Grand Opening... What will you win?

I am so excited to finally have this day arrive.  Thank you for visiting The Rustic Alley blog for the first post!  Aren't you all excited to say that "I was one of the first readers of The Rustic Alley!?!"  For months I have been working up the courage to become an "official" blogger so I can share my refinishing creations, sell my furniture, and post all my other diy projects! 

  
With the encouragement from family and friends I am making this dream a reality.
 

For as long as I can remember I have loved design and have loved making things.  When I look at something my brain just goes to that place, "what could I do to make it better?" or "how can I do that myself?"  So starting my refinishing business has come naturally.  I would love to take your un-loved furniture...

 

and...

transform it into a one of a kind treasure!  Email me at therusticalley@gmail.com, I would love to hear from you.    

With the support of great businesses I am bringing you some awesome GIVEAWAYS!  Each week you will have the chance to win different prizes from cash, baby accessories, jewelry, stationary, photography session, and a vacation!  What other blog that is just starting can bring you all that?  Make sure you keep coming back each day to see what is going on at The Rustic Alley.
