A fresh new look: MF Turnbull

With more than 30 years in business, these local experts in paint, stain, polyurethane and polished finishes on furniture and joinery have earnt their place as an iconic Christchurch business.

There is very little in any home that the team at MF Turnbull cannot regenerate. Kitchen cabinets in melamine, paint, lacquer, and timber can be refinished to create a new and modern look.

“We have a great product to go over melamine which is so hardwearing. And a bonus is that it contains Micronised Wax – it makes the surface easy to clean,” says
co-owner Monique Turnbull.

The team of 20, which now operates over three Christchurch sites, also rejuvenate bedroom and dining furniture, doors, wardrobe doors, and anything in your house that might be spray painted. They can also do the modern equivalent of French Polishing – staining and clears in polyurethane. “I really like the idea that it’s an environmentally friendly way to refresh your house. Our approach means reuse
of a kitchen or piece of furniture, rather than throwing it out and buying new,”
says Monique.

Customer feedback says everything about how the team approach a job and the finished product they produce. Just a few samples of the huge cache of positive comments and thanks go as follows:

“We felt that we should write to express our appreciation for the outstanding kitchen refurbishment. We are absolutely delighted with the outcome and can find no fault whatsoever with either the quality of workmanship or the finished surfaces.”

“Just wanted to say how delighted we are with the paint job, if you can call it paint, it is like silk.”

“It looks frigging awesome! Please pass on my thanks to the painters and installers…and to you and the office staff. Such a
great job!”

Working with interior designers on a special or much-loved piece that needs to fit with a new scheme is a speciality. Upholstered items with timber parts can be resurfaced and then the piece can be taken to your upholsterer for recovering. The team thrives on challenges and loves it if an unusual request comes in.

The challenge can sometimes lie in bringing out of people’s heads the vision that they have.

By talking through the end goal using samples and options to clarify, the team is very good at turning visions into reality.
