Custom built bench from repurposed crib, honey stain and gray-green paint


We were delighted with Amy’s work in re-purposing our grandchildren’s old crib. Her woodworking skills were excellent and gave us a new use for a treasured piece of furniture. She listened carefully to our requests including keeping our grandchildren’s teeth marks on the side rails. Further, her prices were reasonable and she completed the project in a timely manner. We are now proud to display our new bench in the foyer of our home where we are reminded of the delight that we shared when caring for our grandchildren. I highly recommend Amy when contemplating re-purposing furniture!

Amy's Upcycles, Pottstown PA, upcycle, refinish, restore, painted furnitureI am very happy with the bedroom furniture set you refinished!  It looks great!  I was so tired of looking at the scratched finish on the tops of the dressers.  It looks so beautiful now.
It was a pleasure working with you and I would highly recommend you for all types of furniture refinishing.  It helped so much having you pick the furniture up and return it to me.
Thanks again!

Amy was great. She came to my house and helped me design a table to fit my room. My table and two benches are unique and well crafted. I highly recommend her !!!

I cannot say enough about Amy and her creativity, not to mention her finished product. She listened intently to what I had in mind, upcycling 3 pieces for me. One piece involved gaining color inspiration from a painting I had in my home. Amy chose the perfect shade of teal, added a tiny bit of black and also some gold and the small sideboard turned out BEAUTIFULLY. She also upcycled a side table, painting it black and then roughing it up a bit to match other furniture, and then on the way out of my house we both noticed a tiny table on my porch where the tile had come up and it was just a mess. She re-tiled and painted it and it’s now a show-stopper on the porch. I highly recommend Amy, who came to me by way of designer Robyn Jewitt. Thank you Robyn! Thank you Amy!

Amy is awesome! She did a beautiful job updating our dining room table and hutch from the early ’90s. We absolutely love it!
Amy responded right away and came to pick up the furniture at my convenience. She takes the time to really listen to what you want and goes the extra mile to make sure you are getting exactly what you asked for. Amy made a few trips to my house to show me how the stain looked.  She completed the work in the time frame promised and even sent me progress photos,  which was an appreciated touch. Amy works on your piece as if it were her own. Can’t ask for more than that!

I’ve had Amy do a few pieces for me; all were inherited from my grandmother. I had ideas in mind but like a true artist, she brought them to life. She asked me questions to flesh out what I wanted in the end piece. She checked in during the process to make sure she was on the right track creating what I had envisioned. She picked up and dropped off the pieces. All in all, Amy was an absolute pleasure to work with. I have a couple more pieces to transform and I’m excited to work with her to bring them to fruition.

Amy was recommended and it was one of the best referrals I’ve ever gotten.
Her work is timely.
Her prices are fair and reasonable.
Her attitude is professional.
Her personality is warm and friendly.
She gives good advice, meaning it benefits and respects the client.
She refinished my dining room table and repaired and ‘refreshed’ a cabinet.
Both look great: the cabinet is respectable and pretty again, and the table is transformed.
Amy listened to my concerns and responded to them, even providing me with a relevant referral.

Yes, I would use her services again.

Amy was easy to talk to- friendly and creative- and overall amazing to work with! I appreciate her passion to reinvent old pieces and bring them back to life! Thank you, Amy, for allowing us to keep the memories of these family pieces but in a more updated way!

We have asked Amy to do several unique and custom projects for us, and all have been beyond our expectations. She has done both modifications to existing pieces ( a framing project) as well as building a piece of furniture (a stereo cabinet) from scratch. In the case of the framing project, it involved a family heirloom, and Amy’s artistic talents brought out the perfect accents to the tapestry. We would not hesitate to ask Amy to do future projects.
