A Custom Kitchen in St. Paul : A Mix of Awesome.

by sara & stacy on May 30, 2014

We truly believe the beauty is in the mix.  First, let’s start with our client Sarah.  She’s a wonderful, beautiful mix of kindness, talent, patience, determination and sweetness.  After receiving her stools, her note back to us read, “Got the stools, and they are oh-so PERFECT in every way!”

Secondly, let’s discuss the beautiful, tasteful, classic mix in Sarah’s lovely kitchen.  It’s almost as awesome as she is. It’s a solid combination of vintage elements, clean lines, pleasing colors, complimentary textures and overall yumminess. She worked hand in hand with the great crew at Brownsmith Restoration to bring her kitchen from dated to divine.

Our vintage quilt bunting was one of the most popular items at the Spring Junk Bonanza show in April.  We even used it to trim the top of our booth (see the last image). Our friend Molly purchased this gorgeous piece and used it in a recent photo shoot….thanks Molly!

Each string of bunting is approximately 7 feet long and includes 11 – 13 flags.  Head over to the sugarSCOUT Etsy shop to find out more….Vintage Quilt Buntingbunting imagebunting 1bunting bwjunkbonanza
