When we first started our business we would take a few days out of the week to go ride around and collect reusable trash that could be restored into something beautiful and resold for a pretty profit. We would find out when trash pick up was for neighborhoods so we would know the best days to go "trash hunting". We definitely had our favorite spots. The old cliche' which says, "your trash is another man's treasure" really was true and is what gave us our wings to fly and later soar.
We started off using new wood and trying to make it look old until we found a secret....to make it look old, use old wood! Bingo...and that was it. All those old fence panels laying on the side of the road were now becoming more interesting and what we needed for our business to work.
One day we came across some old worn out white painted fence panels. When you took the pieces a part it showed these natural patches of wood giving an authentic shabby chic farmhouse look which is definitely our favorite. We decided to offer a few of these for sale on social media and they sold within minutes and so....our official original farmhouse line was born!
Our very first farmhouse original.
In our garage is where it all began. Our little guys always wanted in on some of the action.
