Beach Glass Projects – still!

Love these quick little projects that Beach Glass makes absolute standouts!

This little display stand is a collaboration between hubby and me  He added the pedestal and I finished it-perfect for a few cupcakes and more!

and it sits on a little tiny dresser or nightstand that I got a bit brave with – I usually stick with one color projects.

My favorite APC color to date and there are a bunch to choose from…

Another Gorgeous Beach Glass Dresser

We are so in love with this color and our customers like it too!  We see this color perhaps giving way to Peacock, also by American Paint Company.  Both are lovely intense colors and make a statement in any room!

Miss Evie would have painted this Peacock but she didn’t have any at home so Beach Glass it was!

Such a lovely range of colors in American Paint Company’s line of chalk and mineral paint!

I am enamored of APC’s Smoke Signal! I am enamored with (?) I LOVE it!

Here’s the second project I have done with it – I showed you the buffet/sideboard before.  This was a sad little piece with chains, huge eye hooks, terrible finish but I knew it could be cuter and it is with Smoke Signal!  So ugly I deliberately did not take a before picture…

It’s sunny today and this is the spot in the shop that is most glare-y for some reason-sorry.

APC’s Smoke SIgnal

On a separate note, sometimes you just have to change it up to make it more interesting.  I just deleted the pictures of what this looked like before but it had a nice dark finish on a beautiful oak cabinet which you can see on the top.  Decided to paint the base in Beach Glass and boy has the interest increased!

~SOLD~

Now how long will it take to sell, I wonder?

Chalk and Mineral Paint Sewing Machine Drawers

Picked up a stack of 6 of these filthy little things recently, gave them a good bath and then decided to paint them with chalk paint.  The dark one is ASCP in Graphite, the blue is American Paint Co.’s Beach Glass and the white is a homemade version of chalk paint (not nearly so nice but it was available!).  They turned out really pretty after a bit of wet distressing and waxing.  Sold VERY quickly too!
