Flight of Fancy, LLC

We create spaces where timeworn treasures co-exist with modern amenities to create a unique home that reflects the needs of those who dwell within it.

Being a creative person by nature, I have always been able to see the beauty in everything around me, even when others couldn't. And, for many years, I dreamed about owning a quaint little boutique where I could create gorgeous displays using old vintage treasures I found and bought on my antiquing excursions. However, I also knew I wanted to get my hands dirty, literally! That's when I started painting my old vintage pieces I had laying around after envisioning them in a fresh new way. Soon enough, friends started asking me to paint their old outdated furniture and they told their friends and so on. Before I realized it, what was once simply a, flight of fancy, had become my reality. I had a thriving furniture restoration and home décor business. I thought it only appropriate to name my business, Flight of Fancy because it was how my dream was born. A few years (and hundreds of furniture pieces) later, I've taken faux finishing classes and honed my skills to set my work apart from the rest. I would love to help you give a fresh and revitalized look to your furniture or you can shop from my inventory. Specifically, we can be commissioned to update furniture pieces in your home through the use of paint, distressing, stenciling, decoupage and more. Don't have a piece of furniture that needs revitalization? No problem! We offer new home decor items for purchase in our online market at www.squareup.com/store/flight_of_fancy. We are always creating new and eclectic pieces, so visit us often or please message us with questions or to receive a custom paint quote for your furniture piece.

Ah, Paris! Je vous adore! Only I’m not in Paris at all...just at one of my fav little places to grab a bite and have a coffee or glass of vino, La Petite Lou Lou creperie in Purcellville. Every time I visit I feel transported back to one of my favorite cities in the world! The décor, food, coffees/teas, wine and authentic ambience are so exquisitely appointed that I tend to lose myself in there for a little while. Do you a have a favorite local spot you tend to frequent often and spend hours in?

I’ve been working on finishing some
contracts from a couple of weeks ago and these incredible beauties were just picked up by my sweet client! These were some of the most unique end tables I’ve ever seen and were inherited to her from her grandparents. The fluted edges and gorgeous carved wooden details is what she wanted to highlight and so I distressed and glazed them for a beautifully elegant look. Painted in Antique Villa Wise Owl One Hour Enamel on top and Smokey Quartz OHE on bottom with black hazelnut glaze, these beauties are not only beautiful but can take on some good use because of the enamel finish. Before pic in comments 😉. Aren’t the sweet?!

I love a good down home farm market...don’t you? Had the pleasure of meeting my parents at one today and exploring this gem of a place I’ve been meaning to get to, but always seem too busy to check out, called Roots 657. The food was delicious and the market was all local wineries, artisans and bakers. We then went antiquing and just enjoyed this glorious day! Grateful for these memories with my parents!

I began taking a break from work last year and it was the best thing for my mental and physical health soooooo, here we go again! I’m finishing out all currently signed contracts and will begin booking new client projects at the end of the summer! ✌️ and ❤️!

Wow, what a night! Definitely one for the books as my biggest workshop to date😊. 24 attendees and each one totally ROCKED their project🙌🏻! Whether it was a planter box or lazy susan tray, each was different and the creativity was flowing with color choices and stencil designs...I’m always super impressed with what people come up with! A huge thank you to Mary Ann from Kindercare for this awesome opportunity!

Getting prepped and ready for tomorrow night’s big DIY workshop and the prototypes are completed! Whoot whoot 🙌🏻🙌🏻! I’m smitten over the beautiful planters some of the attendees are going to make with pretty little painted mason jars...isn’t the stencil lovely🥰?! The perfect find😉. The other half of the class is DIYing beautiful French-inspired lazy susan trays! Which would you choose if you were going to do this workshop?!

Look at these GORGEOUS vintage end tables my client, Dana, just inherited from her family! The details are exquisite and they are going to be amazing painted up pretty and glazed to accentuate the beauty of the carvings! Can’t wait to get started! Time to clean and prime these babies! 🎨🖌

Remembering today and always, those who served sacrificed their lives to better ours! We are honored to have heroes in the form of soldiers fighting to defend our freedoms! On this Memorial Day 2019, let’s pause our festivities and take a few moments to remember what these men and women have done and continue to do for our great nation!

A perfect lazy Saturday morning and I am soaking it in! My parents picked up my kids for an overnight and I get to do whatever I want this AM...feels so weird, but in a good way! LOL! I’ve been wanting to catch up on my magazines so no better time than the present. What do you have planned for day two of this long weekend? Any thing fun happening? Let’s hear it!

