Asian Style Buffet

HAPPY TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY, Y'ALL! Another re-invitaged piece for y'all this week! This piece is just so beautiful. The detail, the design, honestly everything about it is gorgeous! If it's original color was kept in better condition - I may have even considered enhancing it a bit, but since it was kind of scratchy and chippy, we went on and did something drastic! WE WENT BLUE! WHY WE LOVE THIS PIECE We love this piece because it really shows the intricacy that goes into...

Buffet Style

IT'S TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY, Y'ALL! This week's transformation has to be one of our most dramatic, by far! We took this buffet, gave it some legs, and it literally gave it a 180-degree transformation!

Mid-Century Dresser

IT'S TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY Y'ALL! I feel like I say this almost every week, but I can't help it because it's really true about every piece - this was one of our favorite pieces! Guys, this dresser before and after is probably one of our greatest transformations! This dresser literally had wallpaper on the top. Typically we don't go after projects to this extent but we knew the reveal would be one of the best transformations we've ever had. This dresser took...

Oakdale Living Room Before + After

Having a store with a certain aesthetic caused people to continually ask if we offered design services. We would always help people in store design a room through pictures and emails, so after a while I decided I would give it a go. After all, I had just finished designing my parents house and had done two houses of our own. I am so glad that I took that leap two years ago as I have so enjoyed working with...

5 ways to customize furniture

One of the reasons why I just adore painted furniture is there are so many ways to customize it!

When you are customizing vintage, you can think out of the box and find the perfect for your space. 1. Color One of the obvious reasons that people love...

Q&A – Do you paint pieces that people already own?

This is another top asked question for the MegMade team. It is asked by everyone - customers, designers and other furniture painters. The answer is yes, we do. So many other painted furniture sellers have shied away from painting pieces that people already own and I totally get why. The stakes are high when it is a beloved family heirloom. However, we believe so much in our process and the artisans that work on them, that we know our customers will...
