Subway Piece for Lori

Check out this new subway piece! This is one of my favorites we've done yet!

Awesome gift, right?

It includes many of their favorite places and trips and has a very special meaning to them, reminding them of the amazing memories made in Washington.

Love it!

Gorgeous Shabby Wine Rack with Wainscoting - SOLD

Once upon a time, I came across this fantastic, yet ugly wine rack at a thrift store. It was made of outdated blonde wood and a bit wobbly. It was definitely old.... but not a good old. Nevertheless, I thought it had some great potential and I got a good deal on it. What it lacked in vintage charm, it made up for in price and potential.

I got to work on it, finishing it in our vintage cream color, distressing the heck out of it and glazing with a dark, chocolate brown. To really bring it to the next level and create patina where there was none, I added the wainscoting to the sides and it was the perfect touch. I love how the dark glaze highlights the grooves of the wainscoting. Very cottage chic!

Aqua & Damask Piano Bench - SOLD

Recent Subway Art!

Now that spring is finally here in Minnesota, (after a whopping S E V E N  MONTH LONG WINTER, might I add) people are getting in the mood to re-decorate and I've been getting swamped with amazingly fun subway art orders. I love Subway art. For whatever reason, I am really drawn to words and contrasty visuals. I've never been big on elaborate floral paintings or busy abstract art. I love the simplicity of a word. It has meaning and purpose. It represents a greater idea - and to some - it can be elusive and cryptic. I love the idea of a street address that reminds a couple of the place that they got married or a single word that has the ability to bring a flood of emotion when it's seen.

Here are a few that I've been working on lately!

Custom dining table & chairs for Laura!

More fun to share!

Remember way back last summer when it was warm and beautiful outside? Remember when I shared these fun, eclectic chairs with you? I adore the mismatched/multicolor look and, as a side note, I'm really beginning to miss those warm days right about now....

The chairs were for a client that I've been doing a lot of interior work for. I was recently at her house and snapped a few quick pics of the dining set all together! It totally reminds me of summer... seeing those colors again just puts me in a good mood!

I also refinished her dining table for her and it's one of my favorite pieces of all time. You are not going to believe what I am about to tell you...

A refinished outdoor storage bin for Catherine

 One of our faithful customers, Catherine, came back for another custom order!

She and her hubby recently did some renovations to their amazing house and have a wonderful three-season porch with some great rustic touches. She wanted a nice outdoor storage bin that could hold bird seed and stand up to the MN weather!

She definitely knew exactly what she wanted it to look like. A nice weathered green with tones of brown to coordinate with the colors of her porch. We fondly refer to it as "Distressed Glazed Basil"... as inspired by Ballard Design's Casa Florentina colors. 

Pretty isn't it? I love the rustic green tones and the vintage hinges.
