What We Do
Custom Furniture Finishes and Painting
Because of the nature of furniture painting, custom work is done in my studio. I can either use a piece that you already own, I can source one for you, or you can choose from the “previously loved” pieces I have in my collection. Prices will vary based on price of original piece (if applicable), the size and type of piece, and the finish you select. If you need some inspiration or want to see some of my specialty finishes, just go to our product gallery.
To get a quote, email me a picture of what you want, the source of the piece, and any other details you feel are important. A quote will then be sent to you and a sample board can be created ahead of time (if needed) for a fee of $100. If work is agreed upon, it will be credited toward the total cost of the commissioned piece. Revisions in scope are permitted within reason until signed agreement is complete and work commences.
Upcycled Furniture & Home Decor
Many of these pieces were made as part of my Artist in Residency program with Amy Howard at Home. All pieces are revived using the highest quality products from Amy Howard at Home and A Makers Studio. I also go to great lengths to procure high quality, older age pieces of the highest craftsmanship.
You can be sure that your purchase is not only beautiful and unique (no mass market Ikea stuff), but you’re also helping the environment by reusing something that would likely end up in a landfill.
All pre-made furniture and decor can be picked up locally or delivered to anywhere in the continental US. Please contact me directly for a shipping quote (its cheaper than you may think) if you are outside of the greater Seattle area.
There are so many great products that you absolutely need to check out. We’ve got your basic chalk-based paints and brushes as well as furniture transfers, milk paint, chalk art, waxes, etching creams, etc. If you know exactly what you need, just go for it, but if you need ideas, please visit my blog page for project tutorials that include supply lists. You can also just peruse the sites to see what we have. I am always available for questions, ideas, and advice. Happy shopping!
