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

Trio of Bright & Bold…custom painted bar stools.

by sara & stacy on February 18, 2014

This gorgeous set of three left our studio and headed straight for our sweet client Becky’s pad in Winnipeg, Manitoba,Canada.  Aren’t they just so fun?  Becky sent along three Benjamin Moore paint swatches for us to match and we think we nailed it.  Remember, we can colormatch absolutely anything you throw at us.

It’s a BIG, big world….global SCOUTing goodness.

by sara & stacy on January 28, 2014

We ship internationally on a weekly basis and adore our worldly scouters.  We “meet” lovely people from all different walks of life who love vintage goodness as much as we do.

However, this story is special.  Our client “A.” was born in the Middle East but was raised for a period of time in the U.S.  While in the U.S., she fondly remembers having a special, child -sized rocking chair.  When she stumbled across this one in our Etsy shop, she had to have it for her little cutie.  Once carefully packed, we sent the sweet little seat on it’s way around this great big planet.  It landed safely and her sweet darling is now enjoying this special vintage rocker.
