Thinking Outside of the Box!

Today a customer was in the shop looking for a piece of furniture to serve as a bathroom vanity. She is deciding between a sofa table and a ladies writing desk and will just have a hole cut in the piece to insert the bowl. It's a great idea to think of using pieces in ways other than how they were intended - such as using an old door or shutters or ornate mirror for a headboard, using an old ballister or architectural piece to turn into a lamp, or use a long dresser as a buffet!

Tomorrow I will be posting pictures of new pieces in the new shop with prices! I know it helps to see the prices on the blog so look for that tomorrow!
