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!
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…]
Remember this cute little side table/ cabinet I said with you last week? I was debating on what color to paint him because I wanted to do something inspired by fall, but I have a difficult time with the color orange and I tend to be drawn towards white and grey. Well I think I found a solution that worked out beautifully! [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.

I am just so excited to show you the before and after of this 1920’s Antique Dresser and Night Stand Set. Last week I sd with you a little bit of it’s history (or what I could find of it) and a tutorial on how I created the marbled paint look. I’m so excited to be able to bring it back to life so it can have another 100 years of history to tell. [Read more…]
