Since this is my very first blog post ever, I guess I should start with a bit of an introduction. I live in Chicago with my husband, Kyle and our Golden Retriever, Lucy. If I later on refer to The Goose…she’s who I’m talking about. Why? Because she’s a goose, and she’s as sweet as they come…and by sweet I mean crazy. Anyways, about a year ago I was watching Rehab Addict on HGTV. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the show, it’s amazing! Nicole, the host, is not only inspiring and creative, she’s also hilarious. While watching her refurbish an old piece of furniture I thought to myself, “I can do that!” It just clicked, this is what I want to do! So, with the unwavering support and motivation from Kyle, I’ve spent these past six months figuring out how I can turn this interest into a business. I started buying pieces of furniture off Craigslist and teaching myself new techniques. I’m not going to lie, I think some of the stuff has turned out pretty cool! Check out my gallery for some of the recent pieces I’ve finished. I’m still in the beginning stages, but can’t wait to really dive into this new phase of my life!
