My name is Susan and I’m a Seattle mom and former nurse and attorney. After many years, I made the decision to leave the workplace and stay at home with my kids. Really, it was a no brainer for me. I left a demanding, stressful, pressure-filled job. I felt drained at the end of each day, and sometimes at the start.
Being home with my kids created an opportunity for me to explore one of my greatest passions. I have always loved vintage finds, home decor, and DIY. I have come to realize that being creative is what truly drives me.
In the fall of 2014, I started Saw Nail and Paint – my small business and blog. I give new life to cast-off furniture by repairing, painting, refinishing and upholstering. Each treasure from the past is restyled and transformed into a truly one-of-a-kind piece.
I am happiest when I am in my workshop, with a paintbrush in hand, transforming a forgotten find. At the end of the day, I no longer feel drained – I feel energized. I not only restore the furniture I find, but I restore my own spirit.
Please feel free to drop me a line with any questions or comments. I would love to hear from you.
