This week, at the shop.

Greetings, lovebirds!, This small scale antique buffet was updated recently, with Amy Howard’s One Step Paint, in a wonderful color called Brook’s Grey. Yeah, I know that it doesn’t look grey at all, so don’t shoot the messenger.  Great color, though, with a black glaze on top. By the way, the cow hide rug is […]

Milk painting Class at Salvaged, at Lake Tahoe, this Sunday!

About a year ago, I discovered a wonderful vintage/hand-made art shop, in Tahoe City, on Lake Tahoe’s north end.      Once inside, the shop has a wonderful scent, with all the hand-made candles and soaps.  It has a calming vibe, with owners Renee and Alissa, at the helm.   I knew that this could […]

There’s Still Room for you to Create a Milk Painted Masterpiece!

   As you probably know, we sell both chalk and milk paints, at The Treasured Home.  We teach classes, using both products, yet month after month, there’s less demand for our milk painting class, which leaves me scratching my head, in wonder. Or, is that the bed bugs? (Yes, that was a joke!)    Maybe […]

Dining Room Table and Chair Sale!

   I love everything about dining room and kitchen tables!  They’re the place where you sit down to enjoy a good meal, with a friend, or your whole family.  It’s a gathering place, a place to play dominoes, or do homework.  For me, setting the table and making a flower arrangement, for a special dinner […]

Hello Treasured Friends!  In February, we were fortunate to sell a record number of furniture pieces!  We shed a tear or two, as they went to new homes! But, we now have room to display a couple of new pieces, like this beautiful vanity. We gilded the drawer fronts and moldings with silver leaf.  We […]
