It was a busy summer here in Southampton. We were blessed with wonderful weather which meant we had lots of people visiting our seaside town. (Or, maybe it was the presence of the Kardashians in Southampton. We’ll never know…) Since I haven’t shared much on the blog lately, I thought it would be nice to start with one of our summer “rescue, restore, redecorate” projects. I transformed a not so sweet bedroom suite.
This bedroom set belongs to a client who had it as a child. Made by Klinge furniture in upstate New York, the pieces are incredibly well made of solid maple. Unfortunately, the color of the stain was terrible! Our client has a space for them though and had enough vision to know they would be fantastic if painted. So, below is the color scheme.
I used the Amy Howard at Home One Step Paint. I had to do a little tweaking of the color to get what the client wanted. So, I mixed the colors Linen and Mollie Yellow for the main color. The green accent is mostly Vintage Affliction with some acrylic Hooker Green mixed in. I used the light wax for 100% coverage then the dark wax to add patina. Of course, I love the Amy Howard at Home products for their eco-friendly composition, but they are dream to work with and the colors are great.
The pieces are headed to Palm Beach where I think they’ll fit right in. Sweeeet!
Have any pieces you would like to rescue? Have you rescued any pieces and given them a new life? Email me. I would love to see what you have done. Maybe I’ll share it here.
We also, have some workshops coming up if you’d like to learn how to use the whole range of Amy Howard at Home products. Click Here to see and/ or sign up for one for our workshops.
In my next post I’ll share with you some of the fun we had at our workshops this summer.
‘Til then, I hope you’ll be inspired.
