So where have I been???
Well I’ve been here at home, but trying to figure out just where I was going…let me start at the beginning!
I was happily making barn doors, trays, shelves, etc. out of distressed wood and blogging any of my design ideas, hoping to pass on anything that might spur the creative renovation bug in you.
Then it happened!! Probably around March I noticed my wrist was really killing me after working in my workshop. Of course I waited …hoping it would go away. Then finally, I went to the Dr. getting some pretty Sad news.
I have torn 3 ligaments in my wrist forever keeping me from doing any woodwork or renovations that took any wrist action! For EVER!! Well that’s pretty much everything I do!
So what to do? … Teach maybe ??
I was able to teach a class on Succulent Pumpkins and that was great fun but so seasonal and not something I could do all the time without it hurting my wrist.
So we focused on our house. I watched and pointed as Doug finished the exterior of our home. I got flooded with people asking how we did it and where we got the doors, wrapped the post, etc..
But I was not happy just pointing!! It hurt my wrist and I’m just not wired that way lol!
With the gentle nudging of my Doug and a dear friend and realtor Krissy Allen. I was encouraged to go back to something that I could still help people create. Their Dream Home!
Some may not know Doug and I were in Real Estate for over 14 years before retiring and going full on into woodworking.
So going forward I’ve decided to marry my decor flair with my Real Estate business. Here’s how it works. When you list a home with me, I will help you with staging and curb appeal to attract the best buyers. And if you are in the market to purchase a home, I can help you to see the potential in a property that others may pass up. So, Just Add Rust Home Decor is not dead at all, it has just been (Up-cycled) so to speak.
After a lot of research and prayer we decided to join a great team at Exit Alliance Realty. Never say never and you all heard me say I was retired, but when we learned of Exit Alliance Realty, we just couldn’t walk away. Oh by the way, I’ll be going by Lura and (Oise) to cover all bases with clients from the past 14 years
But does that mean I won’t share all I do in design?
Heck no…Christmas is coming!! I really feel I can do both…
Just Add Rust Home Decor is now
Just Add Rust At Home!!!
Our Real Estate Website is
just like before.
My goal is that if you plan to stay in your home for the foreseeable future, to keep you updated in the latest trends in home decor, color, and curb appeal. Lets have fun making it the best it can be, the home of your dreams!
If you are thinking about a change…give me a holler.
Staging is something I love to do and I would be glad to give you a consultation with no strings attached.
Until then…lets Decorate!!!
Stay tuned…fun Christmas designs to come…
