Talent Runs Deep….

P1010014a ….over at The Green Pea! If you follow my blog closely, you may recall that I have shared about my friend Sandi’s antique store several times on this blog. Sandi is quite talented in so many ways and her talents are visible as soon as you walk into her store. Not only is the building old and historic, but she has it decorated to the “T!”


Mr. Green Pea – the man behind the scene – is quite the carpenter and can build anything! All that Sandi has to do is show Mr. Pea a picture and he can build it, like this amazing shelf unit. Sandi had seen one similar to this one in a Restoration Hardware catalogue, showed her hubby the photo and he constructed this unit – and it is so much nicer than the RH’s piece! Solid wood shelving, antique cast iron fittings and wheels give this unit an industrial look. Sandi sanded the wood and applied several coats of paste wax to finish it off.


P1010015 It is a large piece that would be the perfect addition to a family room or even a kitchen. I can envision it in a loft setting, filled with books and collectibles.

Awesome job, Mr. and Mrs. Pea! Keep up the great work! You both are sooooo talented!!!


If you would like to see this piece in person, just click over to The Green Pea blog where Sandi has her shop’s information posted.

Mr. Green Pea sounds like a talented man for certain. I have a talented man who tells me that "That can't be done." Ha! He's not very good with the old and dinged look.
