Upcycling

The art of making the ordinary, extraordinary

Restoring, repairing and reusing furniture is my life, so it’s little wonder I’m a big fan of upcycling. 

Upcycling can vary wildly depending on the object and your goal. In its simplest form, it could mean giving your item a complete colour change. At its most dramatic, it could mean repurposing your item so it can be used in a way that’s completely out of context with what it was originally designed to be e.g. turning a vintage vaulting horse into a sofa and coffee table, a tennis racket into a mirror, or an old wooden pallet into a bed. 

You might have some good quality old (but not antique) furniture that’s become dated because the colour isn’t fashionable anymore. With my knowledge and skills, I can easily transform your item to give it a more contemporary look and feel. I can also make something brand new look really old and beautiful. 

If you have an item you think could be used in a different way, get in touch and we can brainstorm ideas. Looking forward to hearing from you. I do enjoy a creative challenge.
