03/31/2021

Sometimes, it’s just as hard to know when a project is finished as it does to start it! I knew I was going to refinish this table by staining, BUT the creation evolved when my initial Lemon Peel table did not happen, so it moved to this one. Well, THAT didn’t work because this table really didn’t want to scream at people with it’s bright color...Katie KatieDid Designs and Michele Vintage Revival Design Co. to the rescue again. They both agreed on my choice of the softer yellow; and Michele “sweetly encouraged (as in a big NUDGE)” to line the drawer and sides with rice paper. So....Meet my newest project! .
.
This sweet little antique, walnut spool table got a major upgrade with General Finishes Java Gel stain and Paint Couture Paint Spanish Sunrise, which is a much softer yellow than it’s Lemon Peel sister. The drawer front, and the center portion of the legs (thanks M) received the paint treatment while the rest was stained; top-coated with a mix of GF Gel Topcoat and PC Topcoat; and Re·Design with Prima rice paper was used to line the drawer interior and exterior sides. That sweet knob was begging for company and the piece was looking a little flat...so here comes knowing when to stop! I added one of my fave products, Gold Gilding wax, throughout ...LIGHTLY! I couldn’t resist adding a bit of stencil design to the knob to add some punch, but resisted adding more. She’s now ready for her forever home! #makeityours #paintedfurniturelove

There’s been a lot of yellow and green posts lately, so showing red some ❤️. Loving these vintage PC Flett stoneware jam jars from England, which pair so nicely with this antique Hungarian cabinet and all the primitive kitchenalia! Those towels? Yes please! Makes we want to roll up my sleeves, put on an apron, and bake. (P.S. I don’t bake, but this could inspire me). 😜 #yourhomeyourstory

This is us. A super what I call “bee bop” day where we are completely off with no agendas, no work or shop to-dos other than to gather a few things on our mental, physical and spiritual “to get” lists. I seriously need to listen to more mindset podcasts and friends...because this is the result. (1) Mindset mentor: focus on “focusing” and get noise cancelling earbuds to help with distractions, and read more (I read a lot, so this was just an excuse to buy more books). ✅ (2) after much discussion about God recently with friends, acquire a new study bible/bible ✅, (3) I am not a “product” girl, but needed a few beauty products, so friend Katie @kdiddesigns recommended @bluemercury ...I am NOW a product girl 😂 ✅ I am hoping to looking like Jennifer Anniston by ...Monday. And a little whiskey ...because you can always use a little more whiskey. I believe were were successful in nourishing the trifecta. Happy Sunday-ing everyone! Back to work tomorrow!

03/28/2021

Happy Sunday everyone! It’s a rainy day here and I am thinking “lazy porch days” and rustic, chippy, and all things porch. I recently shared a rusty crib-turned-daybed, and a few dressers that would be perfect for your cottage, porch etc., and may I suggest these perfect chippy specimens? From this New England chippy table, to the Hungarian stools (2) and New England stool/small table. Great for side tables, stools, plant stands, garden work! Think sunroom, porch, cottage, cabin, studio, lake house, farmhouse! We open Wednesday and Thursday, 11-4! Come see us and let us help you create your dream space! @ Rust and Refind #chippygoodness #porch #yourhomeyourstory

03/27/2021

Let’s talk antique, primitive farmhouse/colonial fireplace surrounds. I recently acquired this green chippy one (Second pic) just because I loved the chippy goodness and all the possibilities. Architectural salvage is all the rage right now because creatives do wonderfully creative things with it. But, I was curious about them so when this @oakdesignproject #stonehouserevival IG post popped on my feed a couple days ago, I started to research. And research. Know what I found out? Nothing! Just more Pinterest pictures of a few awesome specimens. The one thing I ascertained is they (1) are for fireplaces. (2) Have doors to perhaps HIDE something or prevent a draft? (3) seemed to primarily be in colonial and/or farmhouse kitchens and perhaps other living spaces and (4) Categorized as primitive. Google has failed me. So for now, I’ll go with my gut and say they were to hide any drafts, more than likely a New England “Thing”, and that they can now be used as wall decor, headboards, or to create your own cabinet. If any of you have anything else, please comment. I’m dying to know! Jeff Devlin help? #saturdayshare

