Two Upcycled Rooms & Meet Me at the Mom Cave!


Upcycled Dining Room at the Philadelphia Home Show - love the pommel horse bench!

How amazing is this dining room?

Only Denise from The Painted Home would come up with the idea to use a pommel horse as a bench!


Not only does she know how to turn castoffs into cool furniture and room designs but she’s also hysterical.

Guess what – we’re going to be presenting together at the Philadelphia Home Show this Sunday (1/19/14)!

The topic – how to create your very own mom cave.

Philadelphia Home Show Speakers

This is Denise’s third year as a designer at the Philly Home Show.

Last year – she brought it with an upcycled dining room.

She turned this blank space …

Two years ago, Denise whipped up a flea market chic guest room/office.
