Here is a list of the things I love: my family, my pets, my friends, coffee, my JOB. After so many years working in the corporate world doing things I didn’t really care about, I am now lucky enough to include my job in this short list of the things I love.
I’ve been painting furniture for over 3 years now and I REALLY enjoy what I do. When I’m not painting or taking care of my home and family, I am browsing beautiful pieces by other artists, researching new techniques, writing on this blog, facebooking, Instagraming (I’m sure this is a verb already) or pinning about furniture. It’s an addiction and an obsession. I feel that certain days my two boys and husband seriously consider running away if they hear me say the “f” word one more time. (In my house, the “f” word means furniture).
One of my favorite things is to find an ugly, beat-up piece and give it a huge makeover, but lately I’ve been too busy working on custom orders. It is OK too. My customers have a great taste and some of them trust me enough to let me try different colors and techniques sometimes. It is very rewarding.
If your are in Northern Virginia or Metro DC area, I will be happy to talk to you about your project.
I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I do! I love to hear your impressions, opinions, and questions.
Thanks for reading!
