Before and After in the Studio…

headboard1

 

Now that the kitchen makeover is done, and the master bathroom is complete (reveal coming soon!) I’ve been back in my studio doing some custom work!  I just completed a lovely headboard using Old Ochre and Napoleonic Blue!  I am LOVING Napoleonic Blue and was so excited my client wanted it on her headboard!

The before was not bad at all…it just did not match her decor and she was ready for a change.

I sketched out a idea and got to work…

I was thrilled when the only guidance she gave me was color and let me do what I felt the headboard needed!

I painted it all in Old Ochre, highlighted it with Napoleonic Blue, finished it all with Clear Wax and then added some Dark Wax.

Shades of Blue are Hot for Spring!

 I’m swooning over the latest issue of Pottery Barn!

They have done a fabulous job of showcases all the HOT shades of Indigo Blue for the upcoming season! The blues are perfectly paired with my favorite neutrals as well!

I love, love, love this bed….but sadly I fear my darling Shih Poo would lift his leg on it!

Am I the only one that has an annoying, but so sweet and cute, male dog that must do this?!? Why?!?

I’m feeling like breaking in to some Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® and some French Linen Chalk Paint® very soon!

I’ll be sure to share with you my rendition of Indigo Blues and Neutral Linens on some furniture very soon!

31 Days of ASCP, Day 17….Pumpkins!

We are huge Auburn University Football fans!
So, when I popped the lid on Napoleonic Blue I knew it had to paired up with some orange in honor of the blue and orange Auburn Tigers!

I painted one coat of Napoleonic Blue on my pumpkin.  In no time it was dry…love that!  I then took some 150 grit sandpaper and rubbed it up and down the pumpkin, revealing pops of orange!  I wiped the dust off and then coated it with clear wax.  In less than 30 minutes the pumpkin was done!

My Taylor sign was also a super quick project.  
Trish had picked up a stack of these chippy boards recently when she was on a “pickin” trip.  I grabbed one up and stenciled on my name and house number with black craft paint.  When that dried I waxed the entire board with AS clear wax.  The board looks as good as it did the first day I put it out and it has been poured rain on for days on end!  Thanks to AS wax!
