Hi I'm Meg and I wanted to show y'all just how easy it can be to turn an old used piece of furniture and make it beautiful again. The best feature that I love about General Finishes paint is that it is self leveling so when you have finished the piece there are virtually no brush strokes, without even sanding! I like to start with a foam brush because it is so easy to get the paint onto the furniture and achieve nice even strokes. But I also like to use my smaller standard paint brushed to get the fine details that the foam brush just cannot reach. I like the heavily distressed look, but it is not for everybody or every piece of furniture. So I like to just use a piece of sandpaper to highlight the edges and really define the details about a piece that make it unique. This is such a great product, and so easy to use you pretty much cannot go wrong. I do not want to keep this amazing paint a secret from any DIYers out there so I had to share!
