Q: How did you get into painting furniture?
My sister, Cindy Lewis Bonneur, introduced me to chalk paint in 2012 and we took a course together. That was all it took to spark that creative side in me again. I began redoing furniture for friends and family at that point, and wanted to make a business out of it. The two reasons for this business, my life’s work moving in a different direction, and changing the life of the furniture that I work on, came together and This Life Goes On LLC was born.
Rhonda: I’d have to say my favorite piece to date is the dresser that I did for my niece. It is a very meaningful piece to her, as it is has a picture of her on her horse on it doing what she is the best in the world at and it was a new challenge for me in doing a decoupage treatment of that size.
Q: What is your #1 tip for painting furniture?
Rhonda: My #1 tip for painting furniture is to just dive in and have fun! If it doesn’t turn out as one thought it would, it can always be painted again (and I have had many).
Q: What do you do when your not painting?
Rhonda: When I’m not painting, I admin for The Artisan Markets, do bookwork for my husband’s business and watch my niece’s little girl. In the summer I enjoy some time sitting out on our porch visiting with family and friends. My husband and I like to travel, so we try to take a couple of vacations each year.