#fridayfeels 🌞 and more yellow since I didn’t get to paint the table in @paintcouturepaint Lemon Peel! Getting my yellow fix with these freshly cut forsythia branches using my fave garden tool, these @felco_official 919s. We may have downsized into a small flat with no yard or lawn maintenance, but I can still get my outdoor and garden fix cutting select branches from the wide array of trees and shrubs in the complex. And I don’t have to prune them either! 😝

Finally, it’s Friday!
.
As a creative and small business owner, traditional week/weekends aren’t so, well, traditional. One day flows to the next; I can be “off” on a Monday and “working” all weekend. But, no matter...I can still FEEL Friday and the weekend. There’s a hum, a quiet and reflective, buzzing and relaxed vibe. Mr. Rust and Refind is off. We laze about in the morning if we aren’t “small business-ing”. Our friends entertain or want to go out. Even when we are at the shop, or open, the customer traffic is different. Don’t you agree!? So, happy Friday into the weekend everyone!

Sometimes the best laid plans....well, you know. And, I’m blaming it all on Michele Vintage Revival Design Co. and Katie KatieDid Designs . This sweet little table was headed for a major makeover going from Paint Couture Paint Modern Rattan to Lemon Peel, as stated in my previous post. I am feeling yellow...I need bright and light. HOWEVER, while in the process of sanding, the best chippy happened. This can be so hard to replicate or do on purpose, so when it happens naturally? Yeah. Girls say leave it be for now ...this is a super sweet table perfect for the porch, cottage, cabin, bathroom, or sunroom. Use as a plant stand. So many options. For now, the chippy stays and on to the next project, in which that design plan changed as well (stay tuned for that story later). Sometimes, it takes an artisan market to raise really great projects. 😁 @ Rust and Refind

Did you know there is a psychology to color? It’s true, there is! And it’s been yellow vibes for me recently! 🍋Positive meaning: Optimistic; Youthful; Attention Grabbing; Happiness. 🍋Negative meaning: Irrationality; anxiety; Frustration; Caution.
.
So, I may be anxious and frustrated about painting something a bright color since neutrals are way more popular! Am I being irrational and throwing caution to the wind by ignoring the trend of white, black and blue? I remain optimistic! 😀🌞 I’m headed to the shop to paint a sweet little table in Paint Couture Paint Lemon Peel for a pop of color at the shop. Lemon peel can be toned down with glaze or warmed with mixing colors, too. Check out the last piece I painted in Lemon Peel with a mix of Kale Sprout, amongst others in this #throwbackthursday pic! So, today I choose happiness. Yellow it is! @ Rust and Refind

We know this! Whether it’s stress because of work, a project, way of living, relationships, whatever. Take time to enjoy that sunrise and sunset. Breathe. Dump or lose the excess weight (literally and figuratively), and return or divest yourself of the expensive things in your life. Personally, for us, the #livingsmall has been the best thing we have done recently and wish we’d done earlier. It really is freeing. Not so much the mortgage, although wow..., but more for the STUFF, the maintenance, the way of living. No yard work to worry about. Not a lot to clean. We found ourselves literally living in three rooms in the BIG house, to living in three rooms in our tiny flat..it really is good for our peace of mind. #tuesdaytip

I wish I had a picture of my smile when I spied and grabbed this 🌼 daffodil bundle in the store. This splash of yellow ..a tiny impulse buy..just made me happy! Maybe it’s the sunny, spring day? Yellow? Nestled in this corner of our tiny kitchen in our tiny flat, with things that have a story and mean something to us is this “Flat Sweet Flat” sign that was given/made by friend Katie KatieDid Designs when we had our first “social” in this new, small home of ours; the pottery is a mix of vintage Turkish pottery from Mr. Rust and Refind’s parents they had from living in Turkey, the lemon pottery came back with us from our three years in Italy, and the board is a vintage board I purchased on one of my picking trips a long time ago. All of these “things” are pretty, have a story and a function. The pottery stores our coffee filters, garlic, tea, etc., and that Itsy bitsy copper “pot” holds toothpicks. I have a huge copper collection, of which only a portion is here in our flat (the rest in storage), so I had to have a bit of copper in that part of the kitchen. And, of course, the pottery anchors the space with COLOR and ties in with the rest of the living space. I guess I could say this is my happy corner!

