The Five Refinishers Entries
Hi! I’m Katie, owner of Katie & Co. Furniture Restorations. I paint and restyle vintage furniture and make soy candles and hand made signs. I painted my first piece of furniture eleven years ago and have been hooked on creating ever since! I have a small shop in Moville, Iowa where I sell my creations. My darling daughter who is five keeps me on my toes! I’m a lover of coffee, family, animals, food, country livin’ & all things vintage!
Lindsay has been married to her DIY sidekick for 17 years. She is also a mother or two. Since they bought their first home, Lindsay and her husband have been creatively decorating their home on a tight budget. Not being able to go into stores and buy things brand new created a passion for getting the same look for a lot less. Their DIY decor and repurposed projects got a lot of attention among family and friends which pushed Lindsay to start her blog, My Creative Days. Now, the budget-friendly projects continue, but they are shared with all her readers full time! She would love for you to head over to her blog or social channels and say, “Hi!”

I started The Ugly Duckling Decor after working as a corporate retail manager and hating it. I realized I only have one life to live and I should spend it doing what I love. The idea of being able to transform an old piece of “junk” into a usable and beautiful piece of furniture in your home started when I went to Virginia Tech and needed a cheap way to furnish my apartment room. Even as young as 6 years old, I enjoyed rearranging furniture and looking through JCPenny Bed and Home catalogs. My Mom would come home from work and all the furniture in the house would be moved around. I was always trying to make a room look better or used more efficiently. I never thought that I could turn those habits into a potential career.
