Our #THPMonthly Makeover March Edition!

Our #THPMonthly Makeover March Edition!

Monthly makeover

This week our March #tphmakeover winner pick up her finished piece and in her words she was "blown away with how her Grandma's buffet turned out!" We are so glad she is happy. Elisa wanted a bright finish and mentioned two colours... read on to see the transformation and the steps we took to create this look. Thank you Elisa for trusting us!

We started by giving the whole piece a good solid coat of Florence Chalk Paint

Once that was dry we dry brushed two colours letting each one dry between coats.  As Elisa loved bright colours, we choose Giverney and Aubusson Blue.

We gave the whole piece a gentle sand with a fine sanding block to soften the dry brush lines and followed with a coat of Clear Wax.

We love how the colours make her metallic hardware pop!

Win Your Hearts Desire Winner!

Win Your Hearts Desire - February 2017
February was the month of LOVE and we wanted to celebrate with our 'Win Your Heart's Desire'. So we gave you, our loyal customers and friends red hearts with every purchase in-store and the opportunity to label anything valued $100 and less with these personalized hearts. At the end of the month we had so many entries and the lucky red heart to be picked out as our winner was Claire.
 
We are thrilled that Claire's hearts desire was a Basic Upholstery Workshop which she will attend for free, congratulations Claire!
 
February may be the month of love but love is an emotion we feel all year round. This beautiful video shows the power of love and the need to show others around us love all year round, not just for the month of February! 

Our Second #TPHMakeover Winner!

We were delighted to choose Bev as the winner of our second #TPHMakeover winner. This beautiful old cabinet was just waiting for some TLC to reinvigorate it and change it into a standout piece in the home.

We decided on a coastal effect with a dusty style blue/green colour. We were so excited to see how the finished article would look and it did not disappoint! You can see how the bright colours really transform this from a dreary looking side piece to an energetic, attention grabbing cabinet!
