One of the most asked about projects on the blog is “How durable or long lasting are your white cabinets?” Today, I am giving a full update and even I am surprised about the answer.
Avoiding brush marks and streaks is the ultimate goal of everyone who paints. It is one of the things that I get asked most about with my painting projects. Well, I am spilling all my secrets today!
On of the most common worries that I see from clients, friends, and readers is about the durability. How do I protect my painted furniture? Can I scrub it? Will it show fingerprints or smudges? These are all very valid questions and today I am answering these burning questions!
After I finished up with the kid’s dresser, the very next project was this to seriously update this bed bed. This bed proves that you can really update a piece of furniture that is iconic to another era (and not in a good way!). The after is a serious change that you won’t believe!
This One Room Challenge update includes a newly painted chair makeover from orange to sexy black! The antique desk will be finished soon as well.
There is no question that painting kitchen cabinets is a big project, and it’s tempting to just slap some paint on them and be done. But if you want a paint job that will look great with a finish that will last, it’s best to take the time to do it the right way.
