From the monthly archives: June 2011

When we moved and had to acquire all new furniture (the buyer bought 98% of our furniture), we kept a few things. My queen sized bed with the tempuerpedic mattress was one of those things. However, a wife, 2 dogs and me don’t quite fit in a queen bed – so we decided to move […]

A few months ago when we decided that Lauren was going to be working from home, we had to set up her office space. Since my steelcase desk was made to match what I wanted – it was only fitting that I created a desk just for her. She wanted simple clean lines, white […]

These dressers were a special order/request from a client that had seen our Farmhouse Dresser. But she wanted two matching dressers – one his and one hers. After exchanging emails and discussing ideas, we found a matching pair of dressers that fitted the bill and we got to work. We primed, […]

We found these dining room chairs at a consignment shop in the very back (aka the clearance section). Lauren immediately ran to them and could barely contain her excitement when she was told the price.

Funky 70’s Lamps

On June 7, 2011 By

I came across these lamps at Goodwill a few weeks back and snapped them up  with visions of repainting them and bringing them back from the 70’s. Electric yellow with silver taped accents? Yikes! But I could see the shape of these would make something great.
