soon to be transformed...

LOOK at all the work i have ahead of me! i have recently been acquiring furniture and such to paint and sell. up till now i have just let work come to me little by little. but now I'm ready to get serious about what i love-decorative painting and furniture makeovers! i'll be advertising on Craig's list for now (cuz it's free) and I'll be looking into creating a website for my finished pieces and maybe some unfinished ones, so clients can choose their own finish. i will also offer services to make over YOUR existing pieces. i am very excited and nervous about this new venture in my life and i hope i can build a successful business that will bring joy to people with something as simple as a perfectly painted table or dresser. i also want to do this for my family and our financial NEED to get out of debt!!! so any prayers are appreciated! and this is just the tip of the iceburg of what i have to paint. so excited to create! i hope this works! "i can do all things thru Christ who strengthens me." Phillipians 4:13

  5. As for the smoke..I have run into that before's really hard to get rid of.. I washed the smoky dresser I had with bleach and TSP .. not mixed together of course.. and let them bake in my garage for a couple weeks.. ( I live in Phoenix) that seemed to help. The thing that really sealed in the stank tho I think, was a coat of Poly.. in all the drawers and everywhere. it's really hard to get rid of.. I even asked the Youngsters.. and they said " dont' know."?


i love receiving and reading all of your comments! i may not have time to reply to all of them, but please don't let that stop you from leaving them! when i do get the time i will come by and visit you and see what you're up to! i am starting a new business venture so my time will be short for a while, until i get things up and running-thanks for understanding! keep creating!
