It’s me! I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted but I’m so excited to be back typing on the old laptop again 🙂 This introductory post has been a long time coming! I have been wanting to re brand BD Design Blog for awhile and now it is finally up and running! I couldn’t be more happier. I started my blog back in 2013 when I was consistently selling refinished furniture for friends and neighbors. I started refinishing furniture as a hobby and that hobby gave my family a little extra money as I sold each piece. I decided to get a bit more professional so I created a blog on blogger to showcase my work and get more referrals. I wasn’t really thinking of the future when I first came up with the name BD Designs. In fact, I was kind of put on the spot when I signed up to be a vendor at a local market and needed a name! So without much thought I said BD Designs…B for Brandy, D for Dunaway, Design for Designing 🙂 Really creative huh?
Well, the blog slowly drifted away from furniture transformations and became more of a DIY craft, recipe, and home decor blog. So the name evolved into BD Design Blog. And I have never loved it. It didn’t represent what my blog was to be about anymore. Plus, try saying that name fast…BD Design Blog! It just never flowed. It never felt right. I knew I needed a change. A name change. A logo change. A blog change. A place where I feel more myself, where the name and the look represent me and my point of view!
INTRODUCING MY NEW BRAND: PAINTED CONFETTI
“Painted” because I still do love painting. I love furniture and room transformations. I have my Etsy shop where I sell hand painted signs for your home. I am constantly tackling DIY projects around where paint (and glitter) are usually being used!
And “Confetti” because I love to celebrate! Whether it’s holidays with cute decor and yummy food recipes. Or celebrating life and lessons learned.
I have changed all of my social media handles to Painted Confetti so if you aren’t joining me there, I would love for you to follow along! Links to all the accounts are up in the corner! I have lots of fun posts ready for the summer so I hope you check back soon. Transferring over 150 posts and re tagging them won’t happen overnight but I’ll do my best to get everything in order!
