Reclaimed Wood Striped Coffee Table

31 Jul

Multi-colored coffee table made reclaimed wooden trim boards, 1 inch thick, salvaged from an early 1900s home in Virginia. Each board is distinctly different and show various stages of wear. Table top is assembled into a diagonal pattern in alternating colors. The boards vary between stained wood, white with teal showing through, brown and a rusty red brown. Table base is very sturdy, built from 2x6s and painted white, then scraped and distressed to match the table top. Early American style legs were used and stained dark brown. The legs simply thread into the table for easy assembly. The beauty of this piece is the patina of the original worn wood. Once completed, the top was lightly sanded to remove any loose or peeling paint, then sealed with a clear dull finish varnish for preservation. Great conversation piece for your living room or even patio or deck.

Size: 28″l x 20″w x 14″h

Big Items for Sale Locally

29 Jul

We have a couple of larger pieces for sale locally: If interested please send me an email: [email protected]

Large antique Victorian mantelpiece with original beveled glass mirror. This mantle was salvaged from a Victorian home in Franklin, VA. Very good condition. This has not been restored, just repainted in white semi gloss paint and slightly distressed.

This is a pretty substantial piece.

Measures : 7ft high, 62″ wide
Fireplace opening is 36″ square

Asking $300 obo.
We do not have room for it, so no REASONABLE offer refused.



Antique White treadle sewing machine in original unrestored condition. Wooden cabinet is complete and in pretty good shape for its age. Very solid, no rot, but has some wear and nice patina. This is the 6 drawer model and was patented in 1898. Cast iron decorative legs in great shape with no rust. Machine seems to work great, the belt that’s on it is loose and very old, but the machine turns over and treadle operates freely. Appears to just need a new belt and it could be used. We’ve been using it as a decorator piece and side table, but now have no room so we need to sell it.






Reclaimed Window Chalkboard / Picture Frame / Key Rack

25 Jul

We’ve had some old windows laying around for awhile that we were going to use for a table, but just wasn’t feeling it. Since these were really simple with only two large panes, I decided to turn one pane into a chalkboard and make this chalkboard / picture frame / key rack combo…

Made from a vintage reclaimed window. Window is a two pane style, very solid. Bottom pane was painted with chalkboard surface paint. The window frame is painted, then scraped, sanded, distressed and then hand waxed. The frame has two oiled bronze hooks to hang your keys. The top pane can be left as is or serve as a picture frame to display art, photos, etc.

Size: 20″w x 23″h

We have two available – one in teal and one in barn red. Available in our Etsy shop.

Vintage 2 Drawer Oak Card Catalog – Yawman & Erbe

Made of solid oak with dovetail joints with brass hardware. In original, unrestored condition, brass has been lightly polished and wood has been hand waxed to seal in original patina. Very nice original piece. Dividers inside drawers do not match, one is wood and one is brass, so one has possibly been replaced. Back side has delaminated as shown in last photo, but other than it’s in great shape. Makes a nice decorator or storage piece.

Chalkboard Message Board Key Rack, Reclaimed Wood Upcycled Tin Toy Phone

10 Jul

Decorative hanging chalkboard message board. Made using reclaimed wood from old palettes. The homemade chalkboard was made from a piece of sanded 1/8″ thick plywood and painted with multiple coats of chalkboard paint and striped with one shot paint. There’s a tray on the bottom to hold chalk and we mounted a vintage tin toy telephone to the top as a cool conversation piece. The phone is in all original condition with the original cord and nice patina. There are two metal hooks, one on each side to hold your keys. Very unique piece and you won’t find another like it.
