Who I am: I am Stacy the owner and the creative force behind Refabulous.
What I do: I take old, quality built furniture pieces and breathe new life into them through repurposing, repainting, renewing, restoring, rebuilding, to make them Refabulous. I paint by hand using a variety of painting mediums and techniques to achieve the final results. I have been re-loving furniture since I can remember, as this interest and passion was inherited from my mom.
Where I am: 3738 Main Street, Jordan Ontario
When I’m there: Feel free to contact me. Currently open Saturdays and some Sundays. Appointments are welcome!
How I do this: I find and purchase furnishings that I make Refabulous. I am often able to support local charitable organizations through my findings.
Why I do this: Because I love quality built vintage furniture. I am drawn to the craftsmanship, the integrity, the time, passion and skill behind the pieces. I believe that these pieces need to live in homes that love them. Art should not just hang on your walls, it should be reflected in the furnishings that surround you. I believe that old pieces have a soul, just like this relic of a building. I am sure the stories would mesmerize if they could only speak. The journey of Refabulous is only possible through the ultimate Refabulous project – the 1831 stone building that houses my art. It was love at first sight. One must go through the past to get to the future…..
I believe in authenticity. I believe that you are what you support or create. I am incredibly lucky to be given this opportunity (and challenge) to make my passion my everyday reality. Like most great stories, I’m not sure how it’s going to turn out. It has been one of the most difficult ventures I’ve delved into however there is no growth without pain and hardship. All I know is that I believe and abide by the words of Winston Churchill: “continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential”.
