Hello! My name is Natalie, and I am the owner and creative mind behind A Ray of Sunlight. I have always loved anything to do with crafts, so it only seemed right when I started my career in painting and refinishing furniture. Growing up my parents taught me how to create, imagine the possibilities and transform things with a bit of work and paint. I wanted a career that would enable me stay home with my baby girl, and furniture does just that. Thank you for following along on my adventures of up-cycling and bringing light back to old outdated pieces.
