Back after a LONG Hiatus.
I've been very busy, which is a very bad excuse for not being here. One of the things I vowed is that I would make a much bigger effort to keep up to date on my blog. Please help me keep this vow. I'm holding you (as well as me) accountable. K? Now that we ...

My roadside find...almost finished.
Last week I went to a town wide sale. (gotta love those town wides)  But shortly after leaving and grabbing my coffee I saw this sad sad dresser on the side of the road with a big ole sign that said FREE! Of course I had to stop!  The Veneer was lifting on ...

Old stereo redo.
Remember all those old stereo's? You know, the long ones that sat in everyones living rooms? This obviously is not the one I picked up...but you get the idea.  Most are no longer working, and if they were, who still has 8 track tapes or records?  So I never...

Saving history one piece at a time. My tribute.
I am a total lover of history.  And I believe with my whole heart that as much of history should be passed on from one generation to the next.  So today I'm telling you a story.  Not just of a piece of furniture, but of the lives it has touched.   This is a...

Art Deco Buffet......she's done!
 Cute right? Love the lines and that glass is to drool for. See the veneer missing? But what's that peeking out from under the veneer? Solid wood? yup!  So out came the hot iron and some wet rags and the work began. All the veneer was stripped off. Sanded a...

My caotic life.
I'm not sure if I'm busier on week days or weekends. A lot of my clients show up in the evening or on weekends. I do my running around during the day, and once in a while I spend an evening at the studio to catch up on work I couldn't do during the day. The...

High Gloss White and a wacky story.
Some days I feel like my life is a soap opera. You know the TV shows that everyone's mom used to watch.  Does anyone watch those things anymore? Are they even on TV anymore?  I'm going to try to cut this story down a bit. But lets start with this.  I bought...
