I know my neighbor will laugh when she reads I called her a pro at antiquing furniture. But, she is! She has been doing it for years, multiple pieces each week for a local antique shop. I sooo wanted to learn. She not only taught me, but let me use her stuff. Old fashioned milk paint. Sand here. Wax like this. Buff like that. All these tricks she showed me. Let me tell you, I am learning to be a pro too. And I'm hooked. I want to paint EVERYTHING in our house this way now. I'm thankful for my teacher, Nam. My husband, on the other hand, may be just a bit overwhelmed when I tell him all that I must paint now.
