it’s all the little details together that make the whole piece

that attention to detail and a natural eye for beauty and quality make
crimson + oak designs’ work stand out from the rest

melinda k. casanova was taught to do things the right way from the beginning
pouring her heart and soul into every piece she refinishes while
integrating very high personal standards

melinda loves custom work
and treasures the trust that customers place in her to create
a completely unique design just for them

the process of transforming furniture into something fresh and new again,
never creating the same piece twice, is extremely exciting every time



"To me everything has a story."


good words


“She is artistic and has a meticulous work ethic. I have seen Melinda’s interactions with her clients from a consulting client for a day spa to furniture clients. In all instances, her work was impeccable. She takes the time to do the job correctly whether it’s overseeing a day spa from construction to opening or taking a piece of furniture & turning it into an amazing work of art. The love she has for a piece shows in her finished product. You will never be disappointed.”


“Working with Melinda at Crimson and Oak Designs was fantastic. She worked with me to create the ideal table/desk, and I love it. I appreciate the attention to detail she provided and the conscientious packing and shipping. I heartily recommend her services!”


“I commissioned Melinda at crimson + oak designs to find and paint a dresser for my baby girl's nursery.  All I knew is I wanted a coral dresser. Melinda sent me a few pictures of dressers that she had on hand that were ready to be painted and I went with one of those. Then I gave her a fabric swatch from the nursery and she customized the perfect coral paint for the dresser.  Working with Melinda is a breeze. She is very professional, creative and hard working and her work product is amazing! I LOVE the dresser she created for us and so does everyone who visits our nursery. I would highly recommend Melinda.  She is a true visionary who will help your idea come to life. I would seriously hire her to makeover several pieces in my home if she hadn't moved to another state!”


“Melinda did an excellent job painting my grandmother’s old bedroom suit. It is absolutely beautiful!! Would definitely recommend.”


“Melinda did a great job! My refinished table looks fantastic in my new house.”


“We had a kitchen  table that was the perfect size but not the perfect finish. crimson + oak designs' owner Melinda joined my husband's love of modern and my love of vintage to create this one of a kind finish that we will enjoy for years to come. Thanks Melinda! I am already looking for our next project!”
