Feels Like Home comes out in just over a week!! If you’ve been waiting to preorder the book until it’s a little closer to shipping day, well, we’re getting pretty close. I am so excited to get this book out into the world.
For Feels Like Home Friday, Melanie from Mango Reclaimed and Mango Paint (she is amazing) and I will be doing a furniture and paint Q&A on Instagram Live at 1:00 EST/noon CST. (That is Friday, October 1, 2021.) The Live will be recorded and I’ll link to it when it’s available if you can’t join us.
As a thank you to all of my readers and followers who have been so supportive of this book project, I am having another giveaway. This one is for the “furniture artist” and is very near and dear to me since painting and refinishing furniture was the staple of my business for over a decade. When I started writing Feels Like Home, there was absolutely no doubt that I would dedicate a chapter to furniture. Furniture dictates so many aspects of a room – the style, the functionality, the focal point. And it is a great place to add your own custom touch. It could be as simple as changing out the hardware or as involved as reupholstering a sofa. In the chapter on furniture, I share all about shopping for furniture (new and used), what to look for and what to avoid, all about different kinds of paints and finishes to use, and how to properly prep a piece of furniture. A lot of ground is covered in this chapter!
If you feel overwhelmed looking through my furniture posts on this blog (there are over 600), then this chapter is a very condensed version with all of the most important information. My hope is it will be a great resource and source of inspiration to revisit over and over again.
For the giveaway today, I’ve collected another amazing group of items for the “furniture artist” or aspiring furniture artist. (And, if you have ever painted or refinished a piece of furniture or wanted to, that’s you!)
The giveaway includes one of my favorite pinafore aprons by Linen Bee in natural linen –
A package of goodies from Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint including two 2 quart bags of Linen, two bottles of Hemp Oil, two aprons, two jars of wax, and two paintbrushes. You’ll have plenty of product to finish one huge piece or a few smaller pieces and with two brushes and two aprons, you can have a helper!
A $100 Visa gift card to spend on a piece of furniture to paint or any other materials, tools, or hardware you might need!
Such a fun collection of items, right? It will certainly help you knock out some of your projects!
To enter, just leave a comment here on this blog post letting me know about a furniture project you’re looking forward to working on. The giveaway will close Wednesday, October 6, 2021, at midnight PST. So sorry, but this giveaway is only open to readers in the US.
