This Week at The Treasured Home

Greetings! We’re getting down to the home stretch! In just three months, Jill and I will head for the south of France, with a small group of women.  Our task, will be to fill a container with old French treasures.  This is the trip I’ve dreamed of!  It will be Jill’s first trip to Europe…

Upcoming Classes, Including a New Project Class!

Hello!  Have you gotten this month’s stash of furniture catalogs? Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Ballards…the list goes on.  They are all still showing painted furniture.  It’s been popular for years now! I look at their prices though and know why so many of us are restoring our own well made vintage and antique, real wood pieces, for…

Save the Date!

Yes, I know it’s over a month away, but I also know how you travel at the “speed of sound”, so please pencil our next Vintage Market, on to your calendar. We’re all working hard to stock up on new treasures and are praying for a sunny day! You can also find our Classes posted, for March 26th, resuming in May,…

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…

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…

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 Arrivals!

Greetings! I hope your week is off to a superb start!   The shop got some deep cleaning, by “yours truly”, in preparation for Google photographers, taking a virtual tour of the shop, this morning. With two Classes this week, it won’t last for long! Here’s what we’ve been up to, this past week…    A dear…

News from The Treasured Home

Greetings! I hope you’re doing well, this Wednesday! If you have admired this beautiful, antique beveled mirror, the marble topped console table, or Patti’s two stunning antique chairs, great news! They’ve all had their price tags trimmed substantially! Speaking of Patti, she just joined the ranks of Bionic Women! Today, she had knee replacement surgery…

Updating a Brick Fireplace for Less Than $20!

Well, hello there! Today, I thought I would give you a peek inside the new Tahoe house! Remember, I told you about the curse of wallpaper, from the 80’s? Well, here’s a shot of the wallpaper, in the largest bedroom, upstairs. But, let’s forget about the rolls and rolls of wallpaper that need to be…
