Refresh Your Surroundings
Spring is officially here, and it’s the perfect time to search secondhand furniture shops for home-décor accents. Other good places to seek out surfaces are flea markets and garage sales. Check to see if your local area holds any community garage sale days. Mine does, and many people spend the entire day traveling the neighborhood looking for hidden treasures. Get together with your painting friends, hop in a car, and have a fun time searching for surfaces—you never know where that future heirloom piece will come from! You'll be surprised at the number of useful and unique items that can be found in your travels.
This issue features a variety of techniques for painting on glass. Also, chalk paint formulas are increasing in popularity and becoming more readily available. Now you can tackle those larger projects, knowing that you can find products to do the job with ease. With little to no prep required, refinishing furniture is a breeze.
