Hi Rachael. I just got back today and was so amazed and happy about your beautiful work on our sideboard. It had bothered me for a long rime that I had let my grandfathers furniture get damaged. Now it is the best I have ever seen it . Really nice work. Thank you.
"The table Rachael worked on turned out even better then I expected. The table needed restored but then sustained additional damage during transport. After Rachael was done the damage was not noticeable and the restoration was beautiful. I would refer Rachael to any one that wants the best!"
"Rachael is honestly the best! She has done several furniture repairs for our store Next Level Design & Furniture and her quality of work is unbelievable. "
"Rachael 'The Rach' is absolutely THE BOMB! Not only is she an extremely talented artist, she is also an extremely talented furniture restore/refinsher. She is incredibly knowledgeable about furniture history and gave me the background of the manufacturer of the dresser and and vanity that I inherited form my Grandparents. She restored both pieces beautifully and I'm sure I cried when she delivered them back to me. I then hired her to paint and treat my indoor, traditionally styled buffet to be used on outdoor patio. WOW! the paint job was so beautiful, it looks like it was manufactured that way. Rachael is talented, fair, incredibly personable and a delight to work with. I highly recommend her for your next furniture refinishing project."
Our loss here in California is your gain in the great state of Idaho with and amazing talent. Whether it is furniture repair, replicating, refinishing, or painting, Rachael pours herself into each repair or piece of art with her whole heart and a level of talent that would be hard o match.
"We just finished a major home remodel and Rachael painted all of our outlet covers in the kitchen, bar and office to match the porcelain and wood finishes. We also had several cabinets that were scratched during install and they needed to be repaired or replaced. Rachael was able to hide every single mark and you absolutely cannot see any of the previous damage. Her work is amazing and everyone should have her on speed dial!! Thank you Rachael."
Amazing service and beautiful craftsmanship! Thank you!
