Mid-Life Changes

I am a 40-something happy single mom to a beautiful 8-year old boy. I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1997 and began a 14 year career working as a legal assistant. When I finally realized corporate work was stealing my soul I quit my job, sold my house and embarked on a new adventure doing what I spent most of my free time doing—refinishing old, tired furniture with color and creativity..

I now focus on creating unique, one of a kind pieces using discarded or reclaimed wood. With a little creativity and a lot of hard work I am able to transform a pile of old wood into an eclectic table (or bench, desk, frame or headboard). This makes me very happy!

I rely heavily on word-of-mouth referrals. Take a look around my Etsy shop, and if you like what you see spread the word to your family and friends!

If you'd like to see what I've been up to lately check out my facebook page www.facebook.com/happy.home.austin or website happyhomeaustin.com. There you will find photos of my latest projects and perhaps a little inspiration for your own custom piece!

I rejuvenate, spruce and upcycle old, tired wood to create unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. I love doing custom work! I will work closely with you to build just the right piece that expresses your personality and defines the space it inhabits.

If you need to cancel an order after I have started building, I will refund your payment less 10% for work already done.

I currently accept PayPal and all major credit cards. Add an additional 1.5% fee on purchase price when using a credit card.

Texas residents pay 8.25% sales tax.
I do my best to ship your item within 5 days of received payment for ready-made items. Turnaround time for custom pieces is about 4 weeks. I will ship the most economical way to your location. These include USPS, UPS and LTL freight shipping companies.

For larger furniture pieces I take the time to find you the most reasonable price with a quality shipper to your area. This is typically done via freight. LTL Freight carriers offer "curbside" delivery and will not take your packages inside. Someone must be present to receive and sign for the shipment. These policies cut the cost of shipping larger items way down, but may not be most convenient. Additionally, the larger items take more time to pack securely, and so your patience is appreciated with the delivery of these pieces.

Please contact me about shipping costs before purchasing. Charges will also include packing materials, and insurance, should you decide to have the item insured.
Refunds and Exchanges
I work very closely with each of my customers to ensure that you get exactly what you envisioned. I send pictures throughout the process so you're never left guessing how it will look or if you will like it.

However.... stuff happens.

If your order arrives damaged, I will do everything I can to fix the problem, even if that means having it shipped back to me for repair.

If your order arrives and was not at all what you were expecting, I will take it back and give you a partial refund. You will be required to pay for the return shipping, as well as a 10% restocking fee. I put a lot of work into my pieces and want you to love what you purchase from me!
Additional policies and FAQs

Can I get a table made that looks exactly like one you've done before?

Probably not. There are lots of variables that make something look the way it does, including wood type, grain and color. I get materials from many different places which creates a lot of variation. And there is no creation "recipe."
