Welcome to At Number 10, my name is Heather.
I love old houses and old furniture. My biggest passion is finding a diamond in the rough (be it a house or a piece of furniture) and turning it into something beautiful.
I have been refinishing furniture as a hobby for several years and I dabbled in selling pieces on kijiji (online classifieds in Canada) while on maternity leave. After my third daughter was born, I decided to quit my job as a public health nurse and stay at home full time.
I originally started at Number 10 solely as a place to showcase my furniture that was for sale but it has become a lot more than that. I am learning a lot about website design, the blogging community and exploring areas of design and decorating that go beyond just furnishings.
I completed renovations on my two previous homes, one in my hometown (near Toronto, Ontario), and one in Austin, Texas. I am currently working on my dream renovation project outside of Boston, Massachusetts. My latest home is over 100 years old and needs a lot of work. It will be my most challenging and most gratifying restoration.
Please follow me as I continue on my journey to make old homes the best they can be.
See you soon,
