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!

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…

Meet “Blanche”, Our New Dresser!

Let me make the introductions! This is Blanche. She just completed her make-over, here at The Treasured Home. She’s Southern, as you might expect, with a name like “Blanche”. She talks with a bit of a twang. I’ve always wished I was Southern. Then, I could say things Southern women say, in that Southern way.…
