Thanks for stopping by our little corner of the internet, grab a seat on our porch and a delicious drink - we'd love to share our story with you!
We're Anne & Art, the father-daughter team behind Cedar Porch Designs. You may be wondering how we came up with the name Cedar Porch, well, it came from the time that my dad helped us build an amazing porch off the back of my house. The porch has fantastic cedar shakes, a bead board ceiling and a cozy handmade porch swing. When I finally realized how happy creating and refurbishing furniture and home decor made me, I knew we just had to name the business after one of our favorite projects together.
Over the years I, Anne, have had a variety of jobs, but it has always been the ones I tackled at home that made me the happiest. My family even came to expect frequent decor and furniture changes in their home over the years. Typically they'd say, "wow mom, are you painting again?" and "...you want to build what?"
How We Started Cedar Porch
While I had the big ideas, it was my dad, Art, who had the tools and talent to make my ideas come to life. When I'd come to him with my ideas he would always respond with, "Yeah! We can do that!" After years of creating and refinishing projects, I finally decided to take the leap and start Cedar Porch Designs!
My dad loves being involved with Cedar Porch. He worked in construction for years and as a result is a master craftsman when it comes to woodworking. We are such a great team because while I have the vision, he has the knowledge and experience to continue expanding our business.
A lot of the wood we use for our decor has a long history, and we love to share the stories. Most recently, a sweet woman had a cute little shed, but no longer wanted it on her property, so she gave us the wood from the shed! It was lots of hard work to take apart, but all of this amazing old wood is being used to make unique items for your home!
We love to create one-of-a-kind furniture and home decor, just like the porch swing my dad made our family, so don't hesitate to ask us about custom furniture orders!
