Reloved Collectables

Reloved Collectables....................

are special items that I find in Second Hand stores, Charity Stores, Garage Sales, Markets and even sometrimes at Council Pick Ups!! Some items are also from display items I have used previously in shops or at home in photo shoots.

I LOVE restoring forgotten gems that have been left by their previous owners unloved and not wanted. It's so satisfiying seeing the before and after photos and looking at the journey each peice has taken to be "reloved" again. I use chalk paint, most of the time in white, but sometimes I may add a base coat of grey, ivory or beige ad if any uphostery is needed this will also be in a neutral tone.

I try to pick items that are still in great condition however sometimes a leg may need to be mended, a crack needing to be filled, or hooks need to be replaced, all these things needing to be done before that actual transformation. All pieces are either given a hard sand back or a good clean followed by a soft sand to start with, 3 coats of paint followed by a distress sand back and then finally a coat of wax to finish off. Upholstery can take a while to get right but its worth spending the extra time and nailing in studs take's pacience!  

Each piece will be unique in its look and style and have its own untold story, but once SOLD, will never be available agian.
