Boonsboro, MD, US

A marketing major turned interior designer, turned vintage furniture and home goods busniness owner! At an early age my love of creating emerged. I learned to sew at age 5.....I wouldn't leave my mothers Singer alone. So, either teach me to use it or watch a pre-schooler destroy it! That was the beginning of the end! I have never looked back and theres not a project I won't attempt.

Famous last words.....how hard can it be??? Gets me into fabulous jams and crises on a daily basis. I am inlove with power tools and have no fears! According to my wonderful husband, a truly dangerous woman!

Re: Vintage Wall Mirror End Table

I found the column about a year ago and just dropped it in the barn like so many of my salvage finds. It had a screw hole in the top so I wonder if it had a round top on it....for sure, it doesn't have a mirror!!!
