Our story

Where we began

Murray and Monique Turnbull (pictured right) started M.F. Turnbull in 1988 servicing the furniture and joinery industries as specialist finishers of spray applied coatings.  

Since then, the team at M.F. Turnbull has honed their craft in bringing furniture back to life and opened a dedicated kitchen refinishing shop in Christchurch called M.F. Turnbull Kitchen Renewal.
