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.
