Let’s Talk About Paint…and More!

Greetings, from our home away from home! Not for long though.  I head back in the morning.      I feel slightly guilty, having been away from the shop for a week!  Well, maybe more than slightly!

New Life for an Antique Bed

One of my dear customers, bought this bed and dresser, at the shop, for her daughter, before I could paint it. This was one of our most challenging projects. These pieces had been neglected for some time. Mr. Wonderful worked his magic on the bed and Patti and I took it from there. This filler […]

How to Paint an Aged Finish
