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.

sofa before

“Hi.  My name is Stacy and I’m calling about the sofa you have posted on Craigslist. $30. Sure. I’ll take it.” She had no nasty smells and more importantly, she had great bones. Now it seems crazy.  Now, after the work is done, I can honestly say I’m not sure I’d do it again. These [...]
