How To Make Furniture Look Really Old

  Chippy Paint, looks original, but the white was added by me. Thank you Milk Paint for doing what you do. I’m totally obsessed with my new bathroom cabinet!  We picked this up in Round Top @marburgerfarm. It was the coolest chippy blue. But the color didn’t look right next to my buffet, and it was really stained. I was a little nervous to paint over the chippy goodness.

Extreme Makeover Chippy French Trumeau Mirror

We finished this fun mirror for the dining room.  Eventually it will have mirror in the bottom, it’s on order.

Trash To Treasure Paint Blending Antique Doors

So you might be surprised, but this week I did some paint blending with bright bold colors. I am sick of winter, and I needed some flowers in my life. So Zeb and I did what any old door hoarder would do, we painted some antique doors we had laying around. We did a full DIY showing how we painted these doors, blended the paint on the border and had fun using floral JRV Stencils. Supplies: Bohemian Blue: https://jamirayvintage.com/products/b...

Easy Anthropologie Tapestry Hack

Did you watch this week's Waste Not Wednesday live? Zeb and I went rogue to create this Anthropologie inspired tapestry. I had an idea in my head, but I really had no idea of the end result. There are a few things I might have done differently, but overall I am in love with how it turned out. To watch us create this as well as our stamped tapestry head over to our channel (press the button below), and to purchase the supplies stop by the shop in Lehi or order online at JamiRayVintage.com.
