My secret weekend project revealed…

post by Village Antiques

These past few weekends, I have been busy working behind-the-scenes on an exciting new design project…

 

…but instead of working on my project behind closed doors, I decided to lift the curtain and do a live paint demo to show everyone my easy painting process from start to finish.

As you might imagine, the pressure is on when doing a live paint demo because people are eagerly anticipating the final results as they stand by in real-time. But even as the pressure mounts, it is always worth it to see their jaws gape at the final reveal!

 

These demos give people a real look at how our paints, brushes and sealers work together to help transform any room project in little time and minimal budget.

 

During the demo, we transformed a pair of old chairs, side tables, a glass Eiffel tower and a pair of brass ship bookends.

 

Are you ready to see the unbelievable “before & after’s”?

 

Here is how this pair of side tables/chests looked “pre-transformation”:

…and here’s how they looked POST-transformation:

Check out this old mirror before the very first brush stroke:

…and here it is after being transformed with my insanely simple 3-step system:

Here I decided to do something different and add a designer touch to this little glass Eiffel Tower (yes, it’s glass!):

Here’s the Eiffel Tower after I got my hands on it:

And if I didn’t push the envelope far enough with that glass Eiffel Tower, I took it a little further and transformed this pair of chairs:

And turned them into these stunners:
