Bedroom Nook Chairs

I wanted to share with you a couple of chairs I recently finished for a client. These two chairs were positioned in a sitting area in her master bedroom. The chairs were in perfect condition, had beautiful curvy lines but the color just didn't do it for the room or her modern farmhouse look. Before… Continue reading Bedroom Nook Chairs

Brushed Denim Slipcovers

Stacked on top of each other in the back corner of a garage and saved for another house, another time and another space, these two arm chairs were ready for a fresh and classic update. The very sturdy original chairs were upholstered in a gold paisley fabric that was thread barren on the arms. They… Continue reading Brushed Denim Slipcovers

Pretty Parsons

We all have it (or had it)...the gold and maroon furniture. Though these colors still can have a place in our homes, the trend tends to be towards colors and textures that are more natural looking, in subtle tones such as the muted tans, creams and blues. If you find yourself painting your rooms with… Continue reading Pretty Parsons

It's 2020! I woke up to this beautiful sunrise at the lake on New Year's Day and couldn't help but marvel at this beautiful life and what the past decade has brought us...graduations, weddings, grandchildren, career and location changes, challenges and opportunities, love and loss. This new year and decade has such a nice ring… Continue reading FOCUS

She wanted a new casual look and definitely liked the idea of washing the covers to keep them fresh and clean. Before pictures....Ethan Allan… Continue reading Bull Denim Slipcovers

Into the light…a master bath makeover

When we bought our lake house three years ago, the master bathroom was definitely a room that I was anxious to make some changes to. What initially seemed like a sophisticated master bath soon felt like walking into a dark heavy space with the dark wood shades, brown curtain panels, brown tiled shower, dark wood… Continue reading Into the light…a master bath makeover

Connections

This week I had the opportunity to attend the Custom Workroom Conference in Concord, NC. One of the biggest challenges you can face as a new workroom in this field is training and support. There was a time when workrooms did not necessarily want to share tips and tricks in fear that they would be… Continue reading Connections

Wild Update

When I picked up this rocker chair from my client's house to begin work on it, a sweet little girl was curiously laying on it in the hallway where it waited for me to pick up. She told it me it used to be hers when she was a baby (I think she is about… Continue reading Wild Update
