light and airy furniture makeovers.

here are a couple of furniture makeovers that i recently completed...it's always nice to refresh what you already have, rather than just buying something new, every time you need a change. these two furniture pieces were ones that my client has had for years...now they have a new look!

  7. Love the paint job on the antique dresser. Reminds me of a similar piece I painted for my daughter's room. Ended up taping off a tree with frog tape. I'd love to share the photos with you. E-mail me if you are interested in seeing that.

  8. Kristin,
    I love all your art projects. You are amazing! I noticed that you use a-lot of Benjamin Moore,do you use this for your murals as well? Or do you use plain acrylic paints.
