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…

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…

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 Update, from The Treasured Home

I’m back…two days in a row!  What gives?!    Well, I’m excited to say that half of the spaces available in the Vintage Market have been reserved, by some very talented artists and treasure hunters!  I’ll share more with you, as soon as I can, but I’ve been very pleased by the interest! To make…

Meet Amy Howard, at The Treasured Home!

Since we can’t all go to Memphis, Tennessee, to learn about furniture painting, from Amy Howard, she’s coming to us, in a live streaming video class, on a big screen, at The Treasured Home! I learned so much from Amy, at her studio in Memphis and will be heading back for an advanced finishes retreat,…

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…

Our First Christmas, on Hurricane Bay

As they say, Home is where the heart is. This was our first Christmas, celebrated in the home we’re restoring on Lake Tahoe. If you’re looking for beautifully finished rooms, this is not the place! Not one room is finished, but we relished the chance to spend time with our son and daughter. We sat…
