This Weekend at Chartreuse

I love taking something
old and repurposing it
into something new so I'm 
always looking for pieces
I can transform.
When I was at the auction a
few months ago I picked
up some antique church pew
ends for a song because I thought
they'd make a really
cool base for 
a kitchen island.
I collaborated with my friend,
Drew on a design that would be 
beautiful and functional, with a 
substantial easy-maintenance galvanized
top and an additional shelf below for
extra storage.
I love the way it turned out!
What do you think?


It's for sale this
weekend in my shop,
The Kramer Angle,
in Buckeystown, Maryland.

Another piece I transformed
was an incredible screen
door that was taken off a 
Long Island estate that was
slated for demolition.   
Check out the before and after:


At just under 8' tall
it would make an incredible
statement piece in a 
foyer or living room.
I also love turning
old bottles, buckets, cans, etc.
into unique lamps
and have several available
at this weekend's sale like
this old water bottle & crate.
