I am so excited to share a new paint line with you today! I am also going to include a step by step tutorial on how I painted the Sweet Coral Dipped Chest with these fun paint products.
The new Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint is currently available online at Home Depot and will be coming to the stores soon. You can have it shipped straight to your front door, or have it delivered to your local Home Depot and pick it up to avoid shipping charges!
This chest of drawers is about the sweetest thing I have ever seen! If I had a little girl, this one would be staying with me. :) This beautiful antique piece has so many stunning details. I painted it gray with some distressed white accents and a pop or coral on those curvy legs. Has all the original brass hardware in tact, which is very rare and it sits on original wood casters.
Welcome to our first online class for our DIY University! I know this is not a painted furniture feature (hope you are not disappointed), but I thought I would start with a CHEAP & SIMPLE project that anyone can do. Lets get started!
First up, let me clarify that the title "Funky Junk DIY University" is meant to be slightly funny and a little sarcastic. I dont want anyone to think I take myself that seriously. :)
I have had so many emails, comments and requests for tips and tricks on painting furniture and making various projects. I have been hesitant in the past to share the details because I did not consider myself an expert and certainly do not always do things the way they are "supposed" to be done...but it is the way that works for me. As I was thinking about changes I could make in 2014, I decided that featuring some DIY tutorials might be fun for all of us. When you see the behind the scenes details of some of my projects, it might be clear how funny the "DIY University" title really is. But I also hope it will provide some inspiration for you.
I hope to do a FUNKY JUNK DIY UNIVERSITY post once a week. These posts will feature new products and paint lines, tutorials (like how to paint a herringbone dresser or how to make a PARTAY TABLE !) and lots of tips and tricks!
