Announcement   In Portland? Come see our furniture in person! We have a display of our designs at Main Street Vintage home in Vancouver, WA. You can purchase some of our designs there.
1817 Main Street, Vancouver WA

We offer solid BAMBOO, pine, solid poplar or solid oak as wood choices. Mostly everything pictured is in Pine because that is our most popular seller. BAMBOO is a grass and grows quickly, making it eco friendly and sustainable. It is harder than wood!! Solid pine makes beautiful affordable quality furniture. Pine has been used to make furniture for hundreds of years and many of those pieces still exist today! It is a beautiful economical option for real solid wood furniture. It is light weight so very easy to move around and because pine trees grow much quicker than walnut and other hard woods, it is a more sustainable choice. Our pine has less knots than usual and has a beautiful grain pattern and variations in colors. Poplar is harder than pine with a lovely smooth modern grain and oak is the hardest wood, extremely hard and has a prominent grain pattern. Most people do not prefer the look of Oak so poplar is a wonderful hard wood perfect for that mid century look.

Everything is made to order unless it is in our "ready to ship" section. Each item states in the description what the turn around times are. Please read carefully :) All turn around times are just an estimate, because we get many orders daily, it is really hard to keep up with the correct estimated ETA's. We always ship orders as quickly as we can. You won't hear any silly excuses. We will be honest when you contact us and your order is running late.

Because everything we build is made to order and most of it is custom, it is very difficult to determine how long orders will take. Because we are so busy building and shipping orders, we cannot always send order updates, so please do contact us if you would like to know the ETA of your order. I will always respond to emails immediately. I may not always have an ETA yet but I will do my best to keep you informed.

Our custom built hand made furniture is worth the wait! Sure you can go buy something now from a store but that just isn't nearly as special.

We always try to respond to your questions in a timely manner. You can expect a quick response 7 days a week.

We adore this table!!!! We still don't have a rug yet. Hahaha. We love that it was handmade by an artist . And we wont walk into anyone with this same coffee table. ****also, at first the table was uneven after screwing on the legs. BUT like all wood give it 3 days to settle and BAM! Table is perfectly level. We are impressed. And will order more items from them soon. Best customer service ever.

About

Etsy helped dreams come true!

We started out fixing up old furniture and giving it a new life, as a hobby on the weekends. When we both lost our jobs we had more time to get more creative. We started transforming antique sewing machine tables into creative laptop desks. Once those were becoming more difficult to find we moved on to mid century style furniture as we began to love and admire the style. Such amazing style they had back then! We shopped at garage sales and estate sales looking for mid century tables to refinish and sell. That also became difficult to find at affordable prices. Mid Century furniture is not easy to find at low prices.

So, finally we decided to attempt actually building the furniture ourselves. We started out with a tiny little record player cabinet and a bookcase that we picked up for $4 at a garage sale and based those items on our construction. We added our own style and a modern touch and created a design of our very own.

After the first few pieces sold on Etsy (that did take a while) we started getting requests for other things. TV stands, desks, nightstands, etc.... Now we have a huge line of furniture that we offer in custom sizes and colors! Our customers love us and we love our customers! We are so excited to have accidentally fallen into this business and we are so lucky that we found something we are both great at. We never imagined our new career would be our own business building hand crafted custom furniture. It is a dream come true.

It was not easy when we first started out. We lived in a small 2 bedroom house. No garage, no shop, no covered patio or workspace. We turned our 2nd bedroom into a woodshop and as our sales increased, our house became a woodshop. Eventually we were able to afford a tough shed out back to work in. That was a tight space but at least we had our 2nd bedroom back! Removed dust from the walls and ripping out the floor to replace it. Not many can say they had a table saw set up in their bedroom.

Thanks to all of our loyal customers, we were able to purchase a home with a real workshop space in March of 2015! We are now vendors at a lovely store Downtown Vancouver called Main Street Vintage Home. Come check it out!

Thank you so much for reading our story and for choosing us to furnish your house. We work really hard to make your home pretty!

Shipping dates and turn around times are just an estimate! It is very difficult to predict an exact shipping time as we get several orders in at random times and everything is customized. We can't predict how many orders we will be getting in a certain amount of time. Please be patient, we will get your furniture order out as soon as we can. We work really hard to get orders out as fast as we can. We like to build quickly but still keep our high quality.

Furniture most often cannot be returned. If you are unhappy with your furniture purchase, we will handle it by a case by case basis, please contact us immediately if you have concerns about your furniture.

Additional policies and FAQs
Do NOT sit on the furniture. Our furniture is sturdy and made of solid wood but the leg mounting brackets are not meant for extreme weight. All of our furniture has specific uses. TV stands can hold TV's and electronic equipment. Coffee tables are for placing small items on, resting legs or feet on, drinks, etc.... but not for sitting. The leg mounting brackets cannot handle the weight of a person.

When moving your furniture, always pick it up and move. More than 1 person will be required for moving larger pieces. Sliding furniture across the floor when it has weight on it, will result in leg brackets breaking. We are not responsible for damage or injury in result of placing too heavy of objects on your furniture, sitting on your furniture or sliding your furniture without lifting it up.
