I’ll start by telling you a bit about myself! I’m Laura, a short blonde who loves a bit of red lippy. I have a background in Fashion Retail and Visual Merchandising while dreaming of having my own business upcycling furniture; so in 2018 I decided to give my dream a shot and Earls House was born! My Grandad was an antiques dealer, my Dad still is and my Uncle restores antiques, so safe to say working with things of old runs in the blood. Buying something that is brand spanking new doesn’t really appeal to me; I love the story, the history and the character of all things vintage and antique. Where some people will see scratches, scuffs, chips or dents, I like to see them more as a part of the story just how we have scars, stretch marks, wrinkles or cellulite! One man’s trash is another man’s (or woman’s) treasure!
I’ve used quite a few different paints however I now only use Fusion Mineral as it has the best quality. It has zero VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds), it’s odourless, UV resistant, waterproof and has a gorgeous, smooth, matte finish. So for those who are eco conscious, this is one of the best furniture paints about.
If you do have an old piece of furniture knocking about the house, in the attic or garage and you’re unsure what to do with it, feel free to get in touch so we can upcycle it to your own tastes and give it a new lease of life.
Being a small business, you’ll get a personal, interactive service that will work for you. We value our new customers just as much as our loyal ones, it’s all about that one to one service, building a relationship – not being passed from pillar to post before speaking or emailing a random Joe Bloggs.
If you have any feedback or questions, feel free to get in touch – we would love to hear from you!
