Hello!  My name's Michele and I'm the owner of 'The Pheasant Plucker's Wife'.  


Since launching the Pheasant Plucker's Wife in 2018 I've been combining my love of textiles (especially William Morris prints) with restyling vintage furniture, specialising in decoupage.


We have our own finished pieces available to buy and a page of 'naked pieces' that are also available to commission. Can't see the right piece?, don't worry - Over 50% of our work is bespoke commission and we can work with you to create the perfect piece for your home. We can transform your own furniture or source something to fit your brief. After all, you'll hopefully be spending a lot of time together so we want to get it right!


Upcycling is all about being sustainable. We're literally saving good furniture from being thrown away and we try to translate this ethos in the materials we use.  Our paints have low VOCs (the smelly compounds you find in non-water based paints) and we also champion 'buying British'. Luckily for us the majority of our vintage furniture was made in Britain. It might be 'brown furniture but it's solid and well-built with dovetail joints and brass hardware, and we love it. A lot of the designer wallpapers we use are also printed in the UK.

Our work has been featured in several magazines and we were thrilled when an upcycled sideboard we decoupaged in a William Morris design was selected by designer Matthew Williamson in his furniture picks edit for Vinterior.

We're based in Welwyn in Hertfordshire and we can deliver nationwide for a competitive fee using our trusted couriers.
