I offer a complete strip and refinishing service. We can create a one-of-a-kind piece that fits your
style. As professionals, we use only top-quality paints, stains, and clear coats for durable, long-
lasting results.

  • Custom glazes
  • Metallic paints and Patinas
  • Gold, silver and copper leaf
  • Distressed finish
  • Faux finish combinations
  • White wash or other color wash finishes

We refinish pianos to their grand state. Techniques include:
  • Filled Pore
  • Black Satin

Re-purpose, Up-cycle, or Junk to Treasures
Whatever name you want to use, let me ask you a question.
How many times have you come across something on pinterest and wished you knew a business
that would make it for you? Well lets talk about your idea. Do you have the raw materials or need a
resource to find them? Do you have the tools and knowledge it takes for the project to be built in a
manner that is structurally sound, and has a decorative and practical application? These types of
projects are by far my favorite to do. Lets take some (junk) and make something thats a one of a
kind piece.

  • Turn an old piano into a book case.
  • Make cabinets from a fence
  • Make a mirror frame out of crown molding
  • Convert a sewing machine into a desk.
  • Transform a headboard into a bench with storage.

Let your mind wander and be creative.

We offer repair services for those scratched, cracked, gouged, broken, or otherwise damaged
items you can’t bear to part with.

  • Rickety chairs in need of gluing.
  • Sticky table slides that don’t operate correctly.
  • Furniture legs chewed or clawed by your four-legged friend.
  • Dresser drawers that are falling apart.
  • Veneer repairs.
  • Color touch-up repair
….and much more.

We also can custom replicate replacement pieces.
Pickup and delivery available. We’ll come to your home, provide a written quote, package your
furniture for safe delivery and drop it off when it’s done. It’s more affordable than you think.
