Create a Thanksgiving Mantle Display

30 Oct

Ready for some inspiration? Check out this beautiful fall mantle scape that I came across at Rustique Restoration (www.rustiquerestoration.blogspot.com)

Let’s talk about some of the painting techniques you might need to create this look.
First, these shabby chic candlesticks. What if you have some plain white candlesticks and want to add an antique look?

To antique you can use Goopy Paint. It comes in three colors: Black, British Red, and Picture Frame Cream.

The above photo shows a piece painted with a Goopy British Red base coat, Antique Yellow On Top.

First, you add a base coat of one, or all three of those colors to the item you are antiquing. Goopy Paint is thick enough that the colors won’t run together, so you can add one, both, or all three in one step.

Second, you let the Goopy Paint dry.

Third, add a top coat of Old Village Paint (cream, black, whatever strikes your fancy), covering the entire piece, including the spots you painted with Goopy Paint.

Finally, when you sand the piece, the spots where Goopy Paint was standing up, and you’ll see that color underneath. Suddenly, it looks like you have an antique piece that had many different paint colors used on it over time, (as many as four different colors) and you only painted two layers!

I also wanted to remind you that if you need Black Board paint, to help create something like this cool framed chalkboard shown in these photos…

Sunflower Sunshine in a Paint Can

Do you love the colors of Italy?

If the beauty of Tuscany and Provence are well known to you, or if you’ve just discovered how amazing these areas of the world are–know that you can bring them into your home with a series of Old Village Paints, based on the colors of these regions.

Can you see the same colors in these paint options as the photos above?  From rocking chairs and window boxes to indoor shelves, organizing crates or accent walls, I can think of lots of ways I’d love to use these at home.  These are latex, water based paints, suitable for indoor or outdoor use.  If you choose any of these, or have already used one to create your own little splash of Provence/Tuscany in your home, please share with us! We’d love to see it. (We’re on Facebook, and it’s a bit easier to post photos there).

Roger S. Wright Furniture in Pennsylvania posted these photos of some custom kitchen cabinets they designed–painted with Old Village Paint sunflower yellow.

Hall Bench/Jelly Cupboard Made From Reclaimed Barnwood

19 Jun

Keith Beaver of Pennsylvania  created this beautiful entry piece using reclaimed barn wood!  To create the paint effect you see here he started with New England Red, and then added a layer of Black.

Rub away the top layer of paint very slowly using a high grit sandpaper to help the red color show through. Choose areas of the piece that would normally receive a lot of wear from use– like knobs and edges.

oldvillagejune152017oldvillagejune152017a

Beautiful job! What amazes me is how authentically aged the piece can look because of the color layering and sanding technique.  In the image below you can see just the solid “British Red” color on the far right column, forth one down.
