We up-cycle and refurbish quality furniture and antiques.  We treasure handcrafted furniture and decor made in the USA and strive to give it another 100 years of use in the homes of today. 


The pic on the right is my work space in the workshop, which is located in the back of the Unique Nook Store, 224 S. Lafayette Street in Greenville, MI.

Our workshop is located in Greenville Michigan, which is 30 minutes north east of Grand Rapids, Michigan.   A group of four dedicated up-cyclers spend their time repairing and saving beautiful furniture.  We paint items when the wood has been damaged or is inferior so quality wooden antiques are preserved rather than changed.  This fun-loving group has been rescuing furniture for over 20 years.  We use quality enamel paint, many brands of chalk paint, and a variety of top coats, poly, and wax to protect furniture.  Custom orders are welcome and often customers bring us their treasured pieces to be paint to match their current decor.

Attending estate sales, auctions and occasional yard sales to find great pieces that need loving help is our idea of fun.  We often up-cycle things to give them a new use but really enjoy seeing the craftsmanship in some of the quality pieces we come across.   Part of our mission is to save furniture from being burned or thrown away.   It is a great feeling to change unwanted items into beautiful pieces that others will treasure. 


Michigan was a large manufacturer of quality furniture in the past and it's especially fun to find pieces that were made in Michigan.  America made beautiful hand-crafted furniture and customers are seeing the value in saving it.
