Hi, I’m Caroline!

I'm a DIYer and furniture artist based in NC. I'm experienced painting furniture pieces, kitchen cabinets and walls through her many projects. I love transforming vintage furniture with artistic designs and fun outside-the-box ideas. I believe you are only limited by your imagination! I'm an award winning furniture artist with her Faux Bone Inlay Stencil Dresser. I was also a 2020 Zibra Golden Brush Award Winner for the best Mid-Century Modern piece. I've also been featured in Do-It-Yourself Magazine! In my courses, I take the guess work out of the topic and demonstrated techniques to give you the confidence to create a piece on your own!
