Rescue. Rehab. Redesign. Repeat.

I am a rescuer. A huge part of the appeal of upcycling for me is the treasure hunt. Saving something from a fate of being thrown out or used for kindling just feels good. I feel like a bit of a hero, and I really shouldn’t, but it helps my self-esteem, so… My steps are […]

Retail Display

I am BIG into windows. I love the natural light and I love the invitation they give as you walk past a storefront. So much can be said by a window display and truthfully, I’d love to spend all day on our own at the shop but the reality is I have little time to […]

Keeping it Simple

I love layering. I love a color wash and a tinted wax. I love sanding and buffing and dry brushing to give detail and dimension to my work. I love playing with products like Craqueleuer and Decoupage. However, I also love just painting and waxing and being done with something. 🙂 Sometimes it’s nice to […]

School Days

This is it! In 1 short day my little (and my big) will be starting school and I will *hopefully* have a bit more time to dedicate to painting, fluffing up the shop, the class schedule, and the website. I’ve been shopping for both vintage and handmade goodies for the past month & as each […]

Secret Sale!

Some of you may know that we have a large attached storage area behind the shop…it is FULL of goodies awaiting their reinvention. A little TOO full. Someone may have a shopping habit. *ahem* About a month ago, Mr Verdigreen suggested a Garage Sale to reduce the amount of treasures we have to climb over […]

Paint Display Part 2

It’s done! I thought I’d share the end result while I paint the second bookcase (in a much bolder color combo, btw.) I am loving the Nautical look here and how cute my mini canvases are in front of each quart of paint. We have stir sticks, painted wood moldings, and now the mini canvases […]
