Maple for me is always a bit of a refinishing nightmare and this painted maple desk was no exception. My original plan was to refinish the top and paint the rest of the cabinet but the maple, because it is so dense, isn’t very favourable to stain. After fussing with the top I decided to […]
I just had to share this unique painted games table I did for a repeat client “Lesley” this past winter. I had never seen anything like it before. It’s unique in that the top folds over when closed and swivels and opens to a larger surface area to play games on. So clever! I first […]
This lovely painted Malcolm sofa table desk is a mahogany piece that I picked up on the Niagara “Parkway”. The Parkway runs along the Niagara River from Niagara-on-the-Lake through Niagara Falls and on to Fort Erie in the south.

I typically don’t become attached to a piece but she really is extraordinary. Her regal crown, hutch with glass shelves and doors, that […]
