The Process: If you decide you would like us to paint the piece, go ahead and purchase it from the site. This will act as a deposit. Then reach out to us by phone or email to discuss the paint colour, hardware choices and any other details of how you would like your piece finished. Once it is ready for pick up or delivery, you can pay the balance by E-transfer, credit card over the phone or in person.

 Our Colours: Our standard colours include Bemjamin Moore's White Dove, White Down, Metropolitan, Amherst Grey, Wrought Iron and Black. Custom colours can be accommodated for an up-charge of $50.

Our Paints: We use Benjamin Moore COMMAND paint in a satin finish. It is a water based acrylic urethane enamel that dries to a hard, durable finish that does not require a varnish coat. We recommend the satin finish because it's not too shiny like a gloss and is more wipeable than a matte finish.

Our Finishes: Chatelet's furniture is painted using a compresser and a spray gun in our onsite paint booth. Our pieces are given a light sanding to give the surface some grip, then one coat of primer is applied and 2 coats of paint. We do not offer faux finishes but we can provide a lightly distressed finish by sanding the the edges and details of the piece to give it a more rustic, aged look.

Upholstery Options: The "Upholstered" price includes reupholstering using fabrics up to $20 per yard. If you decide to provide your own fabric, there may be a discount off the piece at the discretion of Chatelet.

Shipping: We offer free shipping within the Greater Toronto Area on orders over $100. Entering your correct postal code at checkout will determine if your address qualifies for free local delivery. Orders outside of our free shipping area or orders under $100 can be picked up in store. Contact us directly for possible shipping rates within Ontario.

What our customers are saying

This shop is a definite find. If English cottage and French provincial is your design sensibility, you will LOVE this place. There are both finished and unfinished pieces, which you can have upholstered or painted to your taste. The quality of the refinishing of antique pieces is exceptional, and the bespoke upholstery that Teresa did on the chairs I bought there was outstanding. Great customer service, fast turnaround, I have nothing but great things to say.


Since 2020, Châtelet is my favourite go-to place for well curated French furniture and decor items. Teresa selects really unique pieces. Also, the furniture reupholstering and refinishing service is top notch!


In a recent internet search I was fortunate to find Teresa’s store. I’ve been collecting French furniture for a number of years and was looking to add to a particular room. I found a beautiful barrel back canapé in carved walnut with Aubusson fabric. The online purchase was seamless and Teresa delivered the piece to me a couple of days later. This experience was the very best and I’m anxious to return.


A well-curated collection of antique, vintage, and newer French and French-inspired finds. The pieces are high quality, and delivery is fast and friendly.


The last item I bought was a beautiful yellow shelf for my guest room. Awesome service and beautiful pieces! I have been shopping with them for years!
