We are excited to share a few projects from this years Furniture Painting Contest featuring Chalk Paint® and Artisan Enhancements.
Winners this year are Masie Richards and Katrina Goodrich. Each were selected in a random drawing. We could never judge these projects and make a decision as to our favorite! They are all unique and beautiful. Thank you so very much for sharing your projects with Ooh La La & Friends.
The first submission from Krista turned out so cute on this dining room set!
After: Provence & Old White
These great projects came in from Robin…so pretty and very elegant!
She stripped the the top of the table since she wanted to lime or white wash it.The bottom and legs were painted with Napoleonic Blue and a gold on the details. A thinned out mix of Old White and Pure White were used on the outer edge of the top. A very small detailed stripe was added with the Napoleonic to separate the painted edge and the lime wash. Clear and dark wax were used on the legs and clear wax on the top. Upon finishing she finished by buffing it for extra shine!
After :Aubusson Blue & Clear and Dark Soft Wax
Julie chose to paint her entry table using Burgundy and Pure White Chalk Paint®. We love the stencil she used from Royal Design Studios-what a beautiful contrast between the two colors.
Brett completely changed the look of this dresser into a very chic entertainment center using a mix of 60% Graphite and 40% Old White and then using Clear Wax on the entire piece. This color pairs with the dark stain very well. We love how the diamond knobs tie into the metal mesh used on the doors!
Averee totally changed the look of this hutch from dated to fabulous. The hint of Antoinette adds to the vintage feel of the piece. Well done!
Brittney isn’t afraid of color and we love it! This is a great transformation of this piece and shows how the paint sets off the detail! This piece was completed with Antibes and Florence.
Darian updated this piece from dated light oak to this using Paris Gray and Pure White with Clear Wax and some light distressing. The knobs and plaq are painted using Graphite.
Jeanette fell in love with this table after base painting it Paris Gray and Antoinette. She then used a Royal Design Studio stencil and Pure White on top and clear waxed! This combination gave the piece a very feminine feel-the lucky girl that get’s this will be happy!
Macy did a lime wash by using diluted Chalk Paint® on raw wood and then hand painted the wire and stenciled the birds. She used both the clear and dark wax-the dark wax made the wood look richer! She also completed a frame using the Louis Blue, Clear Wax and then tinted Pure White Wax. Lightly distressing to the gold underneath and then adding a bit of silver Gilding added depth to the frame.
Sue gave a great update to darling maple furniture piece that was handed down to her and her husband by family members. The completed piece looks so clean and bright!
Brandi used Pure White, Coco and then French Linen followed by Clear Wax to get a “greige” look on her kitchen cabinet update. Impressive change!
Shayln updated her kitchen island and chairs. Look how much fun this update is!
Lisa transformed this wardrobe using Graphite Chalk Paint®. It now has a totally new look! We love how the handles pop and the details shows up so well.
The before of this piece submitted by Katrina was brown and didn’t match her house. Ooh La La….look at it now!
Elsie did this amazing bedroom furniture makeover. Look at the beauty in the detail of these pieces!
Julie’s before and after of a few projects-each one unique and amazing!
Old Violet and a custom mix of Old White and Pure White with a rag technique on the top. There’s a surprise of Emile inside the drawer finished with clear wax.
The vintage French Provincial Dresser needed the old decals removed before it was painted with Old White and Coco with Clear Wax.
The mirror is completed with Old White and Dark Wax.
Darling table Coco and Old White with Clear Wax.
And the wonderful update to the dresser is in Paris Grey, Pure White and Clear Wax.
Sharelle send it this furniture update! Love!
Britney totally changed up this dining room set using Antibes, Paris Grey with clear and dark wax. The stencil from Royal Design looks amazing!
Bisty totally changed the look of this natural wood nightstand by staining the top with a mahogany stain and sealing with the Artisan Enhancements Sealer and then painting the bottom Graphite with clear and dark wax. Love the new look!
Bitsy’s bench makeover is awesome as well. She painted the legs Coco, the top Pure White and then stenciled with Provence followed by clear wax.
Masie sent in the following projects:
This old dresser was painted with Henrietta and the handles and baskets with Graphite. The entire piece was then dark waxed!
This cream colored leather chair was painted with Coco and then dark waxed. What a great result!
Masie first painted these Florence and then decided Graphite would be best in the playroom. That’s the great thing about it-you can always paint over the paint to change it!
The crib was painted using Emperor’s Silk and Clear Wax. It totally changed the look–we love it!
Be sure to submit your photos! If you forgot to take a before, we still want to see your after! We will be giving away several $50 gift certificates to the lucky winners! (ONE ENTRY FOR EACH BEFORE AND EACH AFTER PHOTO)
