Hi! I’m Jamie. Since you’ve happened to click on the “about me” page, I’ll tell you a little about myself! I’ve been married to my husband Kyle for 3 years. We have two daughters. Clara will turned 2 in January and her baby sister Quinn is 6 months old. I used to work part time as an OB nurse at a local hospital but now I stay home with our babies. I’m a follower of Christ and enjoy sharing my faith with others. We attend an awesome church in town called Trinity Baptist and we absolutely love it. If you’re in the area and are searching for a church to belong to, check them out by clicking here. I’ve lived in Walla Walla , Washington (maybe you’ve heard of it?) all of my 28 years of living and I can’t imagine calling another place home. My husband and his parents own a Real Estate company here in Walla Walla so if you’re also wanting to enjoy living in this incredible town, you can check out their website!
When I’m not chasing after my little June-bug or vacuuming the dog hair off the wood floors (a daunting daily task) I like doing anything creative. My Grandma taught me to knit when I was just 5 years old so that’s always been a hobby of mine. Over the last several years I’ve developed the hobby of flipping furniture! It’s become my most favorite hobby since cutting back my work hours to stay home. When the babies go down for a nap I go out to the garage and start sanding, stripping, painting, sealing, etc. It’s my time to get some fresh air and be creative. It can be a lot of work and some furniture projects are a lot harder than others but when I’m finished, there is such a great sense off accomplishment. When the final coat of Polyurethane has dried, I start to get an addicting adrenaline rush to stage it, snap a 100 photos and post them online to sell!
Since I’ve started flipping I’ve received a lot of requests from friends and strangers for directions on how to refinish some of their own furniture. I’m more than happy to explain all the details and supplies needed to refinish a great piece of furniture! After receiving so many requests I decided to start a blog where I can post all the work I do with detailed tutorials to make it easier for those of you who decide you want to exercise your creativity! My hope is that you can find this blog to be inspiring and also help answer some of the questions you may have. I find so much joy and satisfaction from turning something ugly and dated into something modern and beautiful and I hope some of you will too! If you have questions about a tutorial please leave a comment and I will do my best to get back to you. Since my super fancy workshop is an unfinished garage with no heat and one lightbulb, flipping furniture is pretty seasonal work for me so I’m sure I will post other things on the blog as well!
Happy flipping everyone!
