You know the saying, “They just don’t make things like they used to anymore.”? That saying is so true, especially when it comes to wood furniture. So many pieces today are made with nothing more than sawdust and glue….and after a move or two, they just fall apart. With so many great quality, solid wood pieces readily available at Next Time Around, we thought we’d share some of our paint tips and teach YOU how to transform that Diamond in the rough into that one-of-a-kind gem.

We are the Tri-Cities Retailer of Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint and Fusion Mineral Paint and we teach all our Paint Classes using these AMAZING, Canadian-Made, Non-Toxic Paints that are suitable for both interior and exterior applications.
