Hey there, I'm Lyn!

For as long as I can remember I have been drawn to objects that have survived generations of use and have stories to tell. I probably inherited that from my mom. I stored my childhood treasures – vintage hankies, marbles and paperweights – in an old school desk complete with a hole for the inkwell. I have loved learning my craft and it is part of my mission to teach others so that they, too, may find joy in DIY furniture makeovers.
