I used to say I'd never paint wood but then I saw how paint can save some really worn out wood/veneer pieces... it gives them a new lease on life! I still love natural wood but I love painted pieces, too :-)
Can't wait to start chalk painting all my old hand-me-down furniture! It's a new technique my cousin just taught me about & can be used on linoleum, vinyl, wood, or anything without any stripping, sanding, or prep work! Plus it's durable & absolutely beautiful!!!
