About Us

We did2015-07-14 11.36.32n’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.
