About Rustic Tuesday
Hi there! I’m Melody... wife, mom and lover of all things farmhouse, rusty and chippy... and really, the chippier the better!
Decorating has always been my thing. I remember the first time I rearranged our living room… I was in grade school! (Luckily, my mother loved it!) Years later, when I got my own place, I scoured yard sales and thrift stores for mason jars, spools, primitive wood decor and pretty much anything vintage. I became a huge curator of cast-offs and hand-me-downs. If it was being tossed out, chances are I'd take it!
As the years passed, I still liked my old stuff but I gravitated toward a lighter palette, whites and off whites mostly, and my style is now kind of a "French Country meets Modern Farmhouse." I still have those blue mason jars, spools and some primitive wood pieces, but I now like to throw in a little of the unexpected, too, like a mid century chair here or there and always, always something with leopard print. In fact, I think leopard print might be my second favorite color after white!
Several years ago I took a furniture painting class. I was hooked! After I had painted pretty much every piece of furniture I owned I started looking for more things to paint. Then I had so many pieces that I needed a place to sell them, so I rented some space at a local vintage mall. This is where Rustic Tuesday began.
Now that we’ve expanded our store online, I get to share the things I love most... farmhouse, vintage and chippy... through the curated collections in our shop. I hope you will love them as much as I do and be inspired to create the home you love.
