Mirrors, mirrors on the wall

Posted February 25, 2012

We are starting a new “thing” here at Hazel Tree. In our constant effort to utilize all of our resources to their fullest extent, we have started making mirrors out of picture frame remnants. Often times these remnants that are left over from custom jobs sit in the cutting room until they get used in another custom frame (which rarely happens) or they get damaged and have to be discarded (a much more likely scenario). We have come up with a third option. We are turning them into mirrors. Some are small that can be used as accent pieces and some are a bit larger that could be used in bathrooms, bedrooms or hallways. We price these to sell. They will most likely range from $15 for the small ones and $75 for the larger mirrors. It’s also worth mentioning that we can make custom mirrors as well. If you have a specific size or style requirement, we can select the perfect frame and cut it to exactly fit your space. And the price won’t break the bank either. When you get a mirror at a big chain retailer you are probably going to have to make some style compromises. Getting exactly what you want is always a better value. If a mirror is something that you’re looking for, please stop in and check out all the options. I am always happy to price out as many different options as you like.

New line of reclaimed metal furniture in-store now

Posted February 17, 2012

This coffee table / Flat-screen TV console is made with metals of charcoals and black, but there are also colored metal pieces available sometimes. Just ask!


We have a handful of pieces on the showroom floor from a new-to-us local furniture maker. Come see!

The furniture is constructed from scrap metals from redesigned items like scaffolding, shipping container roofs and industrial shelving.

Here are photos of what we have in-store now - but more pieces are made and available, just ask. Custom orders are welcomed (and oh, so much fun to think about the possibilities!)

Hope to see you soon!

This pair of end tables with shelves are really fun...made of off-white and neutral metals that used to be industrial shelving units.

This bench / coffee table is just so sharp lookin'....I love it!

Perfect table for a seating area with a sofa placed opposite from a pair of chairs...if the space is limited, you can place this in a non-traditional way, perpendicular to the sofa and running it between the two chairs. Placed long ways like that, it effectively serves as the table top surface for all five people seated there!

This desk is ergonomically-correct. And don't worry about banging it up - it just looks better that way! The top is made from the roof of a shipping container and the curved edges are sections of scaffolding. Sweet!

A chair that matches is on its way from the artisan soon. (But if you'd like this one, we'll throw it in for free just because we love you.)
