Address:
Gallowhill Cottage, Glenlivet AB37 9DL
Description:

...the home of upcycled furniture.

 

In a world where fashions change, it is all too easy to discard our old furniture and buy a new swanky modern piece. Yet how many of us ever stop to consider the alternatives. I confess I have loved good solid furniture for as long as I remember. I grew up with old pieces all around me - I saw Mum paint them all in the late 70s/early 80s when wood went right out of fashion. Not ten years later I saw the same pieces stripped back to their original state and waxed or varnished. And here we are again, breathing new life back into the same items.

 

Except time has moved on now. Not so much the nasty chemical dipping which leaves our wood pieces a little weaker each time. Instead product technology has found ways to preserve and build. I like to think of it as giving them a new set of clothes which they feel so very fabulous in.

 

I know, I am a romantic...

 

What is really interesting though, is such treatments are no longer reserved for antiques or retro items. Indeed, even a piece just a few years old already has memories. So why throw it out? That’s where I come in. Here at my Artisan Bothy I am busy making new clothes for pieces which all have a story to tell. Beautiful chalk painted furniture - vintage or modern. Next time you are decorating and feel the need to “skip” or marketplace your unwanted furniture STOP! Look at it in a new light? Consider the possibilities. It really is bespoke. You can choose your colours - I can even blend and pick out the features you love, swap out the bits you hate (within reason). It’s my passion.

 

I also have occasional items for sale here at the Bothy (viewing is strictly by appointment). Sale days will be announced in advance or keep a “like” on our Facebook page (and engage often) to be ahead of the queue.
