I Paint Furniture

In case you haven't heard me say this before, "I paint furniture."

The following is a piece which went from "great aunt drab" to beautiful! I wanted to share it today because I am participating in Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Feature Friday.

This Chest is Painted with Robin's Egg Blue by Maison Blanche

Finished with a Dark Wax Also by Maison Blanche


Slight Distressing Around Keyhole & Brown Paint Spatters


 It's a beautifully sunny day here at Hillcrest Cottage. I am thinking I might have to check out some neighborhood estate sales in a few minutes.

Happy Friday!

  4. WOW! That is gorgeous! I've been studying painted furniture lately because we've purchased a rental town home, and I need to furnish it this summer . . . cheaply! I thought it would be fun to find some old pieces (cheap!) and paint them. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

    1. Check out Annie Sloan Chalk Paints and also Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paints. Both are two good ways to start...no prep work needed!
