American Paint Company – A Feature in a Decorating Career

If you know me or have been following my progress, you are aware that I started my decorating career solely making custom window treatments.

There was no style that I ever refused to fabricate. I always felt confident that I could execute whatever was asked of me.
I am self-taught. But, I must tell you, I have definitely had teachers. My mother, Geraldine, my Aunt Carol and my grandma, Octavia, have all influenced me. I was so passionate about window treatments that I would have never imagined that I would be painting furniture.
Sometimes life takes you down a different road. I chose to walk that road.
I recently painted these chairs in APC Lincoln’s Hat and reupholstered them in denim and nailhead trim. Honestly, I want to do it all! And I do, one project at a time.
