Hook 'Em Horns

We have a brother who is the ultimate Texas Longhorns fan.  Not sure where he picked that up since we have always lived in Utah...go figure!

we draw names for our Christmas gift exchange and I just happened to get his name.  
Well you know us --- any excuse to upcycle a piece of furniture and we're in!!

So what better gift to give the Longhorn Bachelor Brother than some custom made TV Trays that show his Longhorn pride.

Now we might have to make a separate set for EVERY fan in the family to show their team allegiance!!

Custom Order Display Shelving

We were approached by a local vendor to create some display shelving for her products.  She had seen shelving created out of shutter doors and wanted something similar for her beautiful soaps and lotions.  And it just so happened that we had a shutter closet door just waiting in our storage shed for a beautiful makeover!  Don't ya just love it when things come together like that?!?! :-)

So here are the shutter doors in process.  First we painted them in a beautiful shade of pink, not too soft and not too bright....I would say they are just right! 

After painting the doors we removed three of the shutter slats and cut shelving from wood to fit.  The shelving was covered with decorative contact paper for a fun splash of style!  So cute and perfect for displaying pretty things!!

Decorative Christmas Plates

 We have been working on some fun decorative plates that are perfect for Christmas or Winter Decor.  
These would make perfect gifts for the person who has everything!! 
Great for In-Laws, Neighbors, Friends, Teachers, or Hostess Gifts.  No two plates are the same!  They can be displayed just about anywhere and are the perfect touch for holiday/winter decor!  

 These plates and more are now available at 2nd & Main (see side bar for link and location) with prices starting at just $25.00. 

In addition, we just got done with a HUGE gift basket order and this is just a small sampling of some of the beautiful plates that were created for that order.
 After working on these we're defnitely feeling the Christmas spirit! 
It truly is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!

Custom Order Dining Set

We had a client bring us this fabulously HUGE 9 piece dining set complete with oval table, 2 leafs, and 8 chairs.
This set was sturdy and solid...just needed a little updating to make it look new again!

And here is the set AFTER with it's beautiful new makeover!

Please pardon the unflattering garage background and the fact that these pictures were taken at night with less than flattering lighting.  But even with all that, they still look absolutely gorgeous!!  The new finish will bring this family together for family dinners for many, many years to come!  

If you are interesting in bringing us one of your pieces for a custom refinish, just contact us to get started! (see email on sidebar)

Blast from the Past

We love pieces that have a touch of nostalgia, some type of history that speaks to us and makes you wonder about all the many places and faces it may have seen.  
This is definitely that kind of piece!

This gorgeous dining table centerpiece is an old feeding trough, complete with original nails and all.  Great character from old wood and years of use...we can only imagine what this piece must have seen through the years!!  
We lightly dry brushed the outside to lighten it up but left everything in its near original state to capture all the charm that this piece could bring to your table or fireplace mantle.  Great for decorating for the seasons.  

Available at 
Vintage on Main
(see side bar for location and contact information)
for only $149.95.

Vintage Wardrobe

First of all, we want to apologize for the lack of pictures in this post, but hopefully you get the idea!  We found we can get better quality pics with our IPhone and so we are making the transition, but technical difficulties are making it hard to download the pics for some reason....not to mention the fact that we are a bit technically challenged at times so we're sure this might have something to do with the difficulties in getting the pics downloaded! :)

In the meantime, we have a couple of pics of this fabulous vintage wardrobe we just finished and took to Vintage on Main on Saturday.

The wardrobe has been painted in fun colors of black, white and aqua, with a unique damask pattern on the front.  The wardrobe is on caster wheels for easy mobility and would make a great focal point in any room of the home!

Custom Order Bed

A few months ago we refinished this darling little dresser for a sweet little girl who absolutely LOVES the color pink!

We had such a fun time finishing this sweet little shabby dresser so we were completely thrilled when our fabulous client came back to us and wanted a bed refinished for her daughter to match the dresser.

Of course, the color pink had to be incorporated and the same shabby style used to create a fun set.  Check out how darling this bed turned out!!

We love the way the pinks peeks through...perfect for a little Pink Princess!
