Learning Some New Things Over Here!

Happy April!  We are still waiting for spring to show up here in Northern Minnesota!  (Southern Minnesota is having a blizzard right now!)  Not my favorite time of year, as I would LOVE for the weather to be a balmy 50 degrees (ABOVE ZERO) the sun to be shining and for my driveway to be full of furniture to paint! Thats when I am happiest!

Custom orders have covered the calendar for the month of April!  I've done bedroom sets, end tables, night stands, cedar chests and mirrors this past week!  I also have a few buffets out in the garage that are ready to be sanded and painted!  If you are looking for a statement piece, look no further!  Message me for pictures if you would like to see how detailed and stunning they are! I will be taking custom orders for May starting on April 20th.  If you have a piece that needs a little extra love, call or message us!

A few things are changing here at Hopping Wren!  Instead of sticking to the tried and true brands of chalk paint that I've been using for the past few years (and will continue to use) I'm adding new products and finishes. Milk paint has become one of my favorite types of paint to use, and I'm learning some new tricks and taking classes from some pretty wonderful furniture flippers!

I have just begun to send out a few tins of my home made, all natural furniture wax!  So far, so good!  It smells great, leaves a subtle sheen on furniture and is also good for chapped lips and cracked elbows and heels.  Seriously! If you purchase a piece of furniture from me this month, or have a custom order done, I'll throw in a tin of it!  It will be packaged and labled some time in May.

Spring is right around the corner....I just know it!
