Modern Masters Hot List: Finishes in Review 2017

2017 has been a banner year with decorative finish projects from both professionals and DIYers alike! It started in January when designer Young Huh wrote Why You Should Reconsider Faux Finishes in Architectural Digest to more recently faux finishes being ‘In’ by Country Living. We’ve seen decorative plaster finishes featured more in online articles and on magazine covers, too. Modern Masters products have been used for many beautiful decorative paint projects this year and we’d like to share some of the hottest social shares with you.
