About Us

about imageHi friends, We’re Patrick and Jessaca Chelette.  We are a husband and wife team who love to put our heads together to create fun new pieces, or up-cycle old pieces into brand new works of art! Our passion is working with and creating new handmade furniture and home decor. We specialize in custom builds, repairs, and refinishes. And along the way, we also enjoy building up our clients and followers with love, encouragement, and helpful tips.

Along with running our full-time business, we also homeschool our 4 children, and do our best to juggle the demands of daily life with as much grace as possible. But no matter how crazy things may get around here, we wouldn’t trade any of it for anything in the world.

Here at Chelette’s Decor & More, we also love our clients and followers. Y’all allow us to continue to be able to do what we love to do! And we are so grateful for each and every one of you! We welcome all of you to join us on our fun woodworking journey one nail, paint brush, and cup of coffee at a time. We love what we do and hope that all of you enjoy your time spent here with us.

So, pop in, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and stay for a while as we provide you with our very own handmade creations, refinishing and repairs, tips and tricks, encouragement, recipes, laughs, and so much more….

Locally Owned and Operated

Our shop is conveniently located in Hammond, Louisiana. Hammond is a beautiful, quiet town located between New Orleans and Baton Rouge, and is only about 45 minutes from both. We love our life here in Louisiana, and love what we do. And since we are so proud of our heritage, and our Louisiana roots,  always do our best to  purchase all of our materials for our products locally. This way, we can support and build up other small businesses in our area.

Furniture Repair and Restoration

We can take any tired, old furniture piece or family heirloom and transform it into a beautiful new keepsake. We use modern finishes when appropriate and can even use old style hand rubbed finishes to preserve the original look and feel of each special piece that we have the privilege to work with.

We understand the sentimental value of family heirloom furniture and specialize in complete restoration.

Custom Furniture Design

We love to create new, 100% handmade furniture built with solid wood from our local sawmill or from preexisting structures that we tear apart ourselves. This is a great solution for creating pieces that may look old but are built with modern techniques and finishes. Simply send us a design and look that you would like for your space, and we will take it from there! Designing brand new pieces from scratch is our specialty.

And before you send that old piece to the dump, check with us first! We love to transform something old into something brand new. Around here we call that Up-Cycling, and it happens to be one of our most favorite things to do. Let us help you turn that trash into treasure.

Plus Much More

We offer additional products such as seasonal jams and jellies from our own garden, handmade soaps, lotions, scrubs, and bath soaks, and have just unveiled our new clothing line.

We also have furniture refinishing classes as often as we can. Our classes are limited to very small groups and sell out quickly. It’s a great way to find out exactly how we create the beautiful finishes you see on our pieces. If you are interested, simply keep an eye out for our next available class.

We are also really excited about our online classes that we are hoping to have available to soon to all of our followers. Make sure you check back with us to find out when we will make them available to the public.

Of Course We’re Social

We love interacting with our community. We have a large following in Southeast Louisiana, as well as various locations around the United States through the use of social media. We have several convenient ways for you to stay connected. If you’d like to see some great pictures of our work, our family, and little tidbits of our lives, we invite you to like and follow our page on Facebook. That is where we share most of our fun stuff. If you’re not on Facebook, you can find out more about us on Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram.
