Owner at Reviving by Design in Middleton, WI.

I own and operate Reviving by Design, small business concentrated on painting and refinishing furniture and home accessories. I've been doing it for over 20 years as a hobby, but last year I've decided to make it official and opened my very own business. When it comes to furniture I pick every piece to refinish very carefully, not in a random way: it has to speak to me, I have to envision the end result. I love mixing and making custom colors, using variety of paints, glazes and finishes available on the market. I love experimenting with new products. I also love doing traditional image transfers with printed image, a process, which requires lots of labor, love and patience, challenging yet extremely satisfying.  But most of all I love bringing furniture back to life and making it a piece of art, that reflects my personal interests and vision combined with love of Old World and everything, that relates to it.

I envisioned this piece of furniture right away with playful, cheerful art on the top and happy colors complementing the image. I picked an image from series of paintings Faun and Nymths by H.
