I had the pleasure of reconnecting with Lana last month during a furniture renewal class. She is so full of energy and ideas. This was her first “big” project to tackle:
Lana says: “I really like it! Got very impatient though. Ha! I know now why pieces in antique, and little boutique shops cost so much. Ha! But it’s neat to see the finished product and a nice accomplished feeling.”
The classes I offer don’t teach you any wave-your-wand-magic tricks.
Unfortunately. Cuz, can you imagine? I could maybe sell some furniture. Maybe people would read this blog? Wonder if Southern Living would put some of my stuff in one of their idea homes? Perhaps a late night talk show appearance? I guess I’d need an agent. Have your people contact my people. Hair flip. (See, that’s funny because my hair is so short. Probably not funny now since I had to explain it.)
Mmmkay. Well, as it stands. None of those things is happening. Renewing furniture is a process. The ‘chalked paint’ is considerably easier than stripping, sanding, etc. But it does take time. As daddy always said, “If something is worth doing, it’s worth doing right.” I agree. And this, is so worth it!
