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…

Sprucing Up Our Guest/Son’s Room

Greetings! With my efforts focused on the Tahoe renovation and the shop, I haven’t had much of a chance to give our home, here in town, some love.  Last week, I found some time on my day off, to spruce up my son’s room. Guess where I shopped?  Yep, you guessed it!  If ever you…

Stenciling Fabric Drapes

A few years ago, I discovered the versatility of painter’s drop cloths.  They make great slip covers and curtains, just for starters.  When the shop was ready to open, I stitched a taupe velvet, to the bottom of a drop cloth and hung it as a room divider.  Got lots of “oohs and aah’s” on…

What’s New at The Treasured Home…

It seems like I’ve been playing “catch-up” since returning from Round Top, last week!     I couldn’t resist bringing in these fun unisex t-shirts, especially since 10% of the company’s profits are going towards research for Muscular Sclorosis.  They should be for sale in our on-line shop soon!    Did I tell you about…

Travels to Round Top

OK, friends.  I’m back and had the time of my life!    Yes, Round Top draws quite a crowd and I’m so glad we were part of it all!  I had been talking about going to this bi-annual antique shopping extravaganza, for years.  It was about time!      Five of us, (three are shop…

Another Antique Vanity and More News!

Hello Treasured Friends!  In February, we were fortunate to sell a record number of furniture pieces!  We shed a tear or two, as they went to new homes! But, we now have room to display a couple of new pieces, like this beautiful vanity. We gilded the drawer fronts and moldings with silver leaf.  We…

Milk Paint Adventures and Other News

By now, I hope you have all met Jill.  Here she is, working on our latest conquest! This vanity, that could double as a desk, if you like gazing at yourself in the mirror, has been appropriately named, Atlanta. Believe it or not, this is the vanity Mr. Wonderful’s mother, Atlanta, sat at each day.…

Milk Paint Monday

Way back before Christmas, Mr. Wonderful surprised me with this Craig’s list find. How sweet was that? He knows I love curves and turns, and knew I would love this table and 4 chairs! The table even has a leaf! Of all the dining room tables I’ve found, none ever had their leaf(s)! Can you…

Before and After, Using Gesso

I was so lucky to get my hands on this table! What a treat! The Furniture Angels are being very kind to me! I knew that this would be the perfect piece to use gesso on. As is usually often the case, I neglected to take a “before” picture of this little treasure. This photo…
