This week, at The Treasured Home! January 17, 2017

Hello, good people!

Last weekend, after our Paint Your Own Piece class, on Saturday, Mr. Wonderful and I scored some great pieces…antiques begging for some paint and lots of good lovin’!

More about that, in a minute!

Right now, I have several spots available, for this Saturday’s Cabinet Painting class.  I’ll be sharing the most important tips, that will give you a fabulous “new” kitchen, without headaches, or killing your spouse!

All over the internet; Pinterest, Instagram or Google images, you’ll find all sorts of “Before and After” photos, to inspire you.

Jill, our fearless manager, transformed her oak cabinets, in time for the Holidays.

She did a beautiful job, using Selznick Grey.

Pretty remarkable, right?

Is it hard? No.  Not if you follow a few simple steps. Really!

Will you save a boat load of money? Yes!  Most kitchens can be completed, for less that $200.

Please join us!  You could have a new kitchen, just in time for your Super Bowl party! 🤛🏼 🏈

Anyway, back to furniture hoarding… I mean acquisitions.

If you love antique pine, like I love antique pine, you’ll ❤️ our new linen-press.  Louise, the linen-press.  She’s a beauty, considering her years, (late 1800’s, England)

Louise is strong and stout.  Traditionally, this piece was perfect for storing linens, napkins, sheets, blankets…you name it.  The pull-out upper shelves, made it easier to load or unload.

The lower drawers are big enough for quilts or small children. :/

Large, luscious Louise!

Next up, a Henredon dining table, large enough to seat 10 comfortably.

Not exactly a beauty shot, but this mama is massive! We refinished and darkened the stain a bit.  I felt that this was a piece that should remain traditional French provincial.  Your call!

By the way, a new Uno de 50 delivery arrived today.  Come see what’s new!  Valentine’s Day?  (I’ve been know to buy my own Valentines Day gifts!)

Thanks for being here and your continued support.

And don’t forget to sign up for our Cabinet Painting class!

    HI Barbara! I love how you named the hutch “Louise” and described “her” as “strong and stout” and “large, luscious”. Too funny! I wish I had room for her!
    Love the table…what color did you use on it?
    Thx! Keven

      Hello Keven, If you’re talking about the stained Henredon French Provencial table (mom and dad’s old table), I used General Finishe’s black gel stain with beeswax to seal it. Hope your new year is off to a good start! Hugs, Barbara

    Hi Barbara–I had so much fun at the painting class. My piece turned out fabulous. I loved the chalk paint we used. It dried quickly, but most of all I loved the wax we used, it did not remain sticky like a lot of the products do. Thanks for the class. Faye
