For Painted furniture, custom work and murals, we accept checks, money orders, and EFT. A minimum deposit of 50% of the total estimate is due before the beginning of any custom work. Remaining balance, including any shipping and handling, is remitted at completion of order prior to shipment. All shipping and insureance charges are the responsibilty of the buyer. Unfinished furniture not produced in our studio may need to be ordered from the manufacturer, and that can add to the completion time by up to an additional four weeks.
As all of our painted furniture are unique works, and dependent upon feedback from our clients, each is priced separately. Simply flil out our Contact Form and an estimate can be custom-tailored for you.
Decor items, like our painted furniture, are all made to order, and inquiries for prices and orders can be made using our Contact Form.
As with any type of creative work, completion times for our functional art pieces vary, based on type of item, size, and type of artwork. We ask for a minimum of 4 weeks delivery times on most items, although larger pieces, auch as painted dressers and armoires, and custom-built furniture, can take longer.
After using the Contact Form, and all items and themes have been selected, and deposits (for large pieces) or order totals (for decor items) paid, we begin the process of creating our unique works of functional art. In almost all cases, the process is similar:
Stage One: After the client chooses a furniture piece and design, we begin by carefully sanding and priming the piece.
Stage Two: Working with the client, we paint a unique image on the piece, custom-tailored to the client's desires.
Stage Three: After the client has okayed the design, we apply several coats of clear protective finish, and prepare the piece for shipping or delivery.
Due to the unique nature of our work, and constantly changing fuel costs, our painted furniture and other large items will be shipped by UPS or FEDEX ground when possible, but will often need to be shipped by frieght. In some cases, the shipping costs can be well over $100 per piece. We do our best to keep shipping costs down, but shipping costs for larger pieces, such as dressers, can vary greatly, and will be calculated on an individual basis. Items are shipped by ground freight when necessary, and smaller items can be shipped through parcel carriers such as USPS, FedEx, and DHL. This fee will include any applicable shipping insurance on all furniture items, which is carried on all shipments.
