Brushes/Paint June 19 2012, 0 Comments

A fresh of batch of paint arrived yesterday along with the brushes, small , medium and large.

 

There a little bit of excitement with this order I had a new delivery service do the drop off, and the driver would not bring the delivery in the store, he lifted the skid down from the truck and placed in the road right in front of the store!!!!

It was a very hot and humid day and took awhile to unload the skid I was here by my self , the good thing is Lots of Paint, and the Brushes and Clear wax .

Until next time,

Elizabeth

Wolfe Island Kitchen June 19 2012, 0 Comments

I have been working on this little project for sometime and we are almost complete.

The cottage/summer house is located on beautiful  Easy Lane at the other end of Wolfe Island.

We started the project plans and design process about this time last year.  It has been a while, normally it take much less time to install and design a kitchen, but since this is a cottage and it gets closed for the winter and it is on an island and we have to deal with the ferry no heat and water for the season once it is closed , we decided that the install should happen early in the season.

Beautiful spot and all the work done by local contractors , the clients are from Toronto and they visit most weekend from May to Thanksgiving.

Here are few pictures from my part in the project.

 

 

There are .uppers we wanted to keep the lines clean and simple to go with the rest of the cottage and we have plenty of storage in both areas

Just have to connect the range hood and we are all done.

Until next time,

Elizabeth

Crakle Varnish March 04 2012, 0 Comments

Two Part  set for achieving a crackled varnish finish like the cracked varnish on an old Masters Painting. The size of the cracks can be varied according to how fine a layer of the Step 2 is applied . The thinner the coat the smaller the cracks.

This was easy to use I had a base coat of Duck Egg Blue , coverage is approximately 20 square feet for step 1 and step 2 i s a little less. Step 1 dries quickly it is very shinny and appears wet, I applied step 2 and then used a hair dryer to dry, you can also let it dry naturally, but of course I could not wait. I applied some dark wax over the area to give it some details.

Loving this product , so easy . Other crackle varnish I used has not given such great results so quickly.

Until next time.
