Before and Afters featuring Heirloom Traditions and Vintiques Chalk Type Paint Products

tvgba2PicMonkey Image
Hello! How are y’all? I’m a big time lover of before and after
pictures. I think they say so much for what could be, especially if
you have a hard time imagining what can be created. I know quite a few
people that abandon a project because they can’t make it through the
ugly phase and the struggle is real, folks. I’ve had my moments too.
Every time I tell my mom what I have planned for a piece she looks at
me like I’m crazy. LOL And most times I am wild, bold and rowdy in
my designs, but that’s me and that’s what I do. Sugar Skull? Yea.
Leopard? Yea. Decoupaged Magic Horses? Yep. Lots of stripes, bold
colors and harlequin. I’m working on a hutch now that looks like it
belongs in a carnival. A full alligator piece and a splatter piece are
coming soon. So for my mom and others like her, or for those of you who simply dig before and afters I thought I’d put all the ones I’ve done using Heirloom
post. I hope you enjoy!

Thrift Store Folding Chair Makeover with 1GEL.

Hello friends!! I’ve been busy recently cleaning out my garage. It’s been much more of a chore than I expected and the Arizona heat doesn’t help.  When I get in a “get rid of it” mood, nothing is safe. I pulled this chair out (that I bought at a thrift store) and put it in the back of my SUV to take to Deseret Industries aka D.I. I pulled up to D.I. with a load of stuff and took another look at it and ended up bringing it back home.

I came home, blew past the garage mess, grabbed my 1GEL and headed to my paper hoard where I picked out some different designs. Leopard, Floral, Stripes and Polka Dots, cause why not?

Thee Velvet Glove

I painted the frame of the chair with one of my go to colors, Mint Julep Chalk Type Paint by Vintiques and then sealed with Vintiques Oxidized Patina Spray Wax. I love the depth the Oxidized Patina adds! To apply the Spray Wax, I shake the bottle really well and pour some out in a bowl then apply it with a brush.

And then I attached the paper and sealed with 1GEL as shown in the video above.  That’s why they call it 1GEL, it’s a decoupage, sealer and transfer medium all in one. So easy and this chair is so much more fun than before! Click here for a video demonstration on how to use 1GEL.

I waited for the top coat of 1GEL to dry and distressed the paper with 150 and 220 grit sandpaper then resealed.

My Favorite Piece

I think out of all the pieces of furniture I’ve painted over the years this is my favorite. The colors, the shape of the piece, the artwork, the setting and most of all the message makes me smile when I look at it. I have a lot of hours in this one and I find myself super attached to it for some reason. We hauled it out to Gold Canyon and I got some pictures I’m really pleased with. It was a blank slate. All white. You can see in the before and after photo below.

After lots and lots of searching I purchased two prints I found to put in the ovals on the headboard and footboard. I looked and looked and found the “Be Kind To Others” on a site called Oopsy Daisy then searched the internet for hours (no exaggeration) until I found the one for the footboard “Magic Horses” on Etsy, which I fell in love with. It was then I discovered they were by the same artist!  The extremely talented Katie Daisy. She is absolutely amazing!

I painted it with variety of colors. Bright, happy colors. I used Begonia, Mandarin, Synergy, Sundance, Daredevil and A La Mode Chalk Type Paints by Heirloom Traditions. I used 1GEL to attach and seal the prints. I used Aurora Staining Gel in Snow White to seal the paint. Squeal! LOVE that stuff!!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I’ve enjoyed working on it. It’s a twin size and is for sale in my Etsy Shop.

Calamity Jane Collection ~ Distressed Pink Bedroom Set

Calamity Jane Bedroom Set ~ Distressed Pink Sleigh Bed Twin Size Head-board and Foot-board, Tallboy Chest of 5 Drawers and a 2 Drawer Nightstand. All pieces have been painted in Pink then Grunged-Up and Antiqued with a Homespun Deep Whiskey Hue Glaze and Distressed just like American Frontierswoman Calamity Jane. Heavy Glass Knobs and Antique Glazed Gold Drawer Pulls. Headboard is striped in pink and off-white and embellished with  Shabby Chic Cabbage Roses.  Bottom drawer of Tallboy is covered in an artistic shabby rose print.

“I figure if a girl wants to be a legend she should just go ahead and be one.” -Calamity Jane

Calamity Jane worked as a cook, a nurse, a miner and an ox-team driver, all the while acquiring impressive riding and shooting skills. In her 1896 autobiography she says, “I was at all times with the men when there was excitement and adventures to be had. By the time we reached Virginia City, I was considered a remarkable good shot and a fearless rider for a girl of my age.” Her rough-riding, gun-slinging reputation is probably the reason she acquired the nickname Calamity Jane. One popular belief is that men were said to be “courting calamity” if they offended her.
