Refinished Incubator With An Oil Finish

I’m still trying out other finishes on pieces of furniture.  I’ve never tried an oil finish.  […]

Farmhouse Dining Room

We’ve been in our house 4 months now and I haven’t painted a single wall, until now.   So while the husband was away hunting for the week, I had asked my mom to come stay for a week so I could start a few projects.  I wanted to start with our dining room.  It will […]

Back in late December, I had posted this picture of this antique buffet on my facebook page (www.facebook.com/countrystyleaccents ).  I wanted opinions of what color to paint it.
