New Year & a New Venture

Since I left my recruiting career in Portland, Oregon to move to Olympia, Washington I was in need of a new position.  I decided now is the right time to use all that I have learned over the years and leverage my entrepreneurial spirit to create my own opportunity (a lifelong goal of mine).  After brainstorming with Lindsy’s mother, Joni, and her step-father, Jerry, we decided to combine our talents and launch a wood furniture and decor business.  Joni has over 15 years of experience in painting, Jerry has over 20 years of experience in wood working and I have over 10 years of combined experience in business/marketing/sales/wood working.

Since do it yourself (DIY) is so popular I decided on the name Done For You (DFY) Design.  I created a logo that includes both our name and the red barn where we work (our shop).

My personal blog is on wordpress so since I am already familiar with it I decided to build our site using wordpress.org.  Check it out here.

We wanted to be as environmentally conscious as possible so we included refurbishing and repurposing in our offerings.  Places like Ikea, Target, Fred Myer etc. offer nice furniture and décor but most of it is not made with real wood.  Therefore, we offer hand crafted, locally made, high quality, solid wood furniture and décor at an affordable price. Our major differentiator from local furniture suppliers is that we offer unique custom solutions.  For convenience, our products can be purchased either in person or online.  We can ship smaller items anywhere in the US.

DFY Design LLC combines many things I’m passionate about: business, marketing, designing, creating, and craftsmanship.  I hope this proves to be a fruitful venture because it is something I really enjoy.  Thanks to everyone who has supported me along the way.  If you are ever in the market for hand crafted wood furniture/décor or are looking to network I would love to hear from you.
