Today everyone is loving painted furniture. Do It Yourselfer's are chalk painting themselves into color heaven.
I have seen perfectly wonderful antique pieces turned into coats of of many colors. I am not saying I don't like this trend..I actually do, with some reservations. I like pieces which have seen "better days" being given a new lease on life. I find the creativity fascinating and inspirational. I have painted damaged and rejected tables, chairs, shelves and beds for years.
What I am not fond of, is when a perfectly good and lovely antique is given a bath in chalk paint. I love the look of old wood which has the patina of age and history layered on its surface like a fine coat of memory.
