Ok friends, this Floral Nightstand has been literally blowing up our Social Media channels lately, so we wanted to get a little more personal and tell the story behind this little cutie. Before we get started, I just need to say something here...doesn’t this piece look like something out of a fairytale? I mean the bright and bold colors, the flowers, the iridescent knobs….it’s safe to say I. AM. OBSESSED. I mean really this piece has my name all over it….so if you’re ready to learn all about the magic of how this enchanting little nightstand came to be, then keep on reading….
Hi friends! I am so excited to be writing this blog for you today! We’ll get to the main part in a minute, just be patient with me….First off I have to say one of the best parts of our job is the ability to be creative. I mean who wouldn’t love being able to make something new and unique everyday, but let me tell you my friends, creativity is a funny thing sometimes. You have some sort of inspiration for whatever you are working on and a idea of what something should look like in your head, but it doesn’t always turn out to be what you expected. Sometimes, it turns out even better than you could have imagined. (I have to be honest, it happens to me all the time with my wreaths. And ok, they don’t always turn out perfect, but there is no such things as a mistake right?) Anyway, what we had envisioned for this piece was a little different than the end result, but we are really excited with the end result and it really exceeded our expectations (and if you ask me, it really speaks to the scope of Gabe’s talent as an artist but I may be a little biased. I mean both Gabe and Marco are extremely talented)

One of the things I enjoy most about my job is being able to take a piece that most people wouldn’t take a second glance at and give it a new life. I mean how awesome is it to take a piece someone was thinking about throwing away and completely transform it so they can use it in their home for years to come? Not to mention the fact they can say its a one of a kind piece is pretty awesome too! Recently I had the honor of doing this for a client on a sewing table that had belonged to his mother and had since been damaged. Take a look at the before and after pictures! Can you believe the transformation? If you want to know my secrets then keep reading...
Hey there fellow Painters! I have been getting a lot of questions lately about what tools I am using when I’m painting my furniture. So, I decided to let you in on some of my secrets. Now I can’t give away everything I know (I mean come on, we would be here forever if I did that), but I am going to let you get the inside scoop of what I keep in my “Painter’s Toolbox” (And no I don’t keep my supplies in a toolbox). Whether you have never picked up a paint brush in your life and have decided to start painting anyway (Yayyyy you by the way!!!) or have been painting for years, here are 10 things every furniture painter needs.
