We had 2 pieces of furniture that were refinished to look more modern. Lauren at MegMade was VERY responsive to me throughout the entire process. I couldn't decide on a color and she was patient with me and shared as many samples that I asked for. She also helped me choose new hardware for both pieces of furniture which aided in the whole transformation. The delivery process was very professional at both pick up and drop off. I am very happy with my 'new' furniture and will definitely be working with MegMade in the future. Thank you MegMade!! More...

Meg and her team know how to create one-of-a-kind pieces that are both modern (color and finish) and classic (aka real, solid furniture). They have an incredible eye for detail, texture and quality. No big box store generic stuff here.I'd highly encourage a trip to this store -- you never know what you're going to find. More...

I am a licensed real estate broker and have referred Clare to clients for her extraordinary sales and staging skills when I am not available. This review is for a single-family home that needed her vision and her sales skills to lead the transformation of this rather plain house into an exciting, trendy home. She knows what the buying public wants and then gives it to them. She's a natural seller with a great design sense. You get two professionals in one when you hire Clare. More...

My wife and I hired Clare Spartz to help us sell our condo. She was fantastic! We met with her early on in the process to tour our home. Clare gave us respectful but frank advice and (wisely) encouraged us to remove clutter and furniture that didn’t make our condo look its best. Clare then partially staged the condo with pieces of furniture and accessories which made the space bright, open, and beautiful. This drew potential buyers to our condo and helped it outshine other similar units in the neighborhood which were also on the market. When we did get an offer, Clare offered sound advice and wise recommendations to secure the best terms possible, and saw the transaction through to the end. We have every intention of working with her again in the future and would recommend her without qualification. More...

Clare is better than the best. I am confident that our condo would not have sold without the beautiful staging and Clare's vision. When we considered listing we were nervous. Our condo was in a building with all renters and another more desirable unit was going to hit the market at the same time. Clare took one look at our condo and had a vision of how beautiful it could be. That vision gave us a contract for more than listing price in ONE DAY and the other unit that went for sale never sold, even after dropping the price below our original listing. The other unit was slightly larger and had a view of the city. The difference between the two listings was CLARE! Staging sold our condo and we could not be happier.
Five stars is not enough for the experience we had.

If you want a fabulous answer to the question:  "Where can I find a unique piece of furniture?", MegMade is your answer.  My husband and I just purchased a combination bar cart/cabinet.  It was in their showroom, already conditioned.  In essence, these folks take beautiful, vintage pieces and make them more beautiful.  You can purchase something from their showroom or pick something that hasn't yet been conditioned and have it custom-painted, laminated, or repaired, as needed.  Lauren was a pleasure to work with and everything was done efficiently.  Highly recommended!

Clare is awesome and her staging skill sells homes!. Clare is a Realtor, but also does staging. Ordinarily, she does not do staging for other agents, however, she did it as a special favor for my seller and me. The home was totally transformed and I am confident it would still be on the market without her assistance. The furnishings she provided were lovely and well coordinated. I would recommend her for any home in need of some sophisticated styling and especially vacant homes begging for great furnishings! More...

Clare was so amazing in helping me purchase a house and selling my house.
Clare and her team made my home so warm and inviting with the updates and staging that we were quickly able to sell

I will highly recommend her and will be using her in the future.

Clare was recommended to us when we sold our condo in the city (UK Village / Humboldt Park neighborhood). She was amazing to work with! At our initial meeting, she presented information about our market and options for selling, while also having an amazing demeanor! She took such personal steps to maximize the appeal of our place. We already liked our condo, but she really helped us fall in love with it again, as well as detailing how she could help potential buyers fall in love with it, as well. Clare did a great job staging our home, and even provided pieces from her personal collection to help with the process. Overall, she was an absolute pleasure to work with and we couldn't recommend her enough!! More...

