More in our Nest

We just updated our space at Encore Resales with some new furniture and lots of chalkboards and frames!
We went garage selling last week and had a very successful day.  My daughter-in-law, Jocelyn, is expecting a baby girl in November, and we found a great 2nd hand crib and dresser/changing table. 

Tiffany went to a neighbor's yard sale up the street and told her about her adoption and how we are painting furniture.  God laid it on her heart to give us 2 dressers, a nightstand, a twin headboard and more!  God has been blessing us with people with giving hearts.  Take a look at our latest we just added Friday!

Tiff & Jocelyn started making these cuties on canvas!  We will be making more of these for sure.  One of these flew the coop while we were decorating!

We added lots of chalkboards in all shapes and sizes - just in time for school!  These are great in dorm rooms, sorority houses, kitchens and mud rooms!  Tiff even turned a twin headboard into a chalkboard and put in her dining room.  It's really cute!

We added lots more signs too!

This is a cute end table and very well made.

Tiff's friend gave her this shelf and we love this new color we are using!  Thanks so much Courtney!

This Queen Anne nightstand looks good in old white with dark wax.

Look how cute the frilly frame looks as a chalkboard.  We sell this for $5.00.  Cheap!!

Two new lamps and 2 "Old West" prints.  The prints were from Mombo - who is moving and gave us some of her treasures.

Did I tell you we had lots of chalkboards now?  It seems like whichever one we put adoption info on gets sold quickly!

Signs just for the picking!  These range in price from $10-$25.

We also have some really cool frames - all 2nd hand and some vintage.  We price to sell!

We have 2 of these shutters that we made into a chalkboard and also left the backside as a mirror so this can serve double-duty.  This goes great with our Houndstooth Desk!

Here's our crammed - "not so empty nest"! 

We are also doing custom pieces, so let us know if you'd like us to be on the look out for you.  All of our pieces are unique and one-of-a-kind.  When you go to Encore, make sure you tell them "The Not So Empty Nest" sent you!


  1. Is there a way to buy your products on line? I really love that small yellow shelf and "need" if for my bathroom.

  2. That is probably doable Debbi. It would be the cost plus shipping. We aren't set up for it but you could directly email us at and we could get the ball rolling.

  3. My sister-in-law and I stopped by on Saturday and picked up some cute frames! LOVE everything and am excited to stop by again -- soon! :)
