Our Pearlescent Nightstand features a combination of some of our most favorite painting techniques. First we applied 2 layers of chalk paint, followed by wash of Pearl Plaster from Artisan Enhancements. We played around with wiping it back and stippling it, going back and forth between the two until we found a look we liked. We can provide you with all of the supplies you need to do this yourself - right down to the towels and brushes! Visit us online or at one of our Long Island, NY locations. We can't wait to see you! #pearlplaster #artisanenhancements
Good evening, hope you’re enjoying a dry night, don’t know about you but I’m sick of the rain 😩
*LONG ESSAY ALERT*
So, I’ve been working on this piece on and off for a few weeks now, it’s given me a few problems to say the least. I bought it already painted (see last pic) it wasn’t great, there were parts which had flaked off and dripping etc so took quite a bit of sanding. But as I was taking it to the car, I went and dropped the glass top which smashed all over the car park 😳🤦🏼♀️ it was a blessing in disguise really as I wasn’t sure what to do with it as it was scratched and marked. As you can see from my previous pieces I’ve been a little obsessed with doing the marble effect using paints, I’m trying to tweak my technique so seeing as though the glass smashed I decided this would be the perfect piece to do it on. I also saw the amazingly talented @eclatdesignsbycrystin do a very similar thing to one of her pieces and was inspired by her (thank you 💙) sorry for steeling your ideas 😉 I learnt the marbling technique from lovely @jonathonmarcmendes_paintedlove but mixed Crystin’s techniques with his on this one, I loved the gold and turquoise colours together, I also added some @artisanenhancements pearl plaster to give a speckled pearlised shimmer, it’s very subtle but looks really pretty. I then added some Epoxy resin, [email protected]I can say is... I should read instructions 😩 I confidently added the resin to the painted marble top, left it to dry and it was sticky, swirly, hard in places, it was awful!! I then did some research and realised I hadn’t mixed it enough 🙄 so, I stripped it off which consequently stripped the marble effect off, did another marble effect, hated it, so painted over it and did it again 😂😂 The epoxy went great this time, woohoo! Sometimes you just gotta ignore how many man hours it’s taken you and learn by your mistakes 🤷🏼♀️ The piece is painted in @anniesloanhome Provence then dry brushed with @fusionmineralpaint Inglenook and Annie’s Old White. Thank you to my lovely local stockist for Annie Sloan Paints @myvibranthome I really enjoyed our chat ☺️ and to fusions stockist Sarah @home_revival for all your paint advise 💛
I love getting my day started bright and early - I get more accomplished! This morning I did all of the stenciling on the drawers of the dresser I’m working on. I think it looks gorgeous 😍
Thank you @studio184 for carrying such beautiful stencils. I’m in love with this one 💕

One of the EASIEST ways we know how to make a décor rehab project stand out is with Artisan Enhancements Pearl Plaster. Just brush it on over your painted piece before you seal and protect it! •
For more of a sheer, washed effect, spray a little water on the furniture first, then brush on the Pearl Plaster with a regular brush or a chip brush. You can even scrunch up a shop towel and blot the Pearl Plaster while it's still wet to create a subtle mottled effect! •
To make your life EVEN EASIER, we have all of the products you'll need to do this yourself, from spray bottles to shop towels. No running around town! Drop by one of our Long Island, NY locations or shop online at www.suitepieces.com.
