Upcycled Pieces

UPCYCLED PIECES

Small Signs

These two signs below are made out of an old, old door that completely fell apart. I got it in Waco, Texas from my favorite junk shop in the world– the Junky Monkey

Skulls

Kinda like Georgia O’Keeffe, but 3D and not as cool.

 

Porch Signs

For these signs, I always like to use wood we find out and about: my fifth grade teacher’s fence that blew over in Hurricane Harvey, the wood from the old football stadium, torn down house or barn, etc.

 

Jewelry Holders

Some of these use mesquite cut in the eighties in Edna, some use a different wood. The antlers are all from somewhere in Texas, as well. I use mine standing like this, but some people that have bought them prefer to nail them up and hang their jewelry that way. Some people have told us they don’t use them for jewelry at all but for towels or scarves.

Wine Racks

Our wine racks are made with repurposed wood and horseshoes. They’re just the right size: not too big that it won’t fit on the wall, but not too small that it can’t serve any purpose. It can hold two bottles of wine (meanwhile you can have 2-3 opened in the fridge!) or can be used for towels, coats, scarves, or anything else in need of hanging.

Throw Pillows

All pillows are sewn with love, originally designed, and sewn shut by hand with needle and thread.

These boards below were made from Ganado, TX’s stadium that was demolished in May of 2018 after serving the town’s high school sports program for decades. I made these momentos as a way to keep history alive for all of us who played on the field, ran on the track, or sat in the bleachers.
