What's in a Name

Rustic Whimsy! Why did I pick that name! I went back and forth between many different names and what it finally came down to was wanting a name that conveyed exactly what we are about, but was unique at the same time!

rus·tic (adj): plain and simple: lacking excessive refinement or elegance


whim·sy (adj): endearing quaintness or oddity: the quality of being slightly odd or playfully humorous, especially in an endearing way

These two words perfectly describe the furniture I paint! It is usually plain and simple, a little rough around the edges. And I like to use pieces with odd, curvy lines or paint with bright, unexpected colors!

So, there is your glimpse into the way my mind works and what kind of projects you can expect me to conquer!

I will have pictures soon of some new pieces available for purchase!

Thanks for stopping by!
