Why Paint Furniture?
Upcyling is a responsible and elegant solution to the problem of increased disposable products crowding our landfills
Painted furniture is an extremely popular decorating style
Transform a cherished piece to fit your current décor or preferences
Incorporate a “feature piece” into your home and wait for the “WOW!” responses from visitors
What can I transform
Let’s explore color and style on a piece you’d like to make uniquely yours.
Your piece or my current inventory available for customization?
What I won’t paint
Authentic antiques whose value would be diminished by disturbing the original finish
Pieces that are inherently cherished for their history (such as my grandmother’s primitive Louisiana cypress kitchen table with over 150 years of chippy paint)
Pieces in which the patina and finish are just too beautiful to cover up
What’s fair game with paint brush in hand:
Any piece that has a damaged finish or has lost its luster
Vintage pieces whose color is outdated with current decorating schemes or client preferences
Those that have features that I know would be stunning or attention-getting with specific paint techniques and colors
A piece transformed by Jean Kidd ReDesign Studio will be thoroughly cleaned and prepared. Premium furniture paints and topcoats are applied in multiple steps to assure durability and long-lasting beauty. When appropriate, I love to incorporate fabric, layered textures or specialty papers in the total design.
Who Do I Engage?
I seek to create one-of-a-kind pieces by collaborating with home owners, designers, and stagers.
