High Quality Furniture Refinishing for Clients

Jean was able to transform a high-end media cabinet needing a refresh recently for one of my clients. Her process for the design meeting, color selection (which beautifully tied to our new room design) and professionalism were top-notch. Any time one of my clients need furniture refinishing, I don't hesitate to refer Jean. Her eye for detail and finished products are excellent, and I'm thrilled to have her as a resource!

Love my "new" furniture!

First of all, I love Jean's business. Giving new life to old furniture is a critical and needed service with our landfills overflowing. Also, my furniture has sentimental value and for both environmental and sentimental reasons, I hated the thought of getting rid of my wood furniture, but it no longer suited my taste or my decor. Enter Jean, to the rescue! Our furniture looks fresh and new and now goes beautifully with my new decor. She did a great job and was easy to work with!

Amazing Furniture Transformations!

Jean is an artistic furniture painter who can take a cherished piece and customize to your current decorating preferences. She has done several pieces for me and took the time to explore all possibilities in keeping with my decorating style. She uses premium finishes and professional processes.

Paint Color Help!

We just used Jean for a kitchen project. There are so many color choices - it can be overwhelming. Jean came in and assessed the room, our lighting and color scheme in the surrounding rooms. She helped match cabinet colors to our granite and help pick out wall color. She came armed with large swatches of different paint and even went out of her way to obtain swatches from our painter's preferred brand. I feel confident going into the project now. Highly recommend!

Cedar Chest Transformation

My husband grew up putting his toys in this old, painted cedar chest. I refinished it about 15 years ago which I thought was an improvement. However, as time went on, I have been on a mission to let this piece go, but my husband just couldn’t give it up. I had seen some of Jean’s furniture transformations while scrolling through Facebook and decided it wouldn’t hurt to give her a call to find out if she might be interested in this project. I am so glad I did! Jean took an old family cedar chest that I considered an eyesore and turned it into a beautiful, functional piece of furniture. Jean helped us choose a paint color that would complement our decor. She even added some extra touches like decorative moulding along the front, handles on the sides, and feet to raise the chest off of the floor. Thank you, Jean, for your vision and creativity. We love it!

From Consultation....To Transformation!

Working with Jean has been transformative. I don't make this statement lightly. After three major "home transitions," spanning a 10-year timeframe, I now have a wealth of experiences upon which to draw.

What I assumed would be a 4-week engagement has evolved into relying on Jean as my "go to" resource, as I've transitioned into two new "temporary" homes, and ultimately, my current, "permanent" home.

In the last couple of years, I've become more excited (and impressed) than ever, as I've been able to increasingly capitalize on Jean's greatest gifts....her unique interior design sensibilities, coupled with her incredible talent and creativity (and resourcefulness) in re-purposing pieces of furniture and other objects, and creating "new" and distinctly beautiful works of art (any question, check out her "before" and "after" photos!).

Jean is extremely versatile and flexible in accommodating different styles and preferences....she does not project her own views as to how a space should look or function; instead, she asks the right questions, listens intently, and helps you create your own vision, which she then, collaboratively and in a spirit of true partnership, works diligently and masterfully to translate into a new -- and transformative -- reality.

I literally NEVER write reviews....this time, however, I feel compelled. Jean is simply the best. Ever. Find out for yourself. You'll see what I mean....

Master Bath Transformation

Watching Jean Kidd convert the boredom of my Master bath walls, windows, colors, and overall design has brought me so much happiness. I admit – I did not previously enjoy my Master bath at all, and I actually hesitated calling Jean. I felt slightly embarrassed for her to even see it. Now, I invite my friends to see it. And without fail, they have asked who Jean Kidd is; they want her contact info (
Jean has a marvelous sense of color and knows precisely the ways of making colors come together on walls, cabinetry and other woodwork – perhaps colors I would never have considered before! And she included me in this entire process, continually encouraging me to express what I really liked. Jean helped lead me into a whole new direction! Her eye for patterns and textures truly opened my eyes to the possibilities.
Aside from all the lessons Jean taught me during this transformation (e.g., putting in blinds with patience, how to place the perfect painting, or how to save a 30-year old bathroom mirror with gorgeous framing selections) – she found a small cabinet suitable for my space constraints. She transformed it with a unique custom design using special techniques and colors that coordinate perfectly with my new wall color. I honestly did not even recognize it when she delivered the finished product. I now love it as a feature piece of the room!
The face-lift in my Master bath is absolutely remarkable, and I recommend the talented Jean Kidd for any home redesign project you might consider! She never laughs at what you “thought” you wanted, but invites you to look a little deeper just to make sure that you know what you really would cherish.

