   Greetings!  I hope that this beautiful fall day finds you well!   While new treasures seem to arrive daily, our focus right now is finding fun new pieces to make your holiday home extra gorgeous.  They’ll make their debut, in time for our Vintage Holiday Market, Sunday November 1st!

Cabinet Painting Class this Saturday. Paint your kitchen cabinets now, to enjoy this holiday season!

Where do your friends and family gather, each and every time they visit?  In the kitchen, of course!       The kitchen photos above, were sent to us, by a happy homeowner, who recently painted her kitchen with our Amy Howard One-Step Paints.    Have you been looking at your oak cabinets, with disdain? Do…

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! The Catholic-guilt/workaholic in me, is the little “twerp”, sitting on my left shoulder and the sweet little fairy,…

A Customer’s Kitchen Cabinet Success Story

I love it when customers send me pictures of their success stories!    Quite a make-over, right?  There’s nothing more timeless than a white kitchen! Or, in this case Amy Howard’s Bauhaus Buff!  Bravo!  Job well done! This is a wonderful example of what you can do to transform the heart of your home, while…

Milk painting Class at Salvaged, at Lake Tahoe, this Sunday!

About a year ago, I discovered a wonderful vintage/hand-made art shop, in Tahoe City, on Lake Tahoe’s north end.      Once inside, the shop has a wonderful scent, with all the hand-made candles and soaps.  It has a calming vibe, with owners Renee and Alissa, at the helm.   I knew that this could…

Join Us for Some Paint Therapy!

Looking for a night out with the girls?  Bring a friend and join us, next week for some fun with milk paint!    Leave with this hand made wooden arrow sign, and a solid understanding of what milk paint is all about. We’ll provide everything, next Thursday night,  August 20th, 6:30-9:00 p.m., at a special rate,…

An Amazing Mirror Make-Over

It all started with this over the top, antique reproduction mirror.  Yes, another Craig’s List find! I knew that it was a prime candidate for our not-so-secret specialty finish! No, this isn’t One Step, but what good things ever come from just One Step, unless we’re talking a move away from the refrigerator, at 9…

This Week at The Treasured Home

Greetings, friends! Things are really hoppin’ at the shop!  I know you’re dying to know what’s happening, so here goes! I hit gold on Saturday, making the rounds, to estate and garage sales.  I had been looking for a cool sales counter for some time and everything I saw was massive, in size and expense…

There’s Still Room for you to Create a Milk Painted Masterpiece!

   As you probably know, we sell both chalk and milk paints, at The Treasured Home.  We teach classes, using both products, yet month after month, there’s less demand for our milk painting class, which leaves me scratching my head, in wonder. Or, is that the bed bugs? (Yes, that was a joke!)    Maybe…

Mini Changes at the Lake House

   My brother took this photo, of Lake Tahoe, on May 24th.  If you haven’t seen it in person, Lake Tahoe is a national treasure and I hope you’ll add it to your “bucket list”!   Half of the lake is in the state of Nevada and the other half is in California.   I’ve…

Dining Room Table and Chair Sale!

   I love everything about dining room and kitchen tables!  They’re the place where you sit down to enjoy a good meal, with a friend, or your whole family.  It’s a gathering place, a place to play dominoes, or do homework.  For me, setting the table and making a flower arrangement, for a special dinner…
