    I am just getting started in painting furniture & have learned so much already. I painted a dresser with semi gloss paint & it isn’t selling. I think it is because of the paint. I am going to repaint it with chalk paint. Do you have any suggestions for colors? I love that you are having a drawing, especially with your best friend!

    • Yes it is so fun to be able to host a giveaway with Nancy! As for your dresser, I would go with something neutral. White or off-white are usually winners for me! Good luck! XO

    Hey! HELP!!! It’s probably because I’m 76 and only semi-tech, but I don’t understand how to enter either your drawing or your compadre’s. Sally Todd

    • Hi Sally! There should be a box that says “Enter the Giveaway”. Click on that and it should open the entry form from Rafflecopter. Choose to login via Facebook or by using your email. It asks for your name and email so that I have a way to contact you if you win. Then there are four different options to earn entries. The first one is just for stopping by. Cick on that and then in the bottom right-hand corner there should be a button to tap. That should give you two free entries and you’re dine. If you want more entries, keep going. Leave a comment then click on that option. And there should be a button that says “I commented”. Tap on that for more entries. And so on. Hope this helps! Good luck! XO

  121. I look forward to your blog posts every Week! I’ve been inspired many times to paint something or go thrifting. I’ve also painted my in entire sunroom with Behrs Bit of Sugar because of you!

  124. Congratulations on your six year blogiversary!!! So enjoy seeing all your fun makeovers and tips!!

  125. I need some wax!

  126. A year ago, my husband and I decided to makeover our guest room and bath. I started following you and Nancy on Pinterest for inspiration. Well, I caught the bug and have now completely made over both my boy’s bedrooms, bedroom furniture, and bathrooms. Cabinets and all! I find myself looking around the house for the next item that needs an update. Family members are now asking me to makeover their cabinets. Not sure I want to go there! It’s one thing to do my own, but I don’t want to cause a feud within the family if things don’t work out! Just wanted to thank you all your inspiration and tutorials.

    • Oh I love hearing that, Michelle!! It is definitely addicting ha ha! And isn’t it amazing what paint can do for real? My friends and family want me to do things for them all the time too, and honestly it’s just not as fun when you’re doing it for someone else LOL, but I usually do it anyway. Keep on creating, my friend! Best of luck to you on the giveaway! XO

    • Thank you, Susan! And amen to the break from politics! The tripods are four little triangle pieces that go under something you’re painting, perfect to raise a small piece of furniture up off the ground to paint the feet, or to put under a flat piece if you have to paint both sides. Good luck to you! XO

      • How clever. Much better than my routine, which is to steal my husband’s horses and use those, then having my stuff on there when he needs them to spray when he is finishing cabinets or furniture. And sometimes I use a paint can 😉 Or…..

  290. LOVE it……I really like the black. I have a black bench myself. You should do more black.
    Take care and keep rolling them out!!!
    God Bless!!!!
    Addie xoxo
