They say humans are the only mammals that don’t hibernate. I disagree because I’ve been in “hibernation” for the past year! I took a break from my blog and the business to try and re-evaluate my goals and figure out what direction to take. A year later, and I’m still not 100% sure. Baby steps tho. Baby steps.
One of the main reasons for my hiatus was that it just became overwhelming. As most of you know, I have a regular, full-time job that I work at Monday through Friday. Furniture is my side hustle, and while I LOVE doing it, it just became too much like working TWO full time jobs, on top of being a wife and mother. For that reason, I put things on hold and took a step back. I’m slowly trying to ease back into it.
2019 brought a big change in the Bryson/Wilbanks household in that my oldest son, Marshall; moved into his own home. I only cried for about 3 days, but any sadness was washed away by how proud I am of him! He and his stepdad worked sooo hard to renovate his great-grandmother’s home and turn it into a cute little 2 bed/2 bath for Marshall and his long-time girlfriend, Cailyn. Of course I offered my fabulous design skills and can honestly say it turned out great!! It’s such a cute starter home for them and I know they’ll be happy there for many years to come!
Here’s a few pics of pieces I painted for them.
I found these heavy, solid wood pieces for a steal. A fresh coat of paint and they were perfect for Marshall’s farmhouse themed bedroom!
