Are you a DIY’er or a DIFY kind of person? What’s YOUR style?

Every day we chat with people in our stores and online who LOVE what we do.
They are inspired by the before and after pictures we post.

LOVE this before and after using IOD Image Transfer from Front Porch Mercantile

They love the idea of re-loving pieces in their home or heading out on the hunt to find treasures to re-love using our Canadian Made safe, furniture paints.

Beautiful Milk Painted pieces

Front Porch Mercantile Moncton is now open at 179 Bonaccord Street Moncton

MANY of them happily take our workshops, gobble up gallons of paint and head home to DIY their own pieces.

Paint your own furniture workshops at Front Porch Mercantile

But, recently we are seeing a big trend emerge.

YES people WANT to re-love their pieces, but they JUST DON’T ALL WANT TO DO IT THEMSELVES.

Google DIFM (do it for me) or DIFY (do it for you) and a huge trend is emerging.
We are here to help my friends. We are nothing if not “trendsetters” ha ha (kidding on that – kinda)

“Kids, jobs, space, time, and they just don’t want to do it”

I recently surveyed our customers and asked why they had not tackled the pieces they said they wanted to re-love. “Kids, jobs, space, time and just not interested in doing it” kept coming up over and over.

Your life is busy. We’re pretty good at painting and kinda like it. A lot. Let us help you.

Did you know that along with offering workshops on how to paint your furniture, selling fab furniture paints, we also offer custom painting services?


We do it for YOU!

For reals.

New trend from DIY to DIFY Do it For You from Front Porch Mercantile

It’s pretty simple, you contact Lisa in our Moncton store and she will be happy to set up an appointment to chat about your piece. Prices vary depending on the condition of the piece, look desired etc, so there is no cookie cutter price list. Drop in to our Moncton location for a quote and get on the custom order calendar. Spots fill up quickly.

Currently, I am unable to take on any new custom work in Lunenburg (sad trombone) as I’m still a one women show here and busy keeping the studio workshops and booth space filled, and learning my limits, but, I will announce when I am able to take on custom furniture again.

So, if you are a DIY’er you can always get inspired and come paint WITH us anytime, and we will always be here with your favourite paints!

If you are like “man, I just want to get you to do it for me” kind of person, well, we’ve got you covered there too. Let us DIFY!

Drop in anytime to discuss your needs or get inspired by our paints and DIY!

What do you think? Are you a DIY’er or a DIFY’er?

Thanks for popping in,

Happy Painting (or NOT) ha ha
