Summer Nights

Urban Farmhouse Finishes

153 E Main Pinckney MI  48169

We have a surprise!


We have a really cool patio!

OK, it might not be a surprise to everyone, it’s a hidden gem in the back of our store and it’s the perfect place to spend a Friday evening creating Pinterest inspired projects!

We love doing our workshops and envision this as the summer “unplugged” version – complete with twinkle lights, canvas sails and a garden atmosphere. If the weather cooperates we plan to start in June so STAY TUNED for additional information.
