What I work on during the off season.

I work out of the garage in my home, so when the winter months come along, I find other projects to work on. That’s not to say I haven’t refinished furniture in winter, but generally it’s a slow time of year. I hate being idle, so that’s when I work on my paintings. Here’s a few pictures of recent works.

My name is Kelli, and I am the Owner/Designer of Aunt Ruh's Attic LLC. Aunt Ruh's Attic Restores, Refinishes, and Repurposes furniture. The business was named after my mother, who was the master of taking something old and making it new again. She instilled in me a love of art and design from a very young age, a love that I enjoy to this day. The love of art and design led me to study Interior Design at the University of Mount St. Joseph where I received my B.A, and then to the University of Cincinnati where I received my M.F.A in Fine Art. After working for years as the owner of my own residential interior design company, I discovered my true calling. So many of my clients wanted to dispose of perfectly good furniture simply because it didn't fit into their new décor. I began refinishing or re-imagining those pieces, and returning them into the new décor. Thus, began a new business...Aunt Ruh's Attic LLC.
