    About Me

    Have you ever heard the expression, "Necessity is the mother of invention"? Well, in no case is that proven more true than in mine. Several months back, I found myself in a new (tiny!) apartment, unable to go outside for more than a few minutes because of the frigid temperatures, and surrounded by a room full of unfinished furniture. Plain yellow knotty pine. Lots of it. "How on earth am I going to get all this furniture finished?" I wondered.

     

    Then I had the bright idea that I would do it myself...and got creative in the process. By adding artwork and unique designs, I transformed them from your average dresser or end table, into statement-making conversation pieces. The first attempt came out so well that I sold it, instead of keeping it for ourselves, leaving us without a coffee table, to my husband's chagrin (oops!). Thus, Stella Maris Designs was born, and I've been happily painting and selling ever since!

    Thanks for stopping by my site, and I hope you discover something you never knew you were missing!
