Although Rowdy is the creative mind and main builder of our creations- I, “Q” help with staining, painting, detail work and do any Social Media and will run the sales portion.
Our background that got us to this was the love of working with our hands and our creative minds.
We have remodeled 2 homes adding salvaged items and given them (re)purpose, while adding character to the houses.
Our 3rd home was a 100-year-old cabin, we took out walls, flooring, really gutted the place.
This was our biggest project that took a year. We used old beams, had built ins added, and was able to use part of old oak flooring we found under previous laminate.
It was a labor of love and frustration. But in the end we where proud of what we accomplished.
Now after selling the cabin in early 2019 and moving to a townhouse in Downtown Des Moines, to prepare for a move to Florida in January 2021- We found ourselves needing to “tinker” and keep our creative sides busy.
So Q’s was started.
Most of our items are made from Barn wood, Barn Beams and old cedar planks. We do mix old and new products together and make items from new material as well.
Since starting Q’s, we have added a Boutique on Anna Maria Island that carries island clothing, Ami beach gifts, jewelry, hats, sunglasses, and swimwear for the whole family, home accents and more!
