I grew up watching my grandpa build cabinets. I can remember sweeping his shop and being so fascinated by the things he was creating. My mom, being a cabinet builders daughter, was very crafty. I can remember her reupholstering our couch, stripping our great grandmothers ugly yellow piano down to the wood so we could stain it. She redid our table and I remember hunting with her for the perfect chairs to go with our new table. My dad is an electrical engineer so if anything broke he could fix it. Now let me tell you a little bit about my husband, Devin. His father owned a wood mill, all growing up Devin would go to work with his dad and help around the shop. He also learned a few tricks of the trade when it comes to finish work. In September of 2011 when Devin and I bought our current home. It was in need of lots of fixing, but we were up for the challenge. We were on a tight budget and doing it ourselves made it possible for us to live in the area we wanted. As we began to remodel we realized how much we fell back on the things we had learned growing up, and I realized I LOVED this!! I also started refinishing furniture to fill our new home. As my neighbors and friends saw my furniture they asked me to redo their pieces and what started out as a hobby soon turned into a full time job.
I have tried all sorts of different types of paints, products, top coats etc. and for the last 5 years my kids have been putting them to the test. Through experimenting I have found products that hold up best against my kids. I have found the paints I like best on accent pieces and home accessories. With our home remodel we have found things we love and others that we will never do again, and we want to share them with you!
