About Me

My Photo
1Peter 4:10 says, Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms. This is my goal. Burlap Street is a small company that sells mostly upholstered headboards, benches, and some painted pieces of furniture. I set up at Scott Antique Market the second weekend of every month in Atlanta, GA. I can also do custom paint techniques on your furniture or cabinets that are in need of a makeover. Most of our products have been recycled and made new again. I like the idea of giving new life to something old. My homebase is in the beautiful north GA mountains, Sautee Nacoochee, and I am local to the Atlanta area. If you are interested in any of my products, please reach me at burlapstreet@gmail.com or 404-274-5506.I am on Facebook too!

Scott Antique Market

Burlap Street will Not be at Scott Antique Market until late fall. I am still doing custom orders so if you would like to place an order for a headboard just text/call or email me. 404-274-5506 or burlapstreet@gmail.com. Lead time on a custom headboard is  two weeks.  I make deliveries to the metro Atlanta area.  Call or text for delivery pricing.
Check out the  post on this blog, titled Current Inventory, to see the styles and sizes we offer and keep in mind each style can be customized to your liking!

We also paint furniture, kitchen cabinets, and interior walls. Call for estimates.
Each month I like to share a blog, scripture or teaching I have read  about Jesus. He so graciously saved my soul 9 years ago and changed the coarse of my life but more importantly changed the coarse of  my eternity! He took my heart of stone and gave me a heart of flesh. He called me out of darkness and into the light.  If you have not put your trust in Jesus Christ and you are reading this, it might be about more than just a headboard. :)

Worldview Matters:
It is important to speak truth with love. Not compromising one or the other is often difficult with today's complicated topics. I have shared a link below of one of my all time fav websites
gty.org John Macarthur
Unfortunately in our postmodern age biblical theology has been replaced by a dumbed down
prosperity gospel. This gospel confuses the difference between lasting joy that can be experienced in difficult times with  happiness that can come and go hourly.    Many of today's evangelicals are inconsistent and not sober minded. This shallow form of preaching leaves us empty when prosperity doesn't come our way and also leaves us  without answers for the unbelieving world. The prosperity gospel is not the Bible's gospel. I encourage you this summer to read from writers before the postmodern age such as the Puritans (Watson, Burroughs, etc),  study church history, (being able to explain what really happened in the Crusades- not revisionist history), and study the scriptures with proper hermeneutics. The bible, old and new testaments, are about Jesus! Not us. Old testament reading is constantly pointing toward Christ.  Foreshadowings of the Christ to come.

"He must increase, but I must decrease." John 3:30


Everyone battles sin. It is not unique. The scary part is when we as a society start calling  sin "right" even celebrating sin thus eliminating man's need for repentance and a Savior. We have a God that loves to forgive. Repentance should be daily. hourly.
Sometimes the best answer to fighting sin are the means of grace:
prayer, hearing the word of God preached (worship), communion, baptism, and reading scripture.
(Reading scripture with the hard work of proper exegesis) God delights in using the ordinary means of grace in blessing the saints. I encourage you to partake in the means of grace.

Wellspring Living in Atlanta

I want to let you in on how you helped support a great ministry if you purchased something or hired us to do a project for your home. A portion of all income at Burlap Street goes to this absolutely awesome ministry.  I love this place and the way it is managed.  I have personally volunteered at the women's facility and I love how they help women who have suffered.  And I love how they Invite Jesus into the healing process which to me is paramount for success.
Wellspring Living is a program that has been in place since 2001. It was started by Mary Frances Bowley. She wanted to help girls who are in trouble. Girls who are on drugs, on the street, abused, and /or involved in prostitution and sex trafficking. Wellspring Living rescues women and girls. They provide them shelter, education, counseling and a future. One in 4 girls will be sexually abused before the age of 18. Girls who are abused have a higher rate of becoming victim to the sex trade and from there, trafficking. According to the U.N., human trafficking is considered the fastest growing criminal industry in the world.  Shocking and depressing. Millions of women and children are kidnapped, or coerced and taken into captivity every year. They are forced into a lifestyle of prostitution and drugs. 27 million men, women, and children are trapped in slavery today – more than any other time in human history.  People often think it is an international problem but it is here in the states!!  Atlanta is the third largest hub for sex trafficking in the U.S. 
Most women and girls in this lifestyle will have a very difficult time getting out and will even die there. But there are incredible people like Mary Frances, who decided she wouldn't sit by and let it happen, she would fight it. Wellspring has become a nationally recognized organization in the fight against sex trafficking.  When you step out in faith, The Lord does mighty things and moves thru his people. We just have to hear the call and be obedient.   If you already have a purpose that is dear to you, just your prayers for the ministry are appreciated, if not, you can give to Wellspring Living. We just wanted others to be aware of a great place to help here in Atlanta, and to also know, that everyone of us can do something to change our world, no matter how small that something may seem. Just take a step. Indifference is not an option.   Use your gifts, talents, and time to make a difference.  Always always pray for the people who are trapped, and last but not least give. God gives to us so that we may give to others.  To learn more about Wellspring Living go to www.wellspringliving.org

Above all else guard your heart for it is the wellspring of life. Proverbs 4:23
