DIY-end-table-storage-Crafts-Unleashed

While I’ve always admired furniture painting projects on various blogs, I never took one on because I don’t have the patience for them.  Sanding, priming, staining….ugh!  I would lose interest before ever completing the project.  Then I tried Americana’s Chalky Finish Paint, and my views changed.  No tedious prep work required with this product:  Just paint it!  I’ve been decorating my house with thrifted items that I refresh with Chalky Finish Paint, and here’s my newest piece.  Inspired by this {Read More}

I had the opportunity to use the Americana {Read More}
