Free Fabric Painting Class, this Saturday!…Plus, Other News!

I hope your holidays were filled with peace and joy!  We escaped to Lake Tahoe, for a white Christmas.  (This photo was taken on Christmas morning, facing north.) This photo was taken near sunset, on Christmas, from a similar vantage point.  What a difference! By the way, we don’t normally make so many visits to…

Hello, Sunshine!, Yes, May is a couple of months from now, but I know how busy y’all are and want to make sure you pencil us in! True confessions!

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?

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…

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…

New Fabric Stenciling Class this Saturday!

Remember 1989, if you were alive then, when every respectable creative-type had grape leaves stenciled around her kitchen.  If not grape leaves, it was little French blue houses, with mauve hearts scattered between them.   Fear not, stenciling is back!      Fabric is really a great surface for stenciling.  Painter’s drop cloths are wonderful…

We’ll share some tips and tell you what works and what doesn’t. At least that’s the plan! We’re replacing all of the old hollow-core interior doors upstairs, at the…
