Using VS Antiquing Powder to white wash your painted projects isn’t much different than applying any other color of antiquing powder, but it does give a dramatic effect. You can use any of the lighter colors to white wash, but White Cashmere is the most common color.
I’m just so happy about our new line of Chalk Based Paint. I’ve gotten to work with the paint over the last few weeks and have really enjoyed working with it so far. Each month I will demonstrate a few ways you can work with a highlighted color for each month. This month I chose the color Candlelight. [Read more…]
I’m so excited! After months of picking our colors, testing out paint samples and working with paint distributors, we finally were able to create our own line of Chalk Based Paint. Basically we took the technology of our chalk based paint and put it into our favorite paint recipe to create 12 custom, hand picked colors just for you! [Read more…]
When we originally released Vintage Storehouse Antiquing Powder last year, I did a tutorial on how to apply Antiquing Powder with wax and mineral spirits. Since then, I’ve gotten much better at videography, so I decided it was time to re-do a few of my older videos, including this one. [Read more…]
Remember the post I did a few weeks ago about using a stencil to apply metallic powder to this gorgeous Nightingale Dresser? Well when I ordered that stencil from Royal Design Studio, they were having a sale where if you bought $$ of stencils you could get free shipping. I was already really close to the amount, so I decided to throw in another stencil to get the free shipping. I’m so happy that I did, because later on, when I was deciding how I wanted to restore this gorgeous dresser… [Read more…]
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!

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.
When I was at the craft store the other day I saw these bags of Pine Cones on sale and they smelled so amazing I couldn’t help myself. I ended up buying 2 bags without even knowing what to do with them. After thinking about it for a few days I remembered that I had some leftover fake snow & lace ribbon from another project lying around. So I decided to transform my regular pine cones into beautiful glittery, snow covered pinecone ornaments! [Read more…]
Have you ever fell in love with an old antique piece of furniture that you wanted to restore, just to find out that it had a missing chunk that you couldn’t fix? This has happened to me multiple times. Chairs that have had missing curved railings, desks with missing appliqués, and this nightstand where the bottom of the design in had been knocked off somehow.
