Every time i step into "my shop" - the living & dining room in my house. (i don't live there thank god- no room) i say to myself that i will NOT go on kijiji anymore... not even to just look! But what happens as soon as i leave the stacked up unpainted furniture, i talk myself into just looking at kijiji or just stopping at a thrift store and once AGAIN something followed me home... honest it did! I almost bought one a while back from kijiji but two sisters who were selling it didn't talk to each other apparently and the cabinet i thought i was picking up was already gone, i was so sad. Soooo when i saw my new beauty i felt i HAD to take it home, i mean i would have bought it ages ago already so really i wasn't bringing anything home that wasn't expected right ha ha yes this is my attempt at justifying it... good excuse yes? no? Anyway, here she is....my plan for her is some paint, some distressing, some chicken wire and a flat screen mounted above!
I am 36 years old and in October 2009 within 6 days i lost both of my jobs due to the economy. I know now (it took me a bit )that this was a sign - a way for me to do something BETTER and something that i didnt realize i would love so much. I have always loved antiques and my friends would say i love anything that looks "antiquey" - the older the better. I have learned that alot of people don't see the potential in an old, worn, ugly piece of furniture and alot of the time they just want it out of there life even if they have to give it away. So i have started a small hobby/business. I refurbish the furniture you can't bare to throw out or cant wait to get out and document the experience I have when bringing them back to life. This is how "painted whyte" was born.
