2 Really Cool Up-Cycle Projects Using White Swan Paint

It’s the second week of January and I am still celebrating my DIY Paint color of the month, White Swan!

Every Saturday morning at 9am CST, my friend (and amazing vendor at my store, Morning Dew Marketplace), and I are LIVE on my Facebook business page.  We create something new from something old or used EVERY WEEK!!!

Vintage Book Re-Do

This first project combines old books, White Swan paint, Crystal Clear Chandelier Liquid Patina, Clear and Dark Waxes, and some really cool Moulds.


This is my finished book!

You can find old books at your local thrift shop for usually around $1.00.  Search around- get different sizes and shapes for a really unique set.  


This is Jill”s finished book! She also combined texture and a cute butterfly transfer.  Go wherever your imagination takes you.  These moulds are SO MUCH FUN!!

Okay- here is the video on how to make these gorgeous books!

Wasn’t that fun?

Up-Cycled Cabinet Door with Raised Stenciling

Okay- the next project using DIY Paint White Swan is a darling up-cycle using a cabinet door and some $0.49 drawer pulls.

You can find cabinet doors at your local ReStore, or at many local thrift shops.  They are usually under $5.  Also- keep your eyes open for pulls.  Jill found these skinny gold pulls for super cheap.  They were really ugly! But when you paint them, they always turn out super cute!

Here is my tray.  I used White Swan, Crystal Clear Chandelier Liquid Patina, Stencil Fiber Paste and Clear and Dark Waxes.


Isn’t it just so sweet?!!

Jill used Letterpress Gray with Clear Wax and a hint of gold wax on top.  You can make the Gold Wax using Clear Wax with some Golden Ticket Liquid Patina drizzled in.  So pretty!!


It’s gorgeous!!

Here is the video showing you exactly how these were made.  Enjoy!

Which project is your favorite?  Tell me in the comments below!

Until next time,

Jane xoxo
