From the time I was a little girl, I loved everything about interior design. Rearranging my bedroom furniture was an exciting night! I have memories of my mother banging on the door to see what I was up to. With furniture blocking the doorway, I couldn’t even let her in to help! Getting married and having my own home to decorate was such a thrill. I am happy to share with you my passion for making things new while on a budget. Other than a certification in Staging and Redesign, I have no formal training in interior design, but I can offer you my eye for decorating. After a few years of redesign and staging, under the name Solutions to Sell, I incorporated refinishing furniture into the business and renamed it The Welcome Nest. I happen to love little birds and wanted to bring that to the name. Using Annie Sloan Chalk Paints and Waxes, I have transformed countless pieces and this works so well with a redesign! Refreshing something you already have can do so much for a tired room. Make sure you click on my gallery page to see some chalk painted pieces!
On a personal note, I am married to the love of my life who took me out on my first blind date. We have three handsome boys that keep us very busy and fill our lives with tremendous happiness. I am a registered nurse and work part-time for a local pediatrician. The Welcome Nest is my dream. I hope to continue to develop it and who knows what the future will bring! Thanks so much for stopping by! Samantha
