My furniture are of the highest quality vintage and I am extremely picky about what I purchase to paint. The vintage furniture and Decor I select to paint are with extra charm and personality, plus I love the idea of re-purposing for many reasons. I feel vintage furniture and decor has more character and is better quality, plus it is very fulfilling to save a piece that otherwise would have been tossed in a landfill.

This bank was perfect! We asked for a variation in the color for our painted pig that was a baby shower gift. The colors black, gray and white worked just great. It also arrived in plenty of time before the shower, something we really appreciated. Thanks so much for a wonderful, custom gift!

About

My Story

Making something old new again is very exciting to me. I love the idea of saving a piece and giving it a new fresh look. I also have always had a thing for vintage and one of my favorite childhood stories was The Velveteen Rabbit. I feel old items have character, charm and elegance that can not be acquired by a newer manufactured piece of furniture.

I love painting custom items and wanted to paint personalized items that are unique to each one of my customers. Anyone can buy a mass produced item, but I wanted to offer items that are one of a kind and individualized. My piggy banks are new and manufactured, however, they are custom painted just for you. NO two are alike because they are hand painted by me. the piggy banks and furniture is sealed with a durable protective coat for easy cleaning and lasting appearance.

I love creating a new look for a piece of furniture that had been around for some time. I have always been in love with vintage items and older homes which I suppose it why I love older furniture versus newer. Just like some fine wine I feel quality furniture gets better with age.

I also love painting home decor and giving it a new look. I enjoy finding fun and unique items and you never know what home decor item will pop up in my shop. The home decor items get snatched up fast so do not wait if you see something in my shop in which you want to purchase (: I probably won't be able to find another since they are personal finds when I am out looking.

Creating is what keeps me centered and I love what I do. I am so fortunate to be able to do this and send it to others.

Thanks so much for stopping by, Here is also my youtube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCB6fulFT7M7gwHGQL1ImvpQ

Shipping
Shipping Options are as follows:


Painted Furniture is wrapped and packaged professionally and shipped,
to insure that your item arrives safe and sound. Package is insured.
The service is UPS and takes about 3 -10 business days ,depending on your location. However, I do not guarantee the package will get to your home on a specific date because of shipping delays and unexpected events in shipping.

Once item is shipped I will give you the tracking number and expected delivery date.

NO RETURNS ON HAND-PAINTED FURNITURE THAT IS SHIPPED!!!!! I will work with you if you are unsatisfied but anything hand-painted and shipped I cannot re-do and then return. I want you to know before purchasing that my items are distressed, rustic and not perfect nor do I want them to be since this adds to the charm. I am not about mass producing and creating work that looks mass produced. My work is one of a kind and done professionally, however, if you like everything precise and measured with each line exact and every circle the same I am not that girl and this is not that shop. But if you like items that are free hand, loaded with charm and whimsy you came to the right place (:
Additional policies and FAQs
All of my items are hand painted and this means the look of my work is NOT going to look manufactured. All of my pictures can be zoomed to see the detail in the painting. If you like perfect straight lines and a look that is more mass produced my hand painted items are probably not suitable for what you are wanting. I will not refund on work that is considered not perfect. Example, straight lines painted, perfect uniformed spirals and dots that are all the same size.

Some of my furniture is antiqued and/or distressed. This is what adds texture and character to the furniture. I will not refund an item that has been altered because of a technique I have done to the piece. I am an artist and do everything free hand. Each spiral, flower, dot is all hand painted and will have differences in size and shape.

ATTENTION: About Custom Orders. Let me know when you need an order in your home by and I will do my best to complete it in that time frame. I do not guarantee a custom order to be in a home on a specific date, but I will do my best to have it done in a reasonable time frame. Depending on the size determines how long it will take me to complete the piece. My approximate turn around for a medium size piece of furniture is two weeks. I can give you an apx. time frame when you order, because it depends on how many other orders on am working on and the size of the item you order.
