About Me

This is Me

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,

    Have you moved to Austin yet? We are looking at making the same move from GA though.

    I live about 120 miles southeast of Austin and just wanted to say Welcome to Texas!! Your new, old home is going to be spectacular! I’m also a nurse, now staying at home starting a home staging/decor business. Loved nursing for 28 years but decorating is oh so much more fun 😉
