I have been up-cycling furniture for a number of years. For myself, family and friends. It is a passion, and I love the whole process involved. From the discovery, to the unveiling. I use a variety of different techniques to bring vintage furniture alive once more. Paint, wallpaper, stencilling, anything I feel would do a vintage piece justice. I love working on children’s furniture. Giving a tired, dark brown piece, an update with bright colours is so wonderful. Keeping the furniture out of landfill, and keeping the history alive is such a great feeling.
