Our First Project - Desk, Farmhouse Chair & Cushion

Hi, this is Cara and Kristen and we’re teaming up creatively to bring to you some really cool and unique pieces for your home.  Kristen’s task is to give vintage pieces a new life with sanding, painting, waxing, or whatever it takes! Paired with fabric designed by Cara… we’re creating one of a kind pieces that we hope will inspire you. The purpose of this blog is to showcase and share our projects with you. We’re starting here and hoping to expand to a big beautiful retail space someday! Dream big!  

Our first project together is an old secretary’s desk and chair. It needed a lot of love… sanded, painted, distressed and waxed… we then added a wooden embellishment to give it a little more detail. Cara took one of her previously designed fabrics and made a seat cushion for the farmhouse chair. We choose a fresh color palette to compliment the Duck Egg blue inside. The studs add a bit of our personalities and give it a modern flair. Of course, we both love anything girly, the cushion is finished with a mint green ruffle. 

It's for sale too!   $275.  Email or message one of us on Facebook if you're interested!
