Shutters and Sand

Karee Foley describes what she and business partner Amy Jaros do as “creating art by painting and transforming furniture.” Together the duo is Shutters and Sand, a six-year-old business based in West Chester, PA.

Shutters and Sand sells hand painted vintage furniture, decorative home goods and other unique items, many of which would fit it perfectly at a beach house. Their creative process is simple – start with sturdy, antique pieces that may be a bit tired and transform them into new, stand-out pieces using fresh hardware, fun fabrics and chalk paint.

“We hand pick every piece for its age, originality and function…we don’t just buy anything,” says Karee. “We love what we do and to have someone buy our furniture and love it just as much as we do is icing on the cake.”
