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.
