I give new life to old furniture with a love for antiquity, attention to beauty, and a passion for nostalgia. Every object tells a story; an evolving narrative throughout its existence. I'm interested in starting a new chapter for each piece I refinish, writing a second story. Every piece is redesigned with thought and artistic expertise using clients' taste preferences as a guideline. Working with a furniture refurbisher honors our histories through sentimentality and our futures through sustainable practices (no more furniture in landfills!). My studio is made up of me and my beloved tools in the basement of my Philadelphia home. I've been painting and decoupaging furniture since I was a teenager and decided to take it to a professional level in my late 30s. I do this in my spare time when I'm not working a full-time job or tinkering in home renovations.
Danielle turned a bench I sat on in my childhood beside my cousins at Christmas dinner - a bench I thought would be an afterthought in my home - into the most cherished piece of art I own.

How it Works
Already own your piece? Amazing! Maybe it has sentimental value or you don't feel like starting from scratch. No matter the situation, I'm here to help. We'll discuss design ideas, timelines, and delivery options. I'll compile an estimate* before getting started.
Need something new? Fun! This gives us carte blanche to find the perfect fit for your home. We'll chat about what you're looking for and the space it will occupy. Then I go on the hunt for a secondhand piece. This may take up to several weeks depending on your needs. Meanwhile, we'll talk design, timelines and delivery options. Once I find the right item, I'll send an estimate* for total costs.
*Please note that estimates may differ from the final invoice depending on materials, add-ons, and delivery. All payments are required in full upon delivery via Venmo or cash. No returns or refunds.
Each creation is made with love and I will go above and beyond to create the piece of your dreams!
I believe good design and storytelling can bring an object's personality to life. Working with my clients' preferences is of utmost importance when starting a project to ensure they have something to be treasured for life.
My design approach is influenced by a fine arts education and my professional position in home decor product development. My goal is to provide a personalized experience from concept to completion for each and every client.
