Use metallic gold paint to transform furniture quickly and easily. This foyer mirror gets a quick makeover with an applique, gold chalk paint and dark wax.

After over a decade of our dark wood furniture, I have been hankering for a change.

After I lightened the top of this wood foyer table, it seemed right to change up this dark wood mirror.

Give furniture a new look with this simple method for stripping a table top. I’m sharing the best way I have found for lightening dark wood furniture (with no sanding necessary!)

Easily install peel and stick wallpaper to add beauty and personality to your space on a budget.
