Finish By Design, Chippewa Falls, WI

Finish By Design is a custom wood furniture repair & refinishing shop with an added enthusiasm for upcycling old broken furniture into new home decor. Typical projects include re-gluing chairs, fixing cracked tables, sheet caning, veneer repair and many interesting finishes. I have developed relationships with several other craftsmen in the area to help coordinate complimentary skills sets like upholstery or lath work.

Finish By Design’s arsenal of faux finishes includes:

  • Metallics
  • Patinas
  • Gold leaf
  • Color washed
  • Distressed
  • Glazed, crackled, dyed and stained finishes.

Some of my clients bring in samples or pictures or projects they want matched. Many types of name-brand finishing materials, designed for specific types of application, are applied with the end goal of durability. I enjoy the challenge of developing new techniques in faux finishing and have combined all the finishing, fixing and craftsmanship learned in my lifetime into one business: Finish By Design.
