  4. State Fair Farmhouse Cabinet:  No country kitchen is complete without this State Fair Farmhouse Cabinet.  The antique finish on this cabinet makes it look worn and years old, even if it's brand new.  You could also use this technique to finish bookshelves and tables, if you'd like.

  7. Tropical Teal Shimmery Dresser:  Add a splash of teal to your bedroom with this Tropical Teal Shimmery Dresser.  Teal is a great bright color that matches well with several other color combinations, so it's perfect for adding just that touch of color to your living room.
