It’s always a delight to meet our customers and see the work they are doing through social media. Internet sales is usually so anonymous and faceless that it’s quite refreshing to interact with the person on the other end! Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Kim from Furniture Chic over Facebook and she shared a whole string of beautiful furniture makeovers she’s done over the last year and many of them are using our hardware.
Kim does all of the sanding and prep work herself because she refuses to let someone have buyer’s remorse over her pieces. Kinda like us! We can’t stand it if someone is dissatisfied and it’s great to partner with others that feel the same way!
Furniture Chic is out of Lenoir City, TN and really does amazing work. Kim is a true artist having gone to college for Art Education and also taught Art Education for 10 years! Here’s a quote from her Facebook page about her work,..
“I have refinished my own furniture and furniture for friends for over 17 years, but wanted to branch out and have more of a creative outlet. I use an old school method of refinishing and painting since I prefer to sand or strip and paint with oil or latex paints. I also seal with a polyurethane or a polycrylic sealer. I thank God every day. He has opened this door. I have met and made so many new fabulous friends!”
She’s does beautiful work and it speaks for itself so I’ll just post a bunch of it up below. Check out her Facebook page and remember to check with her if you are in the Lenoir City or Knoxville area and have pieces that need refinishing. With further ado…
Attention all local builders!
We recently got in a big truck load of bulk #10 polymer plated exterior deck screws. These are star drive and our price totally destroys the normal hardware store price.
We’ve got 20 pound boxes of 2″, 2 1/2″, & 3″ screws for $50. These same screws run $24 for 5 pounds at Home Depot. Get em while they last local dealers!
Too heavy to ship, it ruins the great deal, so you must pick up in store.
Forgot it was Friday! Pleasant surprise when I realized, haha! Here’s the knob for this week. The picture isn’t the best and we need yours! It is a nice little knob though and has a nice Venetian bronze finish.
Open to all comers, no catches! I’m trading knobs for pictures of your projects.
The rules are the same as every week….
I had the pleasure of visiting the Moss Avenue Antique Sale & Festival in Peoria, IL this past weekend as it was just a few blocks from my house and it had all sorts of awesome “junk’ and antique for sale. I always need something to write about and this seems right down our customer’s alley so I figured I’d just post up all the photos I got from the event.
Moss Avenue is a beautiful historic street up on the first Peoria bluff. The houses are true old style beauties and all their enormous front yards were filled with booths from local antiquers and furniture dealers. Quite the event and definitely worth the trip again next summer! I’ll give a brief explanation of some of the pictures, but most are self explanatory. I’m sorry to the businesses I don’t mention but I was having a good time and didn’t get a chance to match up the names with the booths…next year I’ll be prepared!
And now back to the antiques and collectibles! Again, I wish I could tag all these wonderful local businesses but I was derelict in my duty…
You gotta dig for the good stuff!
All sorts of American brand memorabilia from way back! I love these to rivaling benches made from old Chevy and Ford truck parts!
There were lots of handmade jewelry vendors and people doing beautiful furniture makeovers. Lots of the business were even taking custom orders from customers throughout the day so it’s a great event for finding local talent to redo your piece for you.
Right in the middle there is this beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright house! You can really tell it’s his architecture and I’m told there are actually three Wright house in Peoria.
Trinkets, jewelry, and “junk!”
The whole street is absolutely beautiful on both sides as you can from the next few shots. They even had live music on a couple of the porches up and down the block.
Overall it was a great time and I’m looking forward to attending next year and documenting the small businesses better. I did have the opportunity to meet several which I hope to be work
ing with in the near future. See you there next year if you are in the area, it’s worth the drive and remember that the early bird gets the worm! We got a couple nice pieces, one from Modern Mutations, but a lot of dealers were closing up as we didn’t get there til too late!
Back in black. Today we are going to show off some of our blogger and customer projects featuring black as the primary color.
ses our antique brass cup pulls to top off a wonderful buffet makeover. Shannon did an incredible job and makes our hardware look fantastic on the new dresser.
Hello, I know I’ve cancelled Free Hardware Friday several times lately, but I’ve got to suspend it one more week as I’ve got family coming in very shortly and it’s one of those things that needs attention all day long with all the participants. So to save myself the trouble I am just posting a coupon that will be good until we are back next Friday with another free product.
Use coupon code “FHF” for 10% off any order. Coupon is good until the start of Free Hardware Friday next week.
Have a great week everyone!
