Creating Beautiful

I love all things rusty, chippy, shabby, Frenchy, prairie, farmhouse chic...I sometimes wonder if its weird that I scour the sides of the road for possible treasures like old barn wood, a rusty bucket, or maybe an old crate! I've stopped to rescue items more than once!

Painting furniture is one of my passions, after 17 years of marriage, my husband has finally come to terms with the fact that its not a sin to paint wood!

I paint my furniture using my own homemade chalk paint and I just love the results! I don't sell my furniture in my Etsy shop yet...but I'm thinking of giving it a shot in the near future. I mostly sell my small creations and vintage finds on Etsy and my furniture i sell flea markets throughout the year...& I love, love, love it! I'm constantly looking for ways to improve my shop presentation, right now I'm working on improving my branding materials!

I sell my work at flea markets throughout the year, I was just at the Funky Junk Sisters Vintage Flea Market, in the fall I do the Barnstormer Farm Vintage Fair, and I am a vendor at French Flea Market's throughout the summer. My schedule is posted on Takin' Time's facebook page. If your not yet a follower I would love if you'd join me there! I'm always sharing ideas, inspiration, my newest creations, as well as occasional giveaways and coupons for my Etsy shop!

I also have a blog where you can get to know me even better. I post about my crazy life, DIY tutorials, and more!

My goal is to continue to grow my business in doing what I love to do! I appreciate each and every customer, as they are a part of helping me reach those goals♥
