Creating An Ecofriendly Home

Hello, thank you for stopping by The Restored Dogwood. We are a family business run by me, Molly, and my husband, Doug (along with moral support from our school age boys) located in the D.C. suburbs. We are dedicated to helping people style their homes in a sustainable, eco-friendly manner while supporting local and small businesses.

How do we do that? By finding furniture pieces that still have a lot of life, but may have an outdated or undesired aesthetic. Vintage furniture is our jam, but we’ll renew any kind of piece old or not. The refinishing process is light on the chemicals: paint and stains are low/no VOC. The cosmetics are heavy on supporting small: hardware, drawer liners and paint supplies are sourced from small businesses, local to the Northern Virginia area if possible.

Our focus might be furniture, but we are so much more than just painters. We are dedicated to helping others find eco friendly alternatives in all aspects of their lives. Everything we recommend is easy to apply and are good for the planet, and our wallets.
