From garage sale to gorgeous!

This sideboard I picked up on my way home from the American Paint Company retailer training we had in Pincher Creek with the wonderful people of Funked Up, my American Paint Company distributors.

I think all of you have the same problem as me.  I cannot come straight home.  Somehow my van always stops at garage sales, and thrift stores and that’s where I found this great sideboard.
On the top of the sideboard and on the hardware, I used Shingle on the roof and I used Voyage for the body of my sideboard.  To finish the sideboard, I used clear wax mixed with Home Plate, creating a white wax.  This is a technique we learned at retailer training.

Isn’t it great to use a technique you learned right away!

Completed sideboard


As usual this paint is a breeze to use.  This time I used a foamy roller to apply the paint.  Its easy to use and the wax with the paint mixed in shows up really well.
