Chippy Goodness

The more distressed the better. Especially with used furniture. There's no better way of hiding the flaws of used furniture than adding distressing! In fact, adding a touch of distressing makes a piece of furniture go from looking cheap to chic!

Today, I was feeling extra chippy. I had five pieces of furniture scattered around my back and front yards and was working on all of them simultaneously.

My favorite of the finished pieces is this super cute children's chair that I picked up from New Unto Others just last night.

I also painted a baby bassinet that I've been storing for months.
