A Future in Furniture?

Chad Paine currently works eight hours a day at a local metal recycling company to support Erin and their four-month-old son, Carson. On the side, Chad enjoys building and refinishing furniture, and he hopes to turn his hobby into a full-time job someday.

If the Lord leads Chad and Erin to open a furniture shop, what do you think they should name it?

  18. "Paine's Perspective" - keeps with his blog's theme and when redoing something, there are lots of possibilities - but it's the crafter's perspective that brings the final result.

  22. Paine's Furniture Flip or Flip This Furniture. It would be good if they used recycled materials and environmentally safe paints. Have Eco-Friendly options. It's good to think green!

  23. Carving for Christ. LOL ;)

  24. I'd call it Chad's Perspective, just like his blog. Every artist has his or her own perspective on style, and Chad's is conveyed through his work. Each piece is made or altered after thoughtfully considering the wood, the materials and the overall aesthetic. So, Chad's perspective innately part of every piece he crafts or refurbishes. Ergo, call the store Chad's Perspective.

  32. I would like to know what name would Chad and Erin pick ? I bet Erin has come up with several good names already and I am sure Chad s Mom too has some great ideas as well. Would just love to see their dream come true ! Erin and Chad would work well together. They would have many customers, that's for sure! Make sure you send out catalogs too Chad! Would love to order from You and Erin!

  36. "Fledglings" is when baby birds get too big to be sat on, so they fly away. Maybe with that nest of baby birds leaving the nest, and furniture being taken care of then leaving the the house, or nest, that could be a good word t use or at least an idea for something in the title of Chad and Erins new business. Just a thought. The furniture is beautiful and its when you take something old and make it beautiful and then let it go. I would love to see a page of items he redoes its so inspiring to me and the chance to buy something he makes would be even better, as long as there were wide price ranges, small things, and large! Just amazing! :)
