There’s a lot of folks in blogland writing about the joys of painting and refurbishing furniture. Most of the posts I read portray beautiful photographs of furniture and rooms that could be pulled straight out of a design magazine.
I love painting furniture, but I find it a constant struggle to organize all the revolving
clutter eh-hem, furniture & supplies. I’m guessing, I’m not the only one. If you’re a project oriented type of person, you probably find yourself in a mess from time to time.
It seems to creep up on you like a tsunami and before you realize it, your whole world is turned upside down. I’ll be the first to admit I’m the source of most of the messes in our home. Many of them are related to the furniture painting business I started last year. There is always an array of furniture taking up valuable space in our garage.
My VERY tiny workshop is bursting at the seams. I have such a limited amount of space I can barely turn around. Did I mention I’m severely ADHD?
My time is divided between hunting for furniture, painting pieces for the space I rent at the store, painting custom furniture for clients at home, hauling things to the store, creating price tags, printing labels, photographing furniture, re-sizing and downloading photos, writing blog posts, shipping paint, scheduling jobs, ordering supplies, paying bills, answering phone calls, emails and blog replies…. and that doesn’t even account for my responsibilities as a wife and mother of young ones.
My days start before the sun comes up and I work till I collapse, sometimes into the wee hours of the next morning. Because I’m so exhausted at the end of the day, I end up putting away only what I absolutely have to which means I wake up to a mountain a little bit larger than it was the day before.
I have a lot of projects in the works and some fabulous pieces patiently waiting their turn, let me know if there is something you’re looking for or if you have a piece of furniture you would like painted.
