• What is the process of booking my item with you? Once you’ve checked everything out and feel like we’d be a good match and it would fit into your budget, you can contact me through the contact form and submit photos of your item(s) and your inspiration via photos or verbally what you’d love to see in your item. Feel free to get inspiration from Pinterest if you’d like. I love to know what your vision and inspiration is so I can better understand just what you’d like so you can have the happiest, dreamiest item!
  • What steps do you take and products do you use to refinish my item? Here at Dani’s Vintage Designs we have a tried and true system. My sanding assistant since 2015 will sand down the item first, no matter what condition the item is in, to make it as smooth as possible and remove any blemishes/crustiness as well as excellent paint adhesion. We will then use wood filler to fill in any damages and make it look as brand spanking new as possible! Then we will use a primer to block any stain bleed as well as with paint adhesion, followed with high quality BB Frosch chalk paint powder mixed with any latex paint color you’d like out there, then seal with a few coats of durable clear poly. 
  • Are your items durable? Yes they are! You do need to take care of your items and protect them though. Harsh banging and knocking (kids, haha) will weather down and mark up your items. That’s just reality with all furniture – painted by us or a painted look from a store. We do the best we can so that your items will be as durable as possible, but we expect customers to know that to keep items looking great, it’s best to be gentle! All items come with touch up paint and products that were used so you can touch up later just in case.
  • How do I book in and make it offical? Once we’ve spoken and I’ve gotten your look pinned down and your quote to you, I require 50% down of the final amount to book in and mark your spot in the calendar. Once your item is done and you’ve been notified, payment is required immediately. The remainder is due + 11% taxes at that time.
  • What’s the turnaround time like? Depending on the item and how large it is, usually 1-3 weeks. Items must be picked up within one week of notified completion. Items stored after the 1 week mark will be charged $25/day storage fee and item not released until the storage fees paid.
  • What payment types do you accept? Credit card and e-transfer
  • Do you offer pickup and delivery? Yes we can! We charge $50 per trip to front entrance or garage. If you’re requiring someone to go upstairs/downstairs/apartment buildings without elevators, delivery can be arranged with a professional moving company at the customer’s expense.

  • Do you completely restore and strip/stain an item? We are mostly painted looks around here but we do appreciate some wood with paint looks! What we can offer is a stripped wood and painted combo – think stripped top, drawer fronts, handles (only if the item is solid wood) with a painted shell. If we’re working with veneer we cannot guarantee a look, therefore only work with solid wood.
