How to Paint Furniture in Layers for a Unique Look
This is a story about a vintage accent cabinet that I certainly didn’t need but I couldn’t resist the ornate details. Those ornate details look amazing painted in layers. I have to laugh because there are so many pieces of vintage furniture in my inventory to choose from as it is, I need another like I need a hole in my head. But it was as if I couldn’t control my truck as it somehow drove towards the local Goodwill. Why am I heading here? This will lead to nothing but trouble. I don’t NEED any more furniture. There is an entire storage unit to pick from if I could only manage to turn the truck around and head in the opposite direction.

How to Add a Masculine Touch to an Old Dresser
To some, this may just be a navy blue dresser, but to one man, it may be more. A step in a new direction, so to speak. You see, sometimes a man loves a woman and after a lifetime together one of them passes away. It’s sad, it’s lonely and it eventually happens to all of us. It’s something we don’t talk about or look forward to but it is life. Often the one left behind is left to pick up the pieces and has to figure out how to go on without their other half. Possibly updating or replacing the bedroom furniture is just a small step in moving on.
