Refinished French Provincial | High Gloss Furniture | Automotive Paint


One day I was fine painting with chalk paint and putting satin and matte finishes on things, then Lisa comes back from a Texas flea market with the most beautiful, glossy, blue dresser you’ve ever seen. I decided that very day that I had to figure this out, and give auto paint a whirl.
