Idle Hands are a Children’s Workshop

Posted by on Mar 14, 2015 in Blog, Craft, Interior Design | No Comments

I’m not one to throw away my design convictions simply because I decided to bring adorable children into the world.

Those curious hands may test your patience, but they’ll also inspire you to be more practical with interior selections. A few weeks ago my highly active 2 yo decided to turn mommy’s handmade cabinet doors into abstract art. With a background in art & design, my knee jerk reaction is to handle any design challenge with a well crafted solution. My goal? To reinforce the textured surface so that Miss Parker’s little fingers would be, well, less curious.

Major Score

I found this beautiful cabinet on the side of a road in Hudson, NY (while passing through after a business meeting) for only $15! A possible antique from the 40’s or 50’s, I simply couldn’t resist the gorgeous carvings and archway.
