As an Artist, my home has always been my most daunting and most exciting canvas. The possibilities are endless..if not always affordable…and as long as I am a living breathing person, my work is never done. This makes life fun, because around every corner is a project just waiting for me. The biggest enemy is often TIME.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE MAKEOVERS
IS THE CABINET I PAINTED BENJMAIN
MOORE PARADISE PINK
Recently, I was in the mood to spruce up some tired pieces around the house…items that could easily be re-painted later, should the spirit move me…and since METALLICS, especially GOLDS are everywhere right now… I started with some Gold Spray paint…

Who has time?
Nobody has time. Not even the people
that actually get things done…have time!
WHICH IS WHY MY FAVORITE MAKEOVERS
ARE QUICK COLOR-CHANGE MAKEOVERS…..

…and lastly I painted the handles on this
dresser and gave the mirror above a spritz!…
The Threshold for Target Lamp was already gold!
