We Give Furniture Makeovers

Did you know? We give Furniture Makeovers.

Let us explain... we love to refinish old, outdated furniture using our favourite paint and stain products like Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan and General Finishes Stains. Part of what we love is the transformation of something old to new again. As well as the creative process of course. Do you have an outdated, well loved, mismatched, second hand etc. furniture piece that needs to be restyled? Contact us and we can guide you through the steps or we can do it for you!
Our team of artists have been painting up a storm, here are some pieces that we have made over. Details on products used below each picture. Questions? Leave them in the comments below.
