We are a husband and wife team and are living in Sandbach Cheshire we have a grown up family. We have a passion for restoring old furniture that we source from all around the U.K . We also make furniture like dressers, tables, toy boxes etc  from reclaimed wood using traditional woodworking methods where possible,  Alan works his magic on the pieces which are brought back to life and ready for painting, Julia now takes over in the paint shop and performs her magic taking the old paint/varnish off and giving it two coats of primer/undercoat and two coats of top coat and then using her experience to distress the furniture to give that lived look, we also take on commissions from customers to paint their furniture.

We bought a small 17th Century house in the South West of France in 2007 and on our visits have bought furniture to restore, along with monogrammed antique French linen and vintage kitchenalia. So now we find ourselves turning our passion into a fulltime business.
