This Week at The Treasured Home March 26, 2014

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!!

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!

How about a close-up?

By the way, mark your calendars, for our Spring Party! Thursday, May 15th, 6-9 pm. We’ll be featuring the art of local artist, Michelle Andres, while local vintners, The Wreckless Blenders pour their fab wines, and talk vino with the guys. Back by popular demand, palm reader-to-the-stars, Anna Esparza will be on hand! If rumors are true, Mr. Wonderful will be smoking beef, which is one of his favorite things to do! Please join us!

    Looks great! Wish I could come rather than blog stalk, but FL is quite a ways away from CA. Sounds like a fabulous party. BTW I WANT one of those rolling work tables. Mr. Wonderful needs to give a tute on those!

    I just came across this site whilst searching for vintage furnishings. I felt I had to comment on what a fine job you have done with the picture frame. I could use a craftswoman like you in my workshop. Well Done.
