I can revive your old or worn furniture to turn it into the highlight of any room or help you to transform the entire space!
I offer a wide range of services, from furniture refinishing to cost-effective interior design/decorating solutions (for those needing a little creative assistance or inspiration) through comprehensive project management assistance (perfect for folks who want to contract out piecemeal projects).
Additional details are listed below. If you don't see something listed, please ask!
* Furniture refinishing
I can work with almost style, do basic repairs, modifications, or upholstering and have extensive experience with antique glazing and distressing.
Most solid wood furniture can be refinished. I've also refinished a variety of other materials (metals, laminates, wood veneers) and added custom detail with painted stencils, mosaic tiles, pennies (sealed in amber shellac), and tin tiles (replaced glass panels in cabinet with tin tiles to hide contents and make more kid friendly).
You choose stain/paint and finish, and I will strip, refinish, and coat exposed surfaces with clear protectant to make sure that the item can withstand daily use/regular kid exposure.
* Interior design
I love redesigning spaces to maximize aesthetic appeal and functionality, choosing complimentary materials, colors, and finishes, and hunting for a bargain on high-quality materials and labor!
I've lived through (and paid for) home renovations and can help you thoroughly plan all the details of your project to get the quality results you want and when you want at the best possible price.
Make the most of your investment while minimizing the risk of cost increases and schedule delays.
I can help to identify whether building permits are required, assist with filing applications, coordinate material selection (finding reusable or surplus supplies where available), ordering/purchase, and delivery, or even lend a helping hand with painting, trim work, tiling, flooring, and other cosmetic updates.
