About

Setting an example for my daughter

That statement really does say it all. I worked in accounting for years before I had my daughter. Sometimes I loved it .... sometimes I would much rather just call in sick. For the 3 months that I was on leave with my child ... all I could think about was that I wanted her to have the best life that I could provide. So naturally ... I left my job. LOL! Something inside me knew that I had to stay home with her. I got an online at home job which worked out well for a while but I still had that nagging feeling inside that I wanted to show my daughter a different way of life. I wanted her to see me doing what I loved to do so that she would know it was possible to follow your passion!

When I wasn't working or doing the other millions of things that come with being a mom ... I would always find myself cleaning or organizing something to wind down. I would also clean, refinish or paint furniture for a hobby. I loved doing it.

I was feeling a bit burned out one day ... my daughter was sleeping ... so I thought that I would wind down by organizing her craft area. Earlier that day I had noticed that she had 4 plastic tubs stacked (more like teetering) on top of each other full of all sorts of crayons and markers and scissors and erasers and pens and pencils! It seemed like every time someone came over to visit they brought my daughter more! Even the restaurants are in on it with the little crayon packs!

The next day we made my daughter her very own (and our first) reclaimed wood caddy with 7 holes.

We have since acquired a large stash of reclaimed barn wood and just decided to go for it and make beautiful things to give that old wood a brand new purpose in life! And it weird how things work. I feel that the wood has provided me the way to give my daughter what I wanted in the first place ... to show my daughter that it is possible to follow your passion!

I love that we are able to turn that old neglected wood into beautiful, functional, useful things and I love even more that my daughter sees us creating things and creating a new life for ourselves!

Frequently asked questions

Do you take custom orders?

We're always happy to see if we can make something for you that is not already listed in our inventory. Whether it's for a certain size or different product .. we'd love to hear from you! Just use the 'message seller' link and we'll see if we can work on something just for you!

When do you ship my items(s)?

All our items are listed individually and that means they are in stock! We'll make it top priority and ship it out the same day if the post office is still open or the next day that the post office is open. If you have a custom order - we'll let you know how long your piece will take to make and ship before we begin. .

What shipping service do you use?

We use 2 USPS services. USPS flat rate priority mail (which takes 2-3 days to arrive) OR first class mail with tracking which offers an approx. 3-5 day delivery time. Sometimes we use a flat rate shipping box and sometimes it will be in an earth friendly, reused handmade box. We always put in the tracking info on your Etsy order page and you can see when your order should be there by tracking the shipment.

How do I care for my reclaimed wood products?

Never leave them soaking in water. Never put them in the dishwasher. Just use a dry rag / wet rag / or soapy wet rag to clean them if needed ... then wipe off the excess water and let them air dry. Use Howard's Butcher Block Conditioner to refresh them when needed.
