Can you imagine what it would be like to actually make furniture for your kids? I mean, once you knew what kinds of toys they were in too and what their personalities were like, think how nice it would be to buy some wood and nails and start building. I would love to be able to do this. Unfortunately, I have minimal amounts of creative bones in my body so I have to shop for the right kind of furniture for my kids’ stuff. Usually, to find anything affordable means it is low quality and hardly fashionable. Mod Mom Furniture is one mom’s unique flare for building children’s furniture in the comfort of her own garage.
Kiersten Hathcock, grew up in Ohio and developed a love for woodworking after her dad introduced her to table saws and jig saws when she was a teenager. As Kiersten grew up she set aside her love for woodworking to become a marketing exec and eventually start a family. As the need grew for her kids to have places to store their toys and the refusal to pay retail on children’s furniture, Kiersten was able to rekindle her love of woodworking and build some modern toy boxes for her kids’ stuff. Her friends and family were thrilled with her work and started ordering more storage units for their kids’ stuff.
Now, Kiersten builds all kinds of Modern Kids Toy Boxes in her garage workshop and some of the things she has come up with…..well, let’s just say… you aren’t going to find this kind of function and quality anywhere else! Her pieces are totally affordable, functional and most of all modern at the same time. I just wish I knew how to do this kind of thing but Kiersten assures me that "if you think you can do it, you can!" Maybe I’ll give it a try.
