A Cabinet Worthy of Your Vote

I've recently been working on upcycling an old television cabinet into a trendy and stylish drinks cabinet. Drinks cabinets have a chequered, interesting history in the world of furniture - if any a piece of furniture could talk to tell a tale! Drinks cabinets are synonymous with 1970's and 80's middle class England where, following... Continue Reading →

Patience is a golden virtue

Towards the end of 2018 I got some work in that was exciting and different, but never have I had a commission that has caused me such an emotional rollercoaster. Don't get me wrong, the ultimate resulting emotion was one of joy and pride, particularly when my lovely client sent me lots of beautiful photos... Continue Reading →

Take a seat….!

Somebody once mentioned a little fact about me, apparently all I ever post on Social Media are pictures of chairs!  I wasn't told that directly to my face, but it was an observation made by one acquaintance to another and the comment made its way back to me.  Hmmm, I pondered whether that was actually...

My Colour of the Month – Gold

OK, so with it being the silly season and everyone doing all things festive I'm guessing the only decorating most people are doing right now is that of the tree, which would make either green or red very obvious colour choices for my Colour of the Month.  However, I've recently been involved with a commission...
