Return often to get the latest and most up to date furniture makeover ideas!


We get asked this alot! Most of the furniture projects we work on have a story. We think those stories are worth telling. For some people their furniture pieces have a real sentimental value. 

For others, their furniture is really easy to part with. But when they see the "after", almost all of them can't believe it's the same piece of furniture!

Some of these pieces have traveled great distances and have seen many decades and so have their owners. 

We enjoy meeting the people behind our furniture pieces. Learning and listening to their stories is just as much as fun as the furniture makeover itself!
