Crazy Little Artwork
Later on it would be a dog, a chewed couch and my desire to conserve the environment that would truly launch me into a successful career.
And that urge - that desire to make things with my hands - didn't fall short of my adult life.
After making my way in the Commercial Real Estate Industry I made the decision that I wanted something more...I wanted to have FUN!
I longed to start my own furniture RE-Creation company. where I'd take someone's current furniture and turn it into a work of art.
I started small, by going to yard sales, and buying old furniture- things that were "no good" to someone else, always proved to be PERFECT for me.
I began to pay attention to those appliances which are thrown out daily but still have life in them.
I turned my attention to furniture that has 18 years of life in its past.
- Realizing that as a recreation each of those 18-year-old pieces of furniture could have 18 more years and look even cooler than it did before.
I wrote my business plan and managed to do everything required to keep my company afloat.
I also started small doing everything on a cheap/free level:
- Getting furniture, old fabric, and paints off craigslist, and turning a profit on free items.
You can buy a fridge anywhere...but you can't get one with a mural across it.
