Revive Your Furniture: Custom Finishing Services

Choosing to refinish your furniture can serve many purposes. Perhaps your pieces have endured years of use and are showing signs of wear. Or maybe they no longer fit the style of your home and need a fresh look.

 

There are also those beloved family items, rich with memories but left unused due to their outdated appearance. I've had the pleasure of reviving such pieces and seeing them regain their place in the heart of a home.

 

Refinishing your furniture means creating a unique, custom piece made just for you. Let me help you bring new life to your furniture, making it a cherished part of your home once again

Custom Creations: How to Arrange Your Commission

Paint Brushes

1. Get in touch

Start by getting in touch with details about your piece.

  • Clear photos of your piece

  • Approximate measurements

  • Any necessary repairs

  • Thoughts on colours & style

Don't worry if you haven't settled on a specific design or style yet! We'll collaborate closely to develop a unique design tailored just for you.

2. Design Consultation

Next we'll discuss the design, looking at style, colour palettes and your personal taste, working together to create a bespoke design just for you.

I can provide colour samples to help you choose and make sure you're happy with the design before any work starts.

Once we've finalised the design I’ll provide a full quote and my availability to complete the work.

3. Creating your custom piece

The creation process unfolds in my workshop located in Royal Wootton Bassett, Wiltshire.

 

For local clients, I provide complimentary collection and redelivery of your furniture.

 

If you're outside my local area, I can coordinate secure courier collection and delivery through a trusted service. Please note that courier charges will apply.

 

Throughout the process, I'll keep you updated on the progress of your piece. And, when possible, I'll share sneak peek photos so you can witness your furniture transform.

4. Home time

Once your furniture is finished I'll send photos (unless you prefer to wait for the reveal in person) and arrange delivery back home.

Your newly finished furniture will need approximately 30 days to fully cure, you will be able to use it during this time, it will just need to be treated with a little extra care. I'll provide detailed care instructions to ensure it stays beautiful for years to come.

This gorgeous set of Ercol furniture had great sentimental value as it had been in the family for years. Having been passed onto the next generation in the family, they decided it was time to have it refinished to fit into it's new home and get put to use again.

The table top was stripped of its dark finish, exposing the beautiful natural wood grain, which contrasts beautifully with the dark blue finish on the table base and chairs. 

It was an absolute pleasure working on this transformation and I love that this much loved furniture now continues its life with the third generation of this family.

This drinks cabinet was a piece I had in stock waiting to be painted. I posted a picture when I started the prep work and it  was quickly snapped up by its new owner, who asked for it to be painted in grey, with a hint of yellow and gold.

 

This piece had previously been painted in thick white paint, and had definitely seen better days.

 

From stripping the paint, to changing the hinges and updating the inside, there isn’t one part of this piece that hasn't been updated, and hidden underneath all that paint was this gorgeous wood grain. .
 

When I delivered it to its new owner she told me it would be filled with 'gin and nice things', and why not as this piece is definitely ready for the party!

When I picked up this sideboard it had a thick covering of wax and chalk paint and was crying out for an update. But once that had been removed, I had a blank canvas to transform this art deco sideboard back to all its glory.

We discussed a few design ideas , but in the end, decided to keep it fairly simple and let the shape of this piece, with its beautiful detail in the middle shine.

The original clunky drawer handles have been replaced with pretty vintage knobs and the original door handles were refinished to match.

This piece had sentimental value as it came from my customers parent’s house. However, it had seen better days and didn’t match their décor so they asked me to give it a new look.

Overall, my customer wanted to lighten up this piece, so we chose a light neutral shade for the main colour. Whilst planning the design my customer also mentioned that she loves purple, and I instantly had the perfect colour in mind to add that much loved hint of purple, without darkening the overall piece. The trio of colours on this pieces made such a beautiful colour palette.

It was such a pleasure working on this piece and when I delivered it back, it was great to see it in its new home, where it sits proudly surrounded by a fab purple room.

The owner of this piece wanted it to have a completely new look, whilst keeping some of its gorgeous rustic character. 


This was the second part of a commission for this customer who asked me to update her bedroom furniture. The piece was painted in Champness by Fusion Mineral Paint, whilst the back was adorned with a gorgeous Moroccan tile effect stencil, finished in custom mixed colours to give it a truly unique look.

 

Finally, the original hardware was cleaned and look how shiny it is now!

When my customer contacted me to commission this piece, her words were ‘I have a challenge for you’ and she wasn’t joking. This table had been well used, the top had missing bits of veneer, the veneer on the drawers was peeling and the top had broken away from the legs.

Once fixed, the gorgeous Midnight Blue by Fusion Mineral Paint absolutely transformed this piece.

 

The ‘violin strings’ on the legs were cleaned to reveal that they were in fact brass and the feet, handles and drawer trims were painted to match.

Finally, my customer mentioned how she loves giraffes, so I went on the hunt for wallpaper and found this fab print for the inside of the drawers.

This is such a great example of an upcycle, it just needed a bit of TLC and can be enjoyed again for years to come.

This vintage chest of drawers has had many different looks over the years and this is its latest outfit.

I love how the owner was keen to use colour to make this a truly unique piece. The multi-layered paint finish shows glimpses of raspberry and olive popping through the gorgeous yellow. I finished the piece with hemp oil which enhanced this gorgeous colour combo and gave this piece a super smooth feel.

In time our tastes and lifestyles change, but that doesn’t mean we need throw out the old and replace with new. This piece is such a great example of that, having been once used as storage in the owners sons nursery, it now has a new place in their home and years of life left in it.
