Furniture respraying is growing in popularity and so is Paint-It-Like-New! Our recent appearance on City TV’s CityLine has gotten us a lot of attention.
More and more home owners are discovering the advantages of refinishing their outdated or unused furniture including doors, kitchen cabinets, tables, chairs, armoires, TV cabinets and headboards. We were thrilled to be invited to showcase our fantastic furniture spraying success stories with the viewers of the GTA’s most decorating friendly television station.
We’re going to be closed this Saturday August 5th until August 7th for the long weekend and enjoy some of the last few summer days! We can’t believe it’s over but all good things come to an end! We hope you get out and enjoy the sunshine while it’s here, have a safe and happy weekend! We will re-open Tuesday, August 8th at 10am
This past spring I sold my house. I had lived in this house for almost three years. I loved living in downtown Burlington. I had purchased it for it’s charm, the pool and it was just around the corner from my son’s school. But in September 2014 my son started high school and it was quite a distance from our home. I started to think about downsizing, not having a pool (yes it is a lot of work!) and purchasing in one of my other favorite area’s in Burlington (Aldershot) were Josh would be bused to high school. Plus I had completed the entire house and was ready for a new creative project!!
The house sold and the hunt for my new property began. When I had purchased this last house I had really wanted a bungalow that I could open up. With a divorce wrapping up, my friends and family encouraged me to purchase a property that wouldn’t be quite as much work……good call!!! But this time, I was rested and ready for the challenge!! I found the perfect home, a 2 bedroom bungalow on the main floor and a third room above the garage. The basement was finished but needed some sprucing up.
Next I hired a contractor. I was lucky to meet a talented and enthusiastic group of young men who own “Elite Home Services.” Mike, Tyler and Mark the owners, each have their own highly skilled talents, but as a team, they kick some serious a**!! We walked through the house prior to close (May 15th) and I was able to give them my wish list. With the permits in hand and sub trades hired we were able to hit the ground running. The pictures you see below were all taken before June 4th!!! This is the main area, living room, dining room and kitchen. The kitchen in particular is the area that I worked on with my staff…… I will be posting some afters in the coming weeks!!
We are so excited to announce that we will be a part of the designers and decorator’s recreating a piece for this year’s Chair Affair in support of the Furniture Bank Toronto!
If you haven’t heard of the Furniture Bank, it’s a wonderful non-profit organization that collects gently used furniture and household items and donates them to families and persons in need. They mostly help folks in the GTA who are transitioning, leaving abusive situations or immigrating to Canada. The concept is truly near and dear to our hearts, without organizations like these so many great pieces of furniture would end up in the landfills and wouldn’t be doing any good for anyone. And isn’t that the point? It makes us feel all warm and fuzzy when we can help out people in our neighbourhood by doing something so simple! All you need to do, is give the furniture bank a call and set up a time to have your old pieces removed! They take care of the rest and it’s cheaper than bringing it to a landfill, the bonus- you’ll be helping someone rebuild the most import place- their home!
The theme for this year’s chair affair is just that- HOME! We are trying to recreate what home means through fabric, colour selection, stain and accessories and recreate a piece of furniture for auction. The night is filled with food, fun, auctions and design! If you’re interested in learning more, or attending *ahem we will be there so come say HI!* you can go to the www.furniturebank.org to learn more, like when and where!
This is the piece we have selected for a make-over! We can’t share the details yet but we’re excited for you to see the result! Speaking of which.. we better get back to work!
Have a great day!
Paint it Like New!
To continue last week’s post on “we love your stuff” we recently received a very kind email from one of our customers. She had brought in a plain crib and wanted to give her baby room a big personality!
Check out the crib we sprayed in turquoise for her new bundle of joy!
