People always ask me where I find my furniture pieces.  Truth is, I have very little time to hunt for furniture and nine times out of ten, I stumble upon it at the most random of times.  I scored this great piece while out of state for a hockey tournament.  The price was so good, I actually bought it then drove back two days later to load it up and take it back to Grand Rapids.

Yes, I paint mahogany.  I paint oak.  I paint all sorts of wood furniture so if you're an avid lover of all wood furniture being stained to accentuate all the grain, this probably isn't a read for you.

I have a crush on antique highboys.  Seriously, I'm drawn to them; they like suck me in and say "buy me, buyyyyyy me"..  So when I stumbled upon this one recently at Changing Thymes, it wanted to go home with me.  It's not that I wanted it, I needed it.

Changing Thymes on Wilson is one of the locations where I sell my paint and when I go in to stock my inventory, I usually go out the door with something else from another vendor.
