Hard to believe it's been one year since we closed the store. People always ask, "Do you miss your store?" Honestly, have to admit that it is the great people we met over the years that are missed most. Below are just a FEW of the many items brought in to be restyled. Really enjoyed many, many projects as it was so rewarding to see each and everyone complete. Really enjoyed seeing the excitement when the tabletop was complete - minus the fruit!!
It is with mixed emotions that we closed our storefront. During the years we met some of the very nicest people in Evansville and surrounding communities. Also want to let those of you who might be contemplating opening a storefront - GO FOR IT! Know that if you treat the customer with utmost respect, provide them with information for which they sought your business and share happiness with them you will be greatly blessed. As we step into the next chapter of our lives we wish to express our sincerest gratitude for each and everyone of our past customers. Thanks for the support and kindness shared. Sincerely, Thelma and Mike
Transformations are so much fun when there is no sanding or stripping required. The hardest decision is knowing the right color for the piece of furniture. Often a piece just screams, "Paint me BLACK" and when you don't hear those little hints we are here to help. Amy Howard Chalk Paint is now available in 52 colors. Many of the whites have just a suttle hue that when seen in various lights show the true color character of that particular shade. Truly BAUHAUS BUFF has been my all time favorite before LINEN was developed. This chalk paint does NOT have to be sealed if you desire the flat dead chalky look. However, you must give the new Paint Sealer a try. This product is so easy to apply. Simply stroke it on with a nice paint brush, we prefer the Purdy line, and when it's dry gives your furniture a nice sheen. Like to recommend to folks who have struggled with wax application in the past. However, Amy Howard's Clear and Dark Waxes- carnauba wax-once bonded with your chalk paint leaves a slick smooth finish. Our workshops provide you w/confidence to begin projects you have been putting off.

Store hours are 10:00 am - 5:00 pm except Monday and Wednesday morning opening is delayed an hour. I like to get some physical exercise and those two days I do swim, by taking an aerobic exercise class at Lloyd Pool. I feel the benefits of water exercise and feel the need to continue.

9/19/13 ~ Seven days and counting and I've learned the overhead, lite box sign might make it for opening day!

Enjoyed fellowship with Green River Kiwanis at this evening's Award Banquet as we turn the calendar to a new year.
The Storefront is looking more official . . . Overhead Box sign ready in approximately 6 weeks. It will be absent for opening day, Friday, September 27, 2013, but understanding permits take few days to a week to acquire.
