What I Love
My favorite products to use are Annie Sloan ChalkpaintTM and General Finishes Gel Stains. I love a variety of styles which keeps things interesting for me when I create. I feel truly blessed to have found something I absolutely love that has turned into a business of which I am very proud!
As a former teacher, I knew when I had children, I wanted to be able to stay home with them as long as possible. ... After the birth of my first child in 2004, that meant I had to find ways to save money and get creative! Then, my second two children came along, and I found myself elbow deep in craft projects and all things D-I-Y. Eventually, I inherited two reclining tufted chairs and decided, after many hours watching YouTube videos while waiting for my daughter at the dance studio, to try re-covering them myself. The next thing I knew, I had people asking me to do big projects for them and, since I also enjoyed organizing, making wreaths and wooden signs, and making older furniture look beautiful again, a business was born in 2014 and it seemed only fitting to name it MY HOME MATTERS. Now, all three of my children are in school all day, and I am on a mission to balance doing honest, quality work with remaining involved with my children’s schools and activities while they are still young enough to want me there!
