My mother used to refinish furniture and I remember all the steps it took. This method looks so much easier and I like the result. There are a lot of second hand shops by me so I know I can find a beat up coffee table that I can easily refinish. I like the addition of the wax at the end. Thank you.

I'm definitely going to try this out. It might be a bit of a challenge, but I'm up for it. I love upcycling, especially furniture!

I have a very odd obsession with chalk paint, so I am really excited to try this out and play around with chalk paint!

I love the concept of taking something old and making it new again! And I love the blue hue too.

Omg this looks like it came straight out of a chic magazine! I hope my version looks just as good!
