Kim was very attentive, reliable and accommodating. She refilled my couch cushion-pillows on the same day that I dropped them off! They look fantastic and the couch has been given a second life! :) I will definitely be hiring her for future upholstry projects!Apr 2, 2017Verified
Simply. Beautiful. I had Kim reupholster my Grandfather's rocking chair and matching foot stool. The chair has a lot of sentimental value to my family and Kim's work has brought it back to life. She's great at communicating and the choices to customize the chair were amazing quality. I would recommend Done by Donovan to everyone! I hope I can find some more pieces for her to transform.Nov 19, 2015Verified
Kim was very friendly and did a great job on recovering our kitchen stools. I was very happy with the large selection of vinyl colors I had to choose from. I would definitely consider going back with future upholstery needs!Dec 15, 2014Verified

- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always had a passion for color and creating! I have been sewing, refinishing furniture and decorating as a hobby all my life. I attended the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and the University of Minnesota for a degree in Design. My favorite part of the upholstery process is taking a vintage piece of furniture and turning it into a one of a kind piece of art. There are so many different fabrics, finishes and details you can choose from to give it your own personality.
