Have you painted upholstrey?

I saw this chair in a store recently. I thought it was super cute. I love the ruffle added to the bottom! I got closer and touched it and realized it had been painted. I did not know just looking at it. I think they did a super job. I have not tried this but have seen lots of pics on Pinterest. So tell me have you painted upholstrey? Did you love the results? Any tips we should know before we give it a go? Would love to hear from you.

Our new store opened today!

I have sold on Etsy for years now, but have wanted to have my own entity not tied to Etsy or any other larger online store. I have partnered with my business partner Mary and created what we hope will be a unique online shopping destination. It will feature our handmade jewelry that we have done for so many years, but also some of the home decor items we sell in our local booth in Alpharetta Georgia.
It has a bohemian free spirited feel, that appeals to all ages. We hope you will sign up for our newsletter to hear the latest news and sales info.
We have the latest looks for fall in accessories too! We are offering free shipping through the of October so stop on by! Sassyandstash.com

Faux Beams faux Sho!

A friend of mine builds very high end homes. He let us tour one recently and I was totally blown away by the incredible rustic beams throughout the house. "Where did you find those?!" I hammered him. He said they were totally fake and weighed about 14 pounds each for the 13 ft long one! Wow!
Well his source was a builder supply compamy, but he said they have something very similar at Home Depot! These pics I took off of their website. Are they not amazing looking. This totally makes it affordable than the real deal beams. The 5x5x13 beam was $164 on the site and they have to be ordered to the store. Here is a pic of them installed. Amazing arent' they? Anyone interested in trying them? I'd love to see your pics and share them here!
