Last summer, you may remember I featured a shop on Ottawa St. in Hamilton Ontario, “The Painted Bench”. In February of this year, Nicole and Melanie (co-owners and talented furniture-artists) opened a second location at 119 Kerr St in Oakville.
I finally found the time to drop by the new store and pick up some furniture painting supplies.
Sorrrrry… I didn’t buy you anything… but I thought I’d treat you to the next best thing and bring you back some inspiring photo’s.
I’ll bet these re-styled Annie Sloan Chalk Painted pieces will get your creativity flowing!
Don’t you love this charming Antique Sheet Music Cabinet… the beveled mirror makes this piece so unique.
An adorable “Numbered-Dresser” painted by Carolyn… a Painted Bench associate who’s always happy to help!
And take a look at this gorgeous antique Eastlake Style Dresser with mirror.
All this painted furniture against the dramatic checkered floor looks amazing!
And take a look at Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint “Provence” on the walls… I love it!
And this one is for all you furniture painters who store inventory… here’s a glimpse of some gorgeous pieces that are just waiting to be glamafied. I love this space. It’s a room busting at the seams with unlimited possibilities. I was so tempted to strap a few of these pieces to my back and make a run for it.
… and of course you can’t visit The Painted Bench without seeing a painted bench!
