Announcement   Keeping vintage alive!!
All my upcycled/repurposed items come from thrift stores, garage sales, estate sales or my own home, and hand painted for various types of home decor; making it unique and fun! I also enjoy "picking" vintage & antique items I may find along my travels!
Many of my goodies are vintage and/or not new which adds to the dimension and character! I like to take my time to pick out my items and colors, so I will steadily expand my shop with repurposed vintage decor; along with other vintage collections.
I come from a family of pack rats - so vintage & crafting runs in my blood!
If you would like something reserved, or a change in color send me a message so I can accommodate :) I paint with chalk paint, acrylic and glass paint & shop various craft stores, so I can purchase any color that you request!! And am happy to make a custom order.
My facebook page & pinterest board is also titled Upcycled Cottage Decor - have a great day!!!!!

About

Fun with vintage & quality items to upcycle for home decor!!

I became inspired to begin upcycling and chalk painting shortly after I moved into a property built by The Shaker people from 200 years ago. My first project was to repurpose my country style side bench to use as a coffee table - I used Annie Sloan's Old Violet and fell in love with the color and how it turned out!! Then my obsession with chalk painting took off; I taught myself thru You Tube and ideas from Pinterest. It helps that I am a "leftie" and play violin - thus the art & music talent comes from within :) Growing up, I spent alot of time with my German grandma; she taught me how to sew & make clothes, along with embroidery!
Also, I have been a seller on Ebay for over 9 years, with a 100% rating that I work hard at! My profile name is "chesterboxer8" - so please check out my reviews :) I ship my items out carefully and quickly, and enjoy talking with people from all around the country!

Welcome to my repurposed creations using chalk paint & acrylics, to fit into various types of home decor. I also sell vintage items that are in very good condition - either repurposed or left alone :) I value customer service, so feel free to message me with any questions!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits

Returns and exchanges
I try to describe each of my listings accurately and note any wear or concerns that is out of the ordinary.

Any returns must be initiated within 7 days of receipt, and returned in the original condition and packaging sent. A refund will be given for the item's purchase price, not including shipping.

All orders are carefully packaged, but if an item is broken or damaged in shipping due to myself, I will gladly provide your choice of a full refund or compatible item; USPS Priority Mail has $100 insurance included if package is damaged or stolen - I am not responsible for the postal service if they mishandle or throw the package around - I clearly label fragile items and carefully wrap & pad them (sorry I have to state this - but lately there have been issues with this!!)

Please be aware that computer monitor settings vary and a return will not be granted due to color variances.
I am happy to answer any questions that you may have as well as sending additional photos; also, I try to provide various views of lighting in my pictures - occasionally there may a shadow to a picture - using the zoom function will provide the best details in that case. Photography is not my forte!
Payment
I accept paypal, major credit cards & Etsy gift cards. If you want to pay by check or money order - send me a message so we can arrange something (once payment clears, I would immediately ship out your order)
Shipping
All orders are shipped within 1-3 business days of purchase, with the exception of Sundays and holidays (if for some reason I have a delay I will let you know).

COMBINED SHIPPING: I am happy to combine shipping on multiple items purchased. Please contact me prior to purchase and I will give you an exact shipping quote.

OVERAGE: any shipping overcharge of $2 or more will be refunded back thru your method of payment

METHOD of shipping: All orders are sent via USPS Priority Mail, Fed-Ex, or UPS - I try to find the best shipping price.

RATES: based on calculated shipping; feel free to message me for an accurate rate for combined shipping, or to double check the cost.
All orders are tracked and insured - you will receive a tracking number when your package ships.

ADDRESS: It is the buyers responsibility to make sure that the address on file with Etsy and Paypal is up to date and correct.

INTERNATIONAL:
I ship via the United States Postal Service - First Class International & Priority; also FedEx may be an option for heavy or larger items.
Additional policies and FAQs
I want you to be 100% satisfied with your purchase! Please do not hesitate to ask any questions that you may have :)
VINTAGE: Please keep in mind my items are vintage from my own home, thrift stores and garage sales - they are not in perfect/new condition - any out of the ordinary defects I will put in my listings; otherwise the minor flaws contribute to the look and decor! Every piece has it's own life's story, and in some way it comes out in it's shabby cottage personality :)

I am happy to change the color of my vintage mirrors and goodies (if a color change is a possibility) for a $5-10 charge (depending upon the time and color availability)
