Gloss-Off by Krud Kutter. I found it at Sherwin Williams and the best part is it smells like soap. No strong odor, the store said they use it in schools because it has no odor and is so safe. Not having to sand is especially wonderful when you're painting something with curvy legs or embellishments.
Monogram primitive wall decoration. Barnwood frame, glass removed. Gingham scrapbook paper, rusty chicken wire, and then a wood craft-store letter, sanded, painted white, then wood-stained. Screwed letter to back of frame, which also holds chicken wire and scrapbook paper to the back of the frame. Tied a big burlap bow through the chicken wire, put the whole thing back in the frame, and voilà!
