I was thinking about my very first paint project and how scared I was when I was painting it. I didn't know the first thing about shabby or chic and had no clue how to distress a piece of furniture. I thought distressing was standing there and yelling loudly at the furniture and making snide comments to it. I called my brother and asked him for help because at this point yelling wasn't working and neither me or my fiance knew what to do. He explained how to paint the hutch step by step and after many days of sanding........ drips....... cursing....... sanding some more........... painting............ more cursing...........here is what she ended up looking like.
I fell in love with her and kind of regret selling her since she was my first. What was your first project? I would love for you guys to send me some photos and tell me your story.
