Fabulous Furniture Makeovers from our Latest Shizzle Workshop

Fabulous Furniture Makeovers from our Latest Shizzle Workshop

I blinked and this week was gone!  Between hauling the kids back and forth to Vacation Bible School and Cathy out with a horrible Strep infection, the week just went poof.

I’ve had a lot of requests for how some of the finishes were created so without further adieu, here are the makeovers from last week’s Shizzle Style Furniture Paint Workshop.

Gail made our paint class part of her vacation.  She and her husband drove up to Michigan and spent some time near the Lakeshore in Holland before attending our class.  She brought in the most amazing ornate table that she refinished in one of my signature paint finishes.

Didn’t it turn out stunning?  You can learn how easy it is to create this look here.

She scores all sorts of things in the alleys on trash day including this unique side table.  She had already started painting it before I captured the before picture, but there was a lot of decorative painting on it when she started similar to what’s on the top.

She slapped on a coat of CeCe Caldwell’s Michigan Pine in a few minutes.

She then slapped on CeCe Caldwell’s Kentucky Mint in random places.  While she was doing this, we could see some of the original gold popping through so she worked that into the design by wet distressing  back through.June 15 cylindrical table painted at a shizzle style #painatedfurniture workshop byron center #cece caldwell's michigan pine layering

A little bit of Michigan Pine was dry brushed after it was wet distressed.

To break it up and tie in with the hardware, Mary painted the top with CeCe’s Virginia Chestnut. I love, love, love the brown with it.  I think it will look fabulous in her daughter’s tropical themed room!

Mary’s friend Sue brought in an old gossip bench from her entryway.  She is a bit of a perfectionist so the thought of slapping on a bunch of paint made her nervous when she first started messing with it.

Sue wanted just a touch of white to show through under the red so she did a thin coat of Dover White then painted her bench with American Paint Company’s Firework’s Red.  This is the most spectacular red!  I just love this color!  Did I mention I like it ~ a little?

She distressed it little by little to reveal bits and pieces of the white and wood underneath.  I think the color is perfect on this piece!

I don’t know what setting I had my camera on, but it looks pink in this picture

It’s not really pink ~ for some reason the color is off on this shot

 In person, Firework’s Red is the most rich, beautiful red ever!

This was another quick re-do during the workshop.  Mary slapped one quick coat of CeCe Caldwell’s Santa Fe Turquoise on her metal parlor chair to use as a planter.

Bonnie sells painted furniture at both the new and old Changing Thymes in Grandville, Michigan but she wanted to learn some new finishes to kick it up a notch.  She brought in a small round end table which she base coated in CeCe Caldwell’s Vermont Slate.  She then painted over that with a custom mix I made up for her of Omaha Ochre and Vintage White.

She wanted to do a similar finish to that which I painted on this dresser ~

Did I ever even post on this dresser yet?  Oh zazooz!  I’m losin’ it!

The last piece painted at the workshop is a rustic nightstand.  I actually thought it was a drawer when she first carried it in.  Bonnie used a simple coat of Vintage White, wet distressed back to the wood and in a just a few minutes, she had created this!June 15 side table painted in CeCe Caldwell's Vintage White at a Shizzle Style Furnitiure Paint Class Grand Rapids, MI

    Great projects! Wish I were closer. I am unable to find information on Gail’s table. The link seems to be missing. Can you help? Thanks. Jeanne
