DIY Coffee Plaque

DIY Coffee Plaque

Hi Friends, and Happy Monday! We have a GREAT new DIY project for you to start out your week! What do you do when you have a broken rake? Make a plaque out of it, OF COURSE! We recently broke our rake, and instead of throwing it away…we decided to Up-Cycle it! My grandparents are Up-Cyclers too (where did y’all think we learned it?). And since Father’s Day was right around the corner, we decided to make a gift out of it for our sweet Paw Paw! 

We have seen rakes used as wine glass holders, and key holders too, but my Paw Paw LOVES COFFEE! So, we decided to use it as a mug holder. He is actually the reason why I love coffee so much. He used to give me “coffee milk” when  I was little, and I have been hooked ever since. 😉Continue reading

Our New Puppy Cave

Our New Puppy Cave

Happy Saturday, Friends! We have a great new piece for all of our PET PARENTS out there! It is what we affectionately like to call a PUPPY CAVE! (If men can have them, why not make one for man’s best friend too) We built this one for our sweet beagle, Gingerbread. She stays with me in our office while I work throughout the day, so we wanted to make a special little place that was just for her. Continue reading

Our Entry Console Cabinet Is Finished

Happy Tuesday, friends! Take a look at what we have finished! The Braud Family’s gorgeous ENTRY CONSOLE CABINET! We finished this piece to match a coffee table and end table set that we built for them a while back. Since all three pieces will we located in the same space, they will flow nicely with one another.

DIY Project In The Works!

DIY Project In The Works!

ISN’T THIS GORGEOUS! This is one of our DIY projects that we were telling all of you about. This is what our new color, “In Pursuit Of Teal,” looks like after we did a bit of aging. Y’all, nothing makes us quite as happy as refinishers as this little SNEAKY PEEK here! We LOVE when we are able to take something new and make it look like a piece that has been sitting in an old barn, down a dirt road, for 100 YEARS! These are the moments we LIVE for in our business!

We will begin our sealing process today, and are so ready to get all of our pieces attached so we can show y’all are FINISHED PRODUCT! IT’S GONNA BE A BEAUTY! 🙂

Look What We Just Picked Up! Handles!

Look What We Just Picked Up! Handles!

We just picked up our handles for our Entry Console Cabinet, and boy are they BEAUTIFUL! They tie in PERFECTLY with the RUSTIC theme of our piece. And as I have said before, we have a thing for cast iron knobs! They bring so much CHARACTER to a any piece that they are added to. And we especially LOVE adding a face plate to the back of a knob. They take up more space and make, what would have been a simple knob, look much LARGER. And 99.9% BIGGER is always BETTER. LOL! We can do that here in the SOUTH. 😉

If you are just joining us, and would like to see our journey on this piece until now, you can view our progress HERE and HERE.
