Hello and welcome to my new blog/site.

About me:  I am 43 years old and work full time.  I have 2 children, a husband and a Labrador! For a very long time I’ve thought about what my ideal job would be.  I’m really creative and full of ideas none of which felt clear enough to do anything with.

A few months ago I went to a local auction to look for something I could paint and use as a shoe cabinet.  I found the perfect item, placed a bid and won.  When I collected my lot I found a small table and an old child’s reading bench were part of it

I set to work sanding and painting the cabinet and was delighted with the results.  I then sanded the table and put it to good use.  So….what to do with the bench? I picked up 3 pastel paints from my local DIY store and set about repairing it (with the help of several blogs).  When it was done I put it on the Facebook Marketplace and it was sold within an hour.  I began to think…just maybe.

I went to auction again and found a beautiful drop leaf dining table.  I sanded, waxed, varnished and painted it.  I put it on Facebook Marketplace and it sold within a few hours.  Could I be on to something? Have I found my niche?  The thought of spending all day waist high in sawdust, old furniture and paint fills me with delight!

So, I’m taking a deep breath and putting all my spare time into reloving and upcycling. I’m going to see where it takes me.  Who knows, could I find myself in a position to work part time and follow my passion? Could my passion lead to something full time? Could I have my own business?  Is it do-able?
