Funky Furniture

If you read my blog regularly,
you know I'm in kind of a transition stage in my life right now.

For the last 4 1/2 years , I owned a Curves franchise.
Last year , I started a second hand home decor store in the same building to try to supplement my income.
It wasn't really going the direction I wanted it to anymore.

I put my building up for sale this spring and I feel very fortunate that I was able to sell it.
Friday, the deal was complete.
No more Curves .
No more store.
It was a bittersweet day.
But I feel good about it .

My best sellers at my store were my repurposed furniture peices.
I don't use chalk paint like a lot of people,
( although I really want to try it soon )
and don't often distess my peices.
( I do sometimes )

I find my furniture at sales and thrift stores.
This is going to sound weird,
( if you've been here long , you know I'm kinda weird )
I let the piece speak to me ,
( told you .... weird )
Sometimes they say "make me berry pink ".

How cute is that owl fabric ?

Or ...
"put sripes on me ".

" I should be moss green and have a matching side table."

" I'm feeling a little aqua today" ...

I love color !
And apparently so do other people!

I found a store that wanted to sell my funky furniture for me.
I've taken two truck loads and sold several peices already.

My transition seems to be off to a good start!
