Meet Quinn

This was the first bed we did for The Modern Shed and it was a delight! In my opinion this bed would work in any decor due to its classic spindle detailing. We chose a true black to go with this classic piece.

Meet Mabel

Hello Friends! I know its been awhile since we have revealed a new piece, but Lindsay and I were in need of a Holiday Sabbatical! Now back in action, this is the first piece of 2011 for The Modern Shed and we are pleased to introduce....


Isn't she sweet! She has a very calming character to her. I could see her in any room of a house. The options are limitless. Personally I was envisioning her in a master bath filled with white towels and bath accessories or in a little girls room. Mabel is painted in a soft white with distressing in all the right places. Then we finished her in a ebony glaze to make her look like she has been around for awhile. The hardware is original to the piece. I love the brass against the white!
If you would like to take Mabel home, shoot us an email or you can find her on Craigslist in the Portland area.
Take Care,
Lindsay & Heather

The Katie Trunk and Merry Christmas

Hello Friends! Hope you are enjoying the Holidays! Just one more week and you will get to sleep! That is how we are feeling lately but we wanted to finish this trunk thinking it would be perfect to house all the new toys that will be opened this Christmas! It would also be great at the end of a bed or used as a coffee table. Finished in gunmetal grey and distressed to add character this piece is very unique. It has original vintage casters and brass trim on the corners. I love this piece, can you tell?!

We also want to say thank you for all the support and encouragement we received for the Modern Shed! We are excited to see what 2011 brings us.

P.S. Are those not the cutest wing back chairs you have ever seen! I found them for a steal at GoodWill!!!! I surprised Lindsay with them because if she was a chair she would look that that! Now they are sitting pretty in her beautiful home

She's a Beaut!

Does this dresser make you smile? It makes Lindsay and I smile! What a charming piece! This was an antique Drexel Heritage dresser that we painted a light cream and added some extra charm with some stain. The hardware is original with ornate detail. I didn't put anything on it for staging because I think it makes a statement by itself. It's like a naturally beautiful girl putting on need right! Happy Holidays!

Mirror Mirror...

Hello Everyone! Today we are finishing a beautiful antique dresser with loads of charm. I thought I would give you a few pic's of another project we just finished to hold you over until we have dresser pic's! This is a sweet mirror that makes a presence in any room. It is painted a soft gray with added distressing of course. The close up pictures show the ornate detail of the frame. Have a great weekend!

Meet Peter

He is a handsome little guy. When we saw the detail of this table, we had to snatch it up knowing the end result would be great! Finished in a soft blue with heavy distressing, with the original hardware and casters, this piece would add tons of charm to any decor!

Happy Holidays,
Heather & Lindsay

The Newest Addition!

I know I say this every time, but I really think this piece is my favorite! I think it is so so charming. The paint is a cool gray/white, which looks great with the newly upholstered brown velvet cushions! With just a bit of distressing in all the right places and the fantastic canning, this piece will add character in any house. Let us know if you just have to have it.