Clare was with me through some truly big life transitions. After my children had all left home, her expert advice and discerning eye assured that I got the top price when selling my home in the suburbs. She joined me in my adventure into the city and helped me find the perfect condominium to rent for my trial run. She made sure I didn't compromise. When I was positive that I'd found the perfect neighborhood, she dropped everything to help me find the perfect home to purchase. More...

Clare did an incredible job staging and selling my beautiful downtown Chicago loft in record time! And for a record sale price! Her vision for updating and maximizing my space made all the difference. Clare did all the heavy lifting of the planning and organizing while I frantically decluttered my 20 years accumulation of ‘stuff’. With 150+ people coming through in less than 3 days and 10+ offers (and I wasn’t even in town!), I couldn’t have been happier! More...

I did not have an appt to tour Clare's listing, in fact she was on her way out to another appt, I asked if I could see the home, she graciously invited me in & allowed me to take my time to tour the property. She was not only knowledgeable about the property but also about the neighborhood. Clare's staging of the home spotlighted the home's layout that appealed to me. Her attention to detail increased natural light with updated finishes all while staying neutral for a broad appeal. More...

When we showed Clare our house, she was very excited by it's potential because the market was very hot in our neighborhood. She went through the house and made a list of improvements to make. She showed us the local comps and told us we could sell for much more than we expected if we fix it up first. We made the recommended repairs and she staged the house beautifully. We put the house on the market at the high end of her recommendation. In the end, the house was sold in less than a month at just slightly below our asking price! I don't think we would have made nearly as much off our sale if it wasn't for Clare. More...

Refinished a dresser to its natural wood state, and it’s absolutely stunning!! I live out of state so it was a little nerve racking not to see the dresser in person ever, but they did a fantastic job!!

Visited Megmade with my daughters yesterday. We loved the colorful, beautifully transformed pieces of furniture. Definitely a place to visit over and over again since pieces are added weekly, if not daily!

My husband and I drove down from the northern suburbs to look at a dresser I saw on the website. We ended up purchasing the dresser and we love it- it's beautiful! Meg helped us while we were there and was so helpful and nice! She even colored with our one year old while we looked around the shop. A great small business that makes does beautiful work. More...

I'm SO happy with our new Sideboard for our dining room. Meg and her team were so helpful with the whole process of finding the right piece to selecting the right finish and colors. The piece was beautifully refinished and the delivery was prompt and professional. Now, I don't think I can get furniture anywhere else! More...

We worked with Megmade for a one of a kind changing table/dresser. Not only very easy to do via email, extremely quick finishing time! We love it (opted to pick up, but they will ship)! Not an issue for us, but might be for some people: colors come across different digitally than they are in person. If designing a piece specifically via email/pics, keep this in mind. At any rate, Megmade won't disappoint! More...

We just got our Drexel buffet refurbished piece delivered and we couldn't be more thrilled. I don't think I've ever loved a piece of furniture like I love this piece. Can't express just how wonderful the whole experience was. Highly recommend them. Local, family-owned shop that ships within the US. Amazing craftsmanship and the prices are crazy good. You'll pay more for cheaply made furniture at Crate and Barrel type stores (and they don't have unique, one-of-a-kind pieces like Megmade). We will cherish it forever and we will be only buying furniture from them from now on. More...

Love the creativity of MegMade. They have pieces that you can't find anywhere else.
Quality is always on point as well. Best of all they seemed to run a business based on integrity. They showed me how they pick their furniture and I even got to see the operations side of things and I was blown away. I like to know who I am buying from and they were more than patient in answering all my questions. Truly a GEM in the Chicago area. More...

