Lacquering furniture has always been considered an arduous process. The look is fab but the amount of work it took to get a piece to that smooth perfection was left to the professionals until now....
One of the most interesting show rooms this market was Amy Howard's in Interhall.
I was able to talk to Amy for a couple of minutes in between her demonstrations of her new lacquer paint line. Amy's lacquer is a spray on process. She was there giving mini workshops on how to use this product along with her complete new paint line intros.
Amy has built her reputation on having the most beautiful finishes in the market with her own custom furniture line. Now she is sharing her secrets so you can create those fabulous finished yourself in your own home on your own pieces.

How incredible to get the chic look of thick lacquer in a spray can!
Amy's new paint line is exciting! Not only does she offer lacquers but an
entire collection of paints to achieve a multitude of finishes.