Who remembers the cabana saga last year?! 🤦🏻‍♀️🤣 Well...it was worth every ounce of energy and frustration, let me tell you! We spent a lot of time the last couple weekends getting everything set up around the pool (a whole OTHER aggravation until this AM🙄 so yes, pools can be a pain in the ass. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. LOL!) BUT the effort is totally worth it because when I see the cabana or sit on my porch overlooking the pool, I feel like I am in the tropics. Will I ever order from PB again? Hell no...but I’m glad my last purchase was the cabana. 😉 “Life is Better by the Swimming Pool” for sure! Open for business...who wants to come swimming?! Enjoy your kickoff to summer!

HUGE thank you to the ever AWESOME, Chelsea Terry Evans of https://www.facebook.com/appleblossomway/ for my new fav Cling-On brush better known as “the shorty”! I love the control I have with this short handle and I use it daily for glazing, painting, sealing. I really need to get another one so I don’t have to wash it so often🤣. LOL! Hop on over to her page Apple Blossom Way to get yourself one if you’re a painter like me!

😆You, guys...I’m so super ecstatic!! A couple weeks ago I was approached about an opportunity to teach a DIY workshop for a large group of teachers as their teacher appreciation gift from their administrator. I mean, is that not the COOLEST idea ever?! I mean what a great gift idea...so I came up with two DIY options, we have 30 people attending and I’m on cloud nine because this is gonna be fun. Just picked up some of the supplies for DIY project Option #1. Can anyone guess what we would be making 😉?!

I love me some pretty peonies!!! The brighter the better🌺! What is your fav flower?!

Can’t thank you all enough for getting me over the 500 follower goal on IG a couple of days ago!! I’ve always said that I have the very BEST people supporting me and helping me reach my goals and this is proof that I’m 💯% accurate in that statement! You all are the best and I’m grateful! Have a wonderful day!

Hey friends! So, I’m no IG wizard, to say the least, and it has taken a REALLY long time to build any kind of following on Instagram, BUT I’m only 2 people away from hitting 500 followers. So, can I ask a favor? If you have an IG account and haven’t followed me already, would you mind going and helping a girl out? @flightoffancyllc is my username and account is public. Thank you fabulous peeps! I’m sure IG will take away like 10 of my followers for every new follow but let’s give it a shot anyway, okay?, ✌️ and ❤️

IT’S MAKEOVER MONDAY!
As promised, I’m sharing with you some of my dining room makeover photos from last week when my grasscloth wallpaper was installed. I was REALLY hoping to grab some photos when the sun was shining in this room because it is so pretty, but as luck would have it, it’s been raining for what seems like an eternity so I got impatient (Who ME?! Never😉) and snapped some pics regardless of the monsoon that is taking place outside ☔️. So, the ceiling is painted in the color SW Black Fox, walls are papered in green grasscloth scattered with very dark brown/black flecks (I’ve included some closeups so you can see the texture). This weekend I restained and glazed the mirror above the buffet for more contrast against the wallpaper and I ❤️ the look! Keep in mind, new curtain panels are coming (pic of those at the end of photos), grey china cabinet will be replaced with something larger, I’ll have. A larger antique gold with black chandelier, and there will be a rug under the table eventually. I staged my dining table with black, green and pops of yellow which is divine in my book! Always a work in progress BUT for now this small step toward progress keeps me design-satiated😊 . So, what do you think so far, my friends? Drop a note below👇 to tell me your thoughts! Have a great rest of your Monday!

My Mother’s Day Gift - A Short Story For You...
About this time last year, I was checking in to one of the most quaint and beautiful inns in Middleburg, Va called The Goodstone Inn. And it was here that I had my Mother’s Day Retreat. It was magical...my own little room in a historic cottage, lovely grounds and views, a famous 5-star restaurant and awesome massage...ALL BY MYSELF! It was a dream...

But it wasn’t always like this on Mother’s Day. A few years ago, I had an awakening. I realized that what I REALLY needed and wanted for Mother’s Day was a short break from life. This means different things to different people. But, for me it meant 24 hours to myself. I’m an introvert by nature, and so I didn’t really want to go away WITH anyone because I wanted time to read, self-reflect, rest...and honestly just to be quiet and still. I felt VERY guilty asking for this time to myself because as moms we are programmed to give, give, and then give some more of ourselves, right? But I felt kind of desperate to ask for it for Mother’s Day because my head needed clearing and my soul needed feeding and my heart needed some rest and peace, and I may not get another chance until the following year. My dear husband obliged and the first year I stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Tyson’s. Last year, it was the Goodstone Inn. It was life changing!

After 24 hours of self love, I came back to my family refreshed and missing them. Back to my mom duties which I wouldn’t change for the world, but I was more focused and energetic and grateful for my family and my time away. Many people inquired how I was able to “escape” and I simply replied with, “I asked my husband, and he said, ‘sure’.” So it became my tradition.

