So this is us..... Crazy Crafty Souls Sylwia & Mati, Husband & Wife team with side kicks Fiona & Harry our adorable Basset Hounds.
Our furniture painting journey started several years ago when Mati came home with a TV unit and wanted to paint it for us, at that time we couldn't find anything we liked! Well.... it didn't turn out great, but the effort was there. However, I was so intrigued with the idea that I decided to give it a go myself. And oh boy... there was nothing holding us back!
Over the years, we have invested many hours in learning painting techniques and acquired the skills necessary to work as professional upcyclers. We continuously try different paint brands and products making sure that we always use the best ones on the market, and offer the best possible service to our customers, whether it is a full commission or our own makeover design.
Our specialism is the reinvention of period vintage and retro furniture, finished in styles ranging from classical with a neutral colour palette to mid-century pieces given a funky and highly colourful look.
Whether using a bold graphic, geometric style, adding an exotic mandala pattern or bringing the natural wood patina of a heritage item back to life, we have a great eye for how best to celebrate the design spirit of a piece of period furniture for a new age.
Having featured in magazines, coming third place in a world wide furniture painting competition with General Finishes paint brand, makes us incredibly proud of 2018. Establishing our position in the industry as a recognised bespoke and professional furniture painting company.
My husband and I are a great team and I love the fact that we run our business together. Our passion for turning old pieces of furniture into something that puts a smile on customer’s face is never-ending!!
The love of home decor and our Basset Hounds have led us to expand our business. Creating handmade rustic key and leash hangers which have had great success serving customers all over the world.