So my review is going to have a little Lemony Snicket touch to it. Fortunately, upon our first visit to MegMade's vast showroom, we found two wonderful pieces of furniture to furnish our new condo. One was a shabby chic buffet cabinet for our upstairs hallway that we wanted to buy "as is" (meaning we liked the rough old finish on it and didn't want to change it). The second was a small vanity desk that was going to be painted white. It was a little short for the vanity chair that I already owned, so Shelby suggested that we add casters to the slender legs to make it taller. Great idea!
Unfortunately, when they added the casters, those slender little wood legs started to split at the bottom shortly after delivery. Fortunately, they agreed to take it back to their shop and try and fix it over the holidays. Unfortunately, the fix was not successful, and we weren't able to arrive at another solution that I was happy with, and I had to return the desk. The wooden legs were ultimately compromised by the caster holes, and it's a tricky area to restore, never able to regain their original stability. Joanna & Shelby were very polite and helpful through the whole process, albeit sometimes slow to respond to my phone messages, and they ended up issuing me a refund and an apology that the desk didn't work out like I had hoped.
In hindsight, the only thing they could've done better was communicate a little more with me when the desk went back to their shop - I was expecting to have some say in what they did to the legs to fix them, but the next call I received was to inform me that the repair was done & to schedule the re-delivery.
MegMade has a great business model, and I love the fact that she's rescuing furniture that would've normally ended up in a landfill. There's a lot of quirky & unique pieces to choose from, so I would go back & shop there again, but my experience with this little desk was a little disappointing. (Because this whole process started in early November and I was tired of not having this room done, I ended up just buying a "Made in China" piece at Home Goods last weekend. Not very original, but at least it's done!)

MegMade did an amazing job painting our daughter's bedroom furniture. We are thrilled with the results. The furniture was mine from childhood, and they made an old set new again. The pieces are white and are simply beautiful. My 9 year old daughter initially wanted brand new furniture when we moved, but she's now in love with what she has. Thanks MegMade! More...

I noticed the sign for Megmade while passing by and decided to stop in today. It was a great little spot for refurbished vintage furniture, and a welcome oasis in the midst of the otherwise corporate wasteland that this stretch of North Elston has unfortunately become.

My husband brought me by the showroom today, and I was blown away. What a wonderful place, and what a surprising and fabulous concept! We met Lauren, who was very helpful and pleasant, and toured their warehouse of beautiful vintage furniture waiting to be re-made. The workmanship is as fine as you could hope for and the color choices and details are exciting and perfectly on-trend. I cannot wait to have some of our favorite pieces MegMade!! More...

Very happy new owners of our first MegMade piece. Fell in love with it as soon as we saw it on the showroom floor. Shelby was a huge help during our visit. Delivery could not have been smoother. Izzy and Terry were in touch as soon as they were in en route and had the piece sitting in our apartment in no time (and were nice enough to lend a hand to a neighbor who was moving out). Great guys!

We love love love Meg & MegMade! Meg first designed a chest of drawers from their warehouse - navy with awesome gold accents - for our Master Bedroom. So classic! Meg helped with the custom paint colors/design work.... and helped us find the right piece for our unique space and needs. We also used a hand-me-down dresser that we had that was slightly worn, but solid wood, for my daughter's bedroom. MegMade used a magic wand to make it a dreamy, light pink with EXTRA shine...just what every little girl would want!Finally, my friend gifted us with a romantic, white painted mirror from MegMade for our dining/living room area. It's beautiful and works perfectly with the gold/white/grey color scheme. We absolutely will recommend MegMade over and over ...I have recommended them to so many friends and will continue to do so....and I can't wait to get my next piece! More...

If you are thinking about using MegMade, I highly recommend you do it! The service is wonderful. I worked with Shelby and she was most helpful. My sideboard needed a good deal of sanding due to its prior finish. It looks fantastic! I couldn't be happier. MegMade has a good number of paint colors but I chose my own and it didn't slow down the process at all. The delivery service was on time, polite and helpful. More...

Absolutely love MegMade. This is my second purchase and so happy with it. I bought a dresser to double as a changing table for my newborn. It's a stunning piece that she will be able to grow into! The amount of drawers is so helpful for all the items a baby needs. The changing table pad fits on top of the dresser perfectly and overall this is a much better use of money than buying an changing table that can only be used for a short time. We live in the area so delivery was a breeze. Meg was super helpful throughout the whole process of buying the furniture. Will definitely continue to buy furniture from MegMade. Great quality product and great customer service. More...

