"...reach into the past and bring back what is good, what is beautiful, what is useful, what is lasting..."
Sister Parish 1910-1994Welcome to Home House Home Furniture, the home of PreLoved ReLoved Furniture.
The short story is, I adore vintage furniture. It is so well crafted, and although a piece may have a few nicks and dents, they are usually still strong and sturdy. Unfortunately so many beautiful pieces of furniture get sent to the shed or worse, the tip, because they look old fashioned or just a little worse for wear.
I find these discarded pieces and I refinish them to bring 20th Century Furniture into the 21st Century Home
My mantra is 'reducing waste one painted drawer and cupboard door at a time'
and I'd love it if you'd join in on the Furniture Refinishing Movement and save your own pieces from landfill. Not only will you be doing your small bit to help reduce waste, you will find that it is both fun and therapeutic to do. Painting is good for the mind & soul and, in this world of madness, that is something to hold on to.
I use a variety of paints and finishes but my brand of choice is Cornish Milk Mineral Paints which is why I chose to stock the range, along with my favourite finishing wax from White Bunny Naturals. Both these brands have an inspiring business ethos and their missions complement mine, trying to be more conscious about waste and pollutants. I am not an Eco Warrior and I'm still a buyer of a bit of Ikea, but I do think we can all make small changes that help the big picture.
