Nest Vintage Modern is located about 20 minutes west of downtown Chicago and services the Brookfield, La Grange, Hinsdale, Riverside, Oak Park, and Forest Park areas.
I’ve been painting furniture for about 20 years and can be your creative partner, working with you to turn your not-so-exciting piece into a fabulous showpiece. That flea market find sitting in the corner could be a show stopper you’re proud to display in your home.
My rate is $65/hour plus the cost of materials. I primarily use very high-quality no VOC paints. Finishes are typically done with soft waxes, sometimes aging waxes are used (depending on the desired end result), but a durable varnish may be appropriate and that can be done as well. We’ll discuss options that are appropriate for the period of your piece. For example, something with vintage French lines can take a lot more texture than a Mid-Century-Modern piece, which looks gorgeous with a glossy solid finish.
All work is done in my Brookfield, IL storefront. We’ll start by looking at finishes you admire or are inspired by. Then I’ll present you with boards done in the finish we work out. Once you approve the finish, I’ll work on the actual piece. Turnaround times are typically 2-3 weeks (often less) for 1 piece. Work starts once you’ve received an estimate and provided a deposit for the work to be done.
