    I want to paint some pine bedroom furniture 4th Nov 07 at 11:23 PM
    I just want to know what the best effect would be. I want it to look like I have bought it, already painted, and not that I've just done a quick makeover on it!! I would like an antique cream (but not a distressed look - just plain). I don't want it to be glossy, but then not too matt looking either. I have 2 bedside cabinets, and 2 chest of drawers. They are very dated and I've had them for about 15 years, but I cannot afford to get new furniture.
