About

I’m Allison. I have always been a creative girl. My mom & sister are the same way. I believe if there is a will, there is a way! I am always looking to find ways to be creative. Fabric, colors & textures are my obsession. I have done everything from custom window treatments, custom painting and now refurbishing furniture. I love being a “handy girl”! I’m lucky enough to have 4 wonderful daughters that will hopefully be blessed with the same creative instinct. My oldest daughter, Emily 13, helps around the shop sanding and cleaning. The younger girls, Brooke 8, and the twins, Addison & Ella 5, just like to ask a million questions. One day I hope to have my own shop with all 4 girls working there with me.

About a year ago when I decided to have a house built, that I wanted to create all my furniture. Let the fun begin. When I make up my mind to do something, there is no stopping me. I searched everywhere to find pieces to work on. However, I am very precise on the ones that get to come home. They need good bones!! I quickly had a garage full of old dilapidated furniture screaming for some love. The furniture turned out so well that I decided to sell some and see how it went. The response has been amazing! I am now turning my little hobby into a business.

I’ve always loved a good before & after when it comes to furniture. I agree with my friend at sweet pickins, the power of paint in amazing! Top that with a little fabric and viola! I find that paring vintage designs with fashionable fabrics & painting techniques are an amazing way to create works of art. The dynamic between elegance and edginess, traditional and contemporary is what makes the furniture so interesting. Re-use, re-cycle & re-design describes my unique method of updating the funkiest of antique finds into fresh, inspiring and stylish home furnishings.
