Posted in Blog, Featured

You know, the older I get the more I love the fall. There are very few times in the year more splendid than the month of October.  I could give you a laundry list of reasons.  I won’t though.  There are too many.     Today I was wandering around the yard watching our two year old Landan jump into a pile of leaves I had raked together for him.  The temperature was just about as close to perfect as you could ever wish to see, and I instinctively began thinking about all of the wonderful reasons that I love this time of year. Watching two year olds jump into leaves is certainly...

Another Repurposed Chest – This Time Into A Bookcase!

Posted in Bedroom Furniture, Dressers, Featured, Living Room

Angie and I got our hands on this old chest of drawers that was actually just a chest in that there were NO DRAWERS when we got it. It was pretty clear that this piece of furniture’s days as a chest of drawers were over and it had few options for life beyond it’s initial purpose. Well, of course you all know that we love a good challenge so we talked about whether or not this piece had any repurposing potential and, being major lovers of reading and books, the idea that this would make a wonderful bookcase came to our minds. The chest is really beautiful and made of all solid...
