It is almost the end of April and you know what that means, don’t ya? It’s time for the All Things Creative Party! I always look forward to this monthly roundup because I love seeing all the incredible projects of the members of my team.
These talented ladies include: Domestically Speaking, A Little Claireification, Debbiedoo’s, The DIY Village, Creative Cain Cabin, The Happier Homemaker, Redhead Can Decorate, On Sutton Place, me, and Tried & True.
This month we are doing things a little bit differently. Each of us received some paint supplies from Reclaim, and we’ll each show our projects that we completed on our individual blogs. So be sure to click the links above to see everyone’s projects.
Are you familiar with Reclaim paint? If not, let me introduce you. It is a line of refinishing and decorative paints that bond to almost every surface without any stripping, sanding, or priming required. It is specifically engineered to help you transform and customize any surface in your home or outdoors. That includes cabinets, counter tops, backsplashes, outdoor furniture, and just about anything. It works on wood, metal, plastic, glass, tile, linoleum, masonry, laminate, and even previously varnished surfaces.
Here’s how I transformed a 30 year old piece of furniture into a French Country night stand.
To ensure a good bond, I cleaned the piece with white vinegar to remove any wax and also scrubbed it with a degreaser. After it dried, I applied two coats of paint, letting each coat dry thoroughly overnight. Since Reclaim paint is slightly textured, you apply it a little differently. I used a brush to stipple it into the crevices and then rolled the paint onto the rest of the surfaces with a small roller. After the paint had dried, there were absolutely no brush marks which is the great thing about this paint.
And here it is! I took the piece outside and used my storage building as a white background so that you could better see what the Versailles color really looks like. It matches the beautiful blues in this painting that I propped on top.
But she’s already spoken for. She’s going in my sister-in-law’s guest bedroom in the new French Country home that she and Leo’s brother Woody are building here at the Crossroads! Oui! Oui! C’est magnifique!
