    Well, you've done it! I am now and have been for a few months been inspired! I am a “Jack of all trades and master of none” kind of girl who loves DIY projects. That said, my paint gun came in the mail and I am now ready to take on a few of my own pieces of furniture. I was considering picking up some pieces, refinishing and selling them as a part time job beginning this summer. I see you have been doing this a while and was wondering if you would share any major considerations or downfalls to the biz that may be helpful to my decision making. THANKS!

    What a great site! Gorgeous pieces! I have a ?… I recently refinished a round, pedestal table (similar to the one above) and polyurethaned the top. Unfortunately, it has an ugly yellowish hue now. Do you use any protective coating for your pieces or do you just use paint? Thanks a ton!!
