Hi! Before my husband, Jarret, and I started Simply Southern Home Décor, I was an elementary teacher with a desire to be a stay-at-home mom. With A LOT of prayer and a few years of waiting, God opened the door for me to be able to do something I love and spend more time with our sweet girl. I love helping people turn their house into a home.
I came up with the idea for Simply Southern Home Decor after searching EVERYWHERE for a farmhouse table that was good quality and affordable for our young family’s budget. Finally, I had Jarret build us one and, in the process, I realized that there were a lot of people, like us, who wanted beautiful and durable furniture that fit into their budget. So, six days before the 2013-2014 school year started, we took a HUGE leap of faith and decided I would not go back to teaching. Instead, I would dedicate myself to raising our daughter and growing Simply Southern Home Décor. You know how sometimes you just know that this is the journey God has planned for you? That’s how it was when we started this business.
We spent the first 18 months working out of our house in Auburn, Alabama. Our life was crazy! I still have paint marks on our wood floors where we tracked it in from the garage. But I love those marks. They remind me how much we’ve grown and how blessed we have been with our business.
Over the 4.5 years we have been in business, we have grown tremendously. We have moved from our garage into a 1500 sq. ft. building we rented and then into a 4500 sq. ft. building that we own. We have shipped to over 30 different states and have built over 3,000 dining tables alone (we have built tons of other furniture as well). Along the way, we also welcomed a new baby girl into our family! So, now we have 2 sweet girls that you will often find playing in our showroom or going to meetings with me.
We give God all the glory for this business and although we are far from perfect, we hope that we are a reflection of Him and that we conduct our business in a way that glorifies Him.
We provide high quality furniture at an affordable price because a house just isn’t a home without a little bit of southern charm. So, when choosing where to purchase your family’s furniture, we hope that you will choose us, knowing that the furniture you buy will last a lifetime.
Thanks for visiting our site. I hope you find a beautiful piece and make memories around it for years to come!
