My name is Samantha Monell. Native of Fort Collins, Colorado and now living in Denver, CO with my loving husband and best friend TJ. I have two great kids, Jaiden 5 and Avalon 18 months and recently just bought a house in August of 2012. I graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Animal Science and my real job is working in quality assurance, but my dream job is redesigning and restoring furniture and just being crafty.
I’ve decided to start a blog in order to feed my inspiration as well as to connect with others who are experienced and wise in their trade. I’m not going to pretend to know everything there is to know about furniture restoration, but rather give a honest approach to my new adventure. I also have a goal of creating beautiful home decor with a tight budget in mind, as everyone knows that young families usually don’t have a lot of money. Being that this is our first home I want to make it feel like a home, but on a realistic budget. I’m looking at this challenge as an adventure and inspiration.
