Project Description

Awake My Soul

That dresser that belonged to your great-grandmother? It weathered through the Great Depression.
That trunk you spotted at the flea market? It traveled across the country in 1952 carrying a young girl’s whole life.
Everything has a past. And a beautiful future.

Chris Barentz takes pieces with a story and creates their beautiful future. While she became an accomplished faux finisher and co-founded Art of Dixie, Chris never lost her love of finding old pieces and giving them new life. Awakening their soul. Writing their beautiful future.
