12 May Pickin’, Junkin’ and Up-cyclin’ in the Bay Area with Karen from Redoux Interiors
Last week I finally had the privilege of meeting Karen Berg of Redoux Interiors. Even though we had never met in person prior to this, it felt like we had known each other forever.
As soon as my flight landed in California, we were off and running… Karen is VERY serious and VERY boring in real life… NOT!!
She’s as sweet, energetic and crazy silly as she comes across online and we couldn’t stop talking or laughing all week long!
She took me to some of her favorite places to shop. Did you know she’s the queen of dumpster diving? She’s even written a Dumpster Diving Series.
I couldn’t wait to join in on the fun
I felt right at home with Karen. She’s got furniture piled up everywhere just like I do. We couldn’t resist using some of Karen’s treasures to do a five minute junky garden up-cycle that even Donna from Funky Junk Interiors would appreciate.
I can’t wait to see what this headboard looks like once the bed is overflowing with zucchini blooms.
Seriously… how could be leave this one behind? It was just begging to be part of the fun! A little twine and the peppers will be good to go.
I’m sure Karen will share how everything looks when it’s time to harvest her goods but right now she’s probably knocking down the gates at her favorite local cherry orchard making sure she’s picked the very first ones off the trees.
If she is, you’ll bet she’ll be wearing this. Did you know, she wears aprons LIKE ALL THE TIME? Seriously… I just about died laughing when I turned my head in the car and saw this!
You just never know when you might spill something ~ lol! Never mind the grunge under our fingernails from pickin!
Just to humor Karen, I threw one on for the fundraising paint workshop at the Paris Flea Market ~ I’ll be sharing more on that soon.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend ~ and Happy Mother’s Day!
Tomorrow I’m back to painting furniture. I’m going to try something like this display piece painted by my good friend Laurie!
a hui hou, Shelly
