From a dining table...to a hall table: every piece of furniture you purchase from us is handmade with real wood in our nearby Amish Country. It will be a part of your family for many years!
Our Craftsmen take pride in what they create with their hands. They start with real wood grown in the forces of nature that shaped it. The grain lines, knot marks, etc. are unique to each plank of wood. With the skill that comes from working with their hands for years, they crafted your piece of furniture.

After careful wood preparation, our Craftsmen, hand apply the finest stain or paint. Gentle buffing, with attention to detail, results in aged character. Finally, it is all sealed to protect your beautiful piece of furniture from the spills and scratches of everday living.
How do you care for this carefully crafted piece of furniture? How do you keep it beautiful for years to come? It's really as simple and natural as the wood from the tree in the forest where it all began. You want to use water. Dampen a soft rag with water and wipe it clean. Keep food particles, dust, etc, wiped clean frequently. Occasionally, (maybe once or twice a year) you may want to go beyond water and nurture the finish with a light coat of furniture wax or oil. Choose a high grade natural product with beeswax for the best results. Lightly apply, then buff it to a smooth finish. This will nourish the sealer the craftsmen finished your furniture with.
You will want to protect your furniture from both moisture and dryness. Your home atmosphere is essential to the wellbeing of your real wood furniture. Ideal humidity is no less than 30% and no more than 60% humidity. Too little moisture could cause the wood to crack or even split. (And be aware of heat vents under or right beside your furniture, as they are very likely to cause too much dry air.) Too much moisture will cause the wood to swell and drawers or doors could catch on the openings instead of working smoothly.
You have a one-of-a-kind, quality piece of furniture. Enjoy it well! Family will gather around in the every day moments. Laughter of friends will flow. United, around the uniqueness of you and the home you have styled...today...and for generations to come.
Our Milkhouse Candles are produced in America's Midwest where fields of soybeans provide the natural soy wax base of these candles. Blended with the soy wax, is beeswax, a healthy and safe alternative to paraffin candles. The pure white wax blend has no artificial dyes, and our wicks are lead-free. Our candles burn clean the whole way to the bottom. Please, trim the wick to 1/4" each time you light them, for a safe flame.
Each fragrance is authentic to its name and a delight to burn! Our customers come back for these candles, again and again! You will want to try them all.
The milk bottle candle is so fun. Its shape and size complement a farmhouse kitchen. Here is an idea...choose 3 fragrances and line them up on a tray or slab of barn wood. It would be lovely as a centerpiece or on a windowsill. Choose 3 complimentary fragrances...as they burn and mix you will have created your own original scent!
