If you are someone who follows this blog you have surely noticed that it has been MIA for about a month now. I have absolutely no idea what happened, but all of the sudden all of my content completely and totally disappeared and apparently it has fallen into some deep, dark black hole that it will likely never return from. I have to say that I am extremely disappointed. I had six years worth of blog posts, photographs and tons of great content that is just gone. Gone?!? Seriously???!?!? Ugh! The more I think about it the more mad I get. Anyways, I guess there’s not much I can do about it, so instead of complaining I’m going to try and re-build it.
Please be patient with me as I try to get this site back up and running.
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.
