About Us

Dale & Connie...the artisans of Winston Home Designs

Dale & Connie customize furniture & teach others how to also!

Hi, we’re Dale and Connie Mathews,  the artisans behind Winston Home Designs. Both former business owners,

we thought it was time to slow down and do something we both love doing; and that is to create beautiful, 

one of a kind furniture and decor. Dale’s background in carpentry, and my background in art blended 

and we began creating “functional art” for the home.  We believe in producing quality home furnishings 

that will last for years to come, as well as make your home more beautiful!

Why settle for the ordinary, when you can have extraordinary!

We specialize in uniquely painted finishes and custom work for your cherished furniture & decor, 

or pieces from our inventory. We use only the best quality cabinet grade paints/stains 

and add unique faux finishing techniques with superior craftsmanship.

Winston Home Designs Creative DIYers! We provide all of the products for  you and show you 

the correct way to use them to create your own beautiful pieces.   We’ve made DIYing easy for you!

Shipping White Glove or Blanket Wrapped may take up to 2-4 weeks for delivery, depending on your location. If you live in a building that requires special permissions,  insurance certificates for deliveries, or limited delivery times, please contact us prior to purchase to see if our Carriers can accommodate you. Once the Carrier has picked up your item they are responsible in the unlikely event of damage, until it is delivered to your home. We remain in close contact during the process to make sure everything goes smoothly. We do require a designated receiver 18 or over to accept delivery, and sign the delivery form.

We require a signature for receipt of the package, and tracking number will be provided to you once packages have shipped. We take great care in packaging and shipping our items, with photos and/or videos of the process, Once the package is delivered, the buyer needs to inspect the contents carefully.

We use digitized photography for our photos. Although we do our best to show the true finished color of the piece, colors may vary depending on the device you are viewing them with. We will be happy to send you any extra pictures, or video of the products you are interested in.

Character Marks:

Many times we deal with vintage pieces that we are able to restore and bring new beauty to. Because of their age, many will have slight imperfections that are not able to be completely removed, and in some cases, we don’t want them removed! We will always stand behind the quality of our work, but we can not  guarantee wear and tear, once they are in your home. We do include care tags, and instructions for the proper upkeep of your refinished pieces, to ensure their lasting beauty. We have also included a short article on how to care for your furniture in our Blog posts section.


We do not accept cancellations, but please contact us if you have any problems with your order.
