Creating stylish furniture with decoupage, designer prints and paints

Hi!  My name's Michele Titchen and I'm the owner of 'The Pheasant Plucker's Wife'.  We specialise in decoupaged furniture, with an unashamed love of William Morris prints and other designers and we only use premium products. Our favourite paints are Fusion Mineral Paint, Fleur and Little Greene. Our work has been featured in several magazines and has been selected by designer Matthew Williamson in his furniture picks edit for Vinterior. We're based in Welwyn in Hertfordshire but we can deliver nationwide for a competitive fee using our trusted couriers.

Over 50% of our work is bespoke commissions and we can either work with our clients to restyle their own furniture, or we can source the perfect piece for your home.  Alternatively, take a look at our 'naked pieces' section on the website. We carry a small amount of stock that we believe has good bones and the potential to transform into stunning pieces.

I've been restyling furniture professionally for over three years, although my love of furniture and textiles goes back as far as I can remember. I'm not embarrassed to tell you that I'm a fan of 'brown' furniture. Only the solid, well-built stuff of course, and I'm a sucker for a dovetail joint and good brass hardware.  It's fair to say that here at The Pheasant Plucker's wife we're a bit like a dating agency for overlooked furniture that needs to feel the love again.  There’s someone for everyone as my granny used to say, so we lavish love on them, decoupage them with designer wallpaper and paint, protect the surfaces with layers of clear varnish and add new legs, handles or whatever is needed to suit their new look. We hope you like what you see. If you have a piece of furniture that you’d like us to restyle please get in touch. If you haven't seen the perfect piece then why not let us source for you.  After all, you'll hopefully be spending a long time together so we want to get it right!
