I have always dreamed of starting my own company doing something I loved.

With my sister’s encouragement, I started buying and refurbishing vintage furniture and architectural salvage. I love spending hours (and miles) wandering through thrift stores, estate sales and salvage lots searching for vintage furniture. In every discarded chair and window is a new life. Each refurbished or repurposed piece has a story to tell, and I scrub, paint, sand, and polish all of them with love and care. When you take home one of these treasures, I hope it brings you as much joy as it brought me throughout its creation.

I am a widow and mother to two amazing daughters. Outside of spending time with them, I’m never happier than when I am sanding and painting away. If you happen to see me running an errand looking dusty and paint splattered, you know it’s a good day!

You know the old adage, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure?” Each piece I refurbish or repurpose starts with a unique vision of what I know it can be and then the process begins.

A style that is all your own.