I gotta be honest the first experience with Megmade was amazing. We bought a French oversized dresser (9ft wide) which they provided a 5 star delivery service to the fourth floor of our town home. As a satisfied customers we went back to give them repeat business this time having a piece refinished we already own and have some night stands they have in the customize section of their show room. Several Facebook messages, voice mails and email over last few weeks can't get anyone to call me back. If I'm giving them my business I shouldn't have to chase them down. If it wasn't for the amazing quality on the first transaction I'd rate them less than 4 stars. I'd recommend only going through them for a finished piece trying to get anything custom down isn't worth chasing them down. More...

I recently visited Megmade in Chicago for what I thought was a quick visit. I had no idea what awaited me! Their showroom exhibits gorgeous furniture, beautiful pillows and jewelry, and a furniture closet that would make any DIY pro green with envy. I do not let myself get carried away with pretty things though; customer service is what counts most. MegMade has that down packed! They were kind, helpful, extremely knowledgeable and all around great people. I went in to purchase One-Step paint by Amy Howard and walked out with plans to return for a lot more. Thanks Meg!!

As an interior designer, I consider MegMade a staple in both my design projects, and my personal home. I currently own 4 pieces in my home, and continue to look for other nooks and crannies where I can fill with a new pieces. I have used MegMade on more projects than I can count, and each time the client's are satisfied and thrilled with their unique pieces.  The vintage furniture is made to last, and the creative use of colors and customizable options are endless, making the process so unique and more more fun than "regular" furniture shopping.  I have been shopping with Meg & Joe since they first opened on Montrose, and it's been a joy to watch them grow & make so many happy with their lovely furniture.

Working with Meg was an absolute pleasure! I emailed her that I might arrive close to closing time, and she kept the showroom open for me as we went through every piece trying to find the perfect size / shape dresser for my apartment. Eventually we found exactly what I was looking for! When the dresser was delivered and I realized a couple of the nails were coming undone, she personally came out to my apartment at a time convenient to me in order to fix it! I love my dresser and hope to be a repeat customer as soon as I have a bigger apartment :) More...

My wife and I have 4 pieces from MegMade, and they are all great. One of them was a piece of her grandmothers that we brought in to have refinished, and they did a fantastic job and turned it around faster than they originally said they would. They are very collaborative in helping you decide how to redo a piece of furniture, offering advice while also listening to your ideas. Their delivery people have been great too - very careful but also very quick. Will definitely be back for more. More...

I. Love. This. Place. There is hardly more to say, but I will say more! I was thrilled to be introduced to MegMade in November and now I'm completely addicted even though I don't need additional furniture after buying a bureau for my master bedroom and dining room set. All mid-century.I met Meg but mostly worked with Shelby who is a delight. I loved how I was able to wander through the items that had yet to be refinished to find the pieces that were right for my home. I snatched up a dining room set just after they had posted it online. Lucky me that I was there at the right time!The pieces were delivered yesterday and they are GORGEOUS! I'm tickled to have pieces that are custom for me and my personality, including a hot pink interior in my beautiful bedroom bureau. In addition, they sent a lovely flower arrangement with a hand-written note with my pieces. You'll never find these kind of pieces or get that kind of service in a big-box store.I'm going to think hard of another reason to bring another MegMade piece into my new home! More...

This place is awesome!  There are beautiful pieces of furniture to choose from that you can have painted or stained to your liking.  They are very helpful in assisting you in choosing a piece that matches your style.  My order was ready much faster than I anticipated.  Delivery was swift and efficient.  I will definitely be back for more pieces!

