“Joe needs a TV show”

I hear this literally five times a week by complete strangers, as well as those who know him best. Joe has an uncanny ability to make people laugh and enjoy themselves. It is usually at his own expense and that does not bother him in the least. He is confident in who he is and uses that to his advantage. Me, on the other hand. I bring the stability to the table. He makes me laugh and I keep him...

Q&A – Do you paint pieces that people already own?

This is another top asked question for the MegMade team. It is asked by everyone - customers, designers and other furniture painters. The answer is yes, we do. So many other painted furniture sellers have shied away from painting pieces that people already own and I totally get why. The stakes are high when it is a beloved family heirloom. However, we believe so much in our process and the artisans that work on them, that we know our customers will...

If furniture could speak – Nicole Regan

I cannot tell you how many people come in and say "if only furniture could speak." That is the beauty of vintage furniture. It has lived a life, sometimes many.

6 ways to decorate with the color green

What I have noticed about myself is that I dress with the same colors I decorate with. I love neutrals and basics and then I use a few colors that are go to's in my life to jazz it up a bit. I am like everyone else and love blue and black, but you know what I have noticed lately, I veer towards green! I freaking love green and I am so glad that it is totally always on trend....

My word for the year

I was meeting with my mentor the other day and she asked me what she could pray for me for the coming year. I paused a moment and I told her, you know what, I just want breakthrough in so many areas of my life right now. I know what I want things to look like, but need the breakthrough to get there and the only things stopping them is me. So then, right then and there, I claimed it....

We are in Better Homes and Gardens

**So I really wanted to post this several weeks ago, but our website got hacked not once, but 3 times within the last month and we had to divert the page to the store. The hack bot evidently thought it would be funny to replace our pretty pictures on our homepage with text saying that we sold drugs and sex. Lovely, right!** These last few weeks have been pretty crazy epic around here, right!?! We have a baby, our nephew commits...
