Upscale Resale... Habitat for Humanity!

You may recall that we made a commercial for the Habitat for Humanity Restore. (insert commercial where we look like the biggest losers)... Just kidding. Not showing it to you.... 

We are participating in the Designer Challenge. 
Things you must know:

1. We got EVERYTHING at the Wilmington Habitat Restore. You won't believe what we found.
2. We have tricked it out and our stuff looks like a million bucks.
3. Mark your calendars for April 25-26. 
4. Everything is FOR SALE and all proceeds go to Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity. 

Be sure to check out what we do with our 10X10 space. 
There are so many talented designers and we can't wait to see all of their finds and creativity at work. You will FLIP when you see what you can do with very little money. Habitat is wayyyy more upscale than you realized. 
See you there!

Mark Your Calendars! Designer Show House...

We want to begin this post by saying our deepest sympathies go out to the  Newsome Family here in Wilmington. On Friday, sixth grader Alex Newsome was hit in the head with a baseball during practice. Alex's injuries were severe and he passed away Friday night. This is one of those we can't understand tragedies and our community is still in shock from the news. Hug your loved ones and keep The Newsomes, Alex's coaches, teammates, classmates and friends in your prayers.

 The Arts Council of Wilmington invites you to visit our first Designer Show house, May 2-18, 2014.  Some of the area’s finest designers are dramatically transforming interior and exterior spaces of 1909 Gillette Drive, a stately Georgian-styled home overlooking the Cape Fear Country Club Golf Course. There will be a private Preview Party on Friday, May 2, 7 to 10 pm.  For tickets to the Designer Show house and/or the Preview Party as well as more information on the event, please visit
We are decorating the entry to Designer Show house! Included in
 our space is a custom Chinoiserie wallpaper that we designed (donated by Port City Signs and Graphics), a gorgeous Oriental rug from the Gallery of Oriental Rugs, a fretwork lacquered console, a coral Hollywood Regency chandelier and many other stunning pieces. Oh yeah, and in case you missed it and forgot to visit us while we were in the looney bin, a hand-painted leopard runner. Painted by, yours truly. Like us on Facebook for sneak peeks of our space. 

 Did we mention that many of the items in the show house will be FOR SALE? A portion of the proceeds go to the Arts Council of Wilmington. You don't want to miss it so MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

Just for you...

Because you asked...
The Coop will be open THIS SATURDAY (that's tomorrow)
from 12-3!!
So.... go to the Azalea Fest Parade, eat a funnel cake and think of moi, drop kids and hubbies off at home, and.... Come hang at The Coop! 

Besides, Saturday is as good a day as any to redo your dining room with this stunner chrome bamboo dining table and chairs...

 I spy with my little eye some new FAB pink chairs... and what are those in the background??? Yes, freshly lacquered matching shelves in white and coral... swoon!

Who needs a console? We have a few great ones... but we are loving this chinoiserie vibe console in cream... check out the detail...
 You might not be able to see it but yes, that is a vintage Lucite skyscraper table- who needs it? And check out the brass coffee table as well... LOVING THEM BOTH!
