After I opened the store front I had people gifting me furniture almost everyday, I would come home to find pieces by the front steps or arrive at the shop in the morning to them by the front door. I am grateful for all of the support I receive from friends, family and complete strangers for their donations but not all furniture is created equal. Some of the pieces are beautiful solid wood built to last a lifetime, others may not have been items built for longevity so I use whatever parts I can and then they head off to be recycled. This vintage headboard has great bones and I was excited to give it a new life with a pop of color! Read More

Hello Friends! I need your help. I found an opportunity to showcase my DIY's on The Hallmark's Channels Home & Family TV Show. This chance of a lifetime would help put my business on the map! I would be truly grateful if you would take a moment to follow this link: Home & Family and like or comment on the video. Every like and comment helps the network decide who moves on to spend a week with their Home & Family crew and teach a few crafts to their viewers!
I was late to come across this opportunity so there are only 3 days to get support from my amazing friends and family. Please take a moment to help me out I am so thankful for y'alls constant support!
