Meet Jane and find out why Paint is her PASSION !

Welcome to my website.  Behind the Painted Door is focused on providing high-quality service and customer satisfaction.  My passion is paint!  There's something extremely satisfying about restoring an old piece of furniture to even more than its former glory!  I want YOU to participate, either by purchasing one of my beautiful pieces, or by learning to work the magic yourself.

We use Fusion Mineral Based Furniture Paint from Homestead House Paint Co., a Canadian family-owned business.

Behind the Painted Door offers workshops that are fun, challenging and creative.  We're sure you'll be happy working with us. Browse our website for inspiration, and contact us with any comments or questions.  We love to hear from you!

Fusion Paint is an environmentally conscious formulation, low VOC’s, superior durability, easy one-step self-levelling application and significantly improved adhesion and strength. Delivering an exceptional satin/matte finish, this 100% acrylic paint requires minimal prep and no top coat!

Are you falling in love with Fusion paint?  If not, you soon will be.  This paint is amazing and unique.  It doesn't require a top coat, but there are tricks to learn about prepping your piece, and about distressing and finishing.  Our workshops are fun and informative.  They are limited to just a few people so that each participant gets lots of attention and plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

Custom Orders

Do you have a piece of furniture, a vase, a picture frame, a clock, a vintage artifact that you want to rethink, renew, and recreate?  Are you a bit reluctant to tackle the job yourself?  Bring it in, or bring in a photo of the piece if it is large, with dimensions and material it is fashioned from, and we'll give you an estimate
