About us

I have an old soul. I am a 24 year old with a love for everything old.  I love the stories each new treasure holds with it.  I love chippy paint and rust.  I love giving unusable things new life and rethinking their purpose.  I grew up visiting my grandma, Judy B, often and would sit for hours looking at pictures and envying the humble and simple ways she and my grandpa lived.

I also love creating.  I love the entire process of taking nothing and making something.  I am always looking for different styles of art to occupy myself.  If I don’t know how to do something, I learn.  From sewing, to painting, to drilling and hammering.  I love it all.  After moving into an apartment that needed a lot of work, but had a lot of potential, I discovered my love for decorating, and it turns out I was pretty good at it.  I took old things and gave them the chance to be a part of someone else’s stories: extended their lives, sometimes by making them beautiful again, and sometimes by turning them into a new creation. Rustic and shabby chic.  Country and modern.  It didn’t matter what style, what era, if i liked it, it got it, and would worry about its purpose later. One by one, things fell into place and I came out with a space that is “perfectly” me.

After encouragement from my friends and family, I decided the time was right for a shop, dedicated to everything and everyone I love.  I joined forces with my mom (who is equally, if not more, talented than I) and we ended up “rethinking” the entire shopping experience, and combining styles and tastes- new, old, and in-between- and coming up with our workshop- CornerSmiths.
