Pantry Swing Door And Matching Plaque

Pantry Swing Door And Matching Plaque

Hi Friends and Happy Friday! Here is a super fun refinish and custom build that we recently completed for our awesome clients, the Stein family! They are building a fabulous new home, and had a really COOL IDEA for their pantry door. They wanted a paneled, and paned swing door with a matching scrollwork plaque to hang above. And as for the finish, they wanted everything to match the gray theme that they have throughout their home, but with a really cool aged/distressed feel. The only problem was…. THEY NEEDED TO FIND A DOOR! Continue reading

How To Be The Wealthiest Person In The World

How To Be The Wealthiest Person In The World

ABSOLUTELY CORRECT! If you are abundant in all of these, then you are the WEALTHIEST person in the world!

We purchased a little decorative sign many, many years ago that says, ” I don’t care how poor a man is; if he has family, he is rich.”

rich

That sign hit home for us because we didn’t have 2 pennies to rub together at the time, yet we felt like we were ON TOP OF THE WORLD because Patrick and I had each other and 2 babies (at the time). We were just happy being together and it truly felt as if life couldn’t get any better.

All of these years later, we still have that little sign in our home. We actually just moved it today to a new shelf in our bathroom so we can see it more often and be reminded of this simple, yet important truth. Sometimes it is nice to hold onto those sentimental things from our past so we can see how far we have truly come.

Be BLESSED, sweet friends! <3

 

Christmas Tree Win!

Christmas Tree Win!

Clark Griswald would be IMPRESSED! One Seattle man decided to SHOCK the neighborhood with his Christmas decorations this year with one fantastic illusion.

Paul Kruger is an architect who his well known in his neighborhood for OVER-THE-TOP holiday displays. His wife even drives a car with the license plate “GRSWLDS,” (A not-so-subtle reference to the Clark Griswald.) So, this year, the decided to send a Christmas tree right through the roof of their family’s home… Or at least make your neighbors think that’s what happened.Continue reading

Antique Knob Coat Rack

Antique Knob Coat Rack

Hi Friends! Here is a brand new piece that we just finished for one of our wonderful clients, Laura! She wanted an ECLECTIC piece that she could use to hang coats and keys on in her entryway. She chose a solid wood backing, which we built using tongue and groove flooring planks. We then added a collection of knobs that feature both cast iron and glass. They give this piece a RUSTIC, ELEGANT, ANTIQUE feel. (There are additional cup hooks along the bottom for keys to hang.)Continue reading

Double Unit Puppy Cave

Double Unit Puppy Cave

Happy Wednesday, friends! Here is a piece that we just finished for some of our very SPECIAL clients. They recently added a new, TOTALLY ADORABLE little fur baby to their family and asked if we could build them a double unit set of puppy caves. We were thrilled to give it a try since we have never attached 2 units together before.

Unlike our typical puppy cave units, which are separate, these attached units help to SAVE ON SPACE, as well as offer a nice area where dog treats, toys, pictures, or decor could be set on top. (Isn’t it great to have a piece that can be useful as well as decorative?)Continue reading
