New Venture Is Under Way

Hey there, long time no bloggy! Well I’ve been just a little busy as usual! I can’t sit still. I do think, wait, I do know I have a problem!

So without much further ado I present to you Something Borrowed Something Vintage Party Rentals! I have decided to go full time (or as much full time as a mom to 3 busy kids can go) into the wild and crazy world of weddings!

I no longer am selling in the fabulous Orange Circle! Boo hoo!!! Only because I can’t possibly do both businesses and stay sane. Its all good though, I’m ready for a change.

Bring it on!

a sneaky peeky into my vintage warehouse….

Swedish Paint Finish, part 3

Here is the last installment of video on how to achieve a Swedish Paint Finish. Here we will be adding the last ingredient, wax. I use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint dark wax, you can probably use any dark wax you have.

So far I’ve given my coffee table a coat of milky white paint. Now that it’s dry I’m ready for stain. I used Minwax Grey stain. Here is the video on how to achieve a Swedish Paint Finish part 2, stain.

 

Swedish Paint Finish

Here is the coffee table I refinished using my own version of a Swedish Paint Finish Technique. I’ve been scouring the blogosphere looking for a Swedish Paint Finish How-to with not much luck. So I racked the brain of my friend who does custom wood work for a living and he gave me his advice on how to achieve such a look.

So here is my first video tutorial. Today I will give you part 1 and Friday Part 2.

What paint finish would you like to see a tutorial on?

Cheers! xo
