Welcome to rustic + refined + rePete! We’re glad to have you. So why “rustic + refined + rePete”? Welllll here’s a picture of our cute little family.
(All together now “awwwwwww”.) I know, I know. 🙂
So anyways, I’m Cass – 20something, and this is Brandon (Pete) – forever29, and Garrett (rePete) – 8goingon18. <<< See what we did there? 😉
rustic: Pete is my handsome handyman, and soul mate. He’s not afraid to get his hands dirty or take on a task too big. He brings my lofty dreams to fruition. He’s the piece of the pie dreaming up new ways to use (or should I say ‘reuse’?) as many old pieces as possible. Part of his grandfather’s Ponderosa barn now comprises our kitchen, but more on that later.
refined: That’s me! I’m the crown molding to his barn siding, the chandelier to his reclaimed beam, the Calcutta marble to his butcher block. You picking up what I’m throwing down here? Separate we are uptight or old, but together we sing in sweet harmony.
rePete: Garrett. He’s our pride & joy, and the reason we work as hard as we do. He reminds us to slow down and enjoy the little things in life (& by that I mean “act like 8 yr olds again”). He’s our demo man – always ready to help tear something apart. I picked up Pete & rePete on a 2 for 1 special, and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.
The three of us bought our dream home back in July. A cute little ranch style situated on the bluff along Mississippi River bottoms. We’re perched aside the miles and miles of farmland that border the Mississippi River, and supplies some of the prettiest sunsets in the Midwest. We’re eight weeks into our reno, and cannot wait to share our story with you. Hang tight – more on our journey to come.