Overall I had a positive experience with Meg Made. I was looking for something custom and stumbled upon this place online. I came in to see Meg in person who was very nice. We talked about exactly what I wanted done with my dresser and we agreed upon an approximate time for delivery. I also said I really wanted a few extra days for the piece to sit out so that it doesn't have any kind of fumes of paint smells. Upon the time of arrival, the dresser I ordered looked nice but it came with a few imperfections and the hardware gold color wasn't exactly what I wanted but here's what Meg did right away to make things right. Everyone makes mistakes, no one is perfect, but she made things right and perfect. She had her delivery guys take the piece back and had a much better product delivered a few days later. It looks stunning, just what i had envisioned in my head, I don't mind at all that it wasn't perfect the first time around. What I like is their business approach that if something isn't quite right or perfect, she will make it perfect.I only do wish they didn't rush it the second time as it did have a little bit of a paint smell that I'm not fond of but it may not bother most people as I'm just very sensitive to smells. What's also nice is that if you share whatever piece you order with Meg, she will send you a gift card for $25 to use as a thank you for giving her business.I do plan on working with Meg in the future as I like that she acknowledges when she makes a mistake and makes things right. In this day and age when there are so many businesses out there, I really want to work with people, not who are perfect, but ones who work to make things perfect and understand what you are looking for. My dresser is standing, although a little smelly still from the paint, but it's beautiful and looks very elegant in our master bedroom. Thank you to the MegMade team! More...

Just had a beautiful Campaign Dresser delivered that we had custom stained in a dark walnut/espresso color for our bedroom. It looks amazing! We happened to walk into MegMade a few weeks ago, as we were in the neighborhood and couldn't believe the selection of vintage furniture they had for custom finishing in their warehouse. Both Meg and her husband Joe are very passionate about the pieces they have and restore. Will be back for sure! More...

After purchasing something and overall happy with the product. I was however disappointed by the customer service at Meg Made initially. When my order was delivered timely but damaged I never got a response to my call or email. I decided to live with the chip in the paint as this was going into a childs room anyway. UPDATE:megmade contacted me and apologized for the miscommunication. I have since recommended them to clients and friends who have all thanked me for such a unique place to shop. I wish I updated my review earlier! More...

It's rare to find solid wood furniture that doesn't cost a fortune but MegMade delivers! I had gone to crate and barrel, pottery barn and west elm and everything was just so cookie cutter and most was particle board. I want a home that's a little different and MegMade is making that happen. I recently bought a gorgeous buffet and hutch that is mid century modern in style, the price was more than reasonable and the refinish job was amazing. I go back to MegMade every few weeks (or every week! ) because they always have new stuff that's been brought in or refinished. I've still got a lot of furniture to buy and MegMade is my number 1 destination to find unique, high quality, fun furniture that no one else on the block will have!The other reason I go back.... the big jar of starbursts. I never leave without eating a few ;) More...

Meg and her team are actual miracle workers you guys, they are pure MAGIC!  I have a lovely vintage dresser that's been with me for 6+ years and when I recently moved into my new condo it finally hit me that it was decidedly much more shabby than chic...so I sent it off to Meg's magical workshop to be given a facelift!  The initial pictures I sent didn't quite convey the state that it was in (layers and layers of paint, there was duct tape on nearly every drawer, and there were several chunks of wood missing, and that was just on the outside) so I took trip up to their store front/warehouse (which by the way is amazing!) and met with Meg to talk about our options...after explaining the story behind the dresser and the emotions I have attached to it, and discovering our Kansas City roots connection (KCMO represent!!), she said they would work their hardest to make the dresser look good again......and boy did she deliver on that promise(!!!), and then some...I was absolutely blown away when the dresser was delivered last week!!!  I would have been happy with just a new coat of paint to be honest, but Meg and her elves, er, I mean her team, stripped that baby down, filled holes, took off tape, added trim where it was missing, to make a long story short they worked their magic because it looks brand, spankin' new, it's a total showstopper!!!I could not be happier with the end result and would definitely, 100%, no doubt about it recommend MegMade and will be a customer again!!!  Thanks again:) More...

