living-room-1-of-1.jpgFound This Painted That is based on the premise that you don’t need a huge decorating budget, but with a little elbow grease and ingenuity, it’s still possible to have a current look!

I will be bringing some new ideas, some inspiration AND I will be giving step by step instruction on changing what you have, or assisting you to look at what you have in a different light. Iโ€™ll be posting before and after pictures of my attempts, and my view on what worked and what didnโ€™t.

I am a stager, decorator, colour consultant, decorative artist, and DIYer who with a small budget but big ideas wants to share the beauty hiding in our ugly ducklings!
