Preserving your history

Our services

Restoration Philosophy


Anything from nicks, scratches, gouges, water marks and other blemishes, and damage to all types of wood furniture. Sometimes, a touch-up is all you need.



Matching or duplicating almost any finish, so you have many color options in most cases.  We’re also specialists in custom painted finishes, blending our own paints and stains.

We have an unwavering philosophy of caring for furniture.

We believe and understand all antiques are important and have great sentimental value. So, when they’re looking a little sickly, our philosophy is to never let them perish. We work to revive—don’t replace—by breathing new life into worn down furniture pieces.

Strong gentle hands are the perfect combination to help make your forgotten furniture unforgettable. Our team of experienced, qualified, skilled furniture restorers has been working many years restoring and refinishing high quality interior furnishings--both new and old, large and small. 

One of the reason I started  this business was to provide affordable design in order to bring families together in environments that are based on roots, traditions, history, heritage and so many more foundational values that families need today more than ever.  Restored Designs was built on this concept of taking everything traditional and making it new again, at a cost that won't hurt, while honoring those people and things who came before us.

I have been a designer since 1987, and have specialized in residential interior design, decor items, furniture restoration and construction for most of my career.  This journey has taken me from Southern California, Texas, and now Iowa where I currently live with my family.  Whether you need help with something as overwhelming as building a new home or something as small as how to decorate a room using what you already have, I am well diversified in providing full service design.  Some oft his things may include concept coordination, floor plan analysis, expert in color, furniture, accessories, custom cabinet refinishing, and my newest restored passion -- shabby chic, refurbished, reclaimed and reused items.
