I launched Blue-Eyed Sparrow in August of 2012 in San Antonio, Texas after thinking of ways to try my hand at a small business where I could use my gifts and make it worthwhile. After much thought and brainstorming with my husband, I woke up one day and had an aha moment. The one thing I grew up with, the craft I’m most comfortable with could make for a great business! Not to mention all of my own pieces I’ve repurposed in our home – why not do it for others?
I used to hover around my father as a young girl watching him in his woodworking business. For years, he pursued this love. He spent many hours bringing wood to life, antiques to their original beauty, and little by little he would teach me tips and tricks. Although, my father would probably be horrified to know I have no problem painting an antique.
So the journey began and the business has done real well. I’ve custom painted over a 200 furniture pieces so far and have had the privilege of working with dozens of fantastic customers. My goal is to make every customer a raving fan!!! It’s been a joy bringing smiles to friends and new friends as I’ve added a splash of color and style to their furniture. It seems like most customers enjoy my custom furniture painting service as it allows them to share in the creativity, but frees them from the challenging work. No matter your style: vintage, shabby chic, cottage, eclectic, mid century modern, west elm or anthropologie inspired – I can create the look you’re envisioning.
I’ve found there is so much family history to hold on to and retell in a furniture piece. With a simple repurpose, you can add new life to your home and have a story to tell your friends.
Blue-Eyed Sparrow also offers repurposed furniture for sale. In all our services, you’ll discover warm friendliness, creativity and quality work.
Oh and by the way, if you need a great handyman my husband does great work. His name is Ted and his company is DoneRightHandyman.Today
Look forward to working with you!

The desk looks Amazing!!! But I didn’t expect any less coming from you based on your previous work for us. I’m so glad we asked you to work on it and so thankful you took the time to do such a beautiful job. We will completely enjoy this desk for years to come.
Thank you for working on my furniture!!! I also wanted to thank you for praying for me.
I am really thrilled about the piece I purchased at The Helotes MarketPlace and thank you so much for the giveaway.
Thank you so much for making Greyson’s nursery a room I want to spend forever in. You are uber talented and it comes through in all your hard work.
I’m writing you this with so much happiness! I absolutely love my rehabbed statement piece for the nursery. I’m so pleased with your work, your pricing, and the speed in which the project was done. I’d like to thank you and your husband for dropping off the dresser today, it’s perfect!
