How Many Times?

Let's look at how many times I can repaint things around here. These are few pieces I worked on this year. Just call me C R A Z Y. Mr. Savvy does all the time.

This farm house stool that I bought for $8 went from Old Violet, to Antibes Green with Arles all in ASCP, and then to Tricycle Red Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint.

The buffet in the dining room went from ASCP in Old Violet to Aubusson.

This armoire in the guest room went from a weathered finish I did last year to the new red using Primer Red chalk paint.

The t.v. cabinet in the sunroom changed four times people. That's right four. It went from a very bright yellow with red striped fabric on the doors to gray with the same doors. Then the fabric came off and I painted the door panels and then lastly Mr. Savvy added beadboard to the doors.

The concrete urns on the mantel were first aged with a wash of gray and then I painted them black.

The mantel went from original white to Chateau Gray, to Co Co, to Co Co with a white wash over it and all paints are Annie Sloan Chalk paints. Mr. Savvy never has noticed the last change.

The plate shelf that I was not going to paint ended up getting changed three times. First time it was painted with ASCP in French Linen. Second phase was a custom green with Aubusson added to the wall. What was I thinking? Third, we added beadboard to the back for a finished look and it was painted Chateau Gray ASCP.

The hutch in the bathroom that had been painted red before blogging was then changed three times. The last time the doors were removed and beadboard was added to the back and an extra shelf was added.
First pic colors: Old White and Chateau Gray, ASCP. 2nd pic: French Linen and St. Louis Blue, ASCP. 3rd pic: Luckett's Green and Shutter Gray, Miss Mustard Seed Milk paints.

I have a few pieces that I am planning on painting in 2013, but most have not been painted before.
I think I need to find an outlet for my madness creativity.

Happy painting and Happy New Year!

  6. So many great paint ideas! I especially love the mantel with the white wash over it - definitely need to try that one out. Looking around my house now trying to decide what I can paint :)

  7. That is too funny. As much as I paint, I don't re-do a re-do very often. I love the cabinet in the last picture as well - all three paint jobs.

  11. I love all your changes! Keep them coming! Plus, this post totally makes me feel better about making a big deal on my blog when I painted my dining room hutch white and then pretty much immediately repainted it black. My husband's expression was priceless when he got home and I told him to not go in the dining room since I was repainting the hutch...again.

    Happy New Year!

  12. Thank you for sharing your "madness"...luckily it's contagious. I have a small wicker plant stand (one plant sized) that I have been struggling with what color to paint it...Tricycle Red it is thanks to your beautiful stool...now just can't wait until the paint arrives.

  17. Your stool has a twin sitting in our basement which my husband had in his classroom at one time. I think I may try my hands on MMS's Tricycle Red chalk paint for my first paint of 2013.

  21. LOL- Just think what Mr.Savvy will call you when he figures out how long it has been since the last change on that mantle that he never noticed. You do have fun with your paint. Good for you- you inspire lots of people to paint that would never dare try it otherwise-xo Diana

  35. When it's all in one place like this it doesn't look crazy. It looks AH-MAZING. You have accomplished so much and inspired us all. Favorite thing is the plate shelf. Love it. I don't have a post yet for tonight. I'll try to get one up. If I don't make it just wanted to wish you a Happy New Year! p.s. My fabric from France arrived yesterday. I'm dying to get to work...

  36. Kim~ I wish I had your gift with a paint brush and your vision! Maybe I can ask Santa for that next year :) Love all your changes~ Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  37. :) Fun to see your changes! YOu need to find a shop somewhere to sell painted furniture!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love how daring you are, jumping in and painting and repainting with abandon! All of your projects come out so beautifully! I have really enjoyed reading all of your blog posts this last year and am looking forward to reading more in 2013! Happy New Year! Hugs, Leena

  39. Layering paint on furniture, and I mean in a decorative way, is truly one of your many talents! I particularly love the hutch in your bathroom! That is a stunning piece, no matter what color you paint it. Quick question, when you painted the little stool, from green to red, did you prime it with anything in between? Looks like milk paint. Simple and sweet!
    Happy new year,
    Barbara

  40. Is it my iPad, or is your header blurry? No, it's not a hang-over! :)

  41. Loved them all Kim! Happy New year to you my friend.

  42. This makes me feel so much better about myself! I have the same habit of painting and repainting until my husband is totally exasperated. It's nice to know I'm not the only one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Kim, it's creative madness, and few do it better than you! In fact, it was because of your buffet in the dining room that I bought a quart of ASCP in Aubusson! No, I'm not kidding. I still haven't figured out what I'm going to use it for, but if it looks half as good as your buffet, I'll be happy! Have a great new year!

  51. You're too funny! I thought I was the only one who did this ~ lol! But then again, I love layered colors so it usually works to my advantage. Great pieces!! Shelly

  52. That's so funny Kim. I am working on an angel I bought at GW for $3 and she started out brown, now darker brown, but I don't like it so I think she will be white next! LOL I can totally relate. Also, I want to tell you how much one of your photos on your home tour inspired me - the one with the Christmas sweater stocking. I sewed one yesterday (sweater from GW too) and will post about it. Thanks for all the inspirations!
