I want to talk with you about a furniture finish that I discovered a few years ago and I have been dying to try it ever since. It’s called Cerusing Finish (or sometimes Limed Finish), and basically it’s a process of rubbing a contrasting color into the pores of wood to highlight the patterns of the wood grain. See the gorgeous before and after project!
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.
You ever notice how one project just seems to lead to another on the ‘ol list? When we had our solid hardwood floors installed, I was shocked at the price to replace the balusters, railings, and steps. But 2 $25 quarts of paint and some elbow grease made a huge difference.
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!
