I am a small town girl who is living the dream of owning her own business. I opened the shop in 2005 and it just keeps getting better and better. I love anything crafty but lean towards fabric (of course!) but will try anything at least once. My daughter Shelby helps me in the shop. And of course I couldn't do it without the support of my cute hubby and fantastic son!
This started out as a salmon color and end up yellow/green
Okay, I promise I will try and lay off the furniture refinishing posts after this! With Shelby moving out I have been doing nothing but painting furniture. So, I am here to tell you if you have been thinking about doing it "Do it" It isn't as hard as you think. I bought these 3 tables for $50.00. I didn't get a picture of the before and I am so mad. They were HIGH gloss, with and inlaid piece on the top. Definitely not my style. I sanded and sanded the tops, until I was in a cloud of fumes and still couldn't get the shine off of them. So, another trip to Home Depot and 4 cans of Primer (Rustoleum primer) I primed them. Then I added the color. I have found that I like the Rustoleum paint better than the Krylon. The Krylon brand had a bigger color selection but Rustoleum covers much better. Then we antiqued it with a Rustoleum java brown glaze. Easy Peasy!! So, if you have something you have been thinking about painting do it!!
