Tanglewood Sue

Seriously, Have you seen the way new furniture is made today? Its not even wood! It will last you maybe a couple of years whereas vintage pieces are solidly made and will last you a lifetime.

Save your $$ & Reinvent What You already Have?

(Please note that I am only taking 6 commissions a year and those are only for one of a kind art furniture. I am no longer taking orders for any solid colors or smaller items or any items in need of repair)

Painted Furniture Makeover


Most of my clients just give me a color palette and a few images and just say "Go for it Sue!" If you are not ready for such trust just yet :) we can have a design consultation and really make sure you are on board with your furnitures new look.

Its kinda like I'm your hairdresser. Once you work with me for awhile you'll just say "Gimme something new, something fun, I know I'll love it!"
