I love getting photos from customers! These reclaimed shelves look awesome in this gorgeous kitchen 😍
This might not seem like a big step to a lot of people but I’ve literally been staring at a hole in the wall for 6 months. Construction usually takes longer than expected.. sometimes you need something huge to push you through to the finish line. 2019 is our year 🙌🏼
We’re getting stuff done during nap time today. Rebuilding the bathroom built in that was removed sometime in the 60’s or 70’s. So thankful we found the original drawers and doors in the basement 🙌🏼 #theparkwoodblvdhouse
Spring is coming soon.. I hope 🤞🏼 We have everything you need for a beautiful Spring table 🛒 @clintonstmercantile
I love mixing and matching vintage glassware. It adds so much interest to a dinner table and it’s easier to find your glass again when you put it down at a get together! Pick up a few, now at The Merc! @clintonstmercantile
My mercury glass trees are always my last piece of the holidays to put away. In my opinion they’re really winter decor ❄️ It helps me feel better when I have them up until March! The littlest tree is from an amazing shop in Schenectady @bluebirdhomedecor and it is actually a candle! 🛒 Walnut candle stick @clintonstmercantile
We’re only a month into 2019 and we already have bigger decisions (both as a business and as a family) than all of 2017 and 2018 combined! Huge things are happening for us right now and we’re as excited as an 8 year old on Christmas Eve for it to all play out! Keep an eye out in the next few weeks for our biggest announcement yet 🤗 👆🏼p.s. How cool is this pedestal that @anythangbutbland turned out of plywood scraps!
They’re here! Come visit me at The a Merc today while you’re exploring Schenectady for the #soupstroll
We got almost a foot of snow last night ❄️ Nora loves that’s she’s the perfect height to watch the snow fall out our dining room windows. How are you enjoying your Sunday
🛒 Our AbbKids leather knot bow is available at @clintonstmercantile
Our new sign is up and looking great! Stop over tomorrow from 6:30-8:30
🛍 Meet all of the makers and get 10% off any shopping!
Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean winter is 🥶 It’s freezing here in Schenectady today. I figured I’d try out a few winter place settings for The Mercantile. Which is your favorite I think the last one is mine ❄️ .
Would you look at this gorgeous table top for @manginosgourmet 😍
New packaging is all set! And we love it!
We’ve got new stock down at The Merc! Stop by 🛒 148 Clinton St, Schenectady 12305
Turning our first ever pedestal leg! After lots of practice and learning from other makers, I’m really enjoying lathe work.
2018 has been a huge year for us 🙌🏼 We can’t wait to see what God has in store for us in 2019! We’re so excited for all of the great things happening in Schenectady and so thankful for all the amazing people we met this year!
We’re working on new products for The Merc! Let us know what you’d like to see!
We added a very functional walnut shelf to our guest bathroom. ➡️swipe to see why we needed this gorgeous shelf so badly 😂
Come down to The Merc and grab some last minute gifts 🎁

Finishing touches before going across the country to an amazing customer ✈️
Just in time for Christmas! 🎄Pick up a cedar or white oak cookbook/ tablet stand at The Merc! @clintonstmercantile
We were just in The Merc dropping off some gorgeous maple and walnut cutting boards! Stop by @clintonstmercantile to check them out
Pick up some gifts for the Holidays! We’re filling up our spot at @clintonstmercantile this week with great small gifts like these walnut tablet stands 🎁
Wood you look at that grain 😉
We’re laminating some maple and walnut over here! What’s your weekend project
Thanks @urban_industrial_design for this gorgeous walnut.
Here’s my tip on how to finally get your project done... host a party😂 Hosting 16 people for Thanksgiving got my booty into gear! I absolutely LOVE how the dining room came out though

Thanksgiving number 2 is in the books! We had a great dinner, even with a very sleepy, sniffling 3 year old. 🎨 @benjaminmoore - Storm
When your Thanksgiving table matches your travel mug 👌🏼 Wishing everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving
Finishing up some tables for @manginosgourmet on Eastern Ave in Schenectady. Great Italian food in a gorgeous restored building! Check this place out! 🍝
This morning didn’t start off too great.. we were running late, it snowed ❄️ and one of my favorite coffee cups had a crack in it (after I had already poured my coffee!) ☕️ Nora and I decided to stop by @raw_essentials_jayst this morning after bringing Ella to Preschool for a little retail therapy 🛍 Look that this amazing mug I got to replace the one that broke!
Playing around with some bits tonight. It’s so satisfying to watch the Xcarve do its work!
This week the girls and I had the privilege to do a shoot in the GE Realty Plot with the extremely talented @danielleschmidty 🍂
We’re currently painting pumpkins for our Thanksgiving table while listening to Christmas music 🎶 I’d say we’re a bit mixed up... 🤷🏼♀️
I am loving this bookshelf toy box combo! Put in a custom order at ABBLANDDESIGNS.com ☝🏼link in bio!
Tom built a circle jig on the Xcarve! It saved $40 and made it much easier to cut out the table tops for @manginosgourmet
We’ve got some spalted wood coasters running on the Xcarve!
We’re on a mini vacay in Boston this weekend! Sooo, we figured we’d play around with our Xcarve and some epoxy and make a set of coasters.
We love that our Xcarve is giving us the ability to add personal touches to our larger pieces! We’re just about done with this barnwood bed for @farmhousefloraldesign and are 🤤 over this headboard!
It’s finally Fall Y’all! 🍁 look how gorgeous these multicolor mums are 😍
Our Nora Dining table is the perfect combination of rustic and modern. The raw wood look and clean lines fit into any space. This is the perfect table to bring a big family together for the Holidays. At 8 feet long it comfortably seats 10 people.
I could barely get a picture of Nora sitting in this adorable little Montessori chair/ table! She loves it so much, I think we’re going to be building her one for Christmas 🎄
We love getting photos of our work from our customers! I’m pretty sure that view could make anything look good though 😍 Thank you to everyone who has bought from us in the last few years. Without all of your trust and dedication to us we wouldn’t be where we are today! 🛒 Shop these chairs from the link in our bio 👆🏼

My favorite part of a build is the joy it brings to the client’s face when they see the final product! Check out this adorable doll house bookshelf! Plans courtesy of @anawhitediy
