Howdy! We are so glad you are here in our little corner of the world <3
Our names are Daniel and Christina Woodcock. We live in Southeast Georgia, about 20 minutes outside of Savannah. We have been married for 10 years and of that 10 years, we have been repurposing and upcycling furniture and thrift store pieces for 7 years. Our passion is saving old, outdated furniture and items that would be considered junk or trash to someone else. What started as a hobby has grown into my (Christina) full-time business.
Daniel is a full-time police officer who enjoys serving his community and has been doing so for the last twenty years. When he is not at work, he is helping me with projects, hauling and unloading furniture, and thrifting with me. I am one lucky woman! Here is my man in blue, isn’t he handsome?
I have two grown children, Kristin and Jimmy. They are both married living happy and prosperous lives. My third child, Evan, is 16. He is my baby. He loves to help out in the studio!
We have three beautiful grandbabies! Amanda who is 9, Ashley who is 6, and Amber who is 5. They keep us on our toes!
I have a small studio in my home where all the magic happens. Of course, sometimes, I must work, when nature allows, outside. Sanding and building require outside time. That is okay with me. I love the nature here in Georgia. It’s very common to hear birds singing, crickets chirping and frogs croaking.
Why do we repurpose and upcycle instead of buying new? Did you know that the Environmental Protection Agency reports that 9.8 million tons of old, out-dated furniture goes into our landfills every year! That’s a lot of wasted furniture folks. Of course, we can’t humanly save every little piece. But if we can save a tiny portion of that 9.8 million tons, then our work is certainly not in vain. This picture says it all!
Not only do we save and repurpose furniture, but we also love to visit thrift stores and save other items. Each item we find is upcycled or repurposed and made into a functional and unique, that you will never find in stores. You can see that be looking around the blog.
I hope the blog inspires you to repurpose and upcycle. It doesn’t have to be a full-time job; it can be a little hobby on the side. Imagine the stories you can tell about a unique piece of furniture or home décor you created with your own bare hands!
Lastly, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting our blog and our small business. We are very humbled by each one of you who reach out to us, who comment, and who visit our blog. We are truly blessed!
Daniel and Christina Woodcock
