It seems like I've always had a dream of doing something that I love, and turning it into my own small business. As you've seen here for the past 2+ years, I've been doing my own furniture makeovers, and I've discovered that I really love doing them!
How Did I Start?After Christmas, Ed & I decided to clear out some of the excess furniture. I began by placing ads on Craigslist, and on about 10 Facebook sites in my area. I sold the Farmhouse Coffee Table; Glider Rocker & ottoman; a small blue cabinet; the Art Deco Vanity Desk, and even my prized Pallet Bench, and Pallet Console Table! Parting with the last 2 items was a little difficult, but I am so glad that they both went to nice families.
Is it scary to start a small business?Well, yes it can be a little scary! Steffanie told me about Christy Wright's Business Boutique website, which I have been reading faithfully; I'm also listening to Christy's podcasts and I've pre-ordered her book! In addition, I'll be attending Christy's 1-Day Business Boutique Event in San Antonio in April! I'm excited to learn how to grow my business with Christy's tools and advice. Starting a small business can be made easier if you have the motivation, tools and encouragement of someone who has been there. If you are dreaming of turning a hobby into a small business, I encourage you to check out Business Boutique.
I currently have two new pieces that I'm working on for my business....the first is this sweet little round accent table. When I'm finished giving it a gentle "refresh", it will be for sale locally in Georgetown, Texas.
I take worn, well-loved furniture and give it a fresh look for today's casual, comfortable home. I specialize in Farmhouse-style, shabby-chic and country styles.
