To save our environment, we must use the acrylic eggshell paint that’s water based to paint the furniture. Paint that’s water based will need fewer time to dry. Besides, this kind of paint will provide fewer noxious odors. Compared to water based furniture paint, the oil based furniture paint is smellier.

Now, start making hand painted furniture for your shabby chic room.
If you’re painting expensive or valuable furniture, make sure you practice painting on some inexpensive furniture before you make your expensive furniture becomes hand painted furniture. If you’re successful in your practice, you can start painting your valuable furniture. Before you start painting, you must understand that there are four different finishes of hand painted furniture including lacquered that’s also known as painted surfaces or previously varnished. Also there are unfinished wood and previously waxed wood finishes.
