I love the lines of brass chandeliers but I have to admit, I'm not a fan of brass.   I do however LOVE the look of Venetian Bronze and old world finishes.   This was the very first chandelier I ever transformed. The European paint finish we create on brass chandeliers...

In the midst of this long cold winter, Cathy and I were invited to be one of the featured speakers at West Michigan's Women's Expo. We immediately started preparing for it.  I was panicked about how we were going to pull something of this magnitude together in such a short amount...

When the Ellis Collection from American Paint Company arrived, I couldn't wait to get my hands on them.  Peacock, Limoges, Sackcloth, Crushed Tea, Cannonball and Cameo just to name a few are flying off the shelves every day but there is one color that might be overlooked and it's one...

I'm super excited to share with all of you, my favorite piece to date!

Anyone who knows me, knows I’m about as scattered as they come.  I drive myself bonkers on most days because my mind is always going in a million different directions.  I’m REALLY good at starting projects and can multi-task with the best of them, problem is… I’m HORRIBLE at getting it all finished.  Maybe I fuss with stuff too much and maybe if I didn’t have so many things to work on all at once, I could do better.

This past fall, we lost our grandmother and inherited several pieces of furniture.  Cathy, aloong with my aunt and uncle spent a grueling afternoon in a horrible snow storm moving everything out of her place then hauled it all across town in an open bed trailer to our new Shizzle...

This petite French buffet was painted for our Shizzle Design office but we sold a couple large pieces at Not So Shabby and had to fill the void.  So much for decorating our own place; everything else takes priority.   I started out as I always do by giving her a good...

It’s been a cold snowy winter in our neck of the woods with temperatures and wind chills in the negatives.  With a blizzard in tomorrow’s forecast, I’m looking forward to the lazy hazy days of summer. I picked up these drawer pulls for another dresser but ended up using them on a...

My sister and I both used to dread waxing furniture when we first started painting furniture especially when using dark wax.  We spent over a year trying different brands and experimenting with different methods, techniques and suggestions with little improvement.  I contacted several manufacturers and stockists try and figure out...
