Hi There! Thank you for visiting my blog! I am truly happy that you are here. My name is Tonya and I am the one woman team behind Delyla Design. You may ask why is your business named Delyla Design if your name is Tonya? We’ll I’m not sure I have a great answer for that but I will try. Honestly I just really like the name Delyla, I think it’s pretty and romantic! Also to me the name represents a creative, strong renaissance women full of passion for beauty and life. She’s not afraid to roll up her sleeves and do the dirty work! She likes to be surrounded by pretty things and has to express her creative side in life. I aim to be this woman every day!!!!
I started Delyla Design in 2012 as a hobby. When my husband and I bought our first home I wanted to bring my artistic creative flair to it. I have always loved vintage furniture but liked to update and add a modern twist with fun paint colors or fabric. The sofa in the picture above is one of the first pieces that I created. It’s an Edwardian antique sofa that I had upholstered with a stripe and damask in colorful coordinating colors. I love that kind of thing!!! Can you find my sweet little Sophie in the photo? She’s always right there with me!
Anyway, I started my business with a booth in an antique mall in Charlotte, NC. I really enjoyed finding unique items and giving it the Delyla touch. It was always such a great feeling when people would buy my items and you knew that they loved them too! As you may well know once you enter the world of DIY, Vintage, Pickin and Repurposing there’s really no going back. You are hooked!!!! Can you relate?
I have been painting furniture, blogging, DIYing and crafting for over the years now and I love every minute of it!!!
I was introduced to Paint Couture in 2014! I fell in love with the product and I became a distributor shortly after that. I was in the very first distributor meeting and am very happy to this day to be a part of an amazing product and company.Visit my online shop here.
I teach furniture painting & crafting workshops locally and offer custom furniture and cabinet painting.
