Marcia Treasures sells a number of beautiful reproduction pieces with hand painted finishes and distressing. Consider buying some painted pieces to brighten up your home and to add some detail. Designing around antiques can be very rewarding as they offer interest and intrigue compared to our modern day furniture. The beauty of painted or limed wood is that it is very easy to match to existing furniture or future furniture for that matter. With many hardware stores able to match paint with their computer technology it is easy to add to furniture along the way and having everything work together seamlessly.