Thanks Jean!

As I was nearing the completion of a recent addition to my home, I became overwhelmed with decisions regarding tile and paint colors. Having Jean Kidd help me sort out new options was invaluable in moving the project forward. She had tile shop suggestions as well that she visited with me. Jean helped me understand the confusing subject of color undertones and came armed with large paint samples - which was awesome - that I could review on my walls during various times of the day. It was also great to be able to get a second opinion on design decisions I'd previously made on my own before they were fully implemented. What I may have liked most was the confidence she gave me in making decisions and suggesting that instead of painting samples on the wall, that I paint them on poster board so I can move them around the room to see different lighting.

Highly recommended - Paint colors

We worked with Jean to figure out new colors for our home. She was wonderful and very patient with all my questions. She helped choose beautiful, warm, soothing colors for the whole house. She taught me about matching undertones and the right way to choose wall colors. I really needed the paint education that Jean gave me. Many, many thanks to Jean! I plan to have her back in the house for helping in a redesign so that we can showcase the beautiful local treasures we have collected from our travels.

Living Room/Dining Room makeover

Jean Kidd did an amazing job of bringing a vision to my home that I just couldn't picture. She brought in colors and textures that I would never have considered as well as guiding me to my rugs and coffee table that I could not love more. Highly recommended!

Bedroom Redesign

I was panicking with out of town guests coming to visit and bare windows in the bedrooms. In her calm manner Jean helped me decide what window treatments to use and finished them just in time for the visit. She was even able to match my wall color perfectly in one bedroom. Why didn’t I call her sooner? She has the experience and expertise to help you make design decisions for your home. She also makes the process fun!

Staging Challenge - She's Up To It!

I used Jean Kidd ReDesign to stage my elderly mother's home prior to putting it on the market when I needed to settle the estate. The home had been loving cared for for 60 years, and all furniture had been in place that long! Amazingly, Jean recommended color updates, extreme furniture editing, and used selected pieces from my mother's things to best show the home's features and potential. I'm convinced that the expert staging resulted in attracting the right buyer in a reduced timeframe compared to other homes on the market in that price range and location.

5 star review

I have used Jean Kidd ReDesign for numerous projects and have been extremely satisfied with all of the projects. Some of them include decorating my guest room (custom made draperies, shams, and accessories), and assistance with the grueling task of paint selection in coordination with lighting options. I have referred Jean Kidd ReDesign to many friends and family members for various projects such as window treatment customization and selection of furniture to coordinate with existing pieces. They have all been pleased with the final outcome. Jean Kidd is a talented perfectionist with a vision for the needs of her clients. I encourage meeting with her for a consultation and feel certain that you will choose to work with her on your specific projects.

Jean’s The Best!

I needed a fresh new look for most of the rooms in our home. Jean worked with me to determine what was important for us to keep. Then helped us select new items to update each room in accordance with our style & budget. She helped turn tired looking rooms into vibrant spaces we love. I recommend Jeans to everyone!

Professional Extraordinaire

Jean's keen eye for design was of immeasurable help during a recent renovation. She helped with paint selection, artwork placement and furniture arrangements. Jean is a great listener and strives to create an outcome based on the client's vision. She is patient and has a fun sense of humor that makes working with her a sheer delight! I love my renovation and so appreciate Jean's help!

Paint Color Help

We contacted Jean to help us with our living room, dining room, stairway, and upstairs hallway redesign. These areas have varying light conditions that made choosing colors very tricky. I painted my dining room three different colors before I gave up and called Jean. Jean clearly has a lot of experience with design. She guided us through her process for selecting colors. She ended up recommending two colors that both looked great. After trying some samples, she returned to help us make the final selection. Overall, we were very happy working with Jean. She was very professional and a pleasure to work with. Most importantly, the redesign and wall color looks great.

Friendly and Knowledgeable!

It's hard to say what I like best about working with Jean, but "friendly" and "knowledgeable" immediately come to mind. Unlike other designers who might want to just sell you products, she is truly interested in learning what will fit perfectly with our budget and lifestyle. She's also a master at problem solving!
