How I Bounce Back from a Crazy Week

So it has been a while since I blogged about anything personal. If you know me, you know that I am a very open book, but I don’t always share a ton on my blog. I thought it was about time for a more personal post. Life is a little hectic right now. I break down my life into a few different areas: faith, home (family/friends) and work. Typically if one or two are a little out of whack I am...

Favorite Finished Pieces This Week!

We don't always get a chance to document finished pieces for customers. They move in and out of production and then get out to you as quickly as possible, so we usually don't get a chance to photograph them. However, some of our coolest pieces are ones that our customers have designed with us! Like this beauty! I wasn't sure how a transitional piece like this would work on a metal base, but I'm so glad the customer took the risk...

Painted Bamboo Furniture

Bamboo furniture is so fun to paint because it makes such an amazing transformation. It takes a style that is very dated, into something so unique and full of personality. While many finishes look great on bamboo, I love doing these pieces in gloss because it makes all of the curves really pop. This one is available at our shop right now. It is painted in Benjamin Moore Galapagos in a high gloss finish and we polished the hardware to bring...

An Ode to Benjamin Moore Galapagos

Alright, let's talk about Benjamin Moore Galapagos. I LOVE this color. It is so beautiful and rich and shockingly goes with a lot. It's a pop of color that I can really get behind for your/my/our furniture. We did these two pieces recently in the high gloss version of galapagos and they turned our so cool. These bamboo dressers are amazing canvases. I especially love the look of a high gloss finish on this style because it highlights the curves in...

Before and After: MCM Dresser

This dresser could've been refinished in many ways that would've been very spectacular, but for this mid century piece, we decided to shake it up and try something totally new! We used Farrow and Ball Off-Black matte paint for the casing of the dresser, which is a slate gray color. It is an in-house color for us because we just love it! It can read navy in some light, but it is just like the name says, a little lighter than...

New In-House Color: BM Light Pistachio

We have updated our in-house colors and added this amazing mint green, Benjamin Moore Light Pistachio. I have been wanting to add a mint color for awhile, but hadn't found the perfect shade.

I think this color would be adorable in a kids' room of any kind. I love...

Our Living Room Tour

Like all the rooms in our house, our living room has had many different iterations. It hasn't changed as dramatically as some other spaces, but I'm definitely liking it's current stage more than the previous ones! From that picture when we first moved in, I'd say it's come a LONG way. We recently did a lot of work on our fireplace. We added the chevron tile and painted it Farrow and Ball Down Pipe. That has made the biggest difference in the...
