We were so excited to see our store featured on the pages of Poppytalk, an amazing Canadian design blog seeking inspiration and fresh ideas from all across the country. This blog is definitely worth checking out, but a quick word of caution: You may be compelled to lose track of time as you scroll through pages and pages of beautiful images, posts and design ideas!! Enjoy, and thanks again Poppytalk (and guest blogger Trudi of Double Happiness Designs).


Seaside bathroom bliss! Beautiful custom finish on a claw foot tub and antique bureau, converted into a bathroom vanity.


Another exciting and dreamy project from the South Shore series! After being asked to create a custom floor in one of the bedrooms, once again we looked to the sea for inspiration. Drawing from previously used paint colours in the home, we designed a pattern based loosely around a compass rose and then went to town on the floor! Layer after layer of distressing, paint and glaze resulted in this breathtaking and unique floor feature, yet another stunning component to this elegant seaside home.


At henhouse we specialize in custom furniture, which means we can build you practically anything! That being said, deciding on a custom piece of furniture can be SUCH AN OVERWHELMING TASK!! It is quite a challenge to imagine what you want your piece of furniture to look like, deciding on the features and function of your piece, the dimensions, the hardware…

For this purpose, we have created two standard furniture lines, the South Shore and Oxford collection. You can order directly from the catalog or use the designs and dimensions as a jumping off point for creating the ultimate custom piece of furniture. While we have provided set dimensions and features in these catalogs, they are not set in stone and we can accommodate any space or specifications. In other words, think of our designs as a blank colouring sheet that you get to fill it in.

We would like to show you what our process looks like: The first step is to select your piece of furniture. One particular customer chose the South Shore Sleigh bed (SSSB) with a low footboard and made out of solid pine. They then selected the colour and style of finish, a green hue with a heavy handed antiqued look (we also have samples in our store that you can choose from). Presto! After a few weeks of building and finishing, the end result is a one of a kind, unique and long lasting piece of furniture finished to blend in perfectly with the rest of your decor. How neat is that?!
