Kitchen Cabinet Makeover with Artisan Powder + Clear Wax

  We have been doing more work at the Selma cottage in Temecula! (And we promise to show the entire house done soon) This is the kitchen, where we added stenciling to the walls using Charcoal chalk based paint and our Dainty Fleur stencil. The stenciling looks pretty cool over the concrete style walls...    The cabinets were purchased at a large hardware store chain and they were in need of a makeover to go with this uniquely styled kitchen.

  Fast forward-all cabinets were installed along with concrete countertops and appliances. We chose a dusty blue chalk style paint to paint over the bland white cabinets. We added two coats all together and let them dry for a few days before putting the doors and drawers back in place.

  Then our home decor guru, Denny Dupra Rufner, mixed Frank Garcia's Artisan Powder, Parthenay with clear wax. (the wax is firm-not the liquid kind). This allowed us to create our own custom wax to age and antique our cabinets.

  The wax was applied with a large wax brush, then wiped off with a clean rag. You can repeat this step until you achieve the desired color. These cabinets look so different! Now they have a high end look and match the style of the rustic kitchen.

  Here is the kitchen island we built using old cabinets from the original kitchen. (It pays to save them). You can see it's not quite finished but the legs and cabinet fronts match the kitchen cabinets perfectly, creating a nice cohesive look. Originally, we were going to paint the legs, but did the wax instead and they look perfect...

  The Artisan powders currently come in 9 different colors from earthy to bold and bright hues. We hope you enjoyed this post and like we said before, we plan to showcase the entire cottage once everything is finished! Have a great weekend everyone.

Brandy Kollenborn from Brushed by Brandy has shared a bit of inspiration for us today, using the Market transfer along with Dixie Belle paints.....

 This new transfer measures 10 3/4 in tall and 53 in. long. It comes in two pieces, making the application easier, so you don't have to commit all in one piece...cool-right?

 Brandy repurposed two old picket fence posts to create her sign. She sanded them a bit, added the transfer and then applied Dixie Belle's clear coat to seal it.

 This beauty will be going in her new home. She also said it could act as part of a farmhouse style table or bench. Yes- great ideas!  And this table you see under the sign-that's another masterpiece of hers too.

Chippy Laundry Sign with Rehab to Fab

 Stephanie from Rehab to Fab has another amazing project to share with our readers, using the new [re]design transfer, stencil (being released in May) and fun mediums from The Plaster Paint company and more...She transformed an old table leaf into a beautiful sign for her home.  A while back, Stephanie created a beautiful Farmhouse sign for us, featured here on the blog, so you may want to  check that out too.   You are going to love her techniques and ideas for this project today, so read on [re]designers!

You are going to love her techniques and ideas for this project today, so read on [re]designers!

 Stephanie always preps her surfaces for facelifts. She is a true believer in prepping, no matter what you are working on. Use a good cleaner and give your surfaces a good sanding to start. Once that was done, she added Finnabair's White Crackle Paste to the surface using a 2 inch silicone brush (also by Finnabair for Prima). The thicker the application, the bigger and better the cracks.

 Stephanie used the new Laundry [re]design transfer (633129). These transfers go on smoothly and easily with the help of a wooden stick (included in packaging) with only a bit of effort. They are sandable too. Use a very fine grit paper after making sure the entire transfer has adhered to your surface if you want to age it a bit.

 Apply the paint using a stencil brush and use a very small amount of paint over the stencil. The brush has to be almost dry. Dab off excess paint before applying. This will prevent seepage under the stencil and give you a nice clean edge to your design.

DIY Home Sign by Catarzyna

 Our amazing home decor team member, Catarzyna has a wonderful tutorial for us today on how to create a custom sign using IOd moulds, waxes and more. Her ideas are always so inspirational and we appreciate the tutorials she shares with our readers...  To make this decoration you will need a board or piece of chipboard,  IOD moulds , paper pulp, a piece of newspaper or paper (to make the outlet), glue, paint, wax   and something to decorate like: eggs, twigs, moss etc.

and something to decorate like: eggs, twigs, moss etc.

 You will start with a plain piece of wood, MDF or any scrap surface you can use for the base of the sign. With a pencil, draw out the letters for spacing and placement of the appliques. Use paper clay and the Fleurish mould (815318), Moulding 1 (815325) and Baroque 4 (814809). She also did some decoupage work on the "O" to build out the bottom. This little ledge will be used for a nest to hold twigs and eggs...Use bits of regular paper
