DIY FURNITURE & SF BAY EVENTS: New Furniture in Shop + Customer Photos + Fairfax Flea @TheGarageFfx

I haven’t forgotten you, okay- don’t worry. I’ve just been busy making things! This month has been a whirlwind of craftiness and furniture couture that I haven’t had time to tell you all about it! There are lot of pieces that I have completed that sold too fast for me to post about them- but I’ll still show you the photos. So, here we go!

So there you have it. The reason I’ve been so absent. Hope you can forgive me. I also wanted to share three customer photos that really have got me excited. The first is from Dhanya, who bought the Art Deco Coffee Table and updated it to suit her living room groove. Check it out!

Pretty sweet huh? Check out how cute the 1970’s Credenza Bookshelf looks in Shannon’s apartment.

This is definitely one of my favorite pieces (besides the Knoll, of course).

Lastly, checkout Terrill’s dreamy New York apartment reading nook, featuring a sun ray wall clock from our shop!

I am always so pleased to see how furniture from the shop takes on a life of its own after it leaves my hands.  I strongly believe that just because it’s old, doesn’t mean furniture is dead.  It just needs another chance to live on.  And that’s what I’m here for.  If you have bought a piece of furniture from me, please shoot me an email with a photo of it in your house (email is on the home page).

In other news, I will be at Fairfax Flea at The Garage in downtown Fairfax this Saturday!  We had so much fun last time that I had to do it again.

Saturday July 20, 10am-5pm

Allyson won’t be there this time, she will be off living the Birthday Life…because well this month is her birthday!  Since I knew I wouldn’t get to see her, I brought over a little surprise for her so we could celebrate early.  So after 8 hours of shooting new items for our shops, we cracked open a bottle of bubbly and sliced ourselves some sour cream angel food cake. Deeeeelish!
