My name is Lee, and I am the Owner and Designer of The Lemonade Stand. The Lemonade Stand is a home-based creative vintage studio that was started as a part-time venture back in 2014. I originally started painting by stumbling upon a painted dresser in a “Style at Home” magazine. It was a gorgeous yellow colour, and I had to have this colour in my house. The colour was called Mustard Yellow, by Miss Mustard Seed. I started reading the very inspirational Miss Mustard Seed blog and got very inspired! I painted a sideboard in the yellow, and kept on painting different items in my house. I took some classes and got some great guidance from other women entrepreneurs in the same industry.
Things have evolved since that time. In early 2017 I left my full-time corporate job as a Human Resources Business Partner to pursue The Lemonade Stand full-time. A big part of my business in now handmade signs and workshops!
I use the highest of quality all-natural milk paints, mineral paints, low VOC chalk-based paints, natural stains and gel stains on all my products.
Many items can be customized. If you are looking for something completely different, please reach out to me.
Some fun facts about me…..I love Bon Jovi. He was my very first concert back in 1989 at the Calgary Saddledome and it was love at first sight! I am a sun worshipper. I also love brussel sprouts and wine, Fixer Upper, reading, and collecting cook books.
Thank you for looking!
