Todays post is going to be all about Hemp Seed Oil. We introduced our own line of Hemp Seed Oil with our new line of Metallic Powders because the two products work well together, and we wanted to offer an alternative to wax. We’ve already covered how you can use Hemp Seed Oil with the powders to get a very subtle metallic g, but today I wanted to show you how you can use Hemp Seed Oil on it’s own to revive old, tired and dry wood back to it’s original glory!

Yesterday I sd a tutorial on how to create a herringbone pattern using Vintage Storehouse Metallic Powders and Wax. It was a super fun project to work on and I’m excited to show you the finished piece! Without further ado, al me to introduce you to Jackson. He’s a bit of a ladies man ;).
I’ve been having a lot of fun lately experimenting with the new Vintage Storehouse Metallic Powder line. There are so many different ways to use the product, I can’t get enough of it. This week I wanted to s with you the last project I did using the color “Skyscraper“. This is the silver in the line and it’s super bright and really stands out on almost any color! In addition to using the powders in a new way with wax, I also wanted to try to use the powders with a stencil. So I got this cute herringbone stencil from Royal Design Studios and decided to put it on the sides of this bad boy…
A few months ago I restored a gorgeous antique dresser and night stand, and in the process I did a written tutorial on how to fix a missing piece on your furniture. This is so common among old pieces where an appliqué is missing or a carving has fallen off over time. But more often than not, you’ll find the exact appliqué that was supposed to be on one side of the project, in tact on the other side. And I have a really simple and easy way of fixing that issue using resin casting.
I loved working on this vanity! I usually love working on any vanity or buffet. I think those are my favorite pieces of furniture to find – but they’re pretty rare where I live. This piece had gorgeous lines and I just fell in love with it when I saw first saw it. I went back and forth on how I wanted to go about breathing some new life into this piece for a while. It sat in my garage while I worked on some other projects and contemplated what would look the best.
Today is the official release date of our Metallic Powder line, so I wanted to s with you all a tutorial on how to apply the Metallic Powder. There are a thousand different ways you could go about applying VS Metallic Powder, but in this demonstration I wanted to show you how you could get a very subtle metallic effect. I’m using the lightest color of Metallic Powder: Snowflake, and a light color of paint (Sea Salt from our new line of paint coming June 2015). This creates a gorgeous halo effect that makes the piece look like it’s ging in the light! I love it!
I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since I’ve last posted! I’ve been super busy with a new product line that is being released TOMORROW! It’s a new line of Mica Powders called Vintage Storehouse Metallic Powder. Plus we released our own line of Hemp Seed Oil to go along with it. I’ve spent the last month running around like a crazy person trying to film tutorials, experiment with the new product and make sure everything is ready to go for the launch! Let’s just say I’m really glad it’s finally here! [Read more…]
April Fools Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. I’ve never been into making anyone eat anything gross, or playing pranks that take more than 5 minutes to clean up. I just like doing the simple pranks that get someones blood boiling for a few seconds before they realize that its a prank! The last few years that I’ve been married, April Fools has just slipped by, and I haven’t had a chance to play any pranks on my husband. But this year, I’ve been extremely excited to play a few of my favorite April Fools Day pranks on his unsuspecting mind! 🙂
It’s Day 31 of our 31 Days of Knitting Series! Can you believe it’s the last day in the series? It was a TON of work to come up with 31 videos, but I think it was really fun, and we will definitely be doing another series later this year. So, if you have a stitch that you’ve been dying to learn how to do on the loom, but just can’t figure it out yourself, leave a comment be with the name of the stitch and we will try to squeeze it in our next series! Oh, and todays stitch is called the Smocking Stitch.
Today is Day 30 of our 31 Days of Knitting Challenge. One day left! Today’s stitch is called the Interlocking Cross Stitch. I’m currently working on a blanket that uses this same stitch and I love the way it looks in a long panel. [Read more…]
