Re-opening the Shop

Welcome back!

We are happy to have you visiting us. I cannot believe it has been two years since we last posted on the blog. Where does time go? Two years ago I decided to return to school for my masters and I am happy to say that I will graduate in December! In order to meet that goal, I had to put the booth and the shop on hold. During that time I have completed small projects for friends and family but nothing large scale. As school is wrapping up, we are easing back into The Shop and The Booth. I could not be more excited to be painting furniture and working with my dad in his shop!

We are next on the list for a booth at The Olde Factory and hoping a spot opens soon! While we wait, we are working on some new projects and custom orders. Until then I thought you would like to take a trip down  memory lane and look at some of the projects we completed over the years.

Thank you for visiting and supporting us as we re-open The Booth and Shop again! We are thrilled to have you be part of this journey and story.

Going for a swim...

Lily does not get her picture taken enough because someone else (Blue) seems to monopolize that spot. Lily may be the best dog we have ever had. She is so sweet and amazing with the kids! I am not sure this family will ever be without a Labrador Retriever. Lily is our third lab and each one was pretty awesome!

Lily loves the pond and will swim at every opportunity! This weekend she enjoyed some afternoon swims to cool down. Blue was asleep on the sofa and never realized what he was missing!

Ghost will follow Lily down to the pond and stare at her the entire time. I am not sure if she is trying figure out what Lily is doing or wishing she could jump in and swim, too.

The beautiful pink lily pads floated away with the flood of 2011. Last year we started to replant some Lily pads and this year we had our first bloom! So pretty.

I guess these two spiders think they are a great place to hide. Do you spy the second spider? His legs are holding onto a pedal.

It is almost time to start fall clean up. I am not really to say good bye to summer yet...wishing for a few more days of swimming!

Painting the doors gray...

To paint or not to paint the interior doors? That was the question for the last year. Should I paint them black, gray, or maybe a light blue. Finally I decided on gray and searched Pinterest for the ideal color of gray. I decided on BM Chelsea Gray but when we went to Benjamin Moore and I looked at the paint swatch it looked too light. Maddie and Sarah were with me and we took a vote.  We left with a gallon of Kendall Charcoal, two shades darker than Chelsea Gray. "It's only paint" was my mantra. 

After painting the downstairs doors we moved to the upstairs. The gray matches perfect in the girls room with their furniture! (Don't mind the stain on the floor from my messy painting...hopefully new carpet is on its way in the future.)

A view of the upstairs hallway. The darker shade of gray is perfect with the sun light hallway. 
Again, don't mind the flooring, it is next on the "to do list."

BM Kendall Charcoal you may be my new favorite paint color. 
Thinking you would look beautiful on a piece of furniture :)