So, my point is that any moms who need a break, just ask for it! Or, hell, ask for WHATEVER it is that makes you happy and rejuvenates your soul on Mother’s Day! The requirements for this vary from person to person, but go and be utterly selfish for 24 hours and then come back to life and see how your perspective changes...it’s quite amazing! This year I’m staying here with my kids and hubby because that is what I need and want...next year maybe I’ll plan another respite/staycation 😉. We’ll see! From one mom to all the other moms out there, wishing you a VERY Happy Mother’s Day!

(Longest post I’ve ever written, oops SORRY! Thanks for reading!)

Do you need some extra help styling your outdoor area? I’ve mentioned before that any outdoor space should be an extension of your interior with coordinating colors, style, beautiful fabrics and accessories. How gorgeous are these Sunbrella fabrics on the left from Maison Warehouse? These fabrics are going to be gorgeous on the cushions for couches and curtains for my client’s outdoor space and the rug will ground the space and make it feel comfortable and cozy! Contact me for help designing your outdoor area or interior space today!

Wallpaper going up TODAY ya’ll!!! I am SO in love with it and it’s the absolute BEST Mother’s Day gift to myself 😉! I’ll post the entire room when it’s done later and try to get the dark ceiling in as well. Loving the flecks of dark grass all scattered on the wallpaper, don’t you?! What do you want for Mother’s Day?!

Some paint and a little elbow grease can go a loooonnnngg way and make a big impact! My garage entryway now looks fresh and inviting as opposed to dingy and dirty. Big kudos to Wise Hour One Hour Enamel in Black (for door + stair treads), Antique Villa (for back of treads), and Bone color for stencil. Gorgeous smooth finish and now I want to paint All.The.Doors in my house this color🤣. And yes, my kids run in and out of this doorway a million times a day and the Wise Owl OHE will hold up to the wear and tears that those stairs endure on the daily!

Love this cute little vintage garden bench a repeat client brought over to me the other day for a refresh. Since she plans to put it on her covered porch, I painted it in Wise Owl One Hour Enamel paint in the color “Antique Villa”. This paint is the bomb and has the enamel topcoat built into the paint, so it will withstand different temperature changes. How sweet is this? Such a fresh and fun new look compared to the dreary brown it arrived in. Love my job!

IT’S HAPPENING!!!
It all started with some decorative eggs🤣LOL! Finally, my concept is coming to fruition as my grass wallpaper is getting installed on THURSDAY, ya’ll!! Many of you weighed in on which wallpaper you liked best and I chose option #1 which was your all’s favorite😉. I had the ceiling painted in SW Black Fox so we are ready to rock and roll Thursday.
With some antique brass/gold accessories my dream will come true with this color concept. Can’t wait to reveal the final look. Stay tuned and thank for your help friends! Hope your Monday is has been a good start to the week!

I am so blessed to get to do what I love! Today that meant spending the afternoon with these amazing ladies and walking them through the steps to creating a rustic French-inspired serving tray to use in their home. We had such a nice afternoon DIYing the day away, staining, painting, stenciling, and using power tools! They worked so hard and their creativity toward the end where they were creating their own stencil designs impressed me so much! Now THAT is what inspiration looks like! Job well done ladies! 🙌🏻❤️👍

Prepped and ready for our workshop tomorrow! So excited to see these awesome women for some DIY fun! Whoot Whoot!

It’s like Christmas whenever I get a package from Chelsea Terry Evans of Apple Blossom Way! You guys...it’s my first time ordering the Wise Owl Furniture Salve and I ordered it in lavender (my fav scent). HOLY CRAP is it amazing! I scratched up my new B.O.C. leather shoes and bought the salve hoping it would remove the scratch. Not only did it remove the scratch BUT it also refreshed the leather of my shoes and they smell amazing too! I’m hooked for life. This is an all natural salve so it’s safe to use on raw or finished wood, leather, skin and more! Pop over to Apple Blossom Way and get yourself some amazing Wise Owl products! Just.Do.It....mmmmkay?!😉

Maybe I have mentioned that I have a love affair with blush, blue and charcoal and pretty much have it sprinkled all around my home. On another page I belong to, we do “Tuesday Shoes Day”...how fun is that? We can post a pic of our cute shoes on our favorite flooring. So, my cute blush ballet flats coordinate perfectly with my Venezia rug from Boutique Rugs. If you haven’t checked them out for rugs, it’s a must! Great plush quality rugs at amazing prices! This one is under my bed in my master bedroom. Do you have a fav rug/shoe combo? Post away!

🌎 HAPPY EARTH DAY!🌍 Anyone who knows me would say that few things make me happier than being outside in nature enjoying the beauty that surrounds us! So much World to explore...its exciting and humbling! Get out there and soak it in🌏
