Sewing Chair

I picked up this chair not realizing that it is actually a sewing chair equipped with a drawer for storing supplies and spools of thread. I gave it a face-lift with black chalk paint and a fun fabric.

Dining Set

I picked up this dining set from a local painter for a fantastic deal. The table top was stained and scratched, the leather on the chairs was cracking, and it definitely needed a face-lift. I sanded and stained the table top, reupholstered the chairs, and painted the table base and chairs. I used a light grey chalk paint, but then glazed the painted surfaces with an antiquing glaze to give them a more aged look.

Custom Dining Set

So a friend wanted her grandmother’s wood dining table and six chairs updated. I painted them with Aspire endless and final finish, and then reupholstered the chairs to give them a more contemporary look.

Barn Doors

Using reclaimed hardware from an old barn, Matt created custom barn doors to divide our garage into “his” workshop, and “my” paint shop. Unfortunately my side has been taken over by outdoor furniture, bikes, and junk. Approximate size: 6′ tall by 8′ wide.

Updated Buffet

This buffet needed some repairs to make the drawers and cupboards fit properly. It was then chalk painted grey, glazed with black, and sealed with matte polyurethane to give it an updated look.

Sugar Shack Stool

This rustic stool was crafted from found wood at an old sugar shack. The seat is made from box elder and the legs are made of sugar maple.


Upcycled Headboard Bench

Here’s a cute little garden bench that we made from an upcycled (aka curbside) headboard and footboard.

A Box for a Friend

This was an overdue gift for a good friend living overseas. I finished it a while ago, but wanted to wait until she received it before posting anything here and ruining the surprise. A box inside a box, with another gift inside the inside box.

Custom Record Box

Matt was recently commissioned to make a custom record box which will serve as a wedding gift. It turned out beautifully.  Made from pallet wood with his hand tools.  Lined with black fleece and finished with stain and polyurethane.

Reclaimed Wood Door Frame

Matt’s was commissioned to make a reclaimed wood door frame. Made with pallet wood, it turned out beautifully.
