I will start this blog by posting a photo of what started me on my furniture painting journey one year ago.
In the summer of 2012, we were updating the main floor flooring and I wanted hardwood in the dining room. I also wanted new dining room furniture. Sadly, there isn’t much of a market for mahogany furniture like mine unless you want to give it away. After several weeks on Kijiji and Craigslist, I decided I had nothing to lose by painting it. So I did.
I’ve always been a research junky and then I discovered Pinterest. Sometimes I wonder if that discovery was a good one or not 😉 I can’t tell you the number of hours I spent reading up on techniques, paint types, colours, fabrics, etc. After many weeks, I finally tackled it. I wish I was a blogger then because it really was a learning journey and I loved every minute of it.
Here’s a peak at how it looks now.
