Welcome to Top Drawer Art. I'm Lucia Blum and have over 19 years of experience with hand painting furniture, canvas, glass and other custom art pieces. For the past 10 years we have lived and worked here in Wilmington, NC where being surrounded by nature and the beach close by has been an extra influence in my work. I love bold colors and varied subjects but my style is flexible depending on you, the client. All work is painted here in my home studio.
Find that unique work of art here in my site or commission me to paint something to your specifications. I specialize in hand painted furniture art,and floorcloth art. Every piece is sanded down, primed, painted with acrylics and/or latex and sealed with polyurethane to endure years of good use. All work is signed.
Quotes are given on commissioned work depending on the amount of estimated time required, materials needed and shipping costs. A deposit or full payment is required before work begins and the balance due prior to shipping the final piece. You will be sent a photo of the finished work for your approval ahead of time. I strive to create a piece that meets with your satisfaction.
Web site items already sold can be painted as ordered and may take 2 to 4 weeks depending on my workload. All pieces will vary somewhat and are one of a kind. Salvaged furniture items can only have designs duplicated.
As a Christian artist I seek to glorify God with my work. Every piece I paint will have a Bible verse, or a cross somewhere on it (if the item's to small for a verse). It may be worked into the art or underneath. Custom orders can have a verse of your choosing painted on them. As a free agent I reserve the right to refuse any projects that I believe would compromise my beliefs or promote ideas that are contrary to my faith or mission as an artist.

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannnot see the kingdom of God.....That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I say unto thee, Ye must be born again. ~ John 3:3, 6&7.
Custom painted projects are always welcomed. I can paint your project according to fabric swatches you want matched and ideas you may have in mind., How much control you have over a project is up to you., I've recently learned how to weave new rush seats onto chairs whose seats need replacing. Give me your old chairs and see them transformed into a new creation; truly a trash to treasure. If you want to pick out a new piece to paint you can take a look at the web for unfinished furniture or go to the link below to get to

The work I do is a hobby and a labor of love. I will try to treat each piece with great care so it will last. However, I do not make any claims, or guarantees written or implied with regards to how well a piece will tolerate the use one may give it. Furniture is going to get dinged and painted furniture is going to chip if hit hard enough. Also, some painted woods are more resilient and forgiving than others.
I do not do any stripping or refinishing of furniture. There are many resource you may want to consult for simple furniture painting, faux finishing, shabby chic and refinishing.
My goal is to create livable functional art for others to enjoy.
I'm temporarily suspending business while I pack up my house and move. Business will resume mid October.
