Taking Unloved Furniture
from Beast to Beauty
Upcycling Furniture doesn’t have to be hard or take forever
It’s about knowing the process and where to spend your time
Wanting to flip a piece but simply don’t know where to start
Thinking of taking on a large product but are worried about the time involved
Know you want to upcycle a piece of furniture but not sure what to do with it
Have a piece of furniture that does the job but just isn’t your style anymore
Prefer vintage furniture but don’t like the dark varnish finish
If any of these sound familiar, we can help!
I’m a Midlands based mum of 2 with 10 years marketing experience, including working as a Marketing Director with international brands. When the company was sold I was made redundant and decided to spend some time with my young family.
When we came to decorate our home I simply couldn’t find any furniture that worked for us, the space we had and that matched our style.
One evening while doom scrolling through Facebook I found a dressing table the perfect size for my daughters room, it was £10 and had truly seen better days, but just needed a little love. My husband was sent to collect it the next morning and with a little trial and error, a lot of time and a few tears we had the perfect piece for our daughters room that’s still used every day.
5 years on and I'm still upcycling furniture, there have been some disasters, some mistakes and a whole lot of learning involved, but over time I’ve perfected the art, found my style and learnt how to create perfect pieces for homes all over the UK.
If I’m not flipping furniture I can generally be found knee deep in baking or crafts with my 2 children.

Why Perfect Pieces works
Quite often, if something seems to big a job, we simply don’t start it. In perfect pieces we break down upcycling your piece into small manageable easy to complete modules. That way ensures you fully understand each section, why we’re doing it and the benefit and get it completed before moving onto the next module
No Nonsense Talk
We’ve all done courses where things have been overcomplicated or they overly use industry terms. I don’t want that, I want you to talk away with a perfect piece, that means delivery you a course you understand and enjoy, no fluffing up what we’re doing, its simple no nonsense training to help you create something amazing.
Ive been in the industry for over 5 years now and have learnt a lot and want to share this with you. I understand where problems occur and issues arise so we can avoid them saving you valuable time and money.
