So Coventry started as a hobby that became very addictive. I use only old furniture that has seen better days and often would have ended up in a junk shop or been discarded.

I carefully restore the furniture and use different chalk paints to bring new life to each item, whether it be for its original use or repurposed. Given the age and preloved history the dents and dings they have acquired over the years give many pieces their character and charm. Each piece is totally individual and most develop as I go.

I also take commissions if you have an item you can't quite part with or doesn't match your decor.
