Hello and welcome!

I will start this blog by posting a photo of what started me on my furniture painting journey one year ago.

mahogany dining furniture

In the summer of 2012, we were updating the main floor flooring and I wanted hardwood in the dining room.  I also wanted new dining room furniture.  Sadly, there isn’t much of a market for mahogany furniture like mine unless you want to give it away.  After several weeks on Kijiji and Craigslist, I decided I had nothing to lose by painting it.  So I did.

I’ve always been a research junky and then I discovered Pinterest.  Sometimes I wonder if that discovery was a good one or not 😉  I can’t tell you the number of hours I spent reading up on techniques, paint types, colours, fabrics, etc.  After many weeks, I finally tackled it.  I wish I was a blogger then because it really was a learning journey and I loved every minute of it.

Here’s a peak at how it looks now.

  1. Gorgeous dining room! I agree with you–I’m not sure if discovering pinterest was a good thing or a bad thing. I do know one thing–I watch a lot less TV now (unless Doctor Who or Downton Abbey is on)!

    I too have done a lot of work around my home and with furniture before I started blogging. I’m looking forward to reading your blog.
