You guys I can't express enough how important it is properly prep your pieces of furniture before painting or staining.  I am a tad OCD with taking all of the hardware off including the hinges & more. Today I removed even the glass & holders (you'll see why soon). I know it can be time consuming & even tedious. In the long run it's just best & eventually saves time & headaches. I wrap my stuff in cling wrap & label which door they belong to... I can't stand to see painted over screws or hardware, that = laziness! You'll be happier & so will your client. #itsallinadayswork #lynnfern #lovemyjob #furnituremakeover

This sweet dresser didn't last long once the sold sign was put on it.  @thatsweettealife is part of the #craftygirlsandfurniturefriends & up on her blog is the makeover using Pure & Original paints in this color palette! It's gorgeous!
This oval coffee table looks nothing like this now. Using some of my favorite products I took this orange colored finish & transformed it.  It's up on the blog now.  Come on over to see it's beauty now.  #daddyvans #cececaldwellpaints #unicornspitgelstainandglaze #lynnfern
So today we wrapped a project that I am loving & will be sharing on the blog soon. But, as I put my girls to work helping me. They said they loved helping me & I giggled a bit & said well if you're loving it then it's not child labor I suppose. Naturally that brought on a full teaching moment to explain what that even meant. I embrace those moments that present an opportunity to teach my girls that unfortunately there are such things in this life, but they're blessed to be where they are! ❤️ #lynnfern #sayitwithcricut #cricutmade
