On Etsy since 2014

I was born and raised with a Creative mind and spirit.

I was born and raised in Seattle Wa, the middle child of 11 kids....seven brother and 4 girls. OK, WOW is right, but oh the memories!!!! SWEET!! We are ALL creative in different ways (home builders, marble artist, dr, artists, fine finish carpenters, refrigeration) due largely to our parents varied skills and passions, dad a boat builder (built our house/kitchen) and mom a seamstress,gardener,bread maker and awesome cook to name a few. My parents were hardworking busy people!!!!

So, I have always loved working with my hands as you will see. I did many types of sewing growing up, jewelry making from silver to friendly plastic to now beaded jewelry. For many years I did and taught basketweaving selling many baskets and jewelry at art shows.

During the early years I joined the Navy for four years and spent that time in Hawaii. Hard life I know!! I married there and had four beautiful children now grown and gone. I'm now a grandmother of two beautiful grand daughters and one grandson.

As a single person on my own I became a massage therapist to support myself back in 2002 and I bought an unlivable house in 2005 that I am still renovating with an artistic touch. While still doing art shows I began painting on old windows and glass bottles for many years. Then in 2012 I think, my sister told me about Annie Sloan paint. She said, "Maggie this is right up your alley".....Many months later I saw the paint and some pieces in a shop in Tacoma Wa.....I flew home to Fl, went straight from the airport to Robyn Story Designs, picked up "Provence", the wax and brushes....Went home and started painting and haven't stopped since. This is my most favorite thing to do.....Take an old piece of furniture that nobody wants and turn it into something BEEEAUTIFUL!!! My dream as a young person was to make my own furniture....I think God has answered my prayer---I LOVE being creative in this way.....YOU are most welcome to my shop and I hope you enjoy your stay. DO check back from time to time because I'm always posting new items.....AND DO SHARE THIS SHOP WITH YOUR FRIENDS!!!

One more thing....The sweet memories of canning every summer and the camping!!! The BEST!!!

I take special care to insure each piece is in excellent condition for it's considerable age. However, since all of my pieces are re-defined furniture and antiques they may have age consistent wear and tear, which adds to their time worn shabby appeal. I would not sell anything that I wouldn't be proud to have in my own home. All items are sold "as is".

Happy Shopping!

It's SO much more then just painting!


I see the future potential of an item and go to work. From the hours spent searching for just-right items, to the prep work (which includes inspecting each piece and making all repairs, cleaning, thoroughly sanding some piece and/or stripping, painting, glazing, distressing, and top-coating. Some of my pieces are hand painted, hand sanded, and hand finished. These varieties in look and feel speak to each person according to individual taste.

Some pieces are sprayed from start to finish which makes for a super smooth look. Much more labor intensive due to the various finishes which require sanding between each coat. Those pieces will be notated when sprayed.

Let me say this again as I did in the Welcome section.
I take special care to insure each piece is in excellent condition for it's considerable age. However, since all of my pieces are re-defined furniture and some are antiques they may have age consistent wear and tear, which adds to their time worn shabby appeal and sold "as is". I would not sell anything that I wouldn't be proud to have in my own home. More pictures always available upon request.

All pieces are solid wood unless noted. I employ artistic license when deciding to paint the inside of some drawers.

I hope you and your family enjoy the pieces I've loved giving a new life of
adventure to.
