When I posted this before and after buffet painting photo on instagram, I got a lot of questions about what paint I used and the preparation that went into it. Over the years I have painted many pieces of furniture and cabinets and I feel like I have a good handle on all the ways that it can be done and the reasons for using different methods, and the results and durability of each method. I am not an expert by any means, but I have done it quite a few times and had some pieces for years so I do have my own personal experiences I can share if you are thinking about painting furniture (or cabinets!).
I thought today I would go back and write a little post about the $300 laundry room refresh I did for my mom a few months ago. That little makeover got a lot of buzz and was even featured in Apartment Therapy! If you are interested in reading the AT post, you can find it here. I think the reason it was so popular was because it involved zero actual construction and had a very low price tag but yet it still packed a really big punch. I have had a few questions about the products and methods I used to update the space so I thought I would write a blog post with some of those answers for you, all in one place. This is a meaty post so let’s get into it!
Hello everyone! Or hello no one, since this is the first ever blog post I’ve ever written, there is a good chance it may just go entirely unread. Oh wait, I’ll probably make my mom read it. Hi, mom!
Anyway, I’m new to the blogging scene and I thought I would get my feet wet with a quick post with some tips on affordable art! In the past year or so I have drastically increased my art around the house, and it has brought me so much joy! I’ve added art to the kitchen, leaning on shelves, in gallery walls, oversized, or stacked. You name it, I have tried it! With all this influx of art, I needed to find a way to keep the budget in check.
