- One Dollar WonderI found a very badly stained leather chair at a local estate sale for $1.00. Yes...One dollar. I was so excited to try to paint it and make it a part of our "library" room. I am so super excited and proud of the transformation! My family was a bit skeptical...but were all amazed at the end result. I did clean it thoroughly (about 3 times, 4 in the really stained places), using all of the surface prep that was in the leather kit.January 10, 20231561

- Countertop Contest: First attempt @ countertopsA friend was going to replace their faux butcher block countertops. I told them I had seen people paint them with the AIO paint and asked if I could practice on their countertops since I had just painted their cabinets.. If they didn’t like it then they could replace them. I used the plastic bag method, this was before the faux paw came to be. After deglossing very well I used linen as the base coat. Then applied champagne, oil rubbed black, gunmetal, pearl and white wash antiquing gels and more Linen for depth. After three days I applied two coats of top coat. Water resistant wasn’t available yet. Needless to say…they loved it!September 13, 20221448
- Oak Banister transformationUsed tobacco gel stain and cashmere to transform this staircase from drab to fab!
Prepped with TSP and then deglosser with a scrubby sponge. Next, replaced any missing screw “buttons” and glued them into place. Filled in any gaps with caulk and then starting taping. Lots and lots of taping.
Stained 28’ of handrails and five posts first. Used a chip brush and did not wipe back. Let dry about 24 hours between coats. Lightly sanded, then a very light third coat. The finish is gorgeous. A week later, started the balusters (72 of them!) with the cashmere. First coat with round brush, then coats 2 and 3 with round sponge applicator. Used a bit less than 16oz can of gel stain and almost 2 quarts of paint. Approx 40 hours of hands on work, but we’ll worth the effort. Overall cost was about $130.August 9, 20222042

- Front Door and stenciled rugPart of our entry makeover was adding a punch of color with my version of coral. Beautiful pink/red courtesy of a Monarchy and Naples mix.
My blah porch needed something special too. I created a “rug” by using stencils. #Almond #London and my coral color mix used on the door. Background color is a concrete paint from HDJuly 23, 202239264
