...and here's to my wonderful father whom I admire and respect and feel like the luckiest little girl to be called his. What a great example he was to me on who to marry, how to love and how to live life well. I will always be his little girl and I love that about him (on my wedding day) :)

High Gloss and lovin it

I have been painting furniture for a year now and love it, but wanted to try a few different things to mix it up. The latest MegMade creation is done with Rust-O-Leum High Gloss White Enamel and was done with a sprayer. I wasn't sure I was going to like the sprayer, but I have been converted, at least for now.

So, here is the first high gloss and first sprayed piece. It's up for grabs, so let me know if you are interested :)







I'm digging the high gloss white, what are your thoughts??
