Old Town Paints

I have a THING for brushes! 
my favorite paint brushes 2 Purdy 2 inch angled brush, Frenchic oval, round wax
Paint brushes, wax brushes, buffing brushes, foam brushes, artist brushes ~ you name it, I have a thing for them and have become a wee bit finicky over the years in what I choose to paint furniture.  I've learned through my own experiences that using the right brush makes all the difference in a quality finish.  Below I've listed my absolute favorite brushes that I couldn't do without.

This dresser stuck out like a sore thumb at a local thrift store and I have to admit, I almost didn't bother looking at it because it's so not my style.  At first glance, I thought it was something a dad had made for one of his little kids  The combination of baby blue and bright green was enough to make me grab for my sunglasses.

I didn't care for the extremely high gloss finish on it, but that's just me.  Retro just isn't my style - AT ALL - but it had a great price on it, so I started checking it out.  What I discovered is, it was very well made dresser.  The entire piece is well built and definitely not homemade.  The metal seal on the inside reads "Tri-Bond Furniture III".

Long story short, it came home with me.  We took a vote online for color choices and after all the votes came in, we decided on a classic white.  Check out the difference a little paint makes...

I was six years old when the original version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory arrived at Studio 28 but I'll never forget how awestruck I was when they opened the doors to the Chocolate Room.  You know the room I'm talking about, that magical room where everything is edible, trees of taffy, shrubs...

I'll never forget the sparkle in my dad's eyes when he'd open one of my handmade cards.  It meant so much to him that his little girl took the time to create something from the heart.  He told me time and time again how they were far better than any other gift that could be...
