Decorative iron accents for the home & garden.

Custom Work

Whether it’s based off of an existing piece, a drawing, a photograph, a magazine or catalogue clipping, or even an idea from your head, we can custom create an ironwork piece to fit in your home or garden. Most of our sales are for custom work, and that’s perfect. We believe that everyone should get the piece they envision, built to work for their home.

We have a number of ways to do this:

Customize One Of our Pieces

We can conform one of our own products to meet your needs; whether it is design, size or function.

Custom From an Existing Piece or Design

We can design a piece to match the style of something you already have so that it looks as if it belongs. We can reproduce a piece from a magazine clipping or photograph, reworking it if you like to personalize it to your tastes. Or, we can take the things you like best out of a number of pieces and incorporate them into the piece you want.

Custom From Scratch

We can create an entirely new design based on an idea, using your preferences to give you the look you want.

How We Do It

  • A design idea always comes first
  • You tell us what you want
  • We can come up with one on our own or you can bring one in to us
  • Whatever you choose, we strive to create the look you want
  • Next, we doodle and turn the idea into something you can visualize
  • And from there we get your input and do some fine-tuning
  • Then we turn it into specs with all the measurements
  • And… we build it

Repairs

If you get attached to things for sentimental reasons, you probably don’t want to throw something away that’s broken. Why discard an antique iron bench because of a broken leg? If it is possible to repair your wrought iron piece, we would be happy to do it for you. 

Often a customer already has a wrought iron piece, perhaps it was a gift from a loved one, or their first kitchenette suite, or just a piece that struck their fancy at a yard sale or antique shop. 

Everything is perfect about it except it’s showing a little bit of wear or the colour won’t do. We offer custom refinishing, we have our own colours to choose from, or you can bring in one of your own for us to apply.

Benefits

Something you enjoy having in your home will not be discarded – repairing a piece saves you from replacing it completely.

Our Capabilities

We can repair, re-work or strengthen previous welds from older wrought iron pieces… sometimes on newer pieces too!

Replace welds
We often repair broken welds at the joining of seats to legs on chairs, where there is often strain placed at the load bearing structure points.

Strengthen structures
Chairs and tables come in that were built light for a purpose, but do not have the stability to withstand wear and tear. A simple joining system can be added to stabilize flimsy legs or weaker parts, ensuring a longer life and more durability.

Replace parts
Often we can replace strapping in chairs, reproduce and replace missing scrolls, etc. That’s the beauty of wrought iron – the reliability of the material makes it a great renewable item.

Refinishing

Refinishing an item is the removal of the current finish, and reapplying the same colour or changing that colour to reflect the customer’s style and decor. 

Often repairs are included when this is done, but it’s not necessary. We can take an antique and bring it back to new again!

Benefits

Extend life of an important piece of your home or garden decor. Freshen appearance of an item that is timeless in design, but where the colour dates it.

Match finishes to one that you like better. Sometimes, an old favorite really only needs to be refinished to re-establish its charm.

Our Capabilities

Over the years we have developed and refined our finishing techniques, from simple colour choices to those trickier multi-step colours. 

Just as you would reupholster furniture, you can refinish your wrought iron to update it to suite your décor.
