Before and After
My favourite part of what I do is the reveal. To see what a piece looked like when it entered my shop versus the final result excites me every time. Clients are often surprised at the hidden potential their furniture has. I'm always happy to deliver a product which hopefully will be loved again and treasured for many more years.
Each piece is treated as if it were my own and carefully finished using only top quality stains, varnishes and paints. Some furniture finds new life re-purposed as one of a kind, unique pieces.

Completely restyled, this steamer trunk has been given a new purpose as a storage chest. I lined it with fresh cedar panels and a stunning fabric. The outside was polished and given a coat of polyurethane to make it shine anew.
I converted this hutch into a one of a kind piece, to be used as either a kitchen island or bar. The top is made of reclaimed spalted ash. The hutch was completely transformed, stripped of paint and refinished in a custom blended stain.
This merchant's hutch is well over 100 years old with charm and character by the handful. A good polishing and minor repairs was all this glorious piece needed to highlight its age and beauty.
This armoire, although vintage wasn't the most practical in today's modern age of built in closets and needed a new purpose. It has been converted into a sweet dress up closet for kids. Complete with a mirror in the door and lots of space for costumes and accessories.
I picked this piece up in Clifford, Ontario - a small town near Walkerton. Stripping away the faux finish revealed gorgeous red oak. Original hardware adds to its appeal.
New glass door and a complete refinish for a client. This heirloom piece now takes its place front and centre in her home.
Made in China of solid oak, the client wanted a new, fresh look for her dining set. In this case, a restained top, painted legs and chairs give it a rustic, cozy charm.
I talked my client out of painting her beloved grandmother's cedar hope chest. She was so glad I did! Just look at the cedar grain.
An example of a more modern piece that is quite lovely painted.
This gorgeous hutch belonged to my client's late husband. It was quite an honour to restore it for her so she could cherish it as much as he did.
I'm pleased to also offer light re-upholstery services, mainly dining room chairs. I source beautiful fabric from a local family owned shop to give your dining set that personal touch.
