How to Care for Your Newly Chalk Painted Piece of Furniture

So you have bought a piece of chalk painted furniture or having painted it yourself, you are now thinking, how on earth do I keep it clean?!  If you have painted it, you will have most likely spent hours and hours making it look absolutely stunning and even though it has that shabby chic, distressed look, you don't want it covered in little people's messy fingers, discarded food or water marks.  First thing first after you have finished painting, you will need to make sure the piece is sealed, either with wax or a water soluble varnish (and oil based one will...

How to upcycle and paint a plastic playhouse with Everlong Paint

So, the above image was posted on our Facebook and Instagram pages and was a massive hit with everyone and has become our most popular post!

This little plastic house is the kid's favorite toy in the garden, they loves to put toys in it and have a tea party or spray it with water!  Despite them loving it, I hate the way...
