WL PAINTING PHILOSOPHY

ENVIRONMENTAL + PRESERVING QUALITY

 WL  DISTRESSING

OUR SIGNATURE FINISH!

Often seen in our store are painted antique + vintage pieces that have a range of distressing. Light, Medium and Heavy distressing is crafted according to the piece, its attributes and future function. It is a final detail to highlight the woodworking of a piece, and give a naturally worn look - enhancing character and re-incorporating the authentic wood that lies beneath.

 

We also finish pieces in a solid colour, or high gloss for a modern take - special projects + requests always welcome!

As an alternative to replacing, we encourage preserving the furniture you already have and/or a piece you are going to purchase that has the right bones (just not the right colour or finish) whether an antique heirloom or a piece with sound construction + distinct detail, we transform these pieces to fit your style through colour, painted solid or distressed, adding new hardware, a marble-top, or two-tones - all to enhance, customize, and preserve

DISTRESSED FINISH 

A distressed finish, also called 'antiquing' provides a look of aged character to a painted or stained surface.

 

Crafting the appearance of natural wear, we will often use a hand finishing process. Sanding the paint at intentional spots, grooves, edges, carvings, and sometimes scoring the wood finish - all to replicate the look organically achieved with a century in the weather!

 

These processes leave the surface of the piece with an antique look + feel where each piece is truly unique.

PAINT PROCESS

SURFACE PREP

- item is sanded + cleaned by hand

- remove hardware/knobs when applicable

IMPORTANCE POF SURFACE PREP?
- removes any protective varnish or lacquer that is on the surface of the wood

- making it easier for the primer coat to adhere

PRIMER

PURPOSE OF PRIMER?

-   helps create a base for an even paint finish, and future chipping

​-   helps block water, grease + stains that can bleed through your topcoat

-   improves adhesion of the topcoat so your paint will last longer +   look better!

 

SANDING AFTER PRIMER

-   sand primed surface after it has dried with a fine-grit sandpaper
(this helps the paint bond to the primer even better than it
already does)

PAINT + REPEAT

CLEAR COAT

DRYING, HARDENING; CURING

DRYING

the paint drying process corresponds to the evaporation of all solvents and diluents added to the paint in order to make it liquid or reduce its viscosity

 

HARDENING
the hardening of paint corresponds to the process by which the main polymer of the paint it creates and hardens with all other pigments and additives which comprises the paint, creating a solid and adherent coating

 

CURING 

the paint curing process corresponds both drying and hardening process, curing is the amalgamation of drying + hardening

* 30 days is recommended to keep the surface clear of object during its curation

 

 

PAINT COLOUR

-   we stock a straight black, 'Factory Black' and white, 'Oxford White'

-   custom paint colour optional, to be provided by customer

 

HAND-DISTRESSING

-   distressing/antiquing finish is available in light, medium or heavy

-   high gloss

-   matte

BUILT IN TO QUOTE

-   depending on the piece, mineral spirits may be used to remove dirt       
     and grease/oil

-   treatment for covering up stains and bleed through may be required in       cases of staining items

-   cleaning cloths, soft angled brushes for ornate details etc

-   gloves, sanding blocks, painters tape, drop cloth, lint-free rags

-   goggles, face mask, or a NIOSH approved respirator - this is in the     
    case of prepping antique + some vintage furniture, for protection     
    against potential toxic lead dust
