Liability Of The Week “How Many Guys Does It Take To Fix A Window Unit?”

Alrighty, Friends! Our “Liability Of The Week” winners go to these 3 KNUCKLEHEADS right here! I can just hear the one holding onto the other saying, “Don’t WORRY, Buddy! I’ve got you!” YIKES! Friends don’t let friends hang upside down (With their heads facing the pavement), out of a window while BARELY being held onto by another friend. Next time, USE A LADDER!

Our New Orleans Style Media Cabinet Is Complete!

Our New Orleans Style Media Cabinet Is Complete!

Okay, Friends! We have the Fangue family’s New Orleans Style Media Cabinet COMPLETED! And we could not be happier with our results. We are HEAD OVER HEELS in love with it! In order to achieve this GORGEOUS finish, we used 4 different paint colors, plus a dark glaze. We then fully sealed everything with a lovely satin finish!  This piece is sure to be a FABULOUS focal point in any room! ( We love it so much, that we are on the hunt to find something in our home to use this finishing technique on.)

It always amazes us what a little stain, paint, and glaze can do…Continue reading

What’s In Your Mug? Southern Pecan Coffee And A Huge Yawn

What’s In Your Mug? Southern Pecan Coffee And A Huge Yawn

Happy Wednesday, Friends! After a NOT SO GOOD night of sleep… this mug does not know how ACCURATE it truly is! LOL! Last night we were BURNING THE NIGHT AT BOTH ENDS. We decided to stay up much later that usual in order to COMPLETE the work that we had started yesterday (which we thankfully finished the building portion) and then we turned right around and woke up BRIGHT and EARLY this morning! We are hoping to have some things finished up today! YAY! We always enjoy getting to see our finished products. After all, they only begin as an IDEA. So, it is always a FUN JOURNEY getting them from point A to point B.

This morning, my mug is full of New Orleans Roast Coffee (Southern Pecan) and a Huge YAWN!

What’s in your mug?

“Tip Of The Week” How To Remove Permanent Marker From Everything

“Tip Of The Week” How To Remove Permanent Marker From Everything

Hi friends! Here’s a nice little “how-to” list for permanent marker removal. If any of you have been thinking of refinishing some of your pieces due to permanent marker damage, this list may save you some time and money!

We have not tried all of the solutions listed here, but can vouch for the rubbing alcohol method on wood. And if you do not have any rubbing alcohol on hand, hair spray works quite nicely! We have had to use this little trick first hand since we have 4 little ones.

New Color Inspiration…..GREY!

New Color Inspiration…..GREY!

We are currently working on a very large order for a client, and we LOVE the color that they chose! They brought us this gorgeous clock for the inspiration for their refinish. Now, it looks a little blue in the picture… but in person, it is a very elegant light grey. What we love most about using this shade of grey is that it has a calming effect and will not overpower the space that it is in. This is also a neutral color and can be paired with many other colors without clashing.

We chose to go with Sherwin Williams Ovation Latex Flat Paint. The color that we are using is called Krypton!

 

We are currently working on stripping, sanding, and cleaning all of their pieces, and cannot wait to start staining and painting everything! We will post our finish product as soon as we have everything completed! So…STAY TUNED!

The Mattingly’s Dining Set Refinish

The Mattingly’s Dining Set Refinish

Happy Wednesday, Friends! We wanted to share some pictures with all of you of our most recent refinish! We had the opportunity to refinish a beautiful table and chairs set this past week for a client. This set was 10 years old, had a few scratches and dings, and the chairs need to be tightened and repaired. But it still had A LOT of life left in it! It always amazes us how far a little paint can go! Right before your eyes, it can literally transform and breathe life into an old piece.Continue reading
