Finding my way back

For the first time in over a year, I'm thrilled to be creating again.  I lost my passion for painting this past year between the divorce, my diagnosis of cancer, major surgery, long recovery and almost losing our mom to an unexpected heart block.    After spending months in physical therapy and basic survival mode, I'm finally climbing out of the haze.  The fog is clearing and I can see hope for a better tomorrow.  Painting furniture is therapeutic, having lost that lust was like losing part of my inner soul and I'm so thankful it's starting to come back.   I tried the Frenchic for the first time when I returned to work after surgery.  Cathy had raved about it for months and it didn't take long for me to understand why.  Frenchic is absolutely dreamy and just what I needed to spark my passion for painting again.  0111

After taking the U.K. and Europe by storm, Frenchic Furniture Paint® has spread its wings, and it is now available here in the U.S.!

It didn't really show up on this luxurious cruise ship like this, but it certainly is a luxurious paint!  We proudly jumped on board as soon as Frenchic started being made and distributed in the U.S.!Frenchic Furniture Paint - Cruise Ship - Best paint in the world

We're always trying new eco-friendly products, but I haven't been this excited about a new paint - like, ever!

I found this antique bow front dresser two years ago during a trip to one of my favorite places, Traverse City, Michigan.  I usually  bi-pass pieces that need a lot of work and this one was definitely in need of some TLC, but I knew there was a hidden gem waiting to be discovered.  Sad part is, every time I looked at it, I bi-passed it for another piece that didn't need any repairs.  It sat in our workshop for so long, I actually listed it for $45 and when it didn't sell for that I thought forget it.  The pulls are worth more than that alone.  I had just returned to work after my surgery and I was on a mission.

Don't fight the Character, Embrace it!

It was love at first sight when I spotted this piece at a local thrift shop.  Just look at her fabulous detail! I could see the potential for new life but I wanted to give her some function as well since the original stereo was missing.  We took it to DeVos Place in Grand Rapids,...
