and opened another etsy shop. I know, I am a total glutton for punishment, but Mark and I have started salvaging all of the hardwood flooring scraps from my dad's place and turning them into the cutest wood wall hanging vases and peg racks. It just didn't seem to "go" with the other items in my shop, so the new shop is called. . .wait for it, those that know us will laugh. . .
Ok, for those of you that don't know us personally, the name is kind of ironic in that Mark can literally make (or fix) almost anything. I get these (crazy) ideas about making dad's wood scraps into some teacher gifts and he is left to figure out the details (size, how to hang it, etc.).
Here are a few photos to help tell the story.
Here is "dad" and the hardwood flooring he is using on the ceilings of the Texas house he's renovating. Every single room in this house (originally built in the 60's and quite awful when we started renovation - search blog for "property is you're curious) has either oak (pink, swamp or red) or maple ceilings. Photo 1 is maple, photo 2 is oak and the photo right above is a combination of the two, during the staining process.
Our projects so far.
