I can’t tell you how good it feels to once again be open for business with my own shop, finding old or neglected pieces and restoring them. I love to see new life brought back to what were once amazing pieces. Or sometimes I find something that’s quite frankly ho-hum and really turn up the “wow factor” with one of my favorite Dixie Belle chalk paint colors.
In this blog (a first for me), I’m excited to share some of the behind the scenes work that goes into the pieces I sell in TheDowntown Farmgirl shop. I’ll show techniques with paint, brushes, waxes, textures, and for adding layers. I’ll also share some creative ideas to repurpose a piece for homes today (when I finish it won’t look like your grandma’s buffet any longer).
I hope you’ll tune in and make comments, recommendations, requests.
