Hi. Welcome to my little corner of the interwebs. My name is June. I’m a mom and wife, I play violin, I love furniture, paint, thrift stores, great deals, and coffee. I slam on the brakes and U-turn for garage sales. I dislike boob lights and popcorn ceilings. This is mostly a chronicle of my furniture builds and refinishes and a little of my DIY pursuits to de-uglify my 1970s era home, along with an occasional diversion.
I have a wonderful husband who took a chance on me by letting me buy a bunch of paint, lumber, and power tools, and hasn’t looked back, and I have a cute kid who’s the happiest person I know. Life is busier with him but I wouldn’t trade him for anything.
My favorite kinds of mornings are ones spent on my back patio, watching my son play as I drink my coffee under my patio umbrella when it is not in the triple digits here in central Texas. I hope you’ll join me under the umbrella and sit a spell. Thanks for reading.
I would love to hear from you. Feel free to drop me a (nice) line.
