This tutorial goes into detail on the process I use for painting my style of painted furniture. It cover everything from finding furniture, the initial prep work, the painting process to the final clear coat. This is information that I've spent years refining and will save you many hours of mistakes and heartache. This includes the names of the products I use as well as links to my suppliers and the techniques that I use. Videos too! You will also be able to ask me questions that you may have via email or Etsy convo for 30 days from the date of purchase of the tutorial. I will answer anything I can! You've got my ear!
This does not cover using chalk paint. As you can see from my work, I'm not a chalk paint user- far from it!
I should note, the products I use are available in the United States. I'm not sure of their availability in other countries. I can make suggestions as to what qualities to look for if you can't find the specific products where you live. Talk to me- I'm here to help!
Thank you for sharing your hard earned knowledge. It is funny how some people don't want to share their trade secrets. No one is going to do it as well as you, and I am fortunate to be able to learn from the best! Will post a picture when my mosaic table is finished!

Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.
Payment is due before the piece will be shipped. (well, that makes sense...)
If the listing is for a "Deposit" on a custom order, progress will not begin until the deposit payment has been made. (pretty self-explanatory, don't you think)
Due to limited space in my studio I cannot 'store' unpaid pieces. If payment is not received for the deposit or a completed custom order within 30 days of notification of the "Deposit Listing, or the "Final Payment Listing", I will assume that the project or piece has been abandoned. Unless prior arrangements have been made, I will dispose, donate, or sell the piece at my discretion. No refunds will be given for payments already made unless by prior agreement. (Don't leave me hanging!)
Custom orders cannot be cancelled once painting has started. Color and design changes should be brought to my attention at the time of the first "update" report. (I'll keep you posted on progress! Don't worry!)
