October Projects: A Hodgepodge of Projects

Hello UP followers!

I know, I know. It's been a month since I've posted anything but I really have several good excuses. Meh, we all have excuses so let's not dwell on that and let's get to the projects from this past month.

I have everything in this post from a custom industrial table that we created for a local family to a clock we donated to a benefit for a young lady fighting her second battle with breast cancer. 

Let's get started.

This industrial coffee table was created for a local family. The wood that we used on the top was reclaimed from their Great Grandparents farm in North Dakota. {of course our camera shy friend wanted to get in on the action too}

I have also been working on a new line of industrial wall decor. These metal and reclaimed wood signs are in various sizes and wording. Look for them to be on Etsy in the coming weeks and at some of the Holiday Boutiques that I will be participating in.

Love how the boards cleaned up on this table, the clear coat really brought out the right amount of red paint and character too.

UP donated this giant wall clock to a benefit for a local breast cancer fighter. We were honored to have been able to help this young lady in her fight!

The clock is a repurposed wooden spool, that has been finished in a driftwood look. To complete the look we with distressed the numbers and added some industrial metal accents.

And finally, I got back into the studio to mix up this custom Annie Sloan Chalk Paint color...a lovely medium grey. Absolutely smitten by the balance of the stained wood with the warm grey and the mercury glass knobs. I have a lot of favorite projects over the year, but this color mix has got to be in my top 5!

 It's been almost 3 years since Urban Patina started and we continue to find so much enjoyment in creating unique, one-of-a-kind projects. Meeting and conversing with so many amazing people that enjoy and appreciate the history and art as much as we do, is just the icing on the cake!

Have a great week!
