To achieve a truly modern feel to any piece of furniture takes time and commitment. The idea of shabby chic to many works alongside the idea of a 'quick fix' for those outdated items - unfortunately this is not the case.
Once you have sourced the piece, then comes the planning/making process. Picking the colour to suit the 'personality' of the piece, sanding back worn out surfaces, repairing damaged areas, several coats perhaps in different colours, more sanding and then sealing!
...And after all that, things still may not turn out quite how you'd hoped - in that case, it's often back to the drawing board.
In this section you'll find pictures of the making process, some of the finished articles can be found for sale on the 'Items For Sale' page.
