Easy Makeover...



Old furniture can be turned into something new with a little imagination!....I painted this armoire for a client...I started with bead board wallpaper and hung it on the doors....I then painted it black and stenciled it with gold paint...And finished off with a little distressing....Get your imagination thinking about what you can do with that old piece of furniture or decor....Love to you~ Meme

Gorgeous, Meme! I've been meaning to try that beadboard wallpaper. I've got a few spots that I think it would be great on.

You did a marvelous job!

How blessed you are to be able to decorate for a living. Though our tastes are quite different, I adore everything you have shown. Eventhough I choose prim for our home, I can appreciate something well done no matter what style. That little girl's room was wonderful. I can understand your feelings after your first project! I have helped several friends decorate and redesign rooms, and when the room was done, it was sad for me too.

I know...I have gotten good at being able to walk away now...But in the beginning it was hard...I love my job and I love helping my friends and family...It's rewarding to me to be able to use the talent God gave me to make people enjoy their homes...
