I have been selling my projects in consignment stores for the last 3 years now. I mostly deal in one of a kind furniture that I try not to replicate. I sometimes make the same project but change up colors along with glazes and waxes. Please enjoy what I have to offer and let me know your thoughts.

Vintage bird feeder.

An old porch post, some paint, hooks, bird feeders, and topped off with a copper tea pot. We also use another one as a plant holder.

windows in a pergola

I designed this unique pergola with windows in both corners.

Backyard grape arbor

A couple old porch posts, an old wooden window, couple 2X4's, some wire, some paint, and a couple grape plants. It's a grape arbor!

What is holding the wine glasses?

I'm sure someone has seen this project before.

Wine cabinet from scratch

This picture really doesn't do this project justice, but gives you an idea of what I was trying to accomplish. The wood was just laying around the house from the last owner. The door of the cabinet...

Bridge in the backyard.

Unusual bridge because the railing is a headboard and footboard.

Chandelier under the pergola

Same story, same ending.

Vintage wine storage

This is one of the best finds I ever had fun with.....and it turned out great! Old mail sorter from the New England area coupled with an old buffet. My wine rack! Added a couple wooden onlays for...

Re: Starry night Necklace

All of your jewelry has it's own unique designs. I just think it's really neat how you mix and match and make things work! Very nice!

Re: Me, my shelf, and I

Cool shelf and great conversation piece! Interesting stories to share with company...really cool! A piece with real meaning.

Re: Free to Fabulous!

Awesome! Great color combination and well thought out! Cool project and conversation piece.

Re: Vintage bird feeder.

For jlb1957...I used a 3/8 inch metal rod. Drilled about 8 inches into the wood, inserted the rod, and had 12 to 14 inches of the rod for inserting into the ground. Even though it doesn't seem like the rod will hold the post, it does! We've had strong wind storms that hasn't even affected the post. The tea pot on top is caulked so that no water will get into it. The birds love this!

Re: Holiday Party Ideas for the Wine Lover

Classy and old...awesome! Really nice Andrea!

Re: Jewelry Organizer

Nice job Suzanne! A real unique piece!

Re: Our Kitchen Island Transformation

Nice find! Wonderful job! Nice choice of stain with the white. And!...you found time to think of a place for wine!

Re: old world bench

Great choice to use both those pieces together...really nice bench! Curious to know where you found a headboard as detailed as that one...again...really nice!

Re: Ceiling Fixture Pedestal Bowls

Cool idea! Most antique shops have a lot of cool styles of those glass ceiling light covers and I've always wondered what to do with them...now I do...great idea!

Re: Vintage Door Corner Shelf

Nice job! I really like the color and they way you shaped the shelves! Excellent! Curious to know what kind of wax you used and what color, if any.

Re: Reclaimed Materials Potting Bench

Really decorative and rustic looking. I really enjoy these types of projects because, as you say, they can have multiple purposes if you think outside the box. Also, I'm not sure what you are displaying to left on the wall, but that is a cool idea also! Plus the buckets, again, nice!

Re: HUGE...Antique Corbel Floor Lamp

Most incredible lamp I've ever seen! Those corbels are awesome! Great project!

Re: Vintage wine storage

I guess I should have mentioned that these pieces took hours of sanding before the primer coat. The mail sorter was given 3 coats of paint in each mail holder. The funny thing about the whole project was the reaction we got from the guy I bought the mail sorter from...he said, "I knew I should've charged you more!"

Re: My First Junk Chair

That IS a beautiful chair! And to think it was headed for the dump! The harlequin pattern is really nice.

Re: Steamer Trunk Bookcase

What a neat project! Cool idea.
