A Chat with Summer Snowflake Designs
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I rescue old furniture and give it new life. Whether it just needs painting or a completely new purpose, I use my expertise, excellent sense of color, and creativity to create budget friendly high end pieces. My classes show you how to turn your old piece into a work of art!
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Students need to bring a small/medium piece of furniture that they would like to refinish. I do have a wide variety of unfinished pieces for purchase. I provide all other supplies needed.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Upcycling/Refinishing is not a skill I was born with. It took patience, listening asking for help and a lot of time. I want to pass this skill onto others and have a lot of fun in the process.
What do you love most about your job?
Being able to see the end product and knowing that I created it. I also love being able to use a portion of my profits to give back to the community! I participate in 2 charities as well as the charities others request.
