Have purchased three itemsfrom Alley Cat,

rustic coffee table, a custom end table to match coffee table and a custom version of the

large rustic coffee table tray

(custom stain color and hardware).

All three are excellent examples of what rustic reclaimed wood products should be,

100% reclaimed wood,

sanded and finished in a manner such that it looks new and rustic at the same time and is quite functional. Doesn't just look like a bunch of old boards nailed together nor does it look like it was mass produced in China.

Real quality work

by people (Catherine and Alan) who really care about the result and provide excellent communication to ensure the work is done right the first time and in a timely manner.

I can't wait to order another piece from Alley Cat Design!
I highly recommend them...
beautiful artwork
and customer service!
Oh and the shipping was incredible!

I have bought several pieces of custom-made wood art...

I cannot say enough great things

about this design team!

This beautiful piece of art is just what I wanted

and could not find in any store...

it is the perfect mixture of rustic history...

from the reclaimed wood

and contemporary art flair.

It was well packaged and ready to hang! Gorgeous! I love it!

Catherine went above and beyond to match my existing shelves. She sent me pictures along the way to make sure I was happy with the outcome. She came darn close. I planned on hanging this box on the wall for fruit but ended up putting it on the counter instead. I love it and the shop/Catherine was a pleasure to deal with.

They custom made a GA planter for me and it looks amazing. I can't wait to plant succulents in it! Thanks for the quick responses and wonderful experience!

I just got my item and it FAR exceeds

what I was hoping for - and I knew it'd be amazing based on the pictures

I've been getting along the way!

I can't describe how beautiful my piece is -

one of a kind and something I will

treasure for years to come!

I asked them to make something they'd never made before and you would never know it -

looks like perfection!

I sent a few pictures of what I was hoping for along with pictures of the room it'd be hung in.

Catherine is so kind and

a great communicator too.

I had updates every weekend and

pictures to show the progress.

Some people just have a life calling -

Catherine and Alan's is so evident.

Amazing people, amazing product!!!

The art is lovely.I am an interior designerand reached out to Catherine and Alan to commission 16 pieces for a client.It was an absolute pleasure to work with them.          Super easy, very communicative. From the beginning they seemed to understand my needs for my client, offered suggestions and kept things moving forward.                              Very organized and thorough.          The art is being used in a public hospitality capacity and the   Owner is delighted with the end product.                                                        Catherine and Alan committed to a deadline and price and things never wavered. Looking forward to working with them again.                                 If you are thinking about a custom piece, rest assured they will deliver!

my reclaimed wood tray.

It iswell constructed

and beautiful!

Exactly what I was looking for.

Received the item quickly and LOVE that the

sellers messaged me pictures of

"my tray" before it was shipped.

When you buy a "custom" item

it's great to see exactly

what you are getting

before it

arrives. 😊
