For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn towards creative activities. When I was a little girl, playing Barbie’s meant organzing and decorating the Barbie house to look beautiful but never actually playing with the dolls. I excelled in art and music classes in high school and graduated college with a music degree. As an adult living on my own for the first time, I wanted to have a decorated home worthy of a magazine cover. Of course my budget was significantly smaller than those homes that graced the covers of my favorite magazines. My very first home project was painting my kitchen cabinets and the wood paneling…a lot of wood paneling.
A few years ago my husband and I bought a house that needed a lot of updating and that was much larger than our previous home. Being DIY-er’s, we were excited for the process but had a lot more extra space to fill. It only took me a few trips to the furniture stores to realize not only did I not want to pay the prices of new furniture but that the furniture I was finding wasn’t of the greatest quality. I found myself on more than one occasion saying “I could build that.” So one day, I did.
And so it began.
I’ve now built a business painting life back into old pieces of furniture, building new pieces, and creating beautiful spaces for client’s homes. I contine to experiment with new techniques and advancing my skills as an artist and creator to bring my clients the latest trends in home design. I’m so blessed to be able to be a stay at home mom to my beautiful children while having a business doing something I love more and more with each project I complete.
