We are Stephen and Ashley Henson, furniture refinishers from Brandon, Mississippi and owners and artists of Henson Home Furnishings. However, Henson Home Furnishings is not a full time gig for us. We both work full time jobs in addition to refinishing.
We always get asked how we go into refinishing furniture and, to be honest, it was not something we saw ourselves doing years down the road or even professionally. In early 2019, Ashley painted her old bedroom suite that she had in high school in hopes to sell it as it had been sitting in the garage collecting dust. It was in rough shape cosmetically, but still had a good, solid structure. She ended up painting and selling it, and it was uphill from there! We would find pieces on the side of the road, destined for the trash. We would take them home and fix them up and post for sale. Before we knew it, we had several people contact us to see if we would paint their furniture for them. Things took off quicker than we had imagined. We were not prepared for the outpour of love and support we received from so many people.
Stephen handles all of the prep. From sanding to repairs, he does it all. Ashley is the painter. She dreams up a finish and brings it to life with her spray gun or paint brush. We are truly a great team.
You can view our available painted pieces in person at Antique Aly, 294 Commerce Park Drive, Ridgeland, Mississippi 39157.
Ashley is also teaching workshops at Market House in Pearl, Mississippi a few nights a month for anyone who would like to learn the art of refinishing!
We are so appreciative of the love and support we have received through our community. We value each and every one of our clients and customers and we love that you get just as excited about our work as we do. This is a true passion, and we are more than excited to share this journey with you!
