We're Annie and Greg Witkamp (aka the Wits). We salvage, refurbish and design furniture. We also remodeled our first 1952 home in Minnesota, loved it so much that we want to find another fixer-upper and work our magic near Seattle. (The Pacific Northwest was the goal we worked hard to achieve for 7 years and we made it!)
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.
