Darice Auston is a wife, mother of four, book lover, diet coke addict, and proprietor of Vintage Charm Furniture.
Born and raised in San Diego, Darice graduated from UCSD with a BA in Communications and a minor in Literature. Although a California girl at heart, she’s spent the majority of her married life on the East Coast, first in Baltimore and currently in Central New York. While in Central New York, she fell in love with furniture revivals, where vintage furniture abounds, though not always in mint condition.
It’s not uncommon to find her wielding a paintbrush one minute and a doll or Lego sword the next. Never short on interruptions but always keeping an eye out for the right piece, hardware, paper, etc., she even has the family pitch in when it’s time to load or unload furniture.
“Darice’s pieces” are available for shipping throughout the US. She also does custom refinishing and consultations, as well as workshops for those who want to do it themselves (only to discover…it may just be easier if she does it for you!).
