Formerly an antique dealer, Ashley was well acquainted with the pastime of hunting eclectic goods. In fact, it was on one such good-hunting adventure overseas that she stumbled across her first treasure trove of antique wood. It had been discarded, piled up and covered in dirt and grime. Of course, that didn't stop Ashley from bringing it on back home. She makes frames and chalkboards from scraps and planks of reclaimed wood as well as from antique wood cabinets that are well over 150 years old. She manages to take dingy old wood and transform it into something gloriously new and timeless.
