Custom Painting

     We specialize in bringing a second life to vintage and antique furniture. We strongly believe in rescuing old furniture.  We love the old pieces from days gone by.  Remember the bedroom set your Grandparents had? The dining room set your Mom had? Those were all beautiful old, wood quality pieces.  The kind that you really can't buy anymore. They were made in America and built to last for generations.  They were not made out of particle board and then had to be assembled.  When I see that someone has tossed away one of these beautiful old pieces, it makes me sad.  These pieces represent American craftsmanship that will not exist again.  Some, or maybe most of these pieces, just need some rejuvenation.  This is the ultimate form of recycling.  Repurpose those old pieces.  Reuse what you have.  When you have worked these old pieces into your current decor, they give you  a warm, nostalgic feel. Best of all---they will last.


Our Process: 
     We do not like to have alot of chemicals around.  We like to use non-toxic materials.  When we take a piece apart, we try to reuse all the pieces that we can.  We do not re-finish.  We paint our pieces and we add artwork to give each piece that original feel and quality of a one of a kind item.  We do various styles; shabby chic, country, victorian, vintage chic and juvenile.  We shop estate sales and auctions looking for truly unique pieces.  Each piece is then treated with a 6-step process and then handpainted and transformed into a useful work of art.  All pieces are truly one of a kind and we try to stay reasonably priced.
