I am always on the hunt for any possible solution to refinish furniture without sanding – anybody with me?! I launched into Google to see what new ideas came to my mind, and I came across Country Chic Paint and fell in love. Lets face it – I was sold just on their name. But as I read their blog I was smitten by their drive for environmental safe & VOC free paints – with their lab results to prove it!
