Mother’s Day is this weekend and it’s very popular right now as a do-it-yourself project to refinish an old or worn piece of furniture or decorative item. Generally, it’s a time-consuming, messy task to prep the furniture for new paint, but this Ace Hardware Project of The Week makes it easy to restore a gift for mom this Mother’s Day.
