Back To Life- Refreshing Furniture with Paint and Daddy Van’s Wax

There are some pieces that just speak to me! They’re the ones I fall in love with, find the most joy in painting, and provide me with the lasting paint therapy I’m always referring to in my hashtags.

This little lady was one of those! She found her way to me in disrepair. She’d obviously been loved throughout her life but that love took its toll and the scars that remained were clouding her future!

Sad, right?

I loved on her with a good cleaning then drenched her with the color of life…Orange! Nothing speaks more vibrantly and I’ve not found a color that compares when it comes to versatility. I view orange as a neutral for this reason. It can be paired with any other color, standing out against or coordinating with, and brings so much character to a space.

Can you see her excitement? I couldn’t get the final coat on quick enough!

I described her on Instagram {you following me there?} as follows:

She’s strong and stately with curves in all the right places. Her beauty is timeless and her celebrated imperfections make her even more alluring.

Do you see that sweet face? I love it when those pop out! All the handles were unique and all took on the form of happy little birds! Made me smile!

She really did come to life in the studio and reminded me to celebrate the scars that have made me the person I am today! Vibrant and alive!

By the way…that beautiful interior was refreshed with Daddy Van’s all natural wax! I chose to use Antique Brown on this one because the scratches were deep, revealing a light wood. I shot a little video so you can see in real time just how easy this process is! The versatility of this wax is just incredible.

    That piece sis absolutely gorgeous. You did a fine job. I never heard of Daddy’s Van Wax. It works great. Where can I purchase this product?

    • Hi Carol! Thank you for your sweet compliments! Daddy Vans is amazing! A quick search in my sidebar will bring up several posts to show its versatility! You can link over to their website using the Daddy Vans button along the right as well. If you’re local you can pick it up at Mid Towne Antique Mall :)

  2. What a gorgeous job…she definitely found her way into the right hands! The distressed touches add to her air of being a lady with a past…

    I have a piece that looks almost identical to yours. Mine still had the original finish. I inherited my piece from my grandparents, it’s been in my family for three generations. Your piece looks absolutely stunning.
