No matter how far away I am, I still notice the painted furniture!

This Week at The Treasured Home

Well, there’s a lot going on, at The (bigger, badder) Treasured Home!

First of all, check out the wall-o-paint!  I found this rack last weekend, while out scavenging, and it is perfect, for displaying my Amy Howard One-Step color boards!  I don’t know what it was used for in its previous life, but for $42.00, I’m happy!!

Check out our expanded work shop and class space!  Mr. Wonderful completed the third rolling work table last week. The top is  made of butcher block, that I painted with MMS milk paint, in the color “Trophy”. (That’s Diane in the picture, working hard!)

You may have noticed this bamboo shelf, in the shop before.

Knowing that I was bringing in some linens and placemats, I decided to spruce the shelf up, with Amy Howard’s black spray lacquer.

It turned out great and I love the new tea towels and place mats.

The 4×6″ burlap bags are new, too! Fifty cents each. Great for wrapping silver wear, party favors, or you name it!

Patti directed me to a garage sale on Saturday, where I found this frame. It was pretty sad, painted black. So after a coat of One Step, gold leaf and dark wax, we now have a masterpiece on our hands!
