Hey you! Welcome! My name is Donna Dodson, but my friends call me Do. Defender of ugly furniture! I’m a Creative Entrepreneur, Furniture Artist, Online Business Coach, Encourager of Women, DIY Enthusiast, Interior Stylist, Blogger, Photographer, Coffee Snob, Wife, Mother, Grandma, Nurse and borderline hoarder of junk. That’s a lot of hats! But most important, Grandma to 6 perfect GRANDS. ❤️
I’m 54 years young and I retired in 2016 from a nursing career of 33 years to pursue my passion painting furniture. My hair is gray and I’m loving every strand of it. Today, I’m doing exactly what I planned to do, and that is to encourage women to find their passion, coaching women how to make money with their furniture painting business online.
I’ve always been known as “thrifty” as I’m sure I obtained that from my Grandmother. Memories of her decorating and setting the table with mismatched dishes is a happy memory. Mom also frequented Goodwill and I tagged along and paid attention. Flea markets, garage sales, thrift stores and curbside finds are like Christmas Day to me. I have many passions and the list is growing daily.
My TRUE passion is encouraging women to find their passion and make money doing it. But the love of my paintbrush is a close second. I also enjoy working with power tools, modifying furniture and interior design. I tend to be attracted to the ugliest, saddest piece of furniture I can find and then bring it back to life. I LOVE a good challenge!
I’m so glad you’re here. I want to share more with you.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
