****I have received free product in return for an honest review!
Life has been so busy as I prepare to open up my first shop. I thought I would blog about the process, but the truth is between 3 boys, 2 huge puppies, and my furniture business I’m barely keeping up! To find out my husband and I are to be even more outnumbered come summer. I thought this is the perfect time to sample a new paint line that’s no prime, no sand, no chalk, and silky smooth. “Colour Your World” is our theme for this months Fab Furniture Flippin’contest. My world, not my 3 boys world, but mine. I knew it was meant to be when the directions read “Slap it on!” I can’t do much in my first trimester, but I can do that! So, Velvet Finishes, let’s see what makes ya special!
Step 2: SLAP IT ON! This is 3 coats of Ethereal. It takes more layers than chalkpaint and dries slower, but it’s worth it to not have to sand out the bush strokes. I was playing with technique here with the brighter pink. I went more bold.
*Bedrails are an upholstered 2×6 with thrift store fabric. Screw a bed claw to hook onto bed on both ends and done.
What I loved about this project is there is NO ODOR and no sanding, which means you can work on this inside your house. Just in time for Gilmore Girls release! It’s guilt free binging if you have a project. Pick your color and colour Your world with Velvet Finishes by Kellie Smith.
