Upcycling furniture

It seems that shabby and rustic chic are here to stay. In fact the look seems to be getting stronger.

I think they particularly work as they are great at complementing other styles in your home. You don’t need an entire shabby chic room. In fact sometimes that can be a bit overkill and your home can start to look like a shop! But perhaps you have a fairly modern dining room? You could just add a little shabby chic by adapting a current piece of furniture and it can look quite effective.

At Andrew Batey & Sons, we love a upcycling furniture. It can bring a new lease of life to a piece you previously thought dated, tired or cheap! And all it takes is some imagination and some paint.

To upcycle something you no longer liked or perhaps a second-hand item you nabbed at a boot sale can be so much nicer than buying a repro item from an impersonal shop online. You’re creating something 100% original.

However, while we might have the inspiration, we don’t always have the time. That’s where we can help.
