Mixing the Old With the New

Hello everyone!  Life has been very, very busy with grandchildren, decorating, painting, and vacationing.  Loving life!  I can’t believe that I’m going to say this, I LOVE BEING IN MY 50’s!!!  It’s pretty cool :-).

I apologize for not having posted since January!  Yikes!!!! I have been so busy…. lots of projects to show you.

Here is one that I’m particularly proud of.  I have a new client who wanted me to do something with her mother’s old chairs.  The problem? Her tastes are very modern and she loves animal print.  My thought?  “How in the world am I going to pull this one off?”

Here is the before:




It was amazing how the details in this chair came out once it was painted and distressed.


My client LOVED them!

I thought they looked pretty fabulous in my dining room
up against the red walls.

Pretty exotic looking, don’t you think?

And of course I had my favorite sidekick watching me the whole time…


I hope everyone has a wonderful three day weekend.
