I'm telling you now this isn't about running a race. I WISH I liked running, really do. It's furniture though, and that's ok too. I have plenty of pieces that take a bit of time to fine tune the look I am going for. Lots of others that are simple and to the point. Once in a while though I like to just do a 'quick and done' piece. Though as I'm writing this, I just realized that it did take my husband a few extra hours to remove the tumbled rock mosaic tiles that were on the top. Oops. Ok, but the painting was a fast finish!
It was a fast finish for me. Everyone needs some instant gratification once in a while!
Have a great weekend!

One of the reasons I am so pleased to have found Heirloom Traditions Paint Company is their forward thinking. They are always looking to be ahead of the game in formulating new products that our customers who create want and need. I honestly don't know when they sleep they are always working on not only products, but focused on making it easier for their retailers to best reach out.
So before I forget, I would like to remind you that you can not only get 10% off your online orders by using my coupon code: TWICENICE every time you order, but for a limited time you will receive a free paint brush (value, $39) if your order is over $75! Sweet deal!
My booth has been totally restocked and I've not only brought in newly released products but also 2 new colors that have been custom created by either another retailer or one of our product ambassadors. Many of those colors are not on the normal color charts, but are available online for you to purchase and available with retailers who choose to add them to their stores.
First up, a Drop Dead Gorgeous Blue by Lori of Thee Velvet Glove, Graceland Blue.
Next, fellow retailer Susan, from Extending Grace, has created a must have in your stash color called Olive You.
I also added these newer products to my booth to help serve my customers better, and I am very excited about them.
These are our new Metallic Top Coats. Metallic Masters Top Coats add sheer metallics that still allow your paint color to show through. You might remember that I used them on my little black side tables.
I mottled mine intentionally, but it is just as gorgeous in a smooth brushed on finish. It is formulated to go over fully cured wax surfaces for added durability. I am stocked in these colors: Champagne Shimmer, Copper Penny, and Tarnished Silver.
Finally, let me show you something that is truly a game changer! Re-Luv. Re-Luv is formulated to help you recolor your worn leather furniture, but it would also work on your leather briefcase, leather purse, or that leather pad on your desk. Endless possibilities! Here is an example by my friend Julia of Shangri~La Lane
Isn't that amazing?! You can bet I am looking for a piece of leather furniture to try this out!
It comes in 3 colors now, Mahogany, Ebony, and Chestnut. I am stocked in Chestnut, but will be ordering more colors soon. I believe they also plan to develop a lighter color at a later date.
I think this will be a great addition to our already wonderful line of products. I invite you to go to www.heirlooomtraditions.com to watch the video tutorials on any and all of these great products!
Of course I also invite you to contact me with questions too!
Have a fantastic and creative week friends!

I spent some time playing with some of Heirloom Traditions Paint new products over the break. One of them is the Metallic Top Coat. It's fabulous, and I'm so happy I'll be able to offer it up for my paint customers. Here is the before of the two side tables I completed.
It was so hard to get a good photo of the mercury glass knobs, but aren't they just the cutest little bars? Found these at Hobby Lobby if you want some too.
I love how each of these tables has the drawer placement in a different place, one up, one down.
These are a great size and a little on the taller end of side tables. Great bedside tables I would think. And now they have a touch of elegance about them.
You can always find information about shopping at the top of my page. Have a fabulous weekend!
