We're Annie and Greg Witkamp (aka the Wits). We salvage, refurbish and design furniture and homes. 2015 is all about remodeling our second 1949 home near Seattle after following our dreams in 2014 to move to the Pacific Northwest. It took many many years of hardwork in the Midwest, but we made it! There's a lot we plan to accomplish now that we're here.
After college we moved from our homestate of Indiana to a small college town called Northfield in Minnesota, spent a few years going stircrazy in apartments, then found our first home. We put our time into remodeling and finished the house over the next 2 or so years. We loved it so much that we found another fixer-upper in Washington 3 months after moving here. A house we plan to work our magic on once again.
For the furniture side of our lives we use craigslist, estate/garage sales, and free items found on 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 or houses-back to glory.
