Decorative Furniture Painting.

Hello there!,

I can’t think of anything better to do on a cold, wintry day, than to paint furniture! I do a lot of that, these days! In fact, I recently told a friend that I think we could have world peace, if everyone had a paint brush in their hand. Don’t you think?

The last few days, I’ve been trying my hand at some new techniques.

I have a motto, “If it doesn’t sell, re-paint it!” Such is the case with this little table.

I use the stencil for the lower shelf and hand-painted the dots all by myself! :-)

There’s a wonderful new product, by Maison Blanche, called Glacage. It’s a product that allows you to add texture to a piece, whether you brush it on or use a stencil.
I started with an old cabinet door, that I found in a yard sale.

First I taped the stencil onto the center panel. Then, I used a spatula and applied the Glacage over the stencil.
Once that had dried, I painted the piece and dark waxed it.

Isn’t it great? I used the same technique on this drawer front.

More fun than a barrel of monkeys!

Hope you are doing well!,

    • Thanks Donnamae!, So far, so good! I feel like I’m using building blocks, trying to create the kind of place I’d like to visit. I really enjoy explaining all the options for painting, to visitors. Do you paint furniture?

  12. I was painting something in my house yesterday, and all I could think was how much I hate it, and how much of it I seem to do for someone who hates it so much!! I’m jealous – I wish I enjoyed it, but i just don’t!

    • Hello there!, I have a lot to learn, but find it very relaxing. (As long things are going as hoped!). I don’t do walls, but give me a piece of furniture and I’m happy. Thanks for stopping by!

  13. What a transformation for a simple door! You are very, very talented madam.
