Custom Order Empire Dresser

She is so GOOD at what she does...my daughter was blessed to have her in class as she really thrived there. I have been more than happy over the years to paint a few … [Read more...]

 Oh man. I wish I had remembered to take a before picture! It is usually the first thing I do when I bring a piece home right after I unload it from my Jeep, but I must have forgotten this time. Boo.
