We've enjoyed the last year working with two Vintage Type Market Retailers. We were with the Vintage Market Home in Wyandotte and Honeycomb Creative here locally in Monroe for the past year. We love both the stores and their offerings. However, for our business, we decided to take a different direction. We left Vintage Market Home in August. We are with Honeycomb until the beginning of the year and then will re-evaluate. We currently have some stock in at Honeycomb Creative and we will be revamping our offerings to them soon.
As always, if you are a local customer and wish to pick up an order contact me through Etsy or at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have worked with brides in picking up wedding party orders at our place. I have also worked with local buyers who would just rather just save the shipping and come do a porch pick up
Holidays are coming - start looking for our Christmas offerings. I have already started posting several items such as Christmas sachet bags, Christmas herbal bulbs, Christmas swags, Birdseed wreaths (big and small) and Christmas tree bird seed favors/ornaments. Our Winter themed bouquet offerings are also listed such as our winterberry bouquet, Celtic Meadow, Love-in-the-Midst. We still have our Fall and Thanksgiving offering up and are 10% off currently such as birdseed favors, wreaths, swags, wheat or oat stacks, sunflower arrangements and more.
New to the shop! We are now offering some mason jar floral designs! See pictures below.
Our Kitchen Redesign pics are posted here! We worked with Dayna at Honeycomb Creative @ 415 N. Monroe Street, Monroe, Mi to get this done. She was a wealth of knowledge and guided us in this process. They have a variety of Fusion Mineral paint colors at Honeycomb . We used Midnight Blue and Putty. We LOVE how it turned out. Hope it inspires others to give it a try! We used a paint spray - Dayna allowed us to use hers and then my hubby went and bought us our own. We did have use a brush on a smaller areas. Dayna really walked us through the process with instructions how is best to handle a kitchen reno on old cabinets. Fusion paint is really nice and it made a huge difference in our cabinets and design. We did have white cabinets with Cranberry red walls. Stop in and see the folks at Honeycomb Creative if you are in the Monroe, Mi area. They are so willing to help you with the Fusion Paints. You can also go the Fusion Paint website or google repainting cabinets with Fusion. There are a lot of blogs out there from crafty people who repainted their cabinets or other projects.
My tidbit of info is - make sure you clean your cabinets really well in order remove grease. TSP is a great product to clean/prep the cabinets first. Remove all the hardware from doors and hinges from cabinets. My hubby set up a makeshift paint shop in our attached garage. Our barn was a bit too dusty. He used saw horses with a board across them to lay out the doors and did one side at a time. He also used tarps on floor. Some people even tent with tarps. We did have to use a primer. Why? Well we had a oil-based paint on the cabinets, which would not allow the Fusion to adhere very well. It was beading. So we went to Lowe's and got a bonding primer. Just ask your paint dealer for a bonding primer if you run into adherence issues. Then after priming all doors and the cabinets and allowing them to dry , we were able to spray Fusion. You will have to use a paint brush on smaller areas and base boards etc. Being novices, we were going to do this in a weekend, but we found quickly it's not really a weekend sort of project given the issues we ran into. I would recommend probably taking more like 3-5 days. Plan for more rather than less in terms of timing. Besides any issues you may run into you have to remove and clean existing hardware (if reusing), plus allow drying time between coats if you are using a primer. This all takes time. If you are painting wood cabinets that are not painted already, I would recommend meeting with someone at Honeycomb or looking up instructions with Fusion as to what is the best approach.
