  • WELCOME to House of Rumours…

    Hi! I'm Ruthie and I'm in love with every aspect of design. Everything from contemporary design to rustic decor to modern industrial builds! I don’t care what it is, I LOVE IT ALL!!

    I dream at night of my next project, whether its a new wall finish, building or painting a piece of furniture or tackling an entire room makeover. I ABSOLUTELY love metallics & shine and therefore try to incorporate a little “bling” in all that I do.

    I offer interior design consultation and custom refinishing work here in here AZ. Feel free to contact me for an estimate!

  • Trisa - Great job! do you have any idea where she got the fabric for the chairs? or the name of the fabric?ReplyCancel

  • Keila Drum - Hi,

    My question is regarding the Amelia Dining set you did a little over a year ago, 5/1/15 to be more precise. I read you painted the chairs white and put on stain over them? Is that what you did? My table and chairs are exactly this color…the orangy looking wood, and this is the exact look I’m going for. Would you mind telling me how you got the white with the black (or dark streaks) showing?
    Did you sand it or just painted it white?
    I appreciate your time in advance, thanks!

    • Ruthie - I painted it white, but I didn’t paint into the cracks or crevices. Then after it dried I used an antiquing glaze (instructions should be on the bottle) to give it an aged lookReplyCancel

And the winner is . . . C’mon, you knew I wouldn’t announce it at the beginning of the post!!! Scroll to the bottom (after reviewing the post of course 😉 ) and see who the winner is! SPECIAL THANKS TO ROYAL DESIGN STUDIO! ———– Hi Y’all! Didn’t want you waiting too long to see […]
