Questions and Answers
Furniture Q & A's
Can you paint anything?
Pretty much everything yes! Best long term results are achieved from using items that are made of wood however I have painted many veneered and mdf products and the finish is just as good. The only down side to non-wood products is that I am unable to sand them therefore long term durability is less effective. For safety reasons do not paint anything electrical.
Can I pick any colour?
Yes, just let me know the colour you would like and I would try my best to match it.
What type of paint do you use?
I use a good quality acrylic paint, generally with an eggshell finish. I do not use chalk paint (unless specifically asked by the client to do so).
Can I order something on that I have seen on the website?
Most items on the website have already been sold but you can request for a similar item to be completed. I do not have a shop 80% of my work is commission based, so just drop me a line with your requirements and I will be able to give you a quote together with a completion date.
Do you upholster?
Yes, but only for smaller items.
Do you deliver?
Generally I do not deliver, unless very local. All items are collected from my home address (TA100EZ). Many clients use 'A Man With A Van' there are many of them locally and their prices are very competitive (usually between £20 - £40). This would be the clients responsibility to arrange.
Can I get just one item re-painted?
Yes I do many individual pieces as well as multiple items.
How far in advance do I need to book?
Generally I work for up to 3 clients at a time so it is very unlikely you would need to wait longer than a week or two to book your item in.
How quick can I expect to get my item back?
Generally items are ready to be collected 2/3 days after drop off unless other arrangements have been made.
When do I need to pay?
All commissioned work would require a £20 deposit the remainder would be due upon collection.
