Mercantile- Lakeside line of merchandise

Tee Lake Themed Oar Art

New to the Mercantile is our Lakeside line of merchandise that I'm creating. This line is inspired by lake living. It offers new artwork with a vintage/rustic feel, and it's all hand painted by myself. There are buoys, oar art, and an assortment of signs. The "38" that is featured on some of the items is the year that the Resort was established. 

Tee Lake Themed Buoys

All pieces are custom, so if you want specific colors, dates or sayings please contact me. One option on how to customize these would be to put your kids  initials and their birth dates on the buoys. 

These items will be featured in the cabins as well as the Mercantile.

Deer Trail Cabin Rehab Continues

Deer Trail Cabin Rehab
Work continues on Deer Trail Cabin. I've replaced the old lighting with a new ceiling fan and set of lights over the counter area. Drywall has also been installed in the peak area where there was only studs. I've painted it and trimmed it out. It looks so much better now that the ceiling and beams are exposed. I'll be posting one more time after I have the cabin staged again, otherwise you will have to make a reservation for Deer Trail to see it in person. Thanks for following the progress on the cabin.

New to the Mercantile

New to the Mercantile is a set of magnets of the four cabin icons. These are hand crafted by myself. The artwork was created by the Andy Bauer Studio. This was a fun craft project for me to do, and I love how the packaging came out. Each magnet is 1 inch in diameter, and have a very strong magnet on the back. It is $5 for the set.

Deer Trail Cabin Rehab Part-1

Deer Trail Cabin rehab photos
It's day 4 of my interior rehab project in Deer Trail and here's a little update. I removed the drop down ceiling to give it that open feel that the other cabins already have. To my surprise I found some old messages from past guests that had stayed here in the 1960's. Click on the image to view more photos. It's so fun finding things like this. I love to learn about the history of the Resort, and I couldn't think of a more fun way to gain some information. Tomorrow will be a day of varnishing the wood ceiling, and then it's on to the new lighting. I'll continue to post updates as I get things done.
