Hi my name is Sandra. I started painting furniture when my boyfriend and I moved into our first home together. There were so many more expenses than we had imagined. We bought a few new furniture pieces and spent all of our budget on only furnishing our living room. So the rest of the house was bare. I love to decorate and entertain so having a bare home for me was not an option since I love to host parties and dinners. Our solution was to shop at thrift stores and to find old furniture to paint. When our home became fully furnished I couldn't stop buying furniture and painting them.
