Bev, a new client of mine, requested that I create a faux marble finished table top for her dining room table. This was my first such attempt at a faux marble look. After watching some youtube channels I knew I had this in the hat. I really didn’t need much other than a sponge I […]
A new client of mine, Melissa from St. George, Ontario, sent this farmhouse dining set over to my studio along with a buffet and hutch that I will share over the next few days. As dining room sets go, this is certainly one of the most beautiful and ornate pieces that I have ever seen. […]
Such a wonderful journey for this beautiful French Bistro Maple Table. A new client of mine “Darlene” contacted me back in January to source a table and chairs for her new condo that she would be moving into in March. The inspiration photo she sent me was this very chic dining set with a bistro […]

This interesting mid century painted dining set made by the fine furniture maker Malcolm was found in “Crystal” Beach back in late November along with a buffet. I had never been to Crystal Beach before but could envision it being fantastic in the summer time.
