What inspires me to start creating is the look and feel of clean lines, bright colors and practicality. I am always on the hunt for a piece of furniture begging to be re-done or a piece of canvas I can paint over and turn into my own custom wall décor.
My best advice for home décor is to never, ever pay full price for anything! Also always look items you can turn into something chic and fabulous to make it truly unique.
My favorite furniture piece is my coffee table. It was a $10 find that had a lot of damage to the top. I stripped the top off and added wood boards that I stained with a lovely dark cherry stain. The drawers had a rattan front that I removed and added the same stained wood to match. This piece gets the most compliments!
My hobbies are re-finishing furniture, thrifting, photography, drawing, art running and fitness.
