How it all started:
One Christmas season, I was in the mood for a change, and I had a retail desk job and wanted something more. When I Went for my annual trip to the Markham Craft show, the only thing that was different from every other year I had went, was that I was suddenly inspired. I went home and I was up until 1 in the morning looking at blogs after blogs on vintage, Antique and refinished products, Hundreds of videos on how to refinish, sand and paint. I was in love, but knew that it wasn’t going to be as easy as it looked. I then promised myself, that if I finished one project and it went well, that it was something I would pursue, and well, the rest is history. I hope you enjoy my products as much I enjoyed finding them, refinishing them, and salvaging them.
