Several months ago, I came up with the crazy idea to start my own furniture refurbishing business. I started asking around on how to build a website when a friend of mine suggested I try a blog instead. BLOG? I didn’t even know WHAT a blog was, let alone how to DO one.
I did what I always do when I need information – I Googled it. I stumbled upon Blogger and immediately started designing my own layout. I’m still working on it every day and there’s a million things I’d improve upon if I had more time or money but at for least now, I get it. I’m officially – a blogger!
Never would I have imagined that my furniture designs would be showcased across the globe and in such a short period of time. In the past THREE weeks alone, our furniture has been featured THIRTEEN times by other designers and we’ve had more than 13 THOUSAND people view our posts. Wow! We are SO humbled. That being said, I have three more features to add to the list.
Angie at Knick of Time featured the purple ladder chair planter I made in lieu of a flower arrangement when Sydney passed away.
I wrote the story about it last Tuesday when we all dressed up in purple and celebrated what would have been Syd’s 7th birthday. I’ll never erase the image of Kami wearing Syd’s HUMUNGOUS purple dress up hat as I walked into Olive Garden for lunch that day. How she ever made it through those doors is beyond me! It was a very touching moment as we all felt the entire spectrum of emotions simultaneously. Stop by and read Angie’s feature of Syd’s chair here.
Angie also recently featured our tall white highboy.
I like Angie, not because she’s featured our furniture, but because she just seems so cool, so real. She designs some really neat furniture and has a neat shop on Etsy where she also sells all sorts of unusual vintage finds that time has left it’s mark on. Check out her shop here.
Sarah from Three Boys has been a DIY’er since she was a little girl. She has a great blog covering many different facets and like me, as a little girl, is the queen of organizing. I however have lost that gift over the years. Hmm!
I’d love to have Sarah move in for a week and shape me up again! I just realized she’s right here in Michigan – wahoo! Anyway… Sarah just featured our Red Buffet post (if you haven’t seen the amazing transformation on this piece, you’ll want to check it out here).
And last, but in no way shape or form least is Amy and Emily of Sisters of the Wild West.
Sisters of the Wild West surprised me Sunday morning as I fired up the computer. They are currently featuring the lady’s vanity I just finished; read the entire post on this beautiful vanity here.
Amy and Emily are a sister duo who are multi-talented. These gals can do ANYTHING! Check out their site and read their feature on my vanity here.
