I started painting furniture six years ago, and what started as a fun hobby turned into a joyful passion.  My husband suggested I turn our dining room into my painting studio and before I knew it our entire home was engulfed with flea market finds, garage sale scores and pieces I found on the side of the road.  In 2015 I opened The Gilded Monarch and was finally able to fulfill a long-held dream of opening a shop of my own. 


The Gilded Monarch offers an array of WORKSHOPS that can be found by clicking on the SHOP BUTTON. I am also happy to accommodate private groups upon request...just ask! They are a great way to gain confidence before tackling a paint project, or for getting together and having fun while making something pretty to take home.

Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.
