We just love our table that was custom made for us. When the table arrived it was even more beautiful then we had pictured in our minds. We will enjoy this for years to come. This is a piece that will be passed down for generations. She is a true artist.

About

Rural Missouri girl creates handmade products from salvaged materials.

I graduated from college in 2010 with degrees in fine art and design art and opened a graphic design business. Then, in 2012 I opened my Etsy shop (Grindstone Design) as a way to find a home for some cool finds I had taken out of a house I was remodeling. I had so much fun selling these first items that I kept the shop going and growing!

Almost all the items in my Etsy shop use salvaged items or materials. I love taking old things and giving them a new life. It's inspiring to think that some wood I salvaged from an old chicken coop could be made into a coffee table and then find it's way to an apartment in New York. I love all kinds of art, but personally I find the most meaning in making functional items that will be used in day-to-day life.

I love how my Etsy shop fits in with my graphic design business as it gives me the chance to get out of my office and get my hands dirty. And I'm incredibly lucky that both businesses allow me to live in a place that I love...a little town called Solo in rural Missouri.

It's a great experience to watch my Etsy business grow. I started out creating items in my house...it quickly took over the entire house. My husband didn't appreciate that I used the chest freezer as a workbench to saw on and that there was sawdust all over the house! I even had saw horses set up in the bathroom. So I cleaned out the shed behind my house and now I have a proper shop.

I never thought my Etsy shop would grow like it has. But I've sure enjoyed the journey!
