4) ALLEGAN,MI, Made in Allegan, 229 Hubbard St., Allegan, MI. Open Thursday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

My furniture pieces are painted with either Annie Sloan or CeCe Caldwell’s eco-friendly chalk paint and protected with multiple coats of soft wax. Some are hand-distressed for a gently aged, shabby-chic look; some are dry-brushed for an antiqued, one-of-a-kind feel. Both paints are 100% Natural and biodegradable without VOC’s or harmful chemicals.

Keep in mind that vintage or antique furniture transformations may have nicks, bumps or slight imperfections. This is part of their character and charm and I embrace their diversity, beauty and character. Please understand that any handcrafted products are likely to have slight variations in color, texture or finish.

If you desire “perfect” and “new”- then transformed furniture is probably not your thing.

 However if you desire amazing craftsmanship like beautiful hard woods and solid construction, detailing like vintage keyholes, curves, original hardware and a unique one-of-a-kind character then White Oak Studio Vintage Transformed furniture may be just the right product for you! It is definitely mine.
