Painted Goodness

When I first came across Painted Goodness, Rene’s, Instagram feed I was blown away! It was actually the bathroom that sold me instantly, I had huge ‘bathroom envy’ with her amazing buffet as a vanity! As I started looking through the rest of her pictures of her home, I fell in love with all the beautiful antiques and chippy, salvaged finds through out. I had to share it with all of you, so please enjoy!!

The home is a small house built in 1920 in the historic mill town of Snoqualmie Washington. Just 20 min drive from Seattle, she get the best of both worlds! The beautiful, quiet country life with the convenience of being close enough to the big city.

Rene live’s here with her husband, stepson, 3 labradors and a crazy cat. She helps her husband run his small business. When the two of them  are not working, you will most likely find them doing some sort of DIY project together or you’ll find her in her workshop painting and refurbishing old furniture.
When asked what her decor style is, Rene said “I really doesn’t stick to one particular style in her home decor. I just surround myself with things that I love. I would say that I am mostly influenced by the farmhouse and cottage style. I keep my home decor simple. It can be challenging when you have such a huge love affair with vintage and antique finds and living in a small house so I rotate things often. That way I get to enjoy my finds without it feeling too busy. It works for me because I love to decorate and it gives me the opportunity to put the things I love on center stage rather than having everything get lost in the clutter.”
Her favorite thing about the house is all the imperfect charm and the character that comes with an older home, like the old original doors and unsuspecting nooks and crannies.
Whenever possible Rene love’s to support small businesses and buy handmade. All her linens and pillow covers are bought from Etsy shops. Most of the furniture in her home are Craigslist finds that she has painted and refurbished.

 The coffee table in the living room is an antique cart from the old boeing factory which was used to carry airplane engine parts. Her husband and her spent several weekends restoing it. The light fixture above is a DIY light was made using a metal basket she found at her local hardware store.

The antique french chair and foot stool she painted and re-upholstered with an antique grain sack. The basket light above it is from farmhouseware which we had to re-configure so we could hardwire it.
