Once again Amanda, lover of all things DIY, has tapped into another great product for us to use. The Artisan Enhancements line we now carry at Suite Pieces, is bringing furniture decoration to a new level. For all Chalk Paint® lovers who are confident with the basic techniques, Artisan Enhancements offers products that complement Chalk Paint, and add more layers of depth and character to your pieces. I am personally in LOVE with the foils. The rolls come in several metallic colors and can be used to enhance a carved surface or create a pattern on a flat surface.
Here is a side table I just finished and gave a pop of glam using the gold foil…so easy to use, so fun! Sign up for our next Beyond the Basics class to learn about foiling, plastering, crackling, and more.
This is one of my favorite pieces to date…a keeper!
As many of you know from stopping by at the flea to chit-chat, I have partnered with Amanda Peppard of Suite Pieces, and we will be opening a shop in Brooklyn this summer. Thanks to the support i receive from my family and the collaboration with this great new partner who shares my love of Vintage and DIY, this dream is finally coming true.
Amanda is the shop owner of Suite Pieces Huntington, a vintage furniture store that carries the amazing line of furniture paint, Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan. This is the paint I use on my projects, an amazing product that we can’t wait to share with you.
The Brooklyn location will be the home for our vintage furniture showroom, as well as a DIY boutique and workshop, where you can find supplies and take classes to give your pieces exciting make-overs.
We will be updating you soon on the address and opening date for Brooklyn. Check out suitepieces.com for the latest!
This has been on my To-Do list ever since we moved into our house 3 years ago, to paint our chipping front door and give it some love. After all, it’s cool as hell, with glass paneling and a built-in bell.
I originally thought of painting it green, and giving the house a pop of color…
I stepped back, checked out the progress and quickly aborted that plan, just can’t commit to a bright green door on a full-time basis. I would love it some days and hate it all others.
So moved on to plan B. The inside of the door is painted with Chalk Paint® in Graphite. I decided to keep it consistent and just add a pop of color with the numbers.
The original numbers were black, and had to be primed before applying the spray paint of the desired fluorescence. Since I love Chalk Paint® and all its capabilities, i decided to use it as the primer.
Next, one and one half coats of Chalk Paint® on the door, and voila! I now have a sassy, sexy, front door that I will love to come home to year-round.
