About

Creating something original and beautiful from discards is a passion shared by my family

Creating something original and beautiful from discards is a passion shared by our family. Our Backyard Studio was born quite literally out of our back yard, with a summer spent with my husband and children scavenging, cutting, and painting all manner of things we found on our property. From there, it has grown into a full-fledged art business. All my work is painted the very old-fashioned way, completely free-hand without the use of stencils, patterns, or computers. Currently, we have a wide variety of typography signs on reclaimed wood, illustrative artwork on wooden plates, custom personalized wood slice ornaments, and one-of-a-kind clay sculptures. We also love custom work!

Thank you so much for choosing us to create that one-of-a-kind piece of art for your home or special gift! In 2014 we made the difficult decision to close our retail storefront, and completely change our lifestyle for the sake of our family. Our son was diagnosed at age 6 with autism spectrum disorder, and his care currently demands both of our attention at home. Your patronage allows us to earn a living doing what we absolutely love, while providing for his care and home education, as well as that of our younger daughter. We love our balance of work, home, education, and play, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support!

We started this venture literally in our back yard. My husband and I create together outside as often as possible, with our young children playing and occasionally giving their ideas and opinions. This is truly a family business, very beloved to us, and we are so happy to share it with you!

The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:

Returns and exchange details
We generally do not accept returns. However, if there is a problem with your order, please let us know within 7 days of receipt, and we will do what we can to make you a happy customer. Shipping and handling fees are not refunded, and the item must be returned in its complete original condition.

Due to the handmade nature of our products, each item will likely have minor imperfections – our philosophy is that this adds the charm and individuality of artwork made by hand instead of a machine. In most cases, we use reclaimed / repurposed materials to create our art, thus no two items will turn out exactly the same. Returns due to these characteristics will not be accepted, as they are the very nature of our work. All that said, we do not equate shoddy workmanship with “charm” – we create with quality in mind. Detailed photos are provided so that you can see exactly what you are getting – and because every computer monitor is different, we also describe the item as clearly as possible.

By placing your order, it is assumed that you have read and agreed to the product details and shop policies, and have examined these photos. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have before you purchase, we are happy to help you!

Damages: we will take great care in packing your item. If for some reason it is broken during shipment (which is very rare), please report the damage to us immediately so that we have time to issue a claim to USPS. We will decide together how we proceed from there in regards to refunding or replacing your item.

Payment: Credit/Debit Card payments via Etsy Payments or via PayPal (you do not have to have a Paypal account).

Please check turnaround time for each item, as each is different depending.
Some items are ready to ship, but most are custom or made to order. Custom or made-to-order items have a separate processing time, as listed in the item description. Please let us know if you need your order by a certain date for an event, so we can give your shipment some extra care.

Our business days are Monday thru Friday (West Coast time). Closed (family time): Saturday, Sundays, and Holidays.

Shipping: We typically ship via USPS First Class and Priority Mail, from Washington State. High-volume shipping times (such as Christmastime) and inclement weather conditions may cause unavoidable shipping delays.

Shipping charges includes all costs associated with shipping your order, and are not refunded on the rare case of a return. We absorb any excess shipping charges, and refund you any overpayments of significance. Tracking and insurance is included.

International: We do ship internationally, please contact us for a quote. Please note that shipping charges do not include any customs fees charged by your country. We do not have knowledge or control over these charges, as they are imposed by your country, not Etsy. Each country is different, please see your customs office for information regarding international shipping for your country.

Errors: Please check your shipping address carefully for errors. If your order is returned due to an incorrect address on your part, you will be required to cover the cost of re-shipping the item. If the error is ours, we will of course take care of it at our own expense.
