I paint what I love and create each piece as if I'm going to display it in my own home or garden.

Hello and welcome to my Shop! I'm Laurie, the creator of Lindy&Lou. I was first introduced to painting as a young girl. My aunt had taught me to glue Popsicle sticks together to make little wooden houses and paint them with acrylic paints. From then on I was hooked and when I first decided to change my status from "Buyer" to "Seller" on Etsy, I knew exactly what I wanted to do!

I'm inspired by nature, nostalgia, and memories of simpler times. I tend to create either very simple rustic pieces, or really fun, whimsical ones. When I paint I feel happy and am transported back to those simple childhood times, so my painting reflects that.

I paint what I love and create each piece as if I'm going to display it in my own home or garden. No matter what project I undertake I put a lot of time and attention into every piece, ensuring I turn out a quality one-of-a-kind item. My aim is to create pieces that have a timeless look that can be carried through the years while dings, knicks, dents, and weathering add to their rustic charm.

I absolutely adore selling on Etsy. To me, running my Shop and creating my pieces isn't work, it's a fun, enjoyable, and a flexible solution for me and my family!

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me! Have a fantastic day! -Laurie

Welcome and thank you for checking out my shop! I am obsessed with home decor and adore anything that is rustic and beautifully aged. There is something about these styles that are cozy, warm and intimate, and who doesn't want that feeling in their home? That is what I strive for in my creations; the sense of familiarity and history that you have created in your home, now reflected in a beautiful homemade piece just for you! I paint everything myself and no two items are alike, ensuring that your pieces are truly one-of-a-kind. Enjoy, and thank you again for visiting!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

The majority of my items are designed to be used indoor or out, however outdoor items will have increased longevity if used in covered areas such as under roof eaves, patios and porches and dense tree canopies.

Sizing details

I do my best to provide accurate measurements in each listing, however they are approximate and may differ slightly from the listing details.

Are the Birdhouses useful for outdoors?

Some of my birdhouses are for decoration only, but unless otherwise specified in the listing most of them can be displayed indoors or out.

Outdoor birdhouses designed for practical use are in a separate section along with my birdefeeders. These can be used outdoors to provide shelter for our feathered friends!
