Welcome! My name is Donna Dodson, but you can call me Do. The defender of ugly furniture! I’m a Creative Business Coach, Furniture Artist, Entrepreneur, Motivator, 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 of the most perfect GRANDS in the whole world.
I retired in 2016 from a nursing career of 33 years to pursue my passion for painting furniture and teaching. I teach furniture painters how to break down one piece of furniture into multiple revenue streams and how to get the most money out of painting furniture.
I have many passions and the list is growing daily, but my TRUE passion is encouraging creatives to find their passion and make money doing it. 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.

2 Corinthians 5:17

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