These are even more lovely in person. I honestly could not be any happier with these - they are so perfect and completely exceeded my expectations! The shipping was fast and they were packaged nicely. I highly recommend this seller! Thank you so much!! ❤🌸

Seller refused to honor mistakes caused by her misunderstanding. Request was clearly written and agreed by seller. However, when the item didn't turn out as promised, she said she misunderstood and refuse to do a free exchange because it's a custom piece. Due to time was at essence and I was planing to use this piece for my wedding which was only a week away, i wasn't able to order a new one and had to find other options.

Customer did not provide clear instructions and shipping policy states the following: 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: Custom or personalised orders Perishable products (like food or flowers) Digital downloads Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons) The item ordered was both custom and personalized but I did still offered her store credit for them but customer refused, stating "I don't think I have enough time to go through all the hassle of returning, getting store credit, wait again for you to send the proof and make new one, not to mention shipping time, for sure it won't be able to make it before I leave."

About

Making beautiful things out of junk.

I'm passionate about wood and I love junk. Upcycling and creating unique, one-of-a-kind pieces with reclaimed wood and found objects naturally became my calling. It took me a while but I love what I do now and I'd like to share my creations with you.

Aside from working primarily with old/used material, I've also adopted the culinary trend known as "nose to tail" eating. Rather than eating, I try to use every aspect of my material, from bark to wood chips and anything in between. Everything is used, nothing is wasted.

I also enjoy pairing together unconventional materials such as fur and metal. I enjoy creating jarring juxtapositions between material but overall I prefer a rustic/industrial or shabby chic aesthetic. I also appreciate a live edge/modern look.

Categories I specialize in:

Ottomans
Tables (side, coffee, dining, etc)
Storage (boxes, coat racks, shelves)
Lighting (lamps, sculptural lighting)
Houseware (cutting/serving boards, candle holders, coasters, etc)
Jewelery (earrings, necklaces, brooches, cuff links, etc)
Art (scultural pieces, wall art)

I also take custom orders and commissions. If you have an object/material you'd like upcycled I can be of help!
