Arts Alive Chalk Paint Makeover

What an incredible day at the Discover Downtown Langley 26th Annual Arts Alive Festival! Both our tent on the road and the store were hopping with both new and return customers. 

Here is the buffet we chose for our Chalk Paint™ Makeover:

 

No sanding, No priming!

Svenska Blue is one of Annie Sloan's newer colours. We decided would be beautiful on this piece!

Before and after clear wax. Can you see the difference?

All of us at TPH love what we do and it was our honour to share it with you! For those of you who saw us painting, here is the finished piece. Have a wonderful day...with gratitude!

Ombre by Christina of The Reclaimed Heirloom

Meet Christina from The Reclaimed Heirloom. She is a fantastic painter and she uses Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan!

She agreed to come in and show us how she does her Ombre Paint Technique!

We gave her this tall lingerie dresser to work her magic on:

Here we go...😀

 

She started with Honfleur and moved into Amsterdam Green

 

At the top she worked into Cream. To keep the paint wet so she was able to blend, she kept misting it with a spray bottle.

Christina was kind enough to show us two methods to Ombre. 

She stippled the colours here to blend.

It looks like a beautiful landscape painting!

Christina has taken the dresser home to complete. We can't wait to see the final product! Come in today to take ombre or any Chalk Paint™ technique with us!

Inspiration Month Chalk Paint™ Rescue

Check out the transformation that took place at our free

Chalk Paint™️ Rescue Demo here at TPH.

Before:

We sanded the top to expose the raw wood. We will use Dark Chalk Paint™ wax on the top to give it a "stained look".

Candice painted the dresser body with a custom Chalk Paint™ mix including Napoleonic Blue, Graphite and Aubusson Blue.

After:

The paint was sealed with Clear then Dark Chalk Paint™ Wax. Candice even added a bit of Warm Gold Gilding Wax for a bit of sparkle!

Thank you everyone who joined us. We are so glad you found value and that your creativity was re-ignited.

Carrie's Front Door Makeover

Painting your front door with Chalk Paint™ is an easy and inexpensive way to give your home a new look and update!

Cottage Comfort

This outdoor space, painted by Annie Sloan Dutch Stockist Saense Sjans, is a brilliant image to help explain when to Lacquer and when to Leave! So: the walls, ceiling, rafters, and posts have been painted with Chalk Paint™ and left unsealed. These surfaces are all wooden and porous so absorb the paint well – as does brick or stone. They also aren’t regularly touched or cleaned with abrasive chemicals. The cabinets at the far end have been painted with a custom Chalk Paint™ mix (but it’s very similar to Svenska Blue if you’d like to emulate the look but aren’t confident with colour mixing). These have been lacquered, as have the table and bench. MA good rule of thumb is: garden furniture should be lacquered to protect or things with standing surfaces that water could pool on; walls, sheds, or structural details can be painted with Chalk Paint™ and left unsealed.

Happy Cottaging!

Thrift Store Bench Makeover

We have teamed up with Mission Thrift Store in Langley once again! We wanted to show you what you can do with a thrift store find!  It's great for the environment and you will create something very unique in the process!

The Mission Thrift Store gave us this bench that was available at their store to show how you can transform it. We love to up-cycle with Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan available here in the shop! 

How would you recreate this piece?

We decided to strip off the upholstery. It was damaged so it had to be done.

We took off the foam and pulled the staples to start to create the "deconstructed look".

The frame is solid wood and so sturdy! 

First we painted a coat of Old White Chalk Paint™.

We didn't worry so much about covering it completely because we want to layer another colour on top. We create lots of texture while painting so when we distress it after, the white would show through.

French Linen Chalk Paint™ was applied on top. Once dry it was sanded and distressed to show some white and some of the original wood.

We sealed the piece with Clear and Dark Chalk Paint™ Wax.

The seat was upholstered in a natural linen fabric that works perfectly.

This seat just unscrewed from the bench frame which makes it a perfect piece for our Basic Upholstery Workshop. Are you looking to learn this skill?

The finished piece is just gorgeous don't you agree?!

  

This Thrilling piece is now for sale in our store!

If you have any questions, come into the shop as we love to help.

Feel free to bring pictures of the project you have in mind too!

See you soon!
