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

Our Paint Finds Of The Day!

Our Paint Finds Of The Day!

Here is our PAINT FIND OF THE DAY! We just purchased all of this paint for $10.00! Right now at Lowe’s, they are running a SPECIAL on their paint! WHOO HOO! This week only, their Sherwin WIlliams’ paint samples are BOGO (BUY ONE GET ONE FREE)! And as you can see in the top picture above, there is A LOT OF PAINT in their sample size! This is actually the largest sized paint samples that we have ever come across in ANY paint brand! (AND ALL THE PAINTERS SAID AMEN!) And they are only $4.98 each! SO, we have enough paint for several small projects, or 2 medium sized projects for under $5.00! You can’t beat that friends! And for all of you who would like to know the the names of the colors that we purchased, they are “Sugar Snap Pea” and “Red Tanager.” I think that they will be going on our boys’ school desks for this upcoming school year. Now we just need to find a pretty pink and lovely lavender for our girls, and we will be set! 

And as for the paint color in the large can pictured on the bottom, it was a MISTINT! We ABSOLUTELY LOVE mistints! We purchase and use them ALL OF THE TIME. At our local Lowe’s, they mark down mistints to $5.00 per gallon (Typically). We have found some of the most AMAZING COLORS on that rack. And since they are so cheap, you can take a little risk by purchasing colors that you would not typically purchase at regular price. And guess what….If you don’t like it, you are only out $5 bucks! But as for the color that we purchased today…. I believe God had it there ESPECIALLY FOR US, just awaiting our arrival! Why, you ask!?!? Because it is called Cream In My Coffee!” YEP, IT WAS A SIGN FROM ABOVE! 😉

 

One Of Our Recent Refinishes: “Brittany’s Teal Dining Set”

One Of Our Recent Refinishes: “Brittany’s Teal Dining Set”

Hi Friends! We are SO EXCITED because we just received some pictures of a dining set that we refinished a while back for a client! We refinished the pieces of this set in sections. We started with the chairs, and when we had them completed, our client came to pick them up and then dropped off the table and bench. So, we never had the opportunity to see the finished set together. That is…

UNTIL NOW! Continue reading

DIY Hanging Jewelry Organizer

DIY Hanging Jewelry Organizer

Happy Friday, Friends! We are back with another great DIY project for y’all! And as always, it is very cost effective and time friendly. Depending upon paint drying times, it should not take more than a few hours to make. We were able to pull together our material list from scrap lumber pieces, paint, and wire left over from previous projects. But you could easily find all of these materials at your local hardware store without breaking the bank.

This design came out of my own desperate need of somewhere to organize and store my hanging earrings and necklaces. I had a very small jewelry box that I would typically cram all of my jewelry into. But after many years, it became obvious that this was no longer a working option. Every time I would go to pull out a particular piece of jewelry, I would get a crazy, tangled ball of jewelry that looked like this….Continue reading

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

Our $20 End Tables

Our $20 End Tables

How we turned $20 Walmart tables into beautiful nightstands.

We don’t often have the time to refinish too much for ourselves, but our poor nightstands/end tables were begging for help. So, we took a little time at the beginning of January to give them a little makeover….
