Bringing color into my home always makes me smile. I’ve realized, as we’ve moved over and over into different places each with odd quirks and flaws, that I may not be the This Old House gal I used to think I was. I think I’m more of a “This Old Kitchen Table” lady. I’m too impatient to deal with old pipes and plaster walls, and I hate creaky floors. Flea market or better yet… FREECYCLE furniture though? Heaven! A coat of milk paint and some heavy paste wax goes a long way towards making my battered old friends feel cheery again, and the history of the pieces I’ve aquired feels warm and safe. Maybe if I don’t win this giveaway, you will, and you’ll treasure a heap of scuffed wood the way I do. Grab the kids and start painting!
