how we work

We’ll transform your own piece

You’ve inherited a treasured family heirloom that just feels too ‘heavy’ for your home. Or you’ve found an amazing old chair by the side of the road. Or your favourite table has sustained years of sun damage. Our favourite things to hear!

Please get in touch so we can discuss it with you.



Send us images and measurements of the piece, plus ideas of what you’d like (if you have any). It can help to receive images of other pieces, places or things you find that capture the look and feel that you are after.

It can also help to see images of your home and where your finished piece will be situated. Depending on your location, we can arrange for an in-house consultation.

We are able to help you decide on colours, finish, art techniques and more. We are skilled and versatile painters, so we are able to adapt our work to suit your preferences.

We also offer a custom colour mixing service, and can provide colour samples upon request.

If you are local, we can arrange to collect your piece for a reasonable fee, or you can deliver direct to shed eleven in St Ives.  If your piece is too large or awkward to move, we may be able to come to you to work our magic.


Once we’ve assessed your furniture and requirements, we’ll send you a ball-park quote to complete the piece. If you decide to go ahead, we’ll work closely with you throughout the process to ensure you get exactly what you are after.

let us source a piece for you

If you’ve got an idea in mind of something that you would like, but haven’t found your own, we can source the perfect piece for you. Simply let us know what you have in mind and we’ll track it down. Fossicking through second-hand markets is one of our favourite things to do and there’s something uniquely satisfying about matching an old piece of furniture with a thrilled new owner.
