Looking to give a piece of vintage furniture a serious reboot? Refinishing furniture is not for the faint of heart. We can safely say we’ve made our share of DIY mistakes over the years, but luckily, we’ve found a guiding light. Enter Scout Design Studio, a Dallas-based firm who has made mastery of the refinishing trade.
A simple scroll through their Instagram feed shows you why. With high-gloss lacquer, contemporary upholstery, acrylic legs, and refinished brass accents, the Scout team transforms castaway furniture into covet-worthy pieces. While they specialize in refinishing, Scout also offers a line of exclusive, limited-run pieces. Their 15,000-square-foot studio, located in the heart of Dallas’s Design District, features both new and vintage designs, as well as a carefully curated collection of artwork, lighting, and accessories.
We’ve tapped the "Scout Pack" to share some advice on refinishing (and thus, transforming!) vintage pieces, whether with a glossy coat of lacquer or updated upholstery.
