Is our label a little crooked? GREAT, back to that in a minute.
I’m Laura – and painting furniture is my passion. It makes me happy to take something that could otherwise be stuck in a basement and turn it into something that will be loved and used.
Painting I LOVE, but sanding and priming, not so much. So, I began using the products on the market that don’t require sanding or priming. Well, lots of those products were difficult to use, and pricey, so I asked my husband Tom for help. He owned a chemical company for six years, and after lots of trial and error he did indeed come up with something I didn’t throw over the back fence.
A fabulous product! Something easy to use – professional results for even a novice painter. I fell in love with both the paint and the man. HA!! So I said to my man – great. If you can do this then make something that doesn’t require waxing, doesn’t require special brushes, dries in a heartbeat, sticks to almost everything, and oh, it can’t smell. And he did. Something that a stay at home mom can use while the kids are napping to create a beautiful piece of furniture.
We now have a full product line made here in the USA, and I love that it’s a “family farm”, which takes me back to the labels. Label a little crooked? GREAT! That means one of our five children probably helped with that packaging. While yours are napping as you paint, ours are laughing together helping make Rethunk Junk by Laura more fun than we ever dreamed.
From our family, Tom, Laura, Lindsey, Megan, Katie, Matthew and Emma, to yours – Happy Rethunking!
