To Chalk Paint or Not?
Ahhh, the glories of chalk painting and distressing already-vintage wood. I decided NOT to purchase brand new bedroom furniture after becoming addicted to all the shabby chic personal business women in the Nashville area. But something inside of me just couldn't handle purchasing from them either--I could never shake the small, inner voice telling me, "I can do that myself."
So, I began youtubing the heck out of every tutorial I could find for distressing furniture, dealing with chalk paint, and painting cottage chic-style. I had so much fun learning and making things that I bought one too many pieces of furniture and didn't have enough space to put them at home! And, the idea of a new business was born.
