True Blue, Baby I Love You! Layering with Websters

Layering Paint by A to Z Custom Creations

Can I share my latest love affair with you? She’s strong, has amazing bone structure and curves in all the right places. You might remember her companion: I gave him layers of love back in August but I just couldn’t see the desk robed in those colors, so I let her hang out a little longer. It’s […]

Giving Painted Furniture a Makeover…the easy way!

Faking A Dark Wood Tone

My client, Robin, has a great eye! She found a chest with great bones but the finish didn’t quite fit her home. That happens a lot these days! People will buy painted furniture and bring it to me for a makeover. I can’t say it’s my favorite thing to do, since there is a lot of guesswork […]

Fall Wreath from Coffee Filters

C"Fall" Coffee Filter Wreath by A to Z Custom Creations

I’ve confessed before, I am a lazy seasonal decorator! I don’t go all out but I do like to add a few seasonal touches by replacing items in vignettes or tablescapes. The weather this week in Arkansas has felt like fall, so I was super motivated to get my craft on! I decided to work […]

The Joys of Life and Being Home!

Mountains of Idaho

Well, it’s my first full day back at “work”! Boy, have we had an adventure! We’ve driven over 4,000 miles in the last 9 days and beheld some of the most amazing sights! The mountains and flowing streams out west always leave me in awe, but nothing compared to the splendor of my daughter in her wedding […]

A Bag of Pistachios and Positivity

What a Bag of Pistachios Taught Me This Week!

What in the world do pistachios and being positive have to do with one another and what do either have to do with painting furniture? Well, they’re really unrelated to painted furniture and so far off my normal “DIY” posts, I almost talked myself out of typing it! This one bag of “Wonderful” Pistachios provided such insight […]

Perfect Imperfections…Let them shine!

Chippy, Layered Paint Technique by A to Z Custom Creations

Our house has been crazy for the last few weeks! School is back in session, and like so many of you, I’m struggling to adjust to the schedule changes. I’ve also been prepping for a 2 day drive with my family of six to Idaho. Our baby girl is saying “I do” {that still doesn’t seem possible} […]

Repurposed Table Leg by A to Z Custom Creations

I get excited over broken things. I find the “fix” to be very therapeutic for me! I also have a “thang” for curvy furniture legs! On or off furniture, they always seem to lure me in! I rescued this lonely leg from a trash pile a while back, knowing I would find a good use […]

Ombre Table Makeover by A to Z Custom Creations

Ahhh. I’m catching a breath. I’m holding it in and enjoying it because I know things are about to get crazy again. At this very moment though, the house is quite and I have nothing calling me to the shop. My coffee is perfection this morning so I figured I’d take advantage of all the goodness […]