We've purchased two great vintage pieces from MegMade in the last year (the latest one earlier this month from their new showroom), and I would recommend working with them. Our first piece was a vintage walnut and white lacquer buffet - a custom job Meg did for us at a discount after a piece we found on Etsy turned out to be already sold. Our latest piece is a great little mid-century dresser finished in bright blue with gold hardware. After recently visiting their showroom, I can also say they've upped their game on finishes, which tended to be a bit inconsistent the first time I saw their work last summer. If you like quality solid wood furniture and are looking for something unique at a great price, definitely take a look and keep looking if you don't see what you want the first time around. They have new inventory constantly and a new warehouse full of great stuff ready for refinishing. I will say that we had minor customer service snafus with both experiences, but the team was incredibly gracious and responsive in resolving any issues (and was definitely concerned with our satisfaction). Just keep in mind that you're working with a small local team, not a large national retailer. More...

We went to MegMade after someone suggested it to us when we moved to a new apartment. We picked out a great dresser and mirror out of the great selection. Meg even made some slight adjustments to them so they would match each other and the rest of the furniture in our room. After we got our new pieces (delivered easily and on time), we decided we wanted our bookshelves to match the dresser and mirror. So Meg mixed us up a can of the paint she used on the pieces and gave us some pointers for how to best paint our shelves. Highly recommend MegMade. The selection is great and they're very helpful with picking out what you want. There's a huge supply of finished and unfinished ones so you can easily find something that fits your style and space.

I'm going to go back to Megmade.Etsy eat your heart out...we have Meg and she's got it made xoxo More...

I recently purchased a bar cart and a dresser from MegMade. While the furniture is definitely on the more expensive side, it's much better quality than something you'll get at a chain furniture store, and you know you're getting a one-of-a-kind piece. I paid for delivery on the dresser which was well worth it ($80 for one piece, goes up from there) - the guys were super professional, arrived right on time, and were really friendly. My only complaint is about the dresser. I was able to customize the piece with the paint color of my choice. After the delivery guys dropped it off, I inspected the dresser and realized there were a few flaws in the paint job. First, there are two strange brown spots on one of the drawers. Probably not noticeable to anyone else, but it bothers me. Second, after opening and closing one of the drawers a few times (we were filling them up with clothing), I saw that the paint was already chipping away on the surrounding wood. Luckily Meg provides a free cup of "touch up" paint for nicks like this, but it was frustrating to have this happen within the first few hours of owning it, and I feel like it'll be an ongoing problem.All that being said, I would definitely buy here again. It's a great local business, and Meg is really good at what she does. Make sure to go next door to the warehouse of unfinished pieces if you visit - no one took us over there until the second time I was there (to pick up the bar cart I had already paid for), and I really wish I had seen that before purchasing my dresser. Also, while they have lots of end tables, dressers, buffets, and hutches, the one thing I felt like they were missing was coffee tables! I would have loved to get one of those from her, but couldn't find anything. I hope this becomes part of the inventory soon! More...

I had an absolutely fantastic experience with MegMade, working with both Meg and Shelby. The piece I got is absolutely one of a kind, especially since they were great enough to change up colors for us and even refinish the handles to our liking. In addition to the dresser, they also painted a mirror to match. The end result = an amazing set. To top it all off, they even mixed custom paint for us so we could take on a DiY project of our own. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new piece. Thank you, all! More...

