Thrift Store Buys
I visited quite a few of the area thrift stores this week in search of some hidden treasures. I found quite a few as you can see by the photo.
I will be painting all of my treasures with black paint. This will be my first attempt at prim painting on wooden furniture and accessories. Can anyone recommend the type of paint I should use, such as flat, satin, or gloss? I bought a black semi-gloss but I'm not sure that is the effect I want on items like the cutting board. My purchases include the chair, picture frames, spoon rack, cutting board, magazine rack, wooden trays, and a shelf.
The theme of my kitchen and great room are saltbox houses, so I want to try to paint some saltboxes and sheep on the wooden trays. I will keep you posted on my progress.
