What a great week for furniture refinishing! This week we will share: (1) how a pro combined her skills with another pro to get a finished product, (2) how to refinish raw wood using hemp oil, (3) how to get the perfect French Country look, and (4) how to get a great finish using chalky-finish spray paint in a can.

Although Ashley from Vintage Refined is an expert in furniture refinishing, she didn’t have the experience necessary to handle the upholstery. On her post, she explains how she combined her skills with those of another expert to create this beautiful checked chair. It’s really a good lesson in DIYing what you can and then hiring an expert for the rest. Thanks for linking, Ashley.
Lisa from The Purple Hydrangea had to remove layers and layers……….and…. layers and layers of paint from this beautiful spindle-leg table. Once the wood was finally revealed, it seemed a shame to cover it up again. On her blog, she explains how she used only hemp oil to achieve this lovely natural finish. Thanks for sharing this process with us, Lisa.
Nancy from Slightly Coastal Designs is one of our resident decorators and lovers of all things French Country. In her post, she explains how a dark and dated French table is refinished and perfectly distressed to sport a sweet French Country look. Love the table, Nancy. Thanks so much for sharing.
And Crystal, from What Treasures Await, used a chalky-spray-finish paint that comes in a can to color-up this lovely chair. Being a lover of all things aqua, I couldn’t help but adore the easy-on-the-eyes richness. Thanks so much for linking, Crystal.
