This is one of my favorite Upcycles. Converting a desk into matching nightstands.

I love to white wash wood, it can drastically change the appearance of your furniture.

Just got this badass air brush from Preval to do leather touch-ups also wanted it for inside chair legs and spraying on stencils (so stay tuned). Today I am using it for my first ever leather touch-up.
