The Power Of Paint-Painting Resin Furniture

Take a four piece, ornate bedroom set, a few heartbreaking life moments and two weeks of painting with the color “In Deep Thought” and what do you get.

Mental clarity.

Focus.

Appreciation.

A tone right arm and calluses on your hand to remind you of the time God slowed you down!

The last few months have been full of ups and downs for me! I’ve watched my mother struggle with medical issues. Friends who are separated from me by many miles battle internal struggles and grief.  One of my best friends was diagnosed with breast cancer and started treatment this month. We also said goodbye to our sweet boxer, Abbey, who we’ve watched decline in health for the past year. Now, I’ve always been a fixer! It pains me to not have a solution and the feeling of helplessness is one I don’t deal with well. I’ve felt totally helpless in all these situations. Kim could not have possibly known the therapy her color choice would give me! She didn’t know the off white shade she chose has less titanium dioxide than a more pure white and therefore would require more coats to cover. She didn’t know the ornate details would require four, thin {hand painted} coats which would keep me “In Deep Thought” for hours on end. I’m pretty sure God did though! I don’t know about you  but I get so busy in life, I forget to stop and just appreciate the blessings around me. I was forced to slow down and do just that while painting this furniture. I spent hours and hours reflecting on the joys in my life instead of the sorrows. I realized I can’t change a thing about the situations around me but I can be a source of support, compassion and encouragement.

I gained a focus for my future as far as work is concerned too. This job is so much more than painting. It’s marketing, social media, accounting, and the list goes on. I work non stop every day. I spent a lot of time thinking about where all this work was leading me. I’m happy to say I gained clear insight as to what I should be doing and I’m so excited to get focused!

Yes, I complained a few times about this project along the way. My body ached in places I forgot I had muscles and after figuring the time invested, my monetary profit was nothing to celebrate. I tell you what though, I’ll take the life lesson over the the cash any day of the week!

You know that saying, “It’s not how you start, but how you finish”? That comes to mind every time I find furniture like this!

    You brought tears to my eyes. What a beautiful post! When you posted this set in the “Pick Your Paint”, I was immediately drawn to it because I knew what the transformation could be. This is beyond that expectation!! The set was on my mind and heart for several days and I just knew that I would regret it if I didn’t make it mine. Little did I know that we both needed this magic. I can’t thank you enough for all your great work. Your friends and family will be in my thoughts. See you soon for pickup!
