Why Altar’d?

We chose the name “Altar’d” because it reminds us that God has given us “beauty for ashes” (Isaiah 61:3). We cannot compare what we do to as great a gift as that. But, what we do is take the old forgotten furniture and give it new beauty.

We take the forgotten, and make it Unforgettable.


Colby & Mandie Morris, Owners

   Altar’d began several years ago out of Mandie’s passion for reinventing furniture, and has become more than a business to us. We have made life long friendships with many of our clients, and we count it a privilege to design custom pieces for homes across the U.S. In 2006, Colby’s career & promotions caused us to relocate across the US every 9 months for nearly 5 years. As a renter, I couldn’t stand the white walls, and couldn’t paint them- so I started painting all of the furniture in our home. I loved how a custom piece of furniture could make a room feel like home- even 700 miles from family. We are completely self taught in our trade, and our techniques are the result of trying, failing, and trying again.

Over the years, Altar’d has grown- but we still hand paint every piece, and know every client, and we would love to custom create furniture for you.
