Wow it's been almost two months since a blog update.  That's lame, and it makes me very, very sad.  The truth is, without having access to my workshop, I haven't felt like there's been much to blog about.  Terry occupied the shop the first two months of the year with s...

A couple weeks ago I brought home a couple planks of salvaged barnwood.  Literally, just two, because I was in my car and not the truck.  I had a vision of a planked wood top for a salvaged wire metal table base that had made it's way to us, but I didn't want to just...

A literal trash to treasure Before & After, Brookland went from being salvaged from the side of the road to now living in a glam condo in the city.  Salvaged pieces are great, but they're not without their challenges.  It's kind of like furniture rescue - I foster thes...

Soooooo...  here's what happened.  I had a hair appointment this morning at the new location of my regular salon.  On my way to my appointment, I spotted a house with a barn and a bunch of stuff sitting in the yard.  This makes my heart sing.  Alas, it's early on Sund...

A couple weeks ago I brought home a medicine cabinet that I scored from a local salvage warehouse.  Not needing a medicine cabinet, it was the mirrored cabinet door I fell in love with.  I'm sure I could have saved the cabinet and added legs and painted it with chalkbo...

Like literally, there was an actual spotlight on Josephine.  It was making me sweat.  But now, in a more metaphoric definition, let me re-introduce you to Josephine.  Jo (as I like to call her, we're close like that) is a sweet little solid oak end table.  She's been...

A beautiful, new piece of furniture is exciting.  You've finally gotten the piece you've been waiting for for over 30 years, at least in this case.  You're awarded with more storage along with the endless display options that come with a piece like this.  However, disp...

"Orange?  Are you sure?"  There were exactly two people in this world who thought this coffee table was a good idea at it's inception - myself and the client: an interior decorator ordering a custom-built coffee table for a client of her own.  At my suggestion and her...

I have wanted to try making my own stain for a very long time.  Unfortunately, it requires a bit of patience and planning ahead - two things I almost never demonstrate when working on one of my own creations.  The Butter Bean Bench was the perfect subject for my DIY st...

One of my favorite shirts; I'm sad I didn't get to wear it a couple more times before it got cold.  The Calvin Klein safari shirt.  Or is it a cargo shirt?  The pockets don't seem baggy enough to make it a cargo shirt...  Either way, I love it.  Everything from the tai...
