This simple, Pottery Barn, side table was in excellent condition when our client dropped it off for painting. She had just grown tired of the finish and wanted a bit of a change. We painted them a beautiful brown and lightly distressed the edges. After the paint had cured we waxed the night stand with paste wax to add a hard, protective finish. The labor charges for this were $97.50.
The paint we used was Sherwin Williams Turkish Coffee in a satin finish.
Alchemy fine living is a creative business. My mom and I offer furniture painting services, simple upholstery, and custom slipcovers.
We have been painting furniture for clients for over a decade now. The two of us have been sewing our whole lives. We've sewn things like prom dresses and bathing suits, but back in 2008 we decided to focus our seamstress abilities on home decorative items; specifically custom made slipcovers.
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 offer furniture painting, upholstery, and sewing services.
