Hi! I’m Kelly and welcome to our 2nd Chance Restoration page!  We are a family owned business started by accident after I lost my corporate job due to layoffs. I needed to provide an income somehow, and even though I had been painting small furniture pieces since I was young, it never occurred to me to take a hobby and passion and turn it into something bigger.  We started small with a desk here and there, and then bureaus, etc.  Then we noticed a need for cabinets to be transformed (bathrooms AND kitchens), and banister updates, and whitewashing of fireplaces etc…  We pride ourselves on seeing a need and being the ‘go to’ place for so many who are looking to do some refreshes to their homes.

Here we are more than 8 years later with hundreds of clients, a 95% referral rate, countless pieces that have been restyled and thousands of cabinet doors that have been transformed. We love working with our clients who are striving to keep their family heirlooms as showcase pieces and are excited to see what each year has in store for us. I hope you’ll join us on the journey and enjoy looking through our website for inspiration…

Kitchen #5 got wrapped up yesterday and we are loving using the color 'PaperWhite' instead of our usual White Dove 😂

Our client has been with us since the early days when we were first starting out, and we were thrilled to finally be able to get this major restyling on the books for her! Enjoy your 'new' kitchen Inesta family ❤❤❤

Working with Kelly was a dream!! She has vision, is always positive, on time, accommodating, and a true miracle worker! From the moment Kelly came to the house for the initial consultation, she was very thorough in explaining the process. She brought color options and suggestions. She also answered any questions we had.

When the process started, Kelly reached out ahead of time to ensure we had everything all set and even came to the house again to walk through the process one more time. When the painting began, the timeline was adhered to and you also would never know that she was there. No mess was left behind and I didn’t even have to empty my cabinets!! My husband and I are thrilled with the final results. We love our kitchen again. When guests come over they all comment on how spectacular the kitchen looks and they are shocked to know that the cabinets were painted. The quality of her work is phenomenal!

We highly recommend 2nd Chance Restoration! I wish I had more projects for her!!

Absolutely Sensational! Kelly completely transformed my kitchen from dark and drab to bright, beautiful, clean and airy.  Kelly is extremely conscientious and is also responsive and has incredible work ethic. She worked quickly to get the job done in a matter of days and was an absolute pleasure to work with. She also went out of her way to recommend other contractors to me who were absolutely fabulous as well. Kelly is a gem. I can’t recommend her highly enough. If you are looking for someone to transform your kitchen or any of your furniture, look no further than Kelly Plunkett and 2nd Chance Restoration.

Thank you Kelly for making my home even more beautiful! I can’t thank you enough!
