Hello, I'm Marissa.

In 2007 I refinished my first piece of furniture, well it wasn't a piece it was a set. The bedroom set that has lived in 6 Chicago bedrooms with me. In fact my history with the bedroom set goes back much further, it was the bedroom set in my parent's bedroom my entire childhood. A good sand, black paint and knew knobs gave that set a whole new life halfway across the country and ignited a passion in me I didn't know I had. 

Now ten years later, I have refinished many small pieces for myself in various apartments. I swear I gave a coffee table its second, third, forth and maybe even fifth life before we finally broke up last year. Now I invite you on the journey with me hunting for great pieces, giving them knew life, making mistakes and learning new techniques.
