Meet Sarah

Hi! My name is Sarah.

And that was me back in 1979. I have changed a bit since then, and now I look like this:

Most days, though, I am still a chick in a tattered cowboy hat daydreaming about soaring sky-high on my backyard swing. And, though I was blissfully unaware at the time, it was my childhood spent in a tiny beachside town on the Gulf of Mexico where I learned to appreciate the simple things; to embrace the past; to march unabashedly to my own drummer, to wear a skirt and wield power tools all at the same time.

That spirit follows me today as I enter my mid-thirties with a couple of rambunctious drummer marchers of my own. It is for them that I press on when the logical (and quickest selling) thing to do is probably not to paint an antique wardrobe peacock blue. But, that’s alright, there’s a drummer for each of us and it is actually not illegal to paint antique furniture {I checked with the furniture police on that one and they’re totally cool with it}. I hope our drummers will meet up sometime and you find a perfect corner of your home for a 2+Hue creation. Thanks so much for checking out my blog!

As for the rest of the story, details, details…

Besides my amazing family, I love: open windows, bright sunshine, high heeled sandals, and taking hot messes of cast-off furniture and recreating them into beautiful pieces.  As a native Florida girl, I found myself wandering aimlessly around the Alabama’s Gulf Coast after my husband accepted a job transfer. It was there where I discovered the art of furniture refinishing. After completely rehauling my own home, I decided to create my own refinishing business from the ground up; and, well, the rest was history. Shortly thereafter, I partnered with interior designers and learned the ins and outs of achieving that fancy pants design store look for a fraction of the cost. I branched-out into helping to stage coastal rental homes and specialized in cottage/coastal/shabby chic designs.

Soon, RehabbyChic as I was then known, exploded and I had more orders than I could fill. However, the opportunity to bring our children back home to our beloved Sunshine State presented itself so I packed up my tools and headed south. After getting settled once again, I am so eager to embark on yet another furniture design adventure. In January of 2012, was offered an amazing opportunity to bring a little of 2+Hue to even more wonderful people. I moved in to my little cubby of paradise at the Art Angels Antique Mall on South Orange Avenue in Orlando.

I love what I do.

I love being back.

And I cannot wait to bring a bit of southern fried awesomeness to my home sweet Florida home.

So, here I go.

Welcome to 2+Hue Designs!

Until then,

Sarah
