Fernandez Cleaning Service - Peoria, IL

I haven't done any posts about the small businesses we support lately I realized so today I am going to give a shout out to Fernandez Cleaning Service in Peoria, IL. I have worked offsite for the last several years in Peoria and for a few years now have employed the Fernandez'. They make my life a lot easier!

This family business has been serving the Peoria area for over 20 years and I recently helped them open up a website for the first time as the economic situation became pretty tough in 2020.

If you are in the Peoria area and are in the need of residential or business cleaning services, don't hesitate to give them a call or make a reservation through their website. 

I highly recommend this business.

Eastern Shore Chic - D. Lawless All Star

Today we highlight possibly the largest contributor to our website and our marketing success. Roberta from Eastern Shore Chic is one of the most prolific furniture artists in the country. She churns out over a piece a day! All custom work and all in a style that will go great with any number of home design themes. Stylish and classic is the order of the day for most people. While flashy bright pieces may get a bit more social media attention, creating a home where the furniture fits the rest of the motif is the most important thing.

Over the years I've discovered that Roberta goes about her work in a very "D. Lawless" style. Nothing flashy. Just high quality work built on a foundation of truly wanting to serve and help her clients. Thousands of homes across the Northeast feature work from Eastern Shore Chic and I'm sure thousands more to come.

Today I'll feature just a few of the pieces Roberta has finished over the last few months. Starting off with this gorgeous blue(ish) vanity using our popular ring pulls!

This next one is a perfect example of how Roberta can bring those old boring and possibly damaged pieces back to their former glory. This was the second set Roberta sent in this week! The pieces were boring and un-inspiring to say the least in the before photo, but the final result is wonderful and fit to be prominently featured in any bedroom.

And the before...

I could go on all day, but I'll leave more to see at Roberta's Facebook page. Please remember to click through to Eastern Shore Chic!

Roberta does custom work for old pieces you may have in your home, or can be on the lookout for a set if you contact her with your home needs. This next little set is entirely typical of her work and would be a fine addition (it already is) to any home. The wood stained top is beautiful and will accompany most styles of home decor wonderfully.

Thank you again to Roberta for all her great work and so graciously sharing the photography with us. She has been a customer for a long time and has truly become an asset to our business.  It gives me great joy to work so often with such talented and industrious people as Roberta. 

Please click through to Eastern Shore Chic and keep her in mind if you are in the border region between Maryland and Delaware. Roberta works out of Willards, MD but covers a wide area with her custom work.
