Remaker – Beautiful Furniture Makeovers creates a stylish new look for our client’s interiors by providing a service of re-finishing old furniture.  From our busy workshop in Diep River, we serve homemakers primarily in the Cape Peninsula area.


Our purpose is refurbishing furniture and relationships.

People have relationships with furniture. Some furniture is a sentimental heirloom from a loving Granny. Some furniture reminds you of your honeymoon or a time it when it was bought. Furniture, like people, can be renewed, transformed and repurposed, resulting in a unique, valuable, useful and beautiful creation.


Our values include transparency and detailed communication in our goal to give you a product in which you will be delighted.


We hand paint in French & Swedish antique styles; provide custom timber finishes; gilding & silver leafing finishes. We also do spray-painting and roller-painting to give your furniture a fresh new look with a smooth, contemporary finish.


Repurposing your long-standing furniture is often the best way to go when the need to redecorate arises. Adding a new dimension to a sentimental, long-loved piece brings a sense of pride and joy. Refurbishing your older furniture instead of buying new, is not only economical and good for the environment but is a wonderful creative outlet too, especially in the current times.


Our furniture makeovers include repairing of furniture, sourcing and fitting of new handles and re-upholstery services. We further offer interior design collaboration.

How We Work

We provide a cost estimate based on photos sent to us.

Upon a meeting or via telephone / email, we will discuss the service to be rendered, the final finish and showing options with related costings.

A quote is offered after we see the furniture to be serviced and the final finish is selected.

We require a 70% deposit and the balance due before delivery.

We invite you to view the furniture items before we begin sealing them. Thereafter, the newly remade furniture is transported back to you.

Our vast experience in furniture makeovers can be viewed below:
