About me

Business Card 2

I am a retired teacher who has gone from writing a blog about teaching to one about furniture.  I love looking at and writing about furniture styles.  I am also an advocate of Upcycling-the whole notion of not wasting well-made furniture and relegating it to landfill or someone’s basement.  And finally, I love Annie Sloan chalk paint and the amazing transformations that can be made with it.

  1. I am so happy to find this blog. I am also retired and have taken up refinishing with a passion. And i too, am facing the dilemna of how to sell the finished product. I currenly use a consignment shop. I have explored Etsy and also craigslist and kijijii but so far they dont seem to get the results. I have started with MMS just this weekend. A change from staining . Quite a learning experience. Hope we can share some ides in the future.

  2. I have english yellow and do tend to find it very bright. I like it but for outdoor furniture or something for the lounge room. I like what you’ve done with it here by mixing it with old white. I might have to give it a try.

  3. I love the wallpappered draws its gorgeous.. I have lined the inside before but never the outside.. Looks fab so would love to try this out one time 🙂
