You see, I have been painting furniture for 35 years now. At the beginning it was because I couldn't afford anything else. Now that I can afford it, I am still painting it.
I have several beautiful pieces in my booths that are not painted. Guess what? They are still in my booth! And have been there for quite some time.
When I first told a friend of mine I was going to rent a space at the Maumee Angique Mall and fill it with painted furniture. She asked " Will they let you have painted furniture?" Yes they will and yes they did! Now they have quite a few booths with painted furniture. Everyone is painting furniture!
Again, I was the first one with painted furniture at D'Vine Designs. Now, every booth in the boutique has painted furniture.
So there must be a reason why I paint it? Well there is, I love to take something old , ready for the junk yard and give it a new life. There's something about taking it from drab to fab that gets my heart pumping! Not all of my pieces are perfect. And I don't want them to be perfect, I want them to be loved and appreciated.
Peace, love & junk,
