If you frequent this blog you have probably noticed that I have been MIA for a while. I have totally neglected this blog due to the fact that my hubby and I were enjoying ourselves in Costa Rica for about 10 days. It felt sooooo good to take a vacation! While I was away my mom had 25 pieces of furniture dropped off to be painted and four pieces dropped off to be upholstered. Yikes! I came home from my trip and was flabbergasted. It took a few days for me to get my head on straight and a couple more days for my mom and I to get organized. We finally got a good game plan in place and have started making headway on all of this work.
The slipcover below is one of our most recently completed projects.
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.
