Bring vintage furniture back to life
Welcome to our eclectic collection
We do have a dizzying array of almost everything from Objets d’art (that’s French for things that look like art), signs, pictures, mirrors, pillows, scarves, candles, clothing, chalk paint, supplies and of course, chalk painted furniture.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our site and would like to invite you to stop by if you happen to be in the area. Even on the days we aren’t posted as open we are usually in the shop or somewhere nearby. You can always give us a call at (641) 691-0775.
A quick tour of our latest pieces
Classy 8 Drawer Dresser
This piece kicked around the workshop for quite a while before it “spoke” to us. We toyed with a few ideas, maybe something in a greyish white? Nah. Well, we had just sold a red piece? Nope. It was a beautiful old piece that needed some attention. After a thorough Krud Kutter cleaning I decided to try a simple rub. Howard Feed-N-Wax Wood Polish & Conditioner is my go to. The piece woke up right before our eyes and Daun did the rest. The Japanese artwork is highlighted by gold gilding. A very nice piece brought back-to-life. 24″D x 38″W x 53″H. $300.
Painted Vintage Dresser
We just finished the beautiful chalk painted dresser, 45″H x 36″W x 20″D, with a beautiful floral presentation on the front and a bit of whimsy added to sides of the drawers. $225.

Les Beaux Esprits Inspirent Les Autres – ‘Beautiful minds inspire others.’
Beautifully Reclaimed 5 Drawer Bureau
2 Turtle doves and Peacock on a Paris Bureau. Sounds like a Christmas carol. I’ll stop. This beautifully reclaimed 5 drawer bureau just had too much promise to pass by. We think the effort was worth it. 46″H x 31″W x 20″D – $95

This side chest has a writing surface that tucks nicely away when not in use. This piece was wonderful to begin with, but, with some creative attention to detail, it went from ‘yeah, that’s nice’ to “Oooh LaLa, C’est magnifique”. Great accent piece for any living space or bedroom. $225
Made from old army tents. We have two sizes.
Rodeo themed buffet
This piece could be just about anything it wanted. A buffet or even a T.V. stand in a man cave. But not a changing table in a nursery.
