Designed for you with care... Renovated by me with love... Cherished by you forever!
I love the process of collaborating with my customers, it's an honour being welcomed into their homes! Every customer has a different story and it makes my job so much fun as I never create the same design twice.
... maybe you have an heirloom that you want to restore and update so that it fits into your home
... maybe you have some pieces of practical, solid furniture that just don't express your style anymore
... maybe you haven't found the right piece yet and want me to source it for you!
The service is as bespoke as the furniture so I can definitely help!
What do you get in a piece of bespoke painted furniture from me?
With Not Too Shabby by Charlotte you get the creative input of an experienced furniture designer, the friendly one to one service of a small business and the professionalism of a large company
I take great pride in the quality of my service and of my finished pieces
Wanna see some examples?
Isn't the singer sewing table just a beautiful unique dressing table? My customer Jade wanted this piece painting to match the 2 sets of drawers and bedside tables I'd previously painted for her...each piece has its own unique design but they compliment each other so well!
Jade left me such a lovely review on fb
'Simply put Charlotte is amazing. She transformed my bedroom furniture and its better than I could have imagined. From the level of detail and time spent planning the design, colours and handles, she puts so much love and creativity into every piece she does. Thank you once again, I am in love with it all ❤️' - Jade (Stapleford)
I loved creating this wardrobe design! I was given free reign, my only brief to create something that nobody else would have...
I think we succeeded!
I have a real thing for ombre! I just love the technique! This was my first ombre commission and since then I've done so many, each one bespoke and designed for each specific customer.
Dining sets are such an important part of the home and I've refinished so many of them! They're so versatile!
Some pieces of furniture can make a real statement! I really do love green!
This inherited console table was dark and dated. I layered Little Lamb, glaze and light distressing for an authentic look that now fits into my customer's home.
This custom mixed shade and blended effect was painted to fit in with my client's industrial farmhouse aesthetic
Even the smallest piece of furniture can be special! This colour is called Bayberry and its gorgeous!
I love creating truly unique pieces for my customers, you deserve something one of a kind that brings you joy! Paint pours are so fantastic, the technique and colours here resemble marble
Have you ever thought of transforming that tired old fireplace? I've painted so many, here's beautiful vintage example in Enchanted Echinacea
Oh hello faded grandeur! This piece is soft, romantic and the texture brought character to this huge bedroom.
This was the third commission I painted for a busy mum who wanted a grey dressing table with some old school glamour, it's a place to start the day feeling spoilt!
Ash is our darkest charcoal shade and is a firm favourite with my customers, it's rich, crisp and sophisticated.
Why not get it touch? I look forward to hearing about your project
