You want to paint a piece of furniture but don't know where to begin?
You are stuck on the next steps of your furniture or home decor project?
Or... maybe you just want to discuss the details of your project and get some helpful advice?
I’m more than a DIY expert — I help individuals transform their furniture and home decor pieces into personal favourites while empowering them to try something new.
I understand that starting a project can be scary and I want to help you through each step so that you have the confidence to recreate the spaces around you.
Once you have booked your consultation, you will complete a short questionnaire as well as send a picture of the project we will be discussing. These will help me prepare so that you can get the most out of our time together.
Together, we will talk about your project and what you would like to accomplish. We can discuss all stages of the project - from prep to finish, so that you feel prepared and comfortable completing it at your own pace.
Finally you will receive a list of all of the products and tools we discussed and the general steps to your project. You will also receive a digital copy of our call so you can reference it during your project.
"A huge thank-you to Lisa! Without her knowledge & expertise I would have never chosen to paint my bathroom vanity navy blue. I was thinking boring cream, brown or white. I couldn't envision how it would look in navy but trusted Lisa's vision for the room. She was such a help getting me through this project that I've been afraid to do for the past 2 years."

"Lisa walked me through redoing my coffee table. From sanding it down to choosing the right color, paint and finish. She was fantastic."

"Dear Lisa, Thank you so much for your efforts in helping me to realize my creative talents while repurposing my table. Your encouragement, enthusiasm, and praise were instrumental in my finishing this project. The initial endeavour was overwhelming until you provided me with step-by-step instructions and guidance. In keeping with your mandate, we have saved this piece from the junk pile. Thank you!"
- Loula S.
