About us

 

Welcome to our story! 
At The Lovemade Home we specialize in creating handmade trash cabinets, and laundry hampers. Two of the dirtiest places a home can have, hidden in a beautiful cabinet and out of sight. Let us help you tidy up the mess and clutter of life. Everything is handmade and shipped out of Kansas City, Missouri. We handle each part of this business ourselves. Tom manages the building process and I am the person you'll chat with if you have questions or concerns. 

We started this handmade business several years ago in our garage. Back then we were building a variety of different items out of any pallets we could get our hands on. The very first item we listed was on Etsy. It was a beautiful pallet desk. Tom carried it in from the garage. I was super excited! I told him I thought it was love-made by him. Later that night, he told me he was going to name the company Lovemade14. 2014 was the year we joined families. We had no idea of the adventure we would be on together. In 2021, we updated our name to The Lovemade Home to encompass more of what we build.
 
Since then we have maintained a long-standing reputation with Etsy but we felt the company needed room to grow and reach more families. In November of  2017, we started Lovemade14.com. We have also introduced many more items to our inventory. We are happy to say these item request came from customers who loved our cabinets enough to ask for more furniture. See our FOR THE HOME section for new and beautiful designs for farmhouse coffee tables, shelving and elevated pet feeders. We're always listing new designs, so be sure to visit our store from time to time for new products and decorating ideas. 
 
Each trash cabinet and hamper are handmade from start to finish. We tested out every new product in our own home before we introduced it in our shop. We know how each item will function and how it withstands the wear and tear of everyday life with kids, dogs, and busy grown-ups! We still use our original trash cabinet today! We are proud to offer such elegant, eye-catching solutions to trash and laundry needs. We believe every part of life, even the kitchen trash, should be as happy as we can make it. With every order, we are honored to have the opportunity to build for another customer. We appreciate being trusted by our customers to build something they will use every day, for years and years. 
 
We love hearing how our customers feel about their new furniture and seeing pictures of our items in their new, forever home - so be sure to post a picture of your bin to Instagram and tag it #THELOVEMADEHOME.  Tell us how you are using your new cabinet. Will it be a coffee bar? A microwave cart? Perhaps it holds your pet food? The possibilities are endless.
 
We truly hope you find what fits your home and lifestyle here. We have so many awesome choices!

Thank you for considering our shop!
With love,
Tom and Jo Beth

P.S. - We give back. 
We have pledged to donate to two causes very close to our hearts this year, Homes for Our Troops fund and lung cancer research. These are two charities that are near and dear to us. Tom is an Army veteran and I am a widow from lung cancer. We feel so blessed to be able to do what we love, we want to give back so that others may have a better chance at life.
