It's hard to believe, but it's been just over two years since I quit my 'day job' and dove into this new venture of refinishing furniture, blogging, decorating, etc. It took a bit of time to clean out all those cobwebs on the right side of my brain and flip the creativity switch on, but after two years, I think I'm going at full force.
