How to refinish furniture without sanding.
Take an old (or new $15 from WalMart) bookshelf, put wainscoating on the back, and add a piece of molding...paint it the color you prefer and you have a new, updated bookshelf.
(via Everything Fabulous: Decor Inspiration: Staircase Frame Collages. What’s your style?) “Measure the same distance from the collage to the stairs every second or third step, to keep the distance consistently.”
Get rid of that builder grade oak! use GEL stain.
Love the table with the bench

This is the best paint for distressing! Mix POP & water (I use 1/3 cup water) in a clean plastic container and shake til smooth. Add paint, shake again and paint your project! No need to sand before painting. After the paint has dried to the touch, sand (it's easier to sand now, but if you don't have time you can sand later). Remove dust with clean, dry rag - I use a dry paint brush to get in the crevices , then wax.
