I met a lady recently through the blog, Ms. Donna Monk. We exchanged a few emails back and forth and Donna told me she paints furniture. I’m always looking to work with great contractors and craftsman and I felt she was a good contact to have. I told her about a chest of drawers that I picked up from Habitat. The piece was too stained to refinish so I asked her about painting it. When I dropped it off at her house, I realized that Donna not only paints furniture and wood pieces, she revives them and captures what they once were, and they’re beautiful. She is a true artisan. Donna will take a rugged piece of furniture or an old door or shutter and give it a distressed finish with either vibrate or muted colors. She has gorgeous pieces hanging on her walls and sitting on her floors. You can contact Donna to transform your custom piece or purchase one at Chic Antique on Johnnie Dodds where she consigns. Whether you call the style Shabby Chic or Coastal Chic, Donna will make it amazing. Her craftsmanship is superior and her pricing is reasonable. You can find her on Facebook at Donna Monk, Charleston or The Painted Cottage, Charleston. What a great way to REUSE THE BEAUTY OF THE PAST…thanks Donna!
