I started painting furniture last Christmas. And as I warn all my new customers now – it’s addictive and I have become and addict. With a house full of painted and upholstered chairs something had to be done so I put a plan together and have opened Sara Hughes Home Ltd.
This is no ordinary shop. There’s a workshop at the rear which during the week is covered with dust sheets and pieces of furniture at various stages of transformation. I now source from as far away as Yorkshire to find interesting and practical furniture which will be transformed with some love and creativity.
The front of the shop is packed with personally chosen accessories. I feel I have created a centre for customers to be inspired in to trying new projects.
