A look at the Owen workshop from our carport…
In honor of the several inches of white snow here in Clarksville I wanted to share the….
“ distressing white furniture “ projects from our paint workshop on Saturday.
Shane and Lexi brought in their bar table and stools for the paint workshop.
the table top and legs
The finish on the furniture was really slick so we sanded just a little before starting the paint process.
To lighten up the set Shane and Lexi chose Reclaim paint in off-white.
Such a cute couple…..newlyweds.
They distressed the furniture by hand.
I have to say that I love the distressing on the stools.
The area around the screws looks really nice as opposed to just ugly screw holes.
They distressed the table top heavily too.
We don’t just paint in our workshops.
We also demonstrate stenciling and metal leaf techniques.
The metal leaf is always fun.
Lexi was impressed with the metal leaf process.
It’s an easy update for brass or other outdated looks.
Well, that’s it for the workshop.
What do you think of distressed furniture?
You guys know I love it but I also know it’s not to everyone’s taste.
And that’s perfectly ok.
Have a great day,
