My passion for making old things new again began when, after months of searching, I could not find the furniture/decor that I had pictured in my head for my newly painted living room. I decided to grab a paint brush and see what I could do with my old furniture that I planned on getting rid of. I figured, if I messed it up it wouldn't matter because I didn't want it anymore anyway. No one was more surprised than me when what I was doing actually looked great. One by one, room by room, I "re-created" just about every shelf, desk, lamp, table, etc. in my house. The time has come that I have run out of items and places in my home to put them, but my love for painting and creating remains. I have now begun gathering items from local thrift shops and transforming them into new creations. I love being able to reduce waste by using items that would otherwise have been trash, while supporting local thrift shops as well as my painting habits at the same time. I have found a true passion and would love nothing more than to become a vendor and share my "re-creations" with my community.
