Reclaimed Charm

Scroll to Info & Navigation

Earlier this week I was able to visit my Parents & work on Mom’s buffet. Dad & I sanded the top and I began to do what I love, reclaim the beauty this thing once had! I stained the top & painted the base in Aubusson Blue & Old White Chalk Paint. Topping it all off with clear & small amounts of dark wax. I am pleased with the end result but more importantly my parents like it too!

Took a few pieces down in this color by Annie Sloan called “graphite”. Two tables one with a lazy Suzan top and a dresser! I did it, woohoo!!

It has been a busy week. I actually asked for help and learned a few new tricks this week so I will be able to take some pieces down that have been giving me grief! I love finished projects, don’t you? Here is a lovely table that I just took down to Paint in My Hair.

Come On Down

I invite you to come on down to the shop and see some new items I have stocked in my shop. Just a reminder for you college-bound people: you can find some GREAT things to populate your dorm room or rental. Why not add a touch of Reclaimed Charm to your dwelling! Oh yeah…

One Week In…Woot!

Well, it has been just a little over one week since Paint in my Hair opened, and Reclaimed Charm has done pretty well. Thank you to all who have gotten in to see the shop! I have sold enough things that my space is in need of more inventory to make it full again. Now if only I could have more hours in the day to get all I want done! Had a lot of positive comments on my things, including these two side tables with chalkboards.

I’m looking forward to getting some fresh inventory in the store and have a few pieces I would love to put in my own home, but I will be kind and give you a chance to enjoy them for your home instead.

Grand Opening!

Come visit my space at Paint In My Hair, located at 3036 North Monroe. The store’s grand opening is tomorrow, August 9th, and normal days open are Tuesday through Saturday. It was a lot of work to get it up and going, but I think it turned out pretty good. Go enjoy the shop tomorrow: there are door prizes (DeWalt drill set and $100 gift certificate) for those who come in!
