Bluestone House™ Chalky Patina on a Brick Wall!!

Our Chalky Patina can be used on just about anything! 
With that being said lets take a look at this next project from one of our Patina's! 

This brick wall was all over this small kitchen. When our Patina was renovating this project she knew this one wall needed to stay, and become a "feature wall".
However it needed Bluestone House™ love to rescue it.


Check out this total transformation. 

The first step...

Choosing the right colours!
the entire wall was painted in one of our most loveliest colours, "Driftwood" !!




let the transformation begin!!!


look at the change already! 


almost done with the lovely Driftwood...



Using our beautiful round brushes allows for you to get into the corners, grooves and indentations with ease.











New floors
for a New brick
wall !
Second step...


Now for the second step, she added Bluestone's signature colour "Bluestone".
Each individual brick had a random stroke of "Bluestone" added to add a little more colour and depth.



Take a look at the beautiful detail!


What a beauty!

Taking a look at it, she knew something else was needed. It was missing the finishing touches so along came a great and final step. 


Third and final step...

"French Country", was the missing piece!
just like the colour "Bluestone", "French Country" was added, randomly to each individual brick. This not only adds depth and character, but also lightens it up.
Process was the same using our fabulous round brush!
Topcoat was not required, as the chalky finish added a realistic brick look & feel.




look at the detail!



get caught in action!


 






And done! 

Fantastic job !!!
Totally thrilled with the outcome !!!

A Lovely Day in Merrickville

Workshop at Windsor's Courtyard..

When Diane, owner of  Windsor's Courtyard, asked me to come out and teach a workshop, I said sure ! Merrickville Ontario is absolutely adorable !  It is a good 5 hour drive from me so I had to stay over night. Diane recommended, "1840 Guest House B&B" and it did not disappoint !
The owner Mike was very gracious and his B&B was beautiful & spotless !I would totally recommend it to anyone headed that way !

A Chalk Paint Spray Gun ? No Way ...

Yes Way !!!!

Wagner has developed a Chalk Paint sprayer !!!
And guess what ...
 
I have some to give away !!! 
Stay Tuned
  • Sprays chalk-type, milk and other decorative paints (thinning may be required) as well as stains, sealers and lacquers
  • It's easy to use, just fill and paint.
  • Creates a smooth finish with no brush marks. Saves time versus hand painting
  • Features paint-saving controls like the pattern adjustment dial and material flow control
  • It's lightweight and easy to maneuver for small pieces and tight space spraying 
  • 6-foot air hose for additional maneuverability around painting projects
  • Small size for compact storage, but powerful enough to spray small-medium/large sized projects
How awesome is that !!! 

I will have them at the "Toronto National Home Show and Canada Blooms" this Friday March 10 - March 19.
Drop by my booth Bluestone House™ 
H247, see them in person & fill out a ballot !
