After living in Europe for 8 years, owner Katrina Barclay moved to Ottawa in 2011 and started an at-home business painting and selling furniture. In September 2012 the Malenka Originals shop/workshop space opened in Britannia Village, Ottawa. In March 2016, the shop moved to its current location in Hintonburg, Ottawa.

Along with selling select pieces of refreshed furniture, Malenka Originals is the Ottawa stockist for Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan and Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint.

Katrina also offers workshops for those wanting a creative space to learn about painting furniture.

Malenka Originals is environmentally mindful by using only low or zero VOC products, and harsh chemicals are avoided. And by choosing upcycled furniture, you're helping cut down on needless waste.
