About Me

Hi! I'm Kristen and my online store, Shackteau Interiors, was born out of a love for antique and vintage furniture, interior design, and giving old pieces of furniture new life. My husband and I bought an old Victorian home and I had a lot of furniture that I loved but didn't quite fit in with our new home. I decided to paint, stain, refinish what I had and fell in love again with my "new furniture".

All my pieces are personally selected by me and are all one off's so all pieces are truly unique. I love to find unique pieces and the older the better! I specialize in painting with non toxic, no VOC's, milk paint. I love the finish it creates on older pieces. I get a lot of my coastal design and inspiration from my vacations on Martha's Vineyard. One of my favorite places to be!
