Seven years ago, I started selling my hand painted furniture and vintage home decor online, though I have had my own business, Boulder Blue Studio, since 1998. Back then, I was painting faux finishes and murals on walls, and my clients started to ask me to paint kitchen and bath cabinets. Soon I was custom painting furniture and giving these old, slightly neglected, but beloved, pieces a new updated look. And that's when I discovered my passion to paint furniture!
Each piece is cleaned, sanded and base coated with tinted primers, latex or milk paint. Layers of paint and tinted glazes achieve the look I want. All my furniture is finished with either a flat or satin acrylic sealant. This gives the piece durability and easy maintenance. Just a damp cloth to clean and no waxing!
Thank you for visiting my online shop and allowing me to share what I do with you!
