Hello and welcome to my little corner of the blog world…
My name is Lisa and this page is all about my business named…
The Purple Hydrangea…
I started this journey almost 3 years ago after I took a furniture painting workshop one Saturday afternoon and immediately fell in love with furniture rehab.
I came home and announced to my husband that I was going to start painting furniture. I set up a “studio” in my garage and the rest as they say is history.
Why The Purple Hydrangea?
I tossed around several names for my business like Furniture Spa and Painted Pieces by Lisa but I wasn’t in love with either one. I remembered one of the very first shows about house flipping I ever watched was about two sisters who started a business called, “The Tattered Hydrangeas.” I wish I thought of it first.
Since I didn’t, I chose The Purple Hydrangea. It combines two things I love; the color purple and hydrangeas. Hydrangeas to me are vintage and timeless. They make me smile when I see them. I hope the things I create bring that same feeling to you.
So why start a blog?
If you told me 3 years ago I would be writing a blog, I would have laughed at you for many reasons like…
- I am not a professional writer
- I am technologically challenged (you have no idea how challenged)
- I am not a professional photographer
But I decided none of those reasons mattered because these reasons were bigger…
- I am passionate about painting furniture
- I have learned a lot since I started this business
- I want to share what I know with you (once a teacher, always a teacher)
So here I am learning as I go and I am thrilled that you took the time to read this or anything else I have written.
I hope you will visit often.
Ciao for now!
