We know that money its tight, but we all still want nice things in our home. By finding old preloved furniture and giving it a lot of loving and tlc, we transform what was once dreary dark and bland into an item of beauty, proud to stand centrepiece in any room. This way, all the charm and old characteristics of a vintage piece is kept, but repaired, enhanced and brought up to date, ready to grace your home.
We all love the 'Shabby Chic" look, which suits every home, and whether it's a few fine coats of the excellent Estate Eggshell in Farrow & Ball, finished to a clean finish, or sanded down with some coarse sandpaper for a light, medium or ultra distressed look, you'll find a the look you love here. And of course, there's good old Annie Sloan Chalk Paint for those pieces that scream out for the antique or creative look.
We take our time. We remove all fixings, we mask, we sand, we prime, we then add 3 to 4 very fine layers of Farrow & Ball Estate Eggshell paint, or choose from the wonderful Annie Sloan Chalk Paint range and waxes, ensuring every area is clean to give the highest finish you could possibly wish for. We then finish with a clear matt varnish for extra protection, and beeswax the bare wood surfaces to highlight the beauty of the natural grain and to protect and nurture the wood for years to come.
With a variety of furniture to choose from, we're sure you'll find that perfect piece for your home. Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us.
