It’s Been Charmed
My name is Charmaine, and I am the owner and artist of It’s Been Charmed. I love to find quality vintage and antique furniture and give it a new life with a fresh look. I do some custom refinishing and painting, but for the most part I paint the furniture the way the furniture speaks to me. I love colour! I believe that every home needs a statement piece of furniture that adds brightness and vibrancy to the decor.
I’m just tickled that many of my pieces are on television or in the movies. I’ve sold my work to Disney, Hallmark and Marvel. Pieces that I’ve created can be seen in series like Charmed, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, The Republic of Sara, and most recently, a remake of Turner and Hooch.
I am based in beautiful Abbotsford, B.C. I work mostly from home, with my dog Cola always by my side. He just loves to model when I’m staging my pieces. I rent a storage unit In Abbotsford that I have set up like a little store.
I was delighted when I was invited to exhibit in the prestigious Pacific Arts Market in Vancouver. I always have four or five pieces of furniture on display there, along with with painted jewelry boxes and other artwork I make. Recently I’ve really gotten into resin art, and love to create coasters, trays, wall art, and other trinkets.
Now available at the Pacific Arts Market, and on my Facebook page, are the luscious DIY Paint from Debi’s Design and the fabulous Paint Pixie brushes. In the near future I hope to offer some painting workshops.
