Christina from Phoenix Restoration is one of the experts in refinishing with high gloss paint. But this week’s piece even posed a challenge for her.  The veneer on the top was badly damaged and the wavy sides turned out to be plastic. What’s a girl to do?  Of course, you get to read all about the big fix by clicking through to her blog.  Thanks for sharing with us, Christina.

Mary from Orphans With Makeup always creates the most beautifully distressed pieces. This week, she shares a chest for the nursery that is refinished in a new paint especially made for nurseries.  As always, she provides lots of wonderful photos and a great tutorial on her blog. Love the Little Stork paint so much, Mary!  Thanks for linking.

Geniece from Funky Junk from the Country refinished this chest using layers of paint, wax, and topcoat (on the top).  Then the stencil was applied by hand using a black oil Sharpie.  When all of the work was complete, she added her signature glass knobs and took it to market.  My guess is that it sold before the day was out.  Thanks so much for sharing  with us, Geniece.

And the last feature for this week is from Brenda at Unique Junktique.  She used a product called Saltwash that is added to latex paint in order to create the finish.  It makes the piece look as though it was weathered by salt-water and sun.  Saltwash has been enormously popular this summer.  More details about how Saltwash works the magic can be found on Brenda’s blog.  Thanks so much for sharing with us.
