Hello Fix Friends,

Are you ready for summer?  I know I am….. #bringontheheat …. the hotter, the better.

But for tonight, let’s talk furniture.  How about this awesome side table by Linda from The Home I Create?  You won’t believe how she refinished it.  I know I didn’t.  🙂This week, we are thrilled to feature a new product, products used in new ways, and a new technique.  Does it sound just like last week?  Well, yes….yes it does.  This is because we like to share beautiful pieces with a variety of refinishing options.  This week is, once again, totally awesome.

But first, please say howdy to your furniture lovin’ hosts.

Please feel free to follow your hosts on social media.

We’d love to share with you there.

First up is Linda from The Home I Create .  She found this side table for a song and brushed on oil-based Rustoleum paint.  I know.  Look at the smooth coverage.  Beautiful and amazing.

While Patricia at The Wood Spa , used a handful of different products…primer..paint..wax…to achieve this beautiful finish.  Then she has a special trick for adding the nailhead strip.  It was the first time I had seen it done this way.  Now, I’m a believer.

And last, but certainly not least, is Kandice from Just The Woods.  This was a very, very dark brown piece that she covered with white chalk paint in two coats.  Curious about bleed-through, I contacted her.  She said she got the good coverage by using a basecoat of gray chalk paint under the two coats of white chalk paint, but no primer. Another technique to point out is how she added a patterned paper to cover the drawer fronts.  It’s a real mistake saver.
