One day I was sanding a piece of furniture down (when I'm sanding & painting & listening to music I do a lot of thinking). I was thinking "Wow! How lucky am I to give this piece of furniture a second chance for someone to love by putting a little bit of my heart and soul into it." Then it made me think about my life and how it lead me to refinishing furniture & how lucky I was to get a second chance at my own life. You see in 2015 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and God gave me a second chance which lead me to follow and conquer my dreams. I really love being creative, its been a part of me all my life. The second chance I got made me realize that I need to follow my dreams and passion. I didn't know that finding a piece of furniture on the side of the road and refinishing it would eventually lead me to my passion and what God intended for me all along. Which in turn lead me to a business I absolutely love!
I enjoy taking a piece that needs a little TLC or updating & redesigning and transforming it into something new and fresh, a treasure for someone to love. Who doesn't love a before and after? I know I do. I am always so excited to see the potential that a piece has and how the piece is going to turn out. I enjoy looking at Pinterest to keep up on trends and ideas of new things to try. My goal is to design a piece of furniture into a new piece that I hope you can love now and for generations to come. I try my hardest to complete each piece as if it were for my own home.
My finished pieces have ended up in nursery's, Airbnb's, businesses, different states and maybe even in your own home.
I am so grateful for all the people and opportunities I have come in contact with on this journey. I am so lucky and blessed to have such a supportive husband and daughter who are my biggest cheerleaders and who help me behind the scenes be it with the finances or picking up pieces of furniture.
Gods second chance gave me the opportunity to express who I am, to be who I was meant to be and do what I truly enjoy.
What a beautiful life!
