Better with Age

Aging Wood Using Better With Age

I honestly had no idea how this would turn out. I am surprised my hubby let me experiment, but after 33 years of marriage, he is getting easier to convince. This was a fun technique. I stripped the table first, but didn’t strip it all. The outcome is so cool. My hubby even liked it.

Custom Orders

5 Ways To Request A Custom Order (And What To Expect)

I’m always open to requests for custom orders! If there’s a piece of furniture that you love but it’s not quite the right color or style, I’m your girl. I also love the challenge of bringing your imagined painting or wall art to life as I’ve done in the past, specifically with beachy pieces like pallet and rope art.

How To Reach Me For Custom Orders

There are a few ways you can get in touch to discuss what I can offer you: 

  1. Facebook Message: this is one of the best ways to get in contact with me. Having this business, I find myself with my phone often checking my business social media accounts. I get instant notifications for Facebook Messenger, as well as the other administrator on my account (my daughter). Feel free to shoot me a message any time, and I will get back to you soon!
  2. Instagram Message: this is another great option because I see my Instagram messages with my Facebook messages. If Facebook isn’t your favorite, I can still see your Instagram messages and will get working with you on your new piece quickly.
  3. Website Form: my website form sends your message to my email where I can reply to you and get the details of your order solidified.
  4. Direct Email: I’ve also listed my email directly on my website and various social media accounts. Feel free to click on this link and send me a message about your order as well!
  5. Give me a call or text: My phone number is available for anyone in the area wishing to reach out to me about a custom order. If you’re busy and just want to get in touch quickly you can text me and we can set up a time to discuss your needs!

What To Expect From The Experience

Once we get in contact about your custom order, we will discuss the details. These include a quote on the price for labor and materials, the time I need to complete the order, and delivery to my studio and back to your loving home. 

These details will vary per project, as certain furniture pieces and art will take more or less time to complete. I’m also happy to help you choose the style/color of your new piece if you’re having trouble with that as well! In the past, I have visited client’s homes in order to properly match colors and other decor. 

Your experience will be personalized and your piece completed with detail and care. Reach out any time to start the conversation!

The Hutch Transformation

I have had this hutch since the early 90’s. We did a dining room makeover and the hutch stuck out like a sore thumb.  New furniture is expensive, so… I had this idea to paint it blue to match my mother-in-law’s antique dishes she gave me. The dishes are about 45 years old.  My mother-in-law had a bed and breakfast in Germany. It amazes me how the dishes are still in such good shape. We love using these antique dishes in our everyday life,!
Though My mother-in-law and my hubby both thought I was crazy! I decided to go for it. I used blue and white chalk paint. The blue matched the dishes very well. I thought the inside needed paint too, to cover all the oak look. It wasn’t too easy painting the inside but the outcome was worth it. I used a wax to seal the paint.
It was time to paint the doors… I really am not a fan of the style of glass in the doors, so I decided to just leave them off. Patching holes is really not that hard. I was so curious to see what the family would think. And once again, I showed them that I know what I’m talking about..(ha,ha). My hubby and his mom both loved it. (Thank God!)
I guess what I’m saying… Before you spend a ton of money, transform a piece you already have. The time and resources you spend is well worth it. The way I look at it, I can spend that money on vacations instead of new furniture.
Garage Sale Find Makeover

Garage Sale Find Makeover

Check out this DIY video of an outdated coffee table/side table set!
This living room set from the 1980s needed a makeover. The glass inserts are difficult to clean, and the wood was screaming for painting. After removing the glass and painting the set with Farmhouse Paint, it needed something else in the empty holes.
Why not use reclaimed wood?? I painted the wood using chalk paint and Unicorn Spit and glued them right in!
Instead of purchasing new living room sets, consider revamping what you already have! Flipping furniture is something I’ve been having fun with, especially seeing these older pieces get a new life! #happycreationsbyjessiemae #thejessiemaeway
Dresser Makeover

Dresser Makeover

Once upon a time there was this beautiful dresser with a mirror. The dresser was so beautiful that I couldn’t bear to put any paint on it.
So, I decided not to paint it. I put it in my space at the Indian River Antique Mall and it sat there for two months. Many admired it but it did not find a new home. So… with the help of my amazing hubby, I hauled it back home.
I didn’t quite know what to do with this gorgeous dresser, because the wood is so amazing! And then…the light bulb came on. I didn’t want to lose the beauty of the wood and the flow of the drawers, so I took a chance and partially painted the dresser.
I never really loved that mirror so I decided to lose it. The outcome paid off. I never thought I could love this dresser with paint on it…but Omgoodness, I AM IN LOVE!
