While updating and refinishing an old desk that would be taken to university by her daughter Kailey, Ms. Doogan found enjoyment in the creativity and labour provided by the project. This kick-started the idea of creating a reclaimed furniture business.
Ms. Doogan then discovered that St. Lawrence College offered a Self Employment Assistance Program, and there was no looking back.
With a love for beautiful, unique furniture and home décor, Ms. Doogan was able to mix in her creative talents – and so Red Wind Studio was born.
“I am passionate about my family and my work”, said Ms. Doogan. “I love being creative and sharing my talents with others through my work”.
Red Wind Studio features reclaimed furniture and items that are repurposed to give them new life and to provide one of a kind and unique pieces. Other services also include basic refinishing of small furniture or restyling an item by way of hand painting or simply updating.
Some examples of her work include:
Reclaimed windows become photo frames and chalkboards
Old picture frames and mirrors come to life as they are updated to match your décor
Working out of her home shop in Cornwall, Ms. Doogan provides quotes on refinishing or restyling individual pieces (by appointment only). Pieces that are for sale in her online shop can be viewed at www.RedWindStudio.ca
