About Us

How it all began


Chrysalis Home Works began in early 2013  as a small furniture refinishing company seeking out vintage, antique and unique furniture pieces and converting them in the style of shabby, rustic and farmhouse chic. Old and forgotten items were made into something new and beautiful again as well as creative uses were found to re-purpose almost anything. Owner, Ashley Zell and her husband Trevor also began building rustic furniture pieces.

Together, they have attended several local vintage and farmers markets to display their work as well as the 2014 Calgary Home and Design Show. They have also become a retailer for Alberta made reloved chalk paints and supplies.

After developing a passion for all things related to creating a beautiful home, Ashley enrolled in the Interior Design certificate program through the Universtity of Calgary and more recently, has become certified as a Home Stager. She hopes to continue to provide one of a kind furniture pieces to her customers as well as to help people to sell their homes or decorate their new or existing spaces.

Chrysalis Home Works is located in beautiful Priddis, Alberta and serves the surrounding communities. Please contact us for additional information relating to our services. Thank you for checking out our page.

"Ashley was fantastic to work with. She was very professional and courteous. My client was very impressed with the response she received after staging and we have both since referred out her services. I will definitely be using her again and I highly recommend!"

"Ashley was instrumental in the quick sale of my home! I was nervous about selling my home in a downward trending market, but Ashley's creative talents, keen eye for the best use of space and ability to make my home look fabulous definitely had an impact on how quickly it sold. Thank you Ashley for your help, professionalism and hard work! Now i am hiring her to help me renovate my new place!"

~Samantha Orthlieb~

"Ashley from Chrysalis Home Works was introduced to us by our Realtor. We were a bit skeptical about home staging at first but Ashley gave us some tips and prepared us for the staging. The Chrysalis Home Works team did a wonderful job setting up, our home looked just like something you will see in magazines! The traffic we had was incredible, our house was sold in 2 days in a market where the economy was shady and houses in our community just sit on the market for weeks and months. Ashley is very creative and professional in what she does and we would not have had such a successful experience without the works of Ashley and her team. If you have doubts about staging like we did, talk to Ashley!"