It’s #sundayshare time! Claudia and Mariano recently purchased this Italian iron and granite table and repurposed column floor lamps from the shop to put in their home in Richmond. I may be biased, but I think they look super in their space! Thank you C&M! And, we love the positive review for our local delivery team, as well!

The connection between military friends and mentors lasts a lifetime! As a small business owner, support of family and friends is as important as customers, and Mr. Rust and Refind and I loved the visit by LTG(R) Bob Dail and wife Anne. It’s not often we meet up with our military friends anymore and we miss the comradery and connection. Super visit, and lovely dinner at @huntersheadtavern ! Highly recommend. The food and ambiance are superb. Of course, Anne and I were “dishing” about the pots the Pot Roast was served in. Dishes? That’s another mutual connection and addiction 😀. P.S. Make sure to ask to buy a loaf of bread (and beg for a slab of the butter) to take home. Delish! #friendssupportingfriends #smallbusinesssupport #loudouneats @ Hunters Head Tavern

A Collected Home Tells Your Story

Rust and Refind: is about finding old things again and "rustifying" or refining them. Redefining, Repurposing, Refreshing, Recycling, Renewing, Refinishing. These “R" words that update old, warn, dated pieces and merging them with new and modern. It's the juxtaposition of rustic and refined and incorporating into a harmonious setting. Rust and Refind suggests an eclectic mix of finds, or the opposites attract of home decor, both sides of the railroad tracks, if you will, such as a barn door and a chandelier. A home that has an eclectic, collected-over-time feel is a home that tells a story, something that Brenda is passionate about in home styling.

Born and raised in upstate New York, Brenda has always had a passion for decorating homes and would pen and paper design her "bedroom" and future home since she was a little girl (no Pinterest then). Since 18, however, she has primarily lived in the South and abroad and has been an Army wife since 1992, which included several moves and several homes. She learned to unpack, settle in and decorate each home quickly, and incorporate the collected broad and eclectic range of must haves from all her travels and assignments. Exposure to many styles around the world, along with years of watching home shows, perusing home magazines, managing an antique home décor shop, trolling antique shows/flea markets/barn sales, has inspired her design aesthetic and desire to help redesign the decor in the American home. She is a believer in the "Collected Home" and your home telling your story with new and old, sentimental, and adopted treasures.

Now retired from the military life and an empty nester, she and her husband are settled (for now) in Northern Virginia. A daughter is in flight school in the Navy, and another is in Army ROTC at The University of Tennessee allowing for much more time to be a creative. A fanatic about design and organization, finding and transforming treasures, and wanting to help others find and collect their own along the way lead to the first chapter of the Rust and Refind story when she hung her first sign at the now burned Mount Vernon Antique Center. Being in this business, she has also collected a lot of creative friends, which inspired her to open an Artisan Market where a few great creatives can gather and sell their product and be co-inspired and collectively inspire you in one location. Thus, a new chapter in the Rust and Refind book has started, and in July of 2018, the Rust and Refind Artisan Market was created, housing interior designers, furniture painters, craftsmen, fine artists, and more. She calls it the Talent-Filled, Fun-Filled, Drama-Free Zone. Located in charming Aldie, Virginia and open once a month for events, by appointment, workshops, and Paint Shop Wednesdays! SMILE AND MAKE LIFE FUN!

I know it will be a smashing success and I can't wait to hear all about it. Lots of photos and details please. Wish I could be there to pop some corks and help you celebrate this amazing milestone.
