Fifi’s Fancy Furniture was created to indulge my passion for all things beautiful. It was a way of combining my life long interest in design, furniture, colour, texture, up-cycling, recycling and revamping furniture and artefacts that would sit well in traditional or contemporary settings alike.
For it to work for me it has to be aesthetically pleasing, functional and/or of sentimental attachment to sit well in my world.
My style is chic rather than shabby, eclectic and quirky, but above all it has to be well painted and finished to a high standard so that the piece will stand the test of time. I get completely absorbed in each piece that I do relishing in the transformation process.
We are official stockist of the fabulous Frenchic Furniture Paint. I use a range of materials, including chalk and oil based paints , coloured waxes and metal leaf products. We now have a brand new range of Al Fresco Colurs with lovely colours in stock. Paint Range
We run Furniture Painting Courses at the shop, which are an intimate affair with usually only 3 people at a time. We do the Beginner’s course in which you will paint a small item of your choice that you bring along. We do Advanced courses in which you will take away a panel on which you will have tried out various different paint techniques. See our Paint Courses page. Paint Courses
Fifi – My passion is all things aesthetic and creative. I have always enjoyed collecting pretty or unusual furniture. I love color and using it in the form of paint to up-cycle, revamp and transform pieces using various methods. I completely lose myself when I am immersed in the processes. I love the excitement of sourcing new pieces, through auctions, charity shops, friends and relatives. I do commissions for clients and offer one to one tutorials/classes. I am very lucky that I can dedicate myself to the creative process while my sister takes care of all the social media.
Social Media Manager and Accounts Administrator. I have no clue about painting furniture but I love social media so we make a good team. It is great working with Fifi because she provides me with excellent regular content and is the perfect client. Nowadays small businesses need to have some presence in social networks to take advantage of the excellent marketing potential.
