Chalk paint chest of drawers

Elisabeth at Artistic Expressions turned an outdated chest of drawers into a knock out statement piece with just a little elbow grease and some paint. Not only did she redo the piece and update the original hardware, she even made her own chalk paint for the project. Now that's my kinda DIY!

DIY stain with vinegar

Karyn at Kayboo Creations was determined to use the vinegar stain technique, but wasn't thrilled with her first results. She tried again (like any DIYer would) and finally got the results that she wanted with this stunning chevron side table. She shares some tips & tricks to getting the homemade stain just right, and used it on her $5 yard sale find. Love that!
