I love painting on tables!  It’s the perfect blending of folk art and function!  It all started when I painted a rustic old camp table, made by my dad decades ago, with several Rufus Porter style vignettes.   My brother then applied a beautiful, protective clear coat finish to the tabletop...that looked like glass…and suddenly, an idea was born!  People who saw the table loved the way it was both a work of art and a functional piece of furniture.  Today, I am re-purposing tables found in my journeys throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire with Rufus Porter style early American folk art! 

If you are looking for unique, painted furniture with a period-style ambiance for your traditional home, look no further!  Each table is an original 1-of-a-kind!  I would love to customize a table just for you.  Please contact me if you have a table you would like painted, or if you would like me to find and paint the perfect table for you!
