Wanted to try out a different look….took this outdated little end table…painted some Old Town Paints’ Green Apple, then covered it with a mix of Navy and Cast Iron….distressed it a bit to bring out the Green Apple…then finished it with OTP Black Wax….I’m loving the way it looks..
How cute and retro is this little guy? Found him in an old thrift shop and thought he just needed a little something to update his “look” . I wanted to keep some of his old charm, so I painted everything except for his face…Using Barn Red and Black wax from Old Town Paints’ new line of Shabby Chic! He’s looking pretty dapper now, don’t you think?
Dimensions are approx 2 5x 14 x 28.5 $125
I saw this coffee table in an ad one day and loved it…decided I could maybe make one myself…just tweak it some…I work with cypress mostly (hence the name of my company) so I knew I definitely wanted to use that for the top; instead of the pine that the table in the ad had used. Bruce gathered up all the pipes we needed and then we got the cypress from a house being torn down that had been built in the late 1800’s. We went with the 2in thick planks to make it a really sturdy and heavy table. I painted the pipes all black and then sanded down and stained the cypress a dark walnut…finished with Old Town Paints Clear Matte Finish….I’m loving this table…you can plop your feet right up on top and it doesn’t move an inch…and it’s big enough for everyone to sit around during the game with our drinks and snacks or to have family game night! LOVE this table!
Dimensions are 29×54
If you haven’t tried this amazing paint yet…then what the heck are you waiting for?? Truly, it’s wonderful..
Old Town Paints has formulated a Chalk Style Finish Paint comparable to those more expensive Chalk Paint labels currently on the market.
Our Chalk Style Finish Paint has a soft matte velvety finish, which turns to a soft subtle sheen when finished with our soft wax, for protection and durability.
It has been specifically created to be used in a variety of ways on many different surfaces. It can be used as a wash, regular smooth paint, or can be applied thick to create texture.
Anyone can create a masterpiece with our paint. One of the best features…. No priming or sanding is needed prior to painting!
Well, here at The Old Cypress House, we are not only using it on all of our pieces, but, we also sell it…you can pick it up in the shop here in Prairieville, LA or you can order it online….Currently, we have 55 colors to choose from…so, every single week, we have decide to promote one of the colors…Every Sunday, a different color will be randomly chosen and for the entire week, will be 15% off!!
