We had another client who had 6 chairs that needed painting.  We took that project on and delivered them back home this past week.  They look gorgeous with the dining room table that was handcrafted by the husband.  A beautiful set at the fraction of what a new one would cost.

Painted chairs – Missouri Limestone Paint – January


This little vanity table was a family heirloom.  It had been “antiqued” by the client’s grandmother back in the 1960’s.  Read more about that here.  The client had admired the Ombre desk I had completed and so the vanity has the same type of look, with the addition of a stencil to give it a french-style look.
