How do you paint your furniture? What paints do you use?
Each piece is cleaned, sanded and base coated with tinted primers, latex or milk paint. Layers of paint and tinted glazes achieve the look I want. I paint by hand, no spraying. All my furniture is finished with either a flat or satin acrylic sealant. This gives the piece durability and easy maintenance. Just a damp cloth to clean and no waxing!
Where do you find your vintage items?
I travel all over Texas and the Mid West to find unique items. Estate sales, flea markets, garage sales, antique shops, auctions, and donations from friends are where I find these treasures!
Hope you will enjoy them as much as I do!
I am thinking of purchasing an item, but would like more photos/information about it. Is this possible?
Yes! Feel free to email me with any questions, or to request more photos!
Are my payments secure? How do I pay?
You can pay with PayPal, Amazon Payments, Apple Pay or credit card. My store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide me with the online e-commerce platform that allows me to sell my products and services to you.
What is this store's return policy?
I will accept returns* if you notify me within 3 days of receiving item. Please ship item in original package within 7 days of delivery. Buyers are responsible for all shipping costs. Shipping fees are not refunded. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
*PLEASE NOTE: Items purchased through a Sale are final sales. No returns since these items are on sale.
Vintage and handmade items are unique. There might be small flaws or signs of age. I take great care and pride in my shop and want you to be satisfied with your purchase. Feel free to contact me with any questions before purchase!
What is the policy for items damaged during shipping?
In the case of a shipment arriving damaged, please contact me immediately for instructions. For me to file a claim, I will need photos of the damage which can be emailed to me within 3 days of receiving item. Please retain the contents you received and all the associated packing materials until your claim is settled. You may be asked to take them to your local Post Office for inspection later. Please do not reship the package unless instructed by me.
Once I have been reimbursed by USPS, Fedex or whatever shipper used, I will issue a refund for the purchase price of the damaged item. According to the USPS website, domestic claims are usually paid within 30 days.
Do you accept orders placed outside of the US?
No, at this time I am not shipping worldwide. Please contact me for shipping cost if you are interested in purchasing.
How long until I receive my order?
I will ship 3-5 business days from order completion.
I prefer USPS Priority. But depending on the item, I will also go with Fedex or UPS. If there are any additional costs they will be added to the listing. Please let me know if you prefer an option before purchasing.
All packages are insured and will have a tracking number sent to the buyer, via email shipping notification.
How do you ship furniture? How long does it take for delivery?
For delivery of furniture, I prefer using the white glove/blanket wrapped delivery, Plycon. On smaller pieces I will use FedEx Ground. Delivery times vary based on their delivery schedule. Fedex Ground usually takes 3-5 business days. If shipping with Plycon, please allow 3-7 weeks for delivery.
Please understand that once a shipment is picked up and paid for via Plycon or Fedex you are now responsible for communicating with them. They are a third party shipping company and completely separate from Boulder Blue Studio.
Local curbside delivery of furniture available in Greater Houston area for $25 or $50.
LOCAL PICKUP for furniture only, is available at my studio located in The Woodlands, TX, 30 miles north of Houston.
