I love to paint furniture! There is something so gratifying about bringing new life to old, worn out furniture. It always amazes me how much a coat of paint can transform a piece of furniture. I paint tons of furniture for clients, but I also like to share my experiences for those of you who are DIY types. In this short video I offer a few tips on how to achieve a smooth, perfect finish on a dining chair using an HVLP gravity feed spray gun.
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.
