micheleAbout Michele Fenton

Michele Fenton is the Master Craftsman and Owner of Tupelo Lane Designs.  She has trained under world renowned cabinet finishers and has honed her skills over many years. Your cabinetry will look and feel like fine furniture.

Painters vs. Cabinet Refinisher
What is the difference between a “painter” and a cabinet finisher? While finishing cabinetry incorporates much of the skill, tools and equipment involved in other forms of painting, it is a completely different animal. Cabinet finishing is an art unto itself. It requires a considerable amount of preparations, and an organized system to provide smooth, professional finishes.

Cabinetry

Are you looking at your kitchen and wondering if it can be updated with paint or stain? Like the layout of your kitchen and it is functional but you want a new look? Your cabinets are in good shape but you can’t stand that Orange Oak?

Tupelo Lane Designs is your answer. We can finish your cabinets to a factory finish for 1/4 the price of replacing your cabinetry.  Additionally, you will get your same ROI as buying new cabinets.

Fast, Reliable Service

We can be in and out of your home in 5-7 working days while offering a full array of colors – you do not have to choose from what we have in stock. Your cabinetry is finished with professional grade pigmented top coat. This special waterborne formula delivers extraordinary depth and vibrancy of color that cannot be achieved in any oil based product.

All products are low/no VOC. You do not have to empty your cabinets and still have full access to your kitchen during the entire process. We offer cost saving options to keep the cost manageable.

Thank you Michele and crew for the amazing transformation of my kitchen cabinets and master bath vanity! The gray is gorgeous and I can’t wait to share pictures when the backsplash and wall paint are complete. Michele and her team were professional, timely, and dedicated to perfection. They were very diligent and all have a positive attitude that makes them shine. Thanks!!

Thank you Tupelo Designs for breathing new life into my very dated cabinets. Going from golden oak to a creamy white with a grey island made such a difference. I also love my “new” kitchen table that you refinished. I added new upholstered chairs for a totally new look. I’m so happy I was able to keep my old table. I would highly recommend Michelle to update your space. It’s a huge transformation for a fraction of the cost of replacement.

What Our Clients Say

We are getting ready to sell our condo so we had our oak and laminate cabinets painted white in February. It has totally transformed our kitchen and we’ve had many compliments. Michele and her team were organized, thorough, and professional and I would definitely recommend their services. Not to mention that I paid 1/3 of what I was quoted for new cabinets. Great company!

What Our Clients Say

I recently hired Michele to paint my kitchen cabinets white and couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Not only do my cabinets look amazing, but Michele was great to work other. She finished the project ahead of time and had great attention to detail. I also love that she employs local moms to help paint. I definitely recommend Tupelo Lane Designs!

Thank you Tupelo Lane for making my kitchen look brand new. I love the cream cabinets, it got rid of all the wood color and brightened my whole downstairs. It was a great experience working with Michele and her crew. They we neat, timely and the whole project was done in a couple days.

Melissa Noto

What Our Clients Say

Michelle and her team did an amazing transformation of my kitchen. The cabinets had previously been painted black and I thought for sure I’d have to live with them until we could afford a gut rehab. But Michelle agreed to take it on and transformed them to a lovely light gray. My kitchen looks so much bigger and brighter, it’s amazing. Michelle is extremely easy to work with. We had a flooring job going on at the same time and she was patient through many delays of the date and didn’t mind working around the floor guys once she was finally able to start. She sprayed the drawers and doors at her studio while her crew cleaned, lightly sanded, primed and painted the boxes here at my house. The cabinets were done in the exact amount of time quoted (start to finish about 3 days) and she and her crew did a fabulous job of cleaning up every day (even though our home was basically a construction zone at that point and she really didn’t have to). Michelle takes pride in her work and I would highly recommend Tupelo Lane Designs to anyone.

Renee Griffin Hacker

What Our Clients Say

We couldn’t be happier with our ‘new’ kitchen cabinets and Michele’s work! Michele and her crew are both professional and friendly. Our kitchen project was completed according to the timeline that she gave. She and her crew did their best to make our kitchen as usable and family friendly as possible during the project. Our home was clean each afternoon when they left. And on completion of the project we were surprised with a personal touch from Michele……she left us dinner in our freezer for the first night in our ‘new’ kitchen! This isn’t just a business for Michele….she truly cares about each project and the people that she works with. We would highly recommend Michele and Tupelo Lane Design to anyone
