The Top Ten Reasons Why I Love My "Job"

Hey all!  It's Kristin again.  I absolutely love what I do!  I am so blessed to be able to make money doing what I love.  I think of what I do as more than a hobby, it is my part-time job.  Here are the top ten reasons why I enjoy reclaiming furniture.  They are in no particular order.

1.  I get to stay home with my kids.  My 3-year-old daughter loves to help me sand and distress the furniture.  She is especially good at the distressing part. :)

2. I have my own special wardrobe:
One for summer...

and one for winter!

 3.   Every few months, I get to go on a "home decor" shopping spree.  I can't keep using the same items to stage my furniture, right?

4.  My garage floor is more colorful than yours! 
I used to cover the area with old boxes, but gave up once I spilled a gallon of primer on it.  :(

5.  Whenever I need to paint my toenails, I just work barefoot. 

6.  I love the high I get from finding a great piece of furniture for a great price.  I feel a rush of adrenaline whenever I drive by a good garage sale or am the first to call about a amazing deal on ksl.

7.  I get first dibs on the items I refinish.  I adore my kitchen table!

8.  The before and after is the best!  I like to imagine that I am giving an old, beat up piece of furniture 
another twenty years of life.

9.  Reclaiming furniture is a great workout!   My right arm is getting pretty buff from holding the spray gun and sanding/distressing.  I should really start using my left arm so I can even things out!

10.  I love a happy customer!  When the customer is happy, It makes everything I do worth while.  :)
