Hello there! My name is Linda and this is my blog, q is for quandie. Lots of people are confused and think my name is Quandie, but no. If you want to know how I came up with the name for my blog, you can read all about it here. I will answer to Quandie though, so feel free to call me that if you want to.
Why the blog? I love finding a beat up old piece of furniture and transforming it into something fabulous. There is just something supremely satisfying about taking a banged up, uncared for vintage item and turning it into something that someone out there is going to totally love. I mostly work with furniture, but I love just about everything vintage. I used to share my transformations with friends and family via Facebook, but I felt like that format was too limiting because I like to write, so in November 2013 I took the leap and started a blog instead.
I don’t do it all myself, I have help from my cast of characters and you can read about them here.
Mr. Q (my husband, Mike) and I live in Minnesota in our 1904 farmhouse that finds itself smack in the middle of the burbs now.
When I am not revitalizing furniture,
I can be found working at my day job as an accountant (scratch that, I retired in 2021!), traveling, gardening, decorating, scrapbooking, or hitting the neighborhood garage sales (sometimes I throw in a little wine drinking and sleeping just to keep things well rounded). You’ll find a little bit about all of these things here on q is for quandie.Welcome! Hope to see you around often!
