Just an hour’s drive west from St. Louis, Stacy Goeke-Steiner Ligon of Overdue Furnishings searches with her husband to find and restore unique vintage furniture pieces in Warrenton, Missouri. “We enjoy everything from the hunt to actually finding these lost treasures and forgotten pieces to cleaning them up, bringing out their natural beauty and refinishing them so they can tell their stories,” says Stacy. We love that we are keeping things out of land fills and bringing new life into our customers’ homes.

Stacy believes that some furniture pieces speak to her in a way she can’t ignore. “When we see something interesting we feel obligated to bring it home,” she says, adding that sometimes it’s tough to let her favorite pieces go. “We’d love to keep them all for ourselves. However, we realized that would be incredibly selfish. So we’ve decided to share them with the world by opening our shop.”

The shop can turn old farm doors into custom mirrors.

The husband-wife team can also refurbish pieces for their clients. The two are working on restoring a chic French Provincial nightstand that opens up to double the top surface area. “We hoped we would get someone with as much vision as us to do a custom job on the piece,” she says. “But I am so excited about this piece, I am not sure I’ll be able to hold off much longer!”

    I wish i had the same kind of vision that these people do. Such creativity and insight. I guess I’ll just have to stick with buying what they create :)

    Great to see others salvaging old items and making them something new! i always try really hard to save and re-use old decor in efforts to be more green. Such a great idea to reuse an old door and use it as a mirror! Very shabby chic!

    It’s a great thing to see! I want to try something similar with a door or even a pretty window frame.

  • I love that blue door with the mirror! It’s cool to see there are people out there salvaging old furniture and making it beautiful!
