Business Description
Upcycled / Refinished Furniture and Reclaimed Pallet Wood Creations:

I grew up in a house with little money but so many riches. I've acquired a taste for quality vintage items, particularly charming furniture. I love mid century pieces the most, but if it catches my eye, look out!

My dad was a painter, and he taught me his trade. I learned rather quickly that a touch of paint color is an easy transformation if you have a vision and know what you're doing.

Over the years, I've found old and forgotten treasures and used sandpaper, paint, and wax to give them new life. It has always been a hobby of mine, but when I met my husband, Mike, it became a passion we both shared.

The culture, history, and sturdiness of old furniture helps to inspire us. We have enjoyed decorating our home together with updated relics of the past and have more recently found ways to take forgotten pallet wood and turn it into useful home decor.

My Etsy store began with showcasing my love of girly vintage fashion...clothes, purses, shoes, etc, but it has evolved so much over the past year and a half. Currently, this shop is a crossbreed of vintage and re-purposing, but all of the items for sale have one thing in common; they are adored because I truly love Everything I sell

Together, Mike and I have so much fun turning pallet wood into clocks. He cuts and builds, and I paint and design. We love to customize orders for customers and feel Etsy is a great outlet for our future endeavors.
