  • Instagram

Services include (but aren't limited to):

  • upholstery/reupholstery, custom benches, headboards and cushions

  • furniture painting and restyling

  • custom sewn home furnishings (pillows, quilts, storage baskets etc)

Vintage and antique home accents are available in the retail shop, or through the new online SHOP.

After years of being a prop builder & fashion stylist, I started studying to be an upholsterer over 7 years ago. After a few years of working out of a third floor studio, I opened a brick and mortal shop in 2019. 

 

I love getting lost in a project, getting my hands dirty & making something from nothing. Let me help you with your project, get your spaces finished, or help you do that DIY you know you are never going to get to. I’d love to hear from you & hear your ideas. Let’s get making!
