Here at the Interiors to Inspire studio we love a challenge :)  We're not big fans of chemical strippers and we like to avoid hours upon hours of sanding off old finishes whenever we can.  In the video I’m creating a finish with Chalk Paint based off of a raw wood sample finish we had done for a previous project.  The client had a pine bedroom suite she wanted refinished.  Since the furniture had several layers of an unknown verathane we discussed a finish that would have a very similar feeling to it, using colors that mimic the inspiration sample but knowing the wood grain would not be a focus at all.
