Good morning all! It’s not every day that I write two posts in one morning! Today is different because I wanted to make you aware of a design contest going on right now hosted by General Finishes.

If you think the two pieces I entered warrant your vote, please vote for them by clicking on each image. You’ll be taken to the entry page where you can cast your vote! Thanks so much to my loyal followers of this blog.

If you haven’t yet tried General Finishes Milk paint, I would highly recommend it! It adheres to almost any surface without sanding and prep and is super smooth. To achieve a smooth finished look, I applied the paint with a brush in some areas and used a 6″ foam roller for the flat areas. The top coat was painted on and dried to a smooth finish.
