Tell us about your business.I believe that everyone deserves a beautiful home, no matter what the budget. I started Project Home after seeing a need for affordable design. Something that do it yourselfers could get involved in without a big budget. I began searching for thrift store items that I could up cycle for my own home, and ended up helping a lot of friends who were also remodeling their homes. I now offer e-consults, DIY classes and sell re-finished product on Etsy. I would love grow the business and start a local magazine in my area on thrifting, DIY ideas, gardening, health, etc. I would also like to offer additional DIY classes for young couples or new home re-modelers and continue to grow my blog.
What makes your business stand out?There are so many pieces out there that are made of solid, sturdy wood, and are just being tossed away in favor of new items. I believe that we have a responsibility to our environment, history and ourselves to take what's already made and create a new, unique piece of furniture. It's an affordable and responsible way to remodel and still maintain our social responsibility.
What's the best business advice you've received?Be yourself... Create what you know and trust your instincts.
