FAQ – Answers to Questions We Get Asked ALL the Time!

Sources/Where We Got It 

Where did you get your dining room table?
We’ve had a few dining room tables. The two that we get the most questions about are the light colored trestle table and the darker farmhouse table. The light wood trestle table was the Restoration Hardware Salvaged Natural Table. We clear-coated it with a matte varnish to protect it. It was a GORGEOUS table, but ultimately didn’t hold up to a lot of wear and tear…and it was brutal on the knees if you were sitting at either end! The dark farmhouse table is the Calistoga table from The Brick. It is very solid, and takes a beating well. Plus the extensions are a LOT easier to take on and off than the RH ones were. 

Where is your sectional couch from?
Our sectional couch is the Ikea Ektorp, currently with the Nordvalla Beige slipcovers. We wrote a review of our couches here

Where did you get your wicker dining chairs?
​These are the IKEA Byholma chairs. I highly recommend the Marieberg cushions to go with to make them more comfortable. Plus a throw pillow. 🙂

Where did you get the metal dining chairs?
The metal industrial armchairs are made by Mercury Row and can be found on the Wayfair site here (affiliate link).

Where did you get your open shelving brackets?
For our two most recent kitchen renovations, we installed open shelving. And for both installations, I designed and Dean created the shelving brackets. We are looking into the process of manufacturing them and selling them, but as you can imagine, they’re quite heavy to ship! We’ll keep you posted…and if you’re interested in them, please contact us and let us know. 

Where did you get your dining room light fixture?
The dining room light fixture is from Wayfair and is currently called the Odie 8-light kitchen island pendant. Wayfair occasionally changes the names of products though. You can find it here (affiliate link).

Where did you get your black kitchen track lights?
The black kitchen track lights in our farmhouse style kitchen were source from They are made by Seagull Lighting and have unfortunately been discontinued. We have not been able to find similar versions elsewhere. 

Where did you get your huge black clock?
The Fulton Street black oversized clock is from Wayfair. (affiliate link)

I absolutely love your china cabinet, it’s so classic! Do you have a source for it?
Yes, our one wood-look ‘china cabinet’ is from Wayfair (affiliate link). If it’s in stock when you look, buy it! It’s frequently out of stock! Our two matching buffet and hutches, that look sort of gray are the Keswick hutches from The Brick. 

Where did you get the flat bar for your DIY barn doors?
My husband sourced our via his work. But you can find similar flat bar at Metal Supermarket and sometimes at Lowe’s or Home Depot.

Where did you get your new living room chairs?
You can find them here

Other House Questions 

How on earth do you keep your open shelves clean?
I’m going to assume you’re referring to our kitchen open shelves. If that’s the case, we put our everyday dishes up there on display. Which means they get daily use. Anything that doesn’t get used gets dusted weekly (along with the shelves) with a Swiffer Duster. If something like the cake stand or something is not used for awhile, we will of course wash it before use! 

What paint color is that?
We get asked this one all the time! If you visit the links below, you can find all the colors we used for each house, except the first, which wasn’t very pretty! 🙂
