Each of my products are cut, assembled, painted by hand and handlettered. Every piece is made with natural solid wood, and therefore may experience changes in color and placement with age. Please expect minor imperfections, such as knots, cracks, nicks, and holes–beautiful details that make each handcrafted piece unique. I do not claim product perfection, nor do I aspire to it. I take pride in the fact that no two products are alike. Each piece is finished by hand, stained or painted. Customers should expect slight imperfections and differences with every piece. This, to me, is the very definition of authentic farmhouse style decor.
