First… The best perspective…
She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
~ Proverbs 31:18
Yesterday Dee officially started her new business – Hearth & Gate – ‘Repurposed, Renewed, Repainted Furniture and Decor’.
She has a booth at a store called Re-Invintage, less than five minutes from our home in Murfreesboro. This fascinating shop specializes in artistic crafts, signage, antiques, and unique pieces of refinished and repainted furniture – the very same things that Dee enjoys doing!
After consigning several pieces of her high quality work at Re-Invintage, Dee was invited by the owners to take over an empty booth, an opportunity she immediately accepted.
Here is an example of Dee’s work. This was a hideous twin bed headboard that we purchased at a thrift store for just $10:
With Dee’s vision for what this piece could become – and a few hours of her skill with paint, brush, and a few extras, here’s the result:
This is just one of many pieces of furniture (and other smaller items) that Dee has carefully and artfully prepared for Hearth & Gate at Re-Invintage. We thank the Lord for this opportunity and trust Him to bless this business opportunity… who knows where it will lead?
