I bought a pre-loved glass & pine china cabinet with a drawer base that had never had a finish and is paint ready, doesn't even need sanding. I want to do a somewhat rustic look in a cream color. I was thinking of a milk or chalk paint so it doesn't end up with a plastic look from todays acrylic latex paints. Can't find online from Home Depot or Michaels. (Anyone know of a store near Spokane, WA?)Where do I find these paints and how to use them? Thanks!
I have been wanting to make a little book nook for my daughter's room before she was even born. I had this idea of making signs that had my favorite places from books. I am not a very
good painter when it comes to little details like letters. However, I read about several ways to transfer fonts onto wood and thought I would give it a try. I think they turned out pretty close to the actual fonts and it was super easy and fun. I can also be the first to tell you if I can do it anybody can do it. :)
I am in the middle of transforming my master bedroom and just finished stenciling the walls and creating a Board and Batten Wainscoting. To see how I did it please visit my blog post http://www.lisascreativedesigns.com/lisascot...
