At Malenka Originals, we’re passionate about transforming unwanted, outdated furniture into contemporary, beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces. And we’re also equally passionate about helping and teaching others to do the same.
A unique combo of workshop and store, Malenka Originals is a place to learn, share, and get inspired about painted furniture.
Started in 2011 by Katrina Barclay as an at-home business painting and selling furniture, Malenka Originals opened in September 2012 to Britannia Village, Ottawa, and then moved to its current location in Hintonburg in March 2016.
Along with selling select pieces of refreshed furniture, Malenka Originals is the exclusive Ottawa stockist for Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan. We also carry the full line of other Annie Sloan products such as Soft Wax, paint and wax brushes, books, fragrances and fabrics.
Also available are many other products for refreshing furniture such as Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint, Artisan Enhancements paint mediums, Royal Design Studio Stencils, Madeline Wax and Paint Brushes, and a wide range of decorative drawer knobs.
We also offer workshops for those wanting a creative space to learn more about techniques for painting furniture. Workshops will be posted on the Malenka Originals online shop.
If you can’t make it to Ottawa, you can shop online at malenkaoriginals.com.
