So often I see beautiful pieces painted in chalk paint, when they are in perfect shape! It saddens me, as furniture is just not made the way it used to be with solid wood.. Each piece I start I strip and sand and then see the marks, damage and decide what areas should be repaired or painted. When I uncovered the layers on this piece I was tempted to leave it half done as there were about 10 coats of paint that gave it an industrial chic feel. However, as I uncovered the tiger grain details, I had to restore back to the original!
