We're Annie and Greg Witkamp (aka the Wits). We salvage, refurbish, design and sell (or hoard) furniture and collectibles. (We also offer our design services, advice, and consultations on furniture or home improvement projects. Contact us in the comments or by email at aandgwit at gmail)
We use craigslist, estate/garage sales, and free items from the curb to breathe new life into. For home improving, we rely on (other than craigslist) outlet and architectural salvage stores, flea markets, and our skills from years of budget living...which involves a lot of using our own two hands to get projects done. It's not much fun or as fulfilling if we're not sweating and getting dirty.
We're all about passion, determination and the challenge of bringing things-be it furniture, houses, machinery-back to glory.
In December of 2011 we became first time homeowners. The goal is to renovate our 1952 home, every single room and large lot, in a little over 2 years then move to Seattle in the summer of 2014 for Greg's day job. Demo, renovation, budget decorating, DIY and more.
We love doing these projects so much maybe we'll make a full-time business out of them, who knows?
