Old World Kinship, FARRAGOZ

If you've been following me for any length of time, you know I'm known for various paint techniques, and have been experimenting with finishes for many years. I've also shared a few with you.  My "Old World Finish" is one of my most viewed posts to date.  I'm not a novice when it comes to paint.  So, for me to share what I'm about to share, took some impressing.

To be perfectly honest, I am VERY protective of YOU, my readers.  I would not promote anything I did not consider to be of value to you.  So, let's get right to it.

I've been approached by quite a few companies with regards to advertising on my site, affiliates, etc.  I have to say, FARRAGOZ was the first to really capture my attention.  They'd been checking out my blog, thought it was a good fit for what they had to offer, and that my readers might benefit from their online course.  After reviewing their site, I agreed.

I felt a kinship right away.  We definitely share a love of old world finishes.  Just look at the beautiful clock above, and the angel plaque below.  You'll learn how to make each.

After multiple email exchanges, I was offered a course to review, and the opportunity to become an affiliate. I accepted.

I've reviewed the first lesson in the course, which is the wonderfully aged angel icon pictured next. I was somewhat familiar with some of the techniques, however, there were twists, turns, and variations that were a refreshing surprise. The techniques used can be applied to sooooooo many projects.

They're dedication to earth friendly recipes was impressive. You'll be instructed on EVERY aspect of each project seen here.  You'll learn how to mix your own paints, make molds, and a whole lot more.

Would you like to learn how to make this angel icon?  Well, you can, using organic materials.  I'm working on this project now.  Their step-by-step instructions are easier than you think, and you can move at your own pace.  You'll have an instructor guiding you every step of the way.

Would you like to have this beautiful trumeau hanging in your home?  I'm looking forward to completing this one.

I'll be sharing my finished projects with FARRAGOZ, and with you.

Of course, if you know me, you know I'll be experimenting with the techniques on a multitude of my own redesigns.  I already have a ton of ideas brewing.

Check out my sidebar, click on the banner, and take a look at the FARRAGOZ Furniture Painting Course. I think you'll like what you see.

P.S.  Their site is addicting.

This is not a paid post.  FARRAGOZ has enrolled  me in their course to give an honest review.  I am also an affiliate. All opinions are my own.


  1. Lucky you, Rosemary. I have been wanting to take that course, but haven't because of the time involved and the cost. I will surely be interested in all that you do. Thanks, for keeping us posted.

  2. I love the way you think - so careful and respectful...I wish you the best- should be really neat to see what you learn and how this goes.

    Bonne chance! Is great news, and I am so excited for you.

    Keep us posted!!

  3. Rosemary, I know if you recommend something it has to be great and wonderful. I look forward to seeing all you do. Blessings

  4. How exciting, Rosemary! I am sure you will create some wonderful things!!

  5. If someone who has successfully painted as many pieces as you have is impressed with this course, it must be good!

  6. Geez, Rosemary! This is totally awesome for you. Sounds like a great learning site, and what you've shown is beautiful. I'll definitely take a look!

  7. I can't wait to see your finished products Rosemary, I know they'll be is everything you create:)

    I was watching Flea Market Flip yesterday and you should totally be on the show!!! Watching all the makeover's I was thinking "Hah, Rosemary would blow you out of the water!":)

  8. If you're impressed then it must be good. I'll have to check them out. Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful creations.

  9. Sounds like a perfect match! I can't do the course right now but look forward to seeing what you make!

  10. Boy, Rosemary I would love to learn this but you really are so good at this. I don't know if I could pull it off like you. I will watch the piece you have on your site tomorrow more carefully. I can't wait to see what you come up with. I will be watching for sure!!!


  11. Just checked out the course and it looks great. I really look forward to hearing what you think about it as I admire your work so much. I'm really interested in finding out what products are recommended and if there are items that can only be purchased from them. I did chat online with someone on the site who said that "most" things could be found at local hardware and paint stores.

  12. Just reviewed the course and I believe this is exactly what I have been looking for. Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. I have signed up and can hardly wait to begin. I am gotten stale in my artwork and I think this is just what I need to jump start things again.

  13. I don't know if they can teach you anything better than what you already know and do daily?

    have fun, and keep us posted

  14. So excited to learn of this online course sompany, Rose Mary. I think you could be one of their instructors -- for sure!
    I would like to enroll... just need to find some free time!


    Thanks for sharing this with us.

  15. They picked the right girl I think. I know you will do wonders with this course and make even more spectacular things for us to admire and purchase.

  16. I was recently asked by them to advertise.After reading this I think I will contact them.I am always leery with whom I want advertising.
