I'm Jenni Ingram. Founder of Roots & Wings Furniture located online and in the Pittsburgh, PA area. It's nice to meet you!
When I was growing up, I was always working with my grandfather on some project or another. And every once and while it was refinishing a piece of furniture. I was shop kid of the year in 8th grade because wood shop seemed like way more fun to me than home economics. I had a passion for power tools even from a young age!
I went to school for Engineering (Bear Down Arizona!), because if you asked me what I wanted to do, I would say I wanted to “build stuff”. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to build, but I knew I loved working with my hands. I couldn’t wait to have my own house to try my hand at DIY projects.
Fast forward a few years, and I find myself as a stay- at-home mom with a non-existent decorating budget and a house full of mis-matched, hand-me-down furniture. I thought a coat of paint sure couldn't hurt it so I started giving everything a makeover. It was so FUN! And it looked so much better! I eventually ran out of pieces to refinish for my own home, and wanted to share my love of creativity and design with others. That's when Roots & Wings Furniture was born.
Right now my workshop is my garage, and I love reclaiming forgotten pieces of furniture. Teaching others online how to create and decorate has been another amazing way to build a community of like minded people and share my passion of painting with others.
I'd love to hear from you!
