Finally something I can embrace and love painting!  I picked up this little find at the Salvation Army and it had an original World Market price tag of $49.99.  I got this for $13 and what a great piece to refinish!


I took this from drab to fab in two easy steps!


Here are the steps and products I used..


Use fine sweeping motions in all directions to create that metallic look (I also found it helps if you drink wine during the creative process on this one).  Let me tell you there is nothing more metallic on the market than these paints!  I love them!


I am really happy with my new $13 wine rack which I will have on hand at the Society of Decorative Painters Show in June!  Now all I need to do is fill this baby up.


Can you tell I am kind of thrilled with this weekend’s time in the Studio!



The secret to happiness is not always in doing what you like, but in mindfully liking whatever you do.  Be present with each step, do your very best, and let go of the rest.  There is always, always, always some reason to be grateful and some interesting lesson to learn along the way.”
