Decorating With Painted Treasures

Hi, Susi here. I write as a guest blogger for Design Shuffle, a fabulous social media site that promotes interior designers and their work from around the world. I'm so happy to visit ReDesign Concepts today and share some painted treasures and decorating ideas. I am inspired by Sharyn's philosophy of rediscovering what you have and using it in new ways. Painted furniture and decorative objects can be moved about within a home to add color and interest to any room. From antique pieces with original finishes, to restored and reimagined vintage pieces, decorating with painted treasures is easy and fun.
