WooHoo I sold my first piece of painted furniture.


Today I sold my first piece, a coffee table that I bought off Craigs List for $10 , yes only $10. I painted it with DIY white chalk paint, distressed it a little and gave the top 2 coats of stain with poly.

    You are my hero. I want to redo furniture to resell. I currently have four pieces in my garage to play with. I can't wait to sell my first piece. Congratulations.
