Toni Duncan reupholstered my out door furniture and did a beautiful job. She had put zippers in each piece which was not there before. What a useful idea. She made them truly come to life and I had had them for probably over 10 yrs. I would have gone out and bought a new set but couldn’t find a... More...

My experience with Toni is that she is on time and on budget. The projects she has done for my new home started with hemming and shortening custom drapes that I brought from a prior home. They fit perfectly after she shortened them. She even took the scrap material and made tiebacks.

Next, she o...

Toni made valences from two panels of hand woven African fabric. The fabric presented challenges and Toni figured out how to make it work with absolutely gorgeous results!

I am so glad Toni Duncan was referred to me. She came to my home and listened
to what I had envisioned for window treatments. I did not want to sort through 100's of
fabric and entrusted her to pick the fabric color and design that she thought would look best in my home. She came.back with 4 ...
