Tip Talkin’ Tuesday- Post 4

So, I got several repeat questions this past week which meant I could cheat and link up to some previous posts! Swweeeeet, I said out loud in my best Napoleon Dynamite voice! So, I poured myself a glass of sweet tea and prepared for an easy blogging session.  I spit my sweet tea out when I saw this!

7 Thousand Pinterest Pins


My “How To Repair Damaged Veneer Post” has been Pinned on Pinterest over 7 THOUSAND times?!?!?! I know…I’m a total dork! But that’s a big deal to little ole me! I am completely humbled and excited that you found the post informative! I’ll try to get more of those posts with good pics for ya! It’s hard to do alone, but I’ll try! That tutorial would have never been possible without the photography of my best buddy Shannon, who was stuck in the shop with me for the week! I bet she took a million pictures! Good job Shannon and thanks for pinnng it friends! Let’s start with that post, shall we?

Olivia {one of my favorite girl names} from Mountain Home, AR asked:

How do you know when it’s ok to paint over damaged veneer? Sometimes I see things but I am afraid to buy them because I am afraid I’ll have to remove all the veneer! 

Repairing Damaged Veneer

This post on How To Repair Damaged Veneer should tell you all you need to know, Olivia! Don’t be afraid! It’s not nearly as hard as you’ve heard ;)


The second question comes from Shawn in Little Rock. Shawn asked:

What kind of brushes do you like and how do you keep them clean? I am having trouble with clumps coming off in my paint but my brush appears clean before I start.

Shawn, your email did not reference the type of paint you use so I am going to guess it is chalk based {since that’s the way I swing, and you are asking me, wink-wink}. Before I link up to my previous post, which will tell you all about my favorite brushes and how I clean them, let me say this. It is quite possible that your brush is clean when you start and paint is drying while you are working. Some chalk based paints have additives which make them dry really fast. That can be nice but it can also stink! I’m a swish-swish painter. My brush makes that exact sound when I work! You’d probably have to be a painter to get that, but if you are like me, that may be your problem. I have experienced that with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint before. The paint would dry up on the brush, where it was not coming into contact with the furniture, and little balls of chalk would fall off  into my paint. It really didn’t affect the end result much. I’d just let it dry and scrape it off. It is super annoying though! Try to wet your brush before you begin. That may help keep the paint from drying up to quickly. Now, here’s that post! Enjoy!


The third question comes from Mariellen in Memphis, TN:

I have a booth at a local flea market and I’d love to use Websters for chalkboards. You posted a picture on your Facebook page of a chalkboard you made and it was beautiful. Can you share how you make them?

Sure I can Mariellen! Websters Chalk Paint Powder is perfect for making chalkboards and this post will tell you all my little secrets! I’m an admitted chalkboard addict and I’d love to see yours!
