I had a few small pieces around my house that I wanted to paint, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money on full sized products in case I wasn't very good at it. I'm still not sure if I'm very good, as I'm only half way through my first piece (only one coat of paint in the photo), but I feel pretty confident that it's going to turn out great. The free tutorials compliment this kit perfectly. I'm already planning to order a bigger tub of the Vanilla Frosting, and some other colours too. If you've never painted furniture before, get this kit and give it a try!
