I can’t draw for toffee but I’ve always been a bit creative, I even made a friend’s Princess Diana style wedding dress when I was 20. Burda 7940 in case you’re wondering. 


I was also a frequent visitor to our local furniture auctions and with a bit of vision, tlc and elbow grease, managed to furnish a fair part of our first home with my ‘finds’. Little did I realise then that I was upcycling before it was a thing.  


Fast forward to 2018 and my passion for flirting with sad and dreary furniture was reignited and the Pheasant Plucker’s Wife was born. I'm attracted to well-built pieces that are unlucky in love and sadly out of fashion. There’s someone for everyone as my granny used to say so I've lavished love on them, transformed them with wallpaper and paint, protected the surfaces, added new legs, handles or whatever is needed to give them another run for their money. I specialise in decoupage, with an unashamed love of William Morris print but but I'm fickle too. I might be in a mid-century modern mood on Monday, William Morris on Wednesday or Art Deco on Friday.  It depends on the piece and the conversation we have.


We hope you like what you see. If you have a piece of furniture that you’d like reimagined please get in touch. I'm sure there's bound to be life in the old boy or girl yet!
