My mom and dad recently built this farm table for a client of ours. The legs are vintage and one of a kind. The table top is constructed of solid, kiln dried poplar, which is a very hardwood. The table top is about two inches thick, so it creates a sturdy and durable surface for diner parties and family gatherings. I painted the legs a beautiful red, distressed them and then finished the rustic look by aging them with a dark walnut stain. The table is six feet long and turned out to be a great statement piece in the kitchen of our client.
This table was $1100.

My mom is a DIY kind of gal. When I was a kid I remember trips to thrift stores, strolling the hardware store isles, and of course spending hours feeling fabric at the yardage shop. She was constantly transforming bargain buys into treasures for our home. With a fresh coat of paint or a new slipcover, she gave old furniture new life. We have always enjoyed being creative together and in 2008 we turned our hobby and passion into a business.

I'm Deana, the author of this blog. My mom, Connie, taught me from a young age how to spot a deal at a flea market or a thrift shop. She could always spot the hidden potential of an old, worn out piece of furniture. I learned to sew when I was four years old and all through the years I helped my mom with DIY projects around the house.
In 2008 she & I turned our hobby into a business. We re-do old furniture and hand craft items for sale in our boutique. For those who, like us, love to DIY we offer lots of tips and advice in our tutorial videos. We also offer furniture painting, upholstery, and sewing services for those who don't want to tackle the project themselves.
