Last Chance to Get Funky!

Last Chance to Get Funky!
Today is the deadline for potential Funky Fresh buyers to contact Kristina and make an offer! We've had a TON of inquiries and interest, but no one has shown up with the cold hard cash...so if you're seriously considering purchasing Funky Fresh and making it your dream career, it's time to act! If we do not receive a serious offer, we will begin liquidating our inventory and the business will close at the end of May. 

This is a unique opportunity to step into a fully functioning, PROFITABLE business and make it your own! If you have a passion for upcycling, home decor, and general awesomeness...this is the store for you. Please call Kristina at 607-216-8146 or email her at info@funkyfreshithaca.com TODAY!

Please refer back to Kristina's original post about the sale of the business for LOTS more details about the business!

Funky Fresh Friday

Funky Fresh Friday

Today's Funky Fresh Friday upcycle is a custom job for one of our wonderful customers! We upcycled this old dresser to go in her store, MojoWoman! MojoWoman is an Ithaca store specializing in natural fiber clothing for women, located on South Fulton Street. Check it out!


Here's the before...

In progress! Kristina mixed up a custom color for this one-of-a-kind piece.

The beautiful eggplant color is achieved by mixing CeCe Caldwell's New Orleans Purple and Vermont Slate.


The knobs were painted and texturized using CeCe Caldwell's Pittsburgh Gray and finished with CeCe Caldwell's amazing Metallic Wax, giving them their gorgeous shimmery sheen.

We think the finished product is absolutely STUNNING! Head over to MojoWoman and see it in person, and of course check out the beautiful natural fiber clothing. 

UP NEXT for MojoWoman:
We call this piece the "Narnia Closet." It's big, it's awesome, and it's getting upcycled! The folks at MojoWoman have commissioned Kristina to turn it into a beautiful clothing display fixture for their store. Hanging bars will be installed, and the inside will be painted with CeCe Caldwell's Vintage White. The outside will be a custom teal color, mixed from CeCe Caldwell's Destin Gulf Green and Maine Harbor Blue. We can't wait to share it with you once it's done!

Adding a seat base and some basic upholstery can transform an old trunk into some seriously classy seating!

Turn a dingy old trunk into a statement piece by upcycling it with CeCe Caldwell's paints! We're fully stocked with all colors right now. 

Some vintage trunks have damaged linings. Replace them with something awesome like newspaper, pages from your favorite book, or even fabric.

Use a larger trunk as a coffee table. You can store spare blankets (or anything else you need to keep out of the way) inside as a bonus!
