I had such a fun time Saturday at the Pacific NW Organizing EXPO! I met some really great people and had wonderful conversations on how I might be able to help them not only feel more organized but to be able to enjoy their homes more. Whether you are someone who enjoys design and decorating or if your gifts and talents are in another area, it seems that everyone can use a fresh set of eyes from time to time to look at their furniture, artwork and accessories. After all, you see them every day and most likely have seen them for many years. We become very accustomed to our belongings. Many people think that they have ugly or outdated furnishings and that's why they don't like their room. Most often, it's just that there are other ways to set up the room to make it not only look appealing but function better for their families needs. There are actual "rules of thumb" that people in the design business know about because of our training and hours of research. I could literally spend hours each day looking at decor blogs and websites that have to do with design. I NEVER get tired of it. Want to know something really strange? I dream it! I kid you not. There are times that I wake up and I'm ready to tackle a project and I know just what color to paint the walls, etc. except that I realize that it was just a dream. Call that weird, maybe to much time "researching" right before bed, but it's seriously in my blood.
I've got some great jobs lined up for the next week and a half and I'll be sure to post about them so that I can share my passion with you.
Oh and also, I went to the Salvation Army's 1/2 price sale today and scored a cute little table, a desk and some smaller items that need some love. I'll be sure to share my process of refinishing those items with you as well in case you need some inspiration on any projects you may be holding off on doing!
