Are you not ready to part with a piece of furniture that holds sentimental value? How about painting it brand new?


That's exactly why I started A Finished Piece - to help you revive your furniture and bring it back to life!


Replacing an entire kitchen can be expensive - and messy. How about a painting job instead?

You can have your kitchen cabinets look brand new for a fraction of the cost, and with a lot less of a mess!


Want to make your kitchen walls look amazing while also making it easy to keep them clean? 

You can have your kitchen walls look a whole lot better with the touch of a backsplash seamlessly installed.

Hi! My name is Jalyssa Duchaine.

Did you know that painting has been my hobby since I was a child? Growing up in Kitchener-Waterloo, I always loved art throughout elementary and high school. After graduating, I went to hair school and worked as a hairstylist for over 13 years, becoming passionate about colours, tones, and shades!


However, I have always loved re-finishing and painting old furniture such as dressers and cabinets that I picked up from the side of the road, or re-purposing entire kitchens cabinets from top to bottom - giving them a fresh look without having to spend my life savings.


So a few years ago I decided it was time to switch from hairbrushes to paintbrushes and make my dream a reality: owning a furniture and kitchen refinishing business to help people bring life back into their homes. 3 years and dozens of kitchens and furniture later, I am ready to help you refinish yours!

Jalyssa is a true artist. She transformed a plain solid wood dresser into the beautiful centrepiece of my child's nursery. The dresser looks brand new, with impeccably polished blonde wood and an adorable counterpoint of chalky white paint and sleek black hardware. More than being gorgeous, I'm glad to be giving new life to an older dresser that's still in perfect shape! Refurbishing furniture is the eco-friendly choice, and I hope it becomes even more popular. I'm sure I'll have more pieces expertly refurbished by Jalyssa in the future.
