Restoring Purpose with Paint and Brush
This is our Purpose here at Curbside Overhaul.
Every day hundreds of beautiful, pre-loved and still strong pieces are put out to the curb just because they are a little beat-up. These family treasures are replaced with cheap, poor quality items. Instead of seeing potential, people see marks and scrapes.
But with a touch of paint, we can breathe new life and restore purpose into a furniture piece that can be enjoyed for generations to come.
We are dedicated to restoring purpose in every aspect of our business, so 5 percent of all proceeds will go to non-profits and groups dedicated to helping our communities across Oklahoma.
Chelle Mount- Owner/Creator
Since her first job after college working in construction, Chelle has enjoyed building. Not only could she take wood and other materials to restore their natural beauty and purpose, she could take people's visions and dreams and make them a reality. In the past few years, Chelle noticed the trend of people throwing away beautiful and purposeful furniture, which were to be replaced with cheap, poorly built items. She knew there had to be away to take these worn, but sturdy pieces to make them beautiful and wanted again. So that is how it began. As so many people rescue pets and bring them home, she began to rescue furniture. She would grab it before the garbage truck could crush it, take it home to clean it up, find its beauty and give it a beautiful new finish and a new life. After being passionate about the art of restoring, she has finally decided to take the leap and pursue it full-time.
Kayla Kamp: Content Developer
After moving to a Oklahoma college town, Kayla saw more waste than was necessary. After researching for a solution, she stumbled onto a much fun and creative way of dealing with waste than recycling alone. Upcycling, or reuse (discarded objects or material) in such a way as to create a product of a higher quality or value than the original. She found ways to repurpose everything from plastic bottles and spoons to paper. She's taking the skills she learned in her multimedia journalism degree to join her aunt on teaching others the joys of taking something deemed useless and restoring it's purpose. Stay tuned for her blog posts, pictures and videos.
