Welcome to Paint & Distress!

Interior decorating is a reflection of personality, creativity and distinctive style. It's a form in which people can truly express themselves, and being part of these expressions is a passion of ours! We believe that everyone has the ability to create a one of a kind design concept, so let us be a part of your vision with our timeless furniture and home decor.


Ottawa Home and Remodelling Show 2019

Once again we were invited to participate in the Refreshed Furniture Pop Up at the Home Show. It was another great weekend! We had so much fun meeting everyone who stopped by the booth, and catching up with the other local furniture artists. The highlight of the show had to be our spotlight on CTV news, it was such an incredible opportunity to promote both ourselves and the show!


We're Moving!

We've got some exciting news! We are relocating to our main workshop in South Mountain, which is an 1870's church - talk about character! Having the store in Merrickville has been a fantastic experience but we do hope you will love the chance to see us in action and not just behind a desk! We will still have pieces available for sale which will be listed here on the website and available for viewings by appointment until further notice. The custom refinishing side of the business has really taken off so the move will allow us to really focus on this! 

We want to thank everyone who made our time here in Merrickville so successful - it has been an amazing few years! We are so happy about this next chapter and can't wait to show you all some sneak peeks of the new space - so stay tuned! 


It was another amazing weekend at the Ottawa Home and Remodelling Show, where we took part in the Refreshed Furniture Pop-Up for the second year. We got to talk to so many lovely people, and got to meet and catch up with other furniture artists in the area. There were so many beautiful pieces to be seen, it's so inspiring to see the talent and passion out there!! Can't wait for next year!!

Words can not express how excited and honoured we are to be part of the newly renovated Canadian Science and Technology Museum! Check out these pictures of our up-cycled display located within the "Technology in Our Lives" exhibition. Here were are showcasing before and after pieces using fantastic vintage and antique furniture that are refreshed in a variety of chalk paints including Annie Sloan! Truly an amazing experience, we are beyond thrilled!!



We were so happy to be able to participate again at the 5th Annual Refreshed Furniture Pop Up Shop, hosted by Katrina from Malenka Originals. We lucked out with some absolutely amazing October weather and we had a ton of fun interacting with the other artists and of course everyone who came by!! The day was a huge success so thank you all!!

Summer is just around the corner and that means its time to start enjoying your outdoor spaces again!! We've got old chairs, wagons, tables baskets, signs and more that will make lovely additions to your garden or porch decor!! This year, bring the indoors out and treat yourself to an outdoor oasis that is a true reflection of your personal style!!
