Today on the blog is the “2nd Step in my Five Steps to Restore Thrift Store items.” This is a five video series to restore thrift store items. I will be sharing all about A Maker’s Studio products.
Refurbishing second hand items.
As you know, I am a Maker Boss for A Maker’s Studio and carry all of their products online on my website. You can go here to shop.
The Launch of A Maker’s Studio was this past weekend.
You can read all about my trip here.
The second step in restoring and refurbishing second hand items; like vases, trays and or pumpkins (cause it is that time of the year) is too paint them.
After your items have been cleaned with A Maker’s Studio furniture cleaner and a lint free cloth, they then can be painted. A Maker’s Studio carries a paint called Rescue and Restore Paint and it comes in a variety of colors. Good tools are also very important.
The Rescue and Restore paint can be used on any surface without prepping by sanding. A Maker’s Studio Furniture cleaner is the only preparation needed. You can paint wood or ceramics, like I am on my video series or you can paint leather, fabric, glass, metal, etc.
Look at these adorable onesies that were painted by soaking in a combination of water and paint. Approximately 1 part paint to 5 parts water. The yellow onesie was painted with Rescue and Restore paint in the color Hissy Fit. This paint color can be purchased in the 2 oz. or 16 oz. size depending on the project you are working on. Each can be purchased here.
The Rescue and Restore paint can also be used with A Maker’s Studio Adhesive Stencils. This table was painted in Rescue and Restore Paint Blessed and then a stencil was put on the bottom shelf. The mesh stencil is the Floor Tile Clubs and can be purchased here. The paint I used for the stencils was Gathered.
As you can see there are so many options available.
Tomorrow, I’ll share with you the “3rd Step in my Five Steps to Restore Thrift Store items.”
