After we had our son we wanted a baby gate that was strong, but we also wanted cute decor, so loveLEEcrafter was born!

When my husband and I had our son we began to look around a baby gates, we went from traditional to modern, plastic to metal, and everything in between. Nothing worked for our son, he either figured out how to open it, pushed it right over, or it was so hideous we could not stand it. We wanted our gate to be functional not only for his safety but for our sanity. I began searching all over the internet to find a baby gate that I liked. I finally came across a picture of a dutch door and fell in love with the bottom. I instantly knew thats what I wanted our gate to look like. My husband help me draw up plans to make the gate and showed me how to build the first one. After we installed it we realize how much we loved it for its strength and its looks. I immediately wanted to start our second gate for the top of the stairs, he looked at me and said tell me when you need help mounting it. I don't think he knew the monster he created!
After a couple months past the amount of compliments we receiving from friends and family was overwhelming. Several friends wanted us to make gates for their babies and that's when I realized this was something that I could possibly do for a living. My mother had just started at Etsy store to sell some antiques around the house and asked me to sign up so that she could get some free listings. :) I started to look at other shops that are on etsy and how creative they were, which made me realizing that this was my platform and a place that I could begin to build a business.
The orders began to come in, and so did the custom request. We began to create wine racks, wall decor, and even sliding barn doors. We are always looking for new exciting projects. We recently built a farmhouse table with benches, and just completed our coffee table for our house. We will most likely be adding those to our shop very soon. Custom request are always welcome. They give us new ideas and challenge us to keep it fresh.
Our son helps us so much with everything, from gates to doors and everything in between. Handing mama screws for doors and bringing mama boards for doors. He is my employee of the year!
Thanks for looking, if you have any questions please ask us!
