I've used Liz Clausen and Pick Your Seat on multiple projects.  Not only has she helped on residential remodels that I have referred her for but she has also skillfully handled a couple commercial projects I've hired her to design and complete.  In each and every instance she has gone above and beyond her call to make sure things are "done right".  Besides being creative and diligent, she is unfailingly honest and "real".  Liz is at the very top of my list when people ask me for a referral to help with a residential remodel or a commercial job that requires contemporary designs to help attract customers and beautify a space!

I can't say enough wonderful things about the professional and excellent workmanship of Liz Clausen. We have used her numerous times for various services and I am never disappointed and always overjoyed! She is an extremely talented woman.

Liz took a very dated oak armoire we had stuck in our hallway and transformed it into a lovely china cabinet. Now it is the focal showpiece in our dining room. She replaced the back which was originally slotted for a TV and carved out the original wood door panels, replacing them with a gorgeous, high end brass wire mesh. She then applied a special rich navy blue paint finish that just pops against our golden bounty walls. We gave her an idea of the colors and look we were going for and she promptly delivered samples making it very easy for us to choose. None of our friends who have seen the new and improved armoire can believe it was the original old piece. 

Liz is a woman of many talents who has done several other projects for us including a major design and installation of wainscoting, painting and a beautiful built-in entertainment center. You will find her extremely professional, full of great ideas, a dream to work with and eager to deliver the end result that will make you happy. We look forward to working with her on our upcoming projects.

The project was a dining table refinishing. The end result is beautiful and exactly what we wanted. Liz was able to make our dining table look better than brand new and the coordination factor with the other wood tones in the kitchen is amazing! She is a real pro and a joy to work with too.

My project involved customly designed raised vegetable beds. Pickyourseat built beautiful, highly efficient and creatively designed beds. They were able to fabricate off site and build in place to minimize impact on my garden. The project was completed ahead of schedule and they stayed right on budget. I love the way the irrigation system is integrated into my beds and also build in metal trellises for the vines.

Liz has the ability to take the mundane and transform it into something wonderful. In addition, she followed through and completed the project to my satisfaction.

We have hired Liz as a designer on two remodels now and we absolutely love her design esthetic. She listens to our ideas, finds ways to tie them all together and then takes it to the next level. She is also very easy to work with. We highly recommend her!

Liz completed a remodel for us a couple of years ago and was so easy to work with throughout the whole project. Having gone through a few 'decorators', Liz came onto the scene and her ability to listen, create, guide us with 'out of the box' ideas as well as her knowledge of stone, woods, cabinetry, design, metals and the use of natural and green products was endless. Her creativity and ideas were perfect for our needs and Liz knows intuitively what the client is hoping for in their quest for a design or new project. We have a few of her special projects that she has built for us which are unique, natural and beautiful. Working with Liz was easy and she is simply awesome!
