Meet Aimee – Candlelight Antique Side Table

Meet Aimee - Candlelight Yellow Side Table by Vintage Storehouse & Co.

This table was so cute I just couldn’t pass it up. I had been looking for a small Duncan Phyfe Table for a long time. When I found Aimee, she was pretty beat up. The top had a leather inlay that was beyond repair. I decided to remove the leather and just paint the wood underneath. I went back and forth on whether or not I wanted to put some wallpaper there – which I still think would be cute, but ultimately simplicity won.  [Read more…]

Meet Jolie – Candlelight & White Cashmere Headboard

Candlelight & White Cashmere Headboard before & after | Vintage Storehouse & Co.

Todays project was a requested piece by a friend of mine. She’s had this black headboard for years and was really ready for something more bright and fun. There is something I just really love about bright yellow headboards. They can make any room just come alive. So I was really excited when she wanted to paint this piece in VS Chalk Based Paint in Candlelight.  [Read more…]

Meet Wendy – Cotton and French Cobblestone Cedar Chest

Meet Wendy - Cotton and French Cobblestone Restored Cedar Chest

I love the color Cotton from our new line of Chalk Based Paint coming June 2015. It’s a beautiful grayish white that looks beautiful on pretty much everything (at least in my opinion – I’m not biased at all though). It reminds me of old painted brick walls in Europe. So when one of my friends asked if we could restore a beautiful cedar chest for her mom in this color for mothers day, I was really excited to get started!

How to Apply Antiquing Powder using Wax {Tutorial}

How to Apply Antiquing Powders using Wax by Vintage Storehouse & Co.

Last week I did a tutorial on how to apply Antiquing Powder using Wax and Mineral Spirits. That technique gives you ultimate control of how heavy your apply the product and is ideal for dark Antiquing Powders done over Light Paint or Natural Wood. Today, I wanted to show you how you can apply the powder with out Mineral Spirits by removing the excess powder with additional wax. This is more ideal for light colors of Antiquing Powder where the look is more subtle or you want a more dramatic effect with darker colors.

{Meet Elizabeth} Cotton & Roasted Chestnut Restored Dresser

I’m so excited to introduce you to Elizabeth. She’s a real beauty. I actually love her so much, that I decided to keep her! This dresser actually was my very first attempt at leaving just the drawers natural wood (although I did put a stencil over them) and I must say, I like it very much. When I was originally deciding how to restore this dresser, I was extremely frustrated with the fact that the top was just too far beyond repair. The veneer was falling apart and it was too thin to sand down anyways. So I was really unsure if I would like the natural wood drawers without a natural wood top to balance it out!

{Meet Nora} Sea Salt & Snowflake Vanity

Meet Nora - Vintage Storehouse Chalk Based Paint in the color Sea Salt, plus VS Metallic Powder in the color Snowflake

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.

Unique Antique Side Table

#Antique Side Table Before Transformation at Vintage Storehouse & Co #PaintedFurniture #BeforeandAfter

When I picked up this 1920’s Antique Dresser Set I showed you all last week, I also spotted this cute little side table among all the treasures in the store. I originally was torn on whether or not I would take it. I didn’t really have any ideas for it – but I ended up throwing it in with the other set and deciding that I would figure out what I wanted to do with it later.  [Read more…]
