Who has watched the TV show..The Amazing Race?  Meet Brent and Josh, winners of The Amazing Race 2012. "This is the best Goat's Milk Soap" said Martha Stewart after trying their soap. See their video by clicking on the link below.
Off we went to visit  the Beekman 1802 store in Sharon Springs, upstate New York. It was a fabulous sunny day, and on the way to Sharon Springs, we passed by many old barns with huge letters "Antiques." many stores, so little time.  When we arrived at the Beekman store, it did not disappoint. Tall ceilings, a neutral backdrop of dark greys, creams and black, a mix of modern, vintage and upcountry.

And best of all, we bought Beekman 1802 product back with us! Come into The Camellia to see fabulous Goat-milk soaps, and their line called Fresh Air, found in upscale NYC hotels. Indulge yourself today, or pick one up for a fab Gift for a friend.

Cottage Paint projects

 Cottage Paint is so easy to sanding or stripping, just paint. Low vocs. and water-based, and it is available in many colours. This colour is Dragonfruit. Today we are going to share some of our recent Cottage Paint redos.

 Beautiful colours for the Fall season.. from left : Canyon,  Martini Olive and Golden Harvest.

 One of our store props that desperately needs Cottage Paint. This is a very old piece that came (we think) from Holland many years ago when our family moved to Canada. It is in rough shape , some of the wood veneer is lifting. The top is stained badly .

 After a good dusting and wipe-down with TSP, I started painting with Antique White, 2 coats.

 Then a wipe-back with a damp rag to do a light distress. You can see where the wood veneer is lifting. Final finish with 2 coats of flat acrylic varnish.

 A nightstand that has seen better days, picked up from the thrift store.

 First coat of Antique White, this piece was done with one 8oz. jar. of Cottage Paint. Finished with a jar of flat acrylic wax.

 We sell these stencils at The Camellia, along with Cottage Paint, brushes, and glazes and varnishes and waxes. 

The finished piece, what a transformation!

Here is a piece that was sent in by a client...formerly done in hunter green, transformed with Cottage Paint - colour Waterdrop. This piece happily resides at her Camp..her next project is repainting the kitchen table to match this piece. This is awesome, you can have a mad mix of furniture that can all be painted to co-ordinate with each other.

Visit The Camellia for Cottage Paint...and much more. 30, Hacquoil Rd. Slate River, just outside Thunder Bay, p-807-475-3551. We are open Wed. through Sunday. This Saturday 11-5, but tomorrow, Sunday we will be closed. Visit and click on the Cotage Paint link at the top of the website.
