Sometimes customers come to us wanting to brighten up a piece of furniture which they have had for several years. This is what this feature is all about the before
and after shots and story.
Q1 What is your name and where are you from? A1 Gill from Scotland
Q2 What products did you chose and why? A2 I asked Carol to choose me a random selection of shapes, sizes and colours for the project having sent a photo of the chest of drawers that I wanted to freshen up.
Q3 Upcycling, refurbishing are all current buzzwords and trends why did you decide to make over your piece of furniture? A3 I`ve had the chest of drawers for many years. It is in my teenage daughter`s bedroom and gradually over the years the pull part of several handles had come off and couldn`t be reattached. I thought that Liam`s cupboard knobs would look funky and update the whole appearance of the chest of drawers - and they did! On a practical basis the drawers can now be opened and closed easily again.
Q4 What do you think of the finished piece? A4 Love it!
Q5 What advice would you give to others considering a make over of their furniture? A5 A revamp can be a refresh! Create something a bit different from an item that has served you well instead of chucking it out and buying something brand new.
Thank you Gill, I have really enjoyed this feature and when a customer asks me to use my artistic license, I love it and I was like a child in a sweetie shop, with so many to choose from. One of the glass cupboard knobs I selected is really unusual, it is an amethyst blown piece, it is very striking and I knew Gill would love it, and she said it is now her favourite one. Well Gill we certainly had fun dressing this piece of furniture and I too love the end result.
