Not Just A Shoppe

We’ve had a ton of people asking about the sign that says if you buy furniture from the Brown Elephant, we’ll paint it!

It’s as easy as that- if you have a piece of furniture or home decor piece that you’d like painted, or you find something that speaks to you at a consignment shop, we’ll paint it for you! All we need is a picture of the item and a description in your words of what you’d like done to it. We’ll send a price estimate and a timeline when the piece will be ready.

Here are pieces YoLi has painted in the past!

Before we paint your furniture, it needs to be prepped and repaired- we’re proud to announce that we have a brand new craftsman on board- Nick Puglisi! In addition to signing on as craftsman at Mike & YoLi, he is a product designer dedicated to quality and craftsmanship. He is inspired to explore how design, craftsmanship, collaboration, and small business can create vibrant and healthy communities. Nick is also the designer/creator of the BYO Wine Rack sold in our store!



We also offer interior design services if you are in need of a home makeover.

A graduate of the Interior Design Program at the Harrington College of Design, Yolanda De La Mora’s favorite design aesthetic is Regency, Contemporary Eclectic, and Modern. She is a lover of beautiful things and works with layers, textures, and shapes.

“There are few design rules when it comes to surrounding yourself with the things that you love. “Things are only temporary”, people say, but to me, some “things” are beautiful to look at, some represent prestige and some just make you feel a certain way. I always ask my clients to really consider incorporating into their decor the things that really make them feel something. All the while keeping in mind that there is a fine line between having a few beautiful things that make you feel good and too many beautiful things that makes others consider you a hoarder.” ~Y. Gina De La Mora
