My Mom's Remodel Progress


 My Mom has been doing a complete overhaul on her home for the last few months, it is looking beautiful!  I took a few pictures of it this afternoon to share with you.  


Her Friend, Dave, with Liberty Home Remodeling has been helping her and he has done an amazing job.  He built this arch for her and added all this beautiful molding.  Imagine for a minute this opening going all the way to the ceiling, well it used to, he closed it in from the ceiling and created this amazing focal point for these 2 rooms.  
His craftsmanship is superb, he has taught me so many new things.

The Perfect Shade of Yellow


One of my favorite parts of doing custom orders is pushing me to think outside of the box.  I often feel like I get stuck in a rut.  I find a few colors I love and paint piece after piece the same color, sometimes it is nice at times broaden the horizon.  

When I picked up these pieces from my customer she told me she wanted a yellow, that wasn't too yellow or too gold.  So the hunt began for the perfect shade of yellow.  

And here it is.....Whole Grain by Valspar


I slightly distressed these pieces.  Whenever I distress I always try to figure out where a piece will take the most wear and tear and start the distressing there.  I always distress edges and corners.  


This piece also has a brown glaze on it and is topped off with a satin clear coat.  





I love the fun details of these pieces, the new color and glaze really help it stand out!

Refinished Blue Dresser....

One of my good friends brought me this dresser to be refinished, she was contemplating giving it to the local thrift store but decided to have it refinished instead.  I think she made the right decision, don't you?  This piece is stunning, not to mention it is solid oak and in great condition.

Old Nightstand, New Life

I have a cute helper, Ellie, who comes once a week to sand, take things apart, clean, or whatever I need her to do.  She is always so happy and cheerful, I look forward to working with her.  When her mom called looking for a nightstand to give her for her birthday as a surprise I had just the right piece. 



When I picked up this nightstand it was missing a drawer, but it is hard to come by wood nightstands so I took it anyway.  As you can see this piece was a little dated, but that is an easy fix, all it needed was......

Custom Hutches

As I think back over all the furniture I have painted the first pieces that come to mind are always my hutches.  Each one is so unique and yet they are all so beautiful.  There is so much time put into a hutch to make it look just right, who would think it would take an hour just to take it apart...and that is if my kids leave me alone :)   

Needless to say, I am a sucker for hutches. As you can imagine when I had the chance to buy this one I couldn't pass it up. This is a beautiful very nice solid piece of furniture.  Before I just do what I want to do with it, which is pink and cream, I am putting it up for a custom job.  Which means you get to pick how you want it finished!!

It would be perfect for a little girls room, a dining room or any other small space. This is not your average oversized hutch. Here are the measurements. The lower section measured from the bottom of the legs: L×W×D -- 28 × 47 3/8 × 16 1/2. The top portion is 42 1/2 × 45 × 13 1/2. Please leave a comment or send me a message for more details.

My Etsy Store is FINALLY up!!!



For awhile now I have been designing some fun pillows and accessories and I am happy to say my Etsy store is finally up and running!!

I do love being a mom of 3 BUT sometimes {more often than not} I need to run wild with my ideas and let all that creative energy out.

I am in love with burlap right now, I love the texture it adds to any setting.  It is so versatile as well, it can be dressed up or dressed down and so you will notice I have tired burlap into almost everything in my shop...so if you are a burlap lover too...you better stop by and check it out.


Here is a little peek for you.....at my new DECOR STORE!!