Oh MegMade, how I adore thee! Seriously. MegMade is an absolute gem! I stumbled upon this place one day while searching for vintage furniture on the Internet. I called them and asked if I could stop by their warehouse to look for a dresser that I had spotted online. They were super kind and allowed me to browse forever. I immediately purchased the dresser and a nightstand because well, it was a Drexel and absolutely gorgeous! It's so hard to find nice, refinished furniture these days.A few days later I stopped back in a purchased another dresser with the intention of making it into an entertainment stand. They were so kind to customize the color for me and gut the middle of it so that I could place my cable box, etc in it. Lastly Meg is awesome. She had a a amazing eye for design and is incredibly helpful when you are picking out pieces. They can even find you pieces if you give them an idea of what you are looking for. I plan on buying another mirror, headboard and coffee table from them. I'm always impressed with their work and the furniture.Oh and they do delivery for a decent price and the guys who deliver are awesome! :) I highly recommend checking out MegMade! More...

I just received my new buffet, dresser/changing table and couldn't be any happier with my experience at MegMade! Joe, Meg, and Amanda were super friendly and helpful in picking out pieces that fit my needs and style to a tee. Pricing is reasonable. Robert and Kevin delivered and assisted with painting my pieces and were very professional, enthusiastic and gave me lots of useful tips and advice for the care of my new furniture.  I highly recommend this store for anyone, regardless of style type!!

We had a terrific experience from start to finish with MegMade.  We knew from perusing MegMade's site and FB page that we could definitely find something that suited us and our taste.  My wife emailed Meg's team to have them be on the lookout for a piece with specific measurements and Amanda sent us pics of pieces that could work.  When we went to the warehouse, Amanda, who is friendly and knowledgeable, helped us find something great.  She walked us through the various finish options and my wife was able to have a specific custom color special ordered.  Exactly one week later, our piece was delivered to our home, where it looks fantastic.  Robert and Kevin very carefully delivered our buffet and painstakingly moved it to its final resting place.  They were great, very friendly and upbeat.  Kevin himself painted it; it's a smooth, professional lacquer finish.  The "thank you" package included a container of touch-up paint and brush.  We'll definitely be recommending MegMade to friends in the market for upcycled and refinished vintage furniture.

MegMade is a dream!!!! After coveting pieces posted to their Facebook page for weeks, I set up a time to meet Meg and see her inventory. I was a bit awestruck - every piece was gorgeous, charming & lovely! Meg was so helpful and patient as I talked through my new home and showed her pictures...she pointed to a few work-in-progress pieces that had lots of potential. I went back a few days later and bought a buffet and credenza fresh off the blocks ... really amazing to see the before and after products! Best part - Meg arranged for them to be delivered that day! :) 5+ stars for this Chicago-based business. It's no wonder they've grown exponentially in their first year. Great prices, great pieces, great people - can't wait to see where they go! More...

Just had our first MegMade piece delivered today! We originally found a piece on Craigslist and went to the showroom to check it out. It didn't work out for aesthetic reasons, but luckily Meg pointed us in the direction of MegMade's warehouse, just a few blocks away (it's walkable). There, we picked out a completely new piece and were able to guide the custom design process ourselves, free of charge. Less than two weeks later the piece is now in our dining room. We can't say enough. Delivery was fast and easy. Already looking forward to shopping for our next MegMade piece. More...

MegMade offers a stunning selection of refurbished antique furniture and and ready-to-be-customized antiques. I love my dresser! I went in on a day that the warehouse was open and was able to choose a mid-century dresser and specify a perfect paint color. It was delivered to 3rd floor apartment at a time that worked for me by a nice person.  This piece is so unique but it fits the decor of my space like a glove. I paid about half the price of a new Crate and Barrel dresser. More...

I normally don't write reviews but this was definitely one to remember:I purchased a beautiful hand painted charcoal black dresser about a week ago. I had it for about two days and decided to try and move it into another room myself... not a good idea! I ended up putting a huge scratch in it!Called MegMade and asked them what to do and they said they could give me some touch up paint to fix it. The next day they called me and said they were going to be in my area so they could even drop it off. One of their employees showed up and explained to me how to fix it and ended up just coming up and fixing it for me! :) What great customer service. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Meg is awesome and her husband.. he's ok! Lol. Can't wait until I get a bigger place so I can buy more of their items! More...
