Someone recently commented about not liking chalk paint and only liking the original wood. I tried to go back and find the exact comment that come in but I can’t find it. I had thought it came through email but I looked there and it couldn’t be found.

I am giving the comment the benefit of the doubt. I am guessing that they don’t really know me or the house I live in. For those of you who didn’t follow along with our journey of buying a foreclosure house and fixing it, I suggest going back and reading this blog post explaining the main reason we bought out house….WOODWORK.
