One of my re-purpose projects

Many of you may not know that in addition to our custom furniture finishes and decorative wall finishes, I also will re-finish home-owner’s existing pieces to re-purpose for use with their updated decor. Recently, I’ve found several others that do the same thing and I have shared a few their beautiful  projects with you above. Let me know if yo have a favorite?

Not only does it conserve resources (both environmental and financial) to use older pieces of furniture, but it also keeps these pieces out of the landfills. The furniture business is the number two user of wood behind paper and one of the largest contributors to the landfill. So, why not take a second look at that old piece of furniture and re-purpose it?
