Whether she’s refinishing castoffs or painting raw wood, Marcia has a knack for making small alterations to pieces that add old-fashioned character.

For instance, she completely changed the look of a jewelry box by removing the small pulls on the drawers. ‘1 cut the tops of old clothespins offT she explains, and drilled enough so I could put them in the hole and glue them!’ With a coat of brown paint, the jewelry box now looks like an apothecary and graces the front entry.
Color, of course, is key in changing the look of furniture. I have had paint made to specifically what color I want, Marcia says. And, I’ve taken a heat gun to the paint when it’s dried and curdled it so it bubbles up. Then you can leave it on or sand it off. I’ll put a color underneath, and then when I curdle it, the base color shows through. I have so much fun doing that kind of thing!
