We custom mix most of our colors using powdered pigment and our finishes are either top-coated multiple times with a low-sheen finish, or waxed to a soft glow.

All sewn pieces feature serged or French seams (never any raw edges!) and will arrive to you freshly pressed.

We are always happy to tackle a custom project :0)

Refinishing/Repurposing items and sewing are my hobbies, and I enjoy the hunt as much as the rest of the creative process. My husband is graphic artist who also happens to be a general contractor. Rest assured, your furniture items will arrive to you in as close to perfect condition as is possible. No wobbly legs or loose hinges here!

You can find us online at www.stiltskinstudios.com, here on Etsy, or at our lovely studio, located in Clearwater, FL

We also preview our listing on FaceBook. Find us under Stiltskin Studios. "LIKE" us and we'll be eternally grateful. We occasionally show our gratitude in the form of discount coupon codes :0)

For Rumplestiltskin, of course! He turned straw into gold...talk about making recycling profitable!
