triple play

I’ve got not one, not two, but three before & afters for you today.  Thank me later, friends.

Let’s start with this little repurposed wall hook.  It started out as salvaged, old 5-panel door cut into sections. 

One section was painted Duck Egg Blue with a contrasting Emperors Silk accent. This is what using a lot of dark wax looks like.

Then an old wooden door knob was attached to make for a unique hook.  The Welcome text finishes it off!

This chair has been floating around my garage for nearly a year. It was finally up for a makeover.

The chair originally had a caned seat but that was long gone and this wooden one was in its place.  I rolled with the new-to-it seat but gave it a light coat of ASCP Cream and new upholstery tacks.  The rest of the chair was painted in Arles with dark wax all over.

And finally I’ve got a little pine accent table for you.  It used to look like this.  Ho-hum.

Just one coat of Emperors Silk allows for the grain of the wood to show through and dark wax accents the grain even further.

Right away I envisioned a nautical compass on top.  I painted it on in Arles and distressed it giving a crackled look.

There you have it.  Three before and afters to take you into the weekend.
