Who else loves paint as much as I do? I believe it’s one of the easiest and cheapest ways to transform just about anything, from rooms to furniture to accessories.

One of my most recent projects is my Repurposed Rolling Kitchen Cart.

If you follow me on Instagram you know I’ve been working on transforming a bedroom into a video studio for Facebook lives, recipe videos and working with brands.

My favorite paint to use for the beginner (that’s me!) is always chalk paint. I have a couple great posts with tons of helpful tips.
