My mom and I love to sew! Stop by our store almost any given weekday and you’ll find us sitting at our sewing machines working away. We are usually creating custom slipcovers, bedding, or window coverings for our clients, but sometimes we like to sneak in something fun for ourselves. Like these curtain panels we recently made for my master bedroom. They are super casual curtains with a fun burlap ruffle along the bottom. These curtain panels have large grommets at the top.
Do you have unusual size windows? We can create custom window coverings to perfectly fit all of your windows. Are you looking for a certain style that you just can’t seem to find at any of the stores selling ready made curtains? Let us make your vision a reality! Stop by our store with your fabric and we’ll make whatever is is you want. We also offer a selection of home decorative fabrics that you can choose from.
Below is another sample of our work. A relaxed balloon shade made from a pretty sheer fabric.

My mom is a DIY kind of gal. When I was a kid I remember trips to thrift stores, strolling the hardware store isles, and of course spending hours feeling fabric at the yardage shop. She was constantly transforming bargain buys into treasures for our home. With a fresh coat of paint or a new slipcover, she gave old furniture new life. We have always enjoyed being creative together and in 2008 we turned our hobby and passion into a business.
Alchemy fine living is a creative business. We offer furniture painting services, upholstery, and custom slipcovers. We also sell a few hand crafted items on Etsy.
I'm Deana, the author of this blog. My mom, Connie, taught me from a young age how to spot a deal at a flea market or a thrift shop. She could always spot the hidden potential of an old, worn out piece of furniture. I learned to sew when I was four years old and all through the years I helped my mom with DIY projects around the house.
In 2008 she & I turned our hobby into a business. We re-do old furniture and hand craft items for sale in our Etsy store. For those who, like us, love to DIY we offer lots of tips and advice in our tutorial videos. We also offer furniture painting, upholstery, and sewing services for those who don't want to tackle the project themselves.
