Oak Desk Re-do: part 1

To see the finished product, check out Oak Desk Re-do: part 2

While I was out scoring this a-maze-zing dresser set last week I came upon this little oak desk. Its solid wood and very unique. I love the different sized drawers. The owners made me an offer I can't refuse so on top of the trailer she went. The husband and I were actually out on a date for our 5th anniversary and you should have seen he and I trying to squeeze everything on top of a small trailer and my even smaller car... but that's a story for another day.

Changes coming soon!

I don't know what's up with the chandelier picture... I just wanted a pretty picture for my post. 

For the last couple months I have used this blog mostly to showcase and sell my furniture. Since the boutique season is over and the craziness is winding down, I want to start transitioning towards what I always wanted- A DIY furniture blog. Now that I've got a fancy-pants camera, I'm going to start photo-documenting my projects and offering tutorials. Although a have the camera, I'm not quite sure I have the photog skills yet... so bear with me :) . Please join (there's a little button on the right) and feel free to request any projects you would like to see!

White Entertainment Center

I wish we had a flat screen TV. I would be keeping this piece if it fit! I updated and enhanced this entertainment center with new moulding, hardware, paint, and a paneled back wall. The solid back wall is especially great because you can mount your TV with a wall mounting kit instead of placing it on a stand if you chose. Its all solid hardwood. VERY HEAVY! Its on casters but you will need at least 2 people and a truck. Overall measurements at 62" wide x 64.5" tall x 26" deep. The TV opening is 38" wide x 34.5" tall x 15.5" deep. I looked at the size of some TVs online and it will fit around a 40" flat screen. - SOLD

Beautiful Solution: Tilt-out Trash/ Recycle Bins

So what if stainless steel isn't your style and you hate that you can only fit a tiny trashcan under the kitchen sink? You aren't left with many options. With some plans from I built two beautiful solutions. Tilt-out trash bins. They will accommodate a plastic can up to 16" wide x 22" high x 12" deep overall. . Cute option for a recycling can too. Available in black or creamy white.

Now I can get my life back!

I just finshed Blitzen's Boutique today... I need a nap. I haven't posted anything lately because I was so busy gearing up for the boutique. I've gotten so many cool pieces done in the last couple weeks! Not much sleep, but lots of pieces. I sold a fair amount, but I still have a trailer full of furniture and decor. Here's a couple photos while we were setting up.

I'll be listing specific pieces with prices soon. I'm still taking custom orders on the over-sized letters. Email me with the letter and color desired and I'll contact you with return time.
