Dump the trash not the furniture!

KarenSadlerCabinetInteriorDo you have a piece of furniture that you think is ruined? Did you have a flood, or a bad dog, or a not so handy handyman? Before you head off to the city dump or pull your back out heading for the curb, call Alana, the furniture doctor and get a second opinion!KarenSadlerCabinetBaseW:banner

Call Alana at Just Faux Fun, Inc. in Wilmington, NC. You can even email Alana a photo of the “victim” and she can give you a “diagnosis” via email. Alana has fixed many, many wonderful things that had mishaps, termites, destructive pets,  children, hurricanes, etc.. Alana can patch, bondo, glue, faux finish to match missing veneers, missing carving, missing knobs, missing moldings and much, much more!

KarenSadlerCabinetBaseClosed

Perhaps your furniture or furnishings are family heirlooms and it breaks your heart to think of trashing them. Alana will bring her magic paintbrush and work wonders in restoring it to it’s former glory. She can match wood grains of all kinds, french provincial and french country style paint finishes, marquetry, mother of pearl, real and faux marble, fine painted designs, gold leaf and metallic patinas. You name it, she has even matched army camouflage, malachite, burl wood, leather, burlap, rattan, faux snakeskin, and mother of pearl!

It never hurts to see how little it may cost to save your wonderful piece from the graveyard of furniture wreckage. And what a great conversation piece to captivate your guests with the stories of battle scars, massacres and resurrection from an near-fated furniture fatale!KarenSadlerCabinetInteriorAfter

The proof is in the pudding. Judge for yourself and see if this fabulous cabinet was worth saving from the landfill. These clients were very satisfied and will enjoy the second life of their long-loved cabinet!KarenSadlerCabinetAfterW:banner
