“Ever wish for the thick, rich, hard-high-gloss finish of actual lacquer on a piece of furniture, frame or home décor? Well now all you have to do is spray it on- and a pale, washy, faded piece can transform itself to an edgy, chic high-fashion statement piece set in lacquer. This spray-on wonder is an exclusive product to Amy Howard and is not available anywhere else; it can change the life of any furniture piece like no other product can.”
