As mentioned in last week’s blog post, our ethos focuses on people and showcasing their talents. Therefore, we are delighted to showcase our super talented furniture up-cycler, Amy Gould at Tickety Boo.
A new style
When we were planning the re-styling into ‘Spot’, we were recommended to use Amy. The timeframe was very tight, but it was so much fun and Amy delivered excellent results.
Amy has always loved arts and crafts and her practical and creative side was used to good use. Until recently, her career choice was in the retail and fashion sector. She was able to showcase her talents for managing people and keep her hand in too on the more practical side of advising on dressing stores to look as beautifully appealing as possible.
Amy loved re-cycling the bedroom furniture she already had for the children’s rooms and creating something eye catching and original. Friends and family commented on how spectacular her effects were and so spurred on, she bought some second hand charity shop furniture pieces. She booked herself onto a painting course and then she got to work turning unloved furniture pieces into original pieces ready to be re-loved and cherished once more.
Colours and creativity
Amy takes inspiration from current interior trends, as well as her forest and seashore surroundings, but her passion is colour. She aims is to create statement pieces of furniture that are talking points and the focal feature of people’s homes.
What starts off as a tired and dusty piece of furniture, often unloved and on its way to the tip or charity shop, can be revived into something beautiful. And to be treasured and loved all over again.
Amy says that the best bit of every project is seeing her client’s face light up when she delivers the piece back. She thinks that bit is priceless!
Hundreds of people have now seen her painted pieces at ‘Spot’ and we are delighted that Amy was happy to go crazy with her paints with us!
Amy has an online store as well as painting pieces to order. Her pieces can be seen at ‘Spot’, as well as a few lovely photos here of what magic she paints!
Thank you Amy for being part of the ‘Spot’ team.
Until our next showcase
