Amy Howard One Step Paint

****Disclaimer: I received compensation and or products for this post, but all the opinions and content are my own.*****

Let me start out by saying I LOVE new products. I will try anything that has to do with paint, upholstery, or crafts. I Use what I like, not what everyone else uses. So If I like a product I am going to use it. I use multiple different paints for furniture and I love playing with new finishes and techniques. The newest one I have fallen in love with is Amy Howard Home One Step Paint. No priming, sanding, or waxing involved, unless you want to add a dark wax to age it.  It's so nice to skip all that timely prep work. 

When I opened it, it had to be stirred for a few minutes, but after that it was ready to go!!. I love grays, so it was the perfect color. I had this bookshelf that was previously painted coral, but I wanted something more neutral. Gray fits into more color schemes and styles then coral does, although it's a beautiful color.

I put two coats of paint on, and I LOVED the color. The paint took no time at all to dry and felt nice after it did dry. I am a touchy geeky kinda blogger, so I dislike paint that is gritty. Although the color looked great I felt it needed a lil something extra.
 I added some stripes in the back beadboard by using the dark wax. It was pretty easy to use as well. I couldn't get a great picture of how it looked though. I'm still working on my photography skills!!

I took this last picture with my I phone so it is not the best quality, but you can get a good idea of how it looks in my space. Hopefully it will find a new home in someones house soon. 

Have you ever used Amy Howard before?  What did you like about it?
