Grab any old piece of furniture (mine was being loaded onto my hubby's truck headed for goodwill when I spotted it & said waaaaait!!) whew... rescued it in the nick of time :)
Dust the cobwebs off & Slap a coat of paint on it...any leftover paint will work beautifully :)
Now... Randomly sand some edges & in various spots on the top... There's no rhyme or reason just have fun & go for it :)
Now very lightly dip a sponge or rag in a tiny bit of wood stain and rub it on the places u sanded and around the edges of the furniture and in any cracks u might see...then wipe it off..
U might hit it one more time with a light sanding.. Or maybe not....now....put it in a special place...
Add a few nice decorations and ... VIOLA. !! Enjoy the compliments you're going to get cuz ... You are AmAziNg !!! :)
