We didn’t set out to create a furniture company. In fact, we started as a soap company. But over time, we found ourselves drawn to creating works of art and functional pieces of furniture from used building materials and discarded furniture, rather than boiling-up soap “Fight Club” style in the kitchen. Our pieces range from whimsical hand painted barn board signs, to reupholstered, refinished, and chalk painted furniture and up-cycled decorative creations. We do custom work as well as pieces for retail sales.
For as long as I can remember, I loved to paint. I painted my first house from top to bottom. And then my second, third, and fourth. I transformed them with colour into homes that felt welcoming and warm, and then sold them–thankfully for a profit every time. Since my last house was a new build, I got to choose the wall colour at the time I bought it, so I didn’t have any major paint projects for a couple years. Instead, I channeled my love of painting into transforming furniture. It’s a hobby that has turned into a passion.
Matt is a jack of all trades, and enjoys fixing things…whether it be a leaky faucet or his three step-kids. Formally trained to do underwater construction, he now spends his spare time fixing furniture, doing home renovations, and creating custom woodwork.
We hope you enjoy our blog, and encourage you to contact us with any questions, suggestions, or if you’d like to discuss the cost and scope of a custom project.
