Hello! I'm Catherine. Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my site.
I'm a soon to be 38 year old wife and mother. Another lifetime ago I was a Human Resources Manager, but I gave it up to stay at home with my beautiful girl Emma (4) and my little man Harry (2). We live on the Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia.
I originally started this blog to record my crafty and DIY endeavours. Since then, the places it's led me to have me endlessly grateful and forever inspired. I love sharing these interests with others; I've found amazing people, great talent and inspiring projects... and now I look forward to hearing from you!
Paisley VintageI started my business, Paisley Vintage after much encouragement from family and friends. Through Paisley Vintage I give tired furniture a new lease on life by combining vintage style and glamour with modern colour and texture.
No two pieces are the same, and each has a personality all of its own. I search estate sales,auctions, flea markets, junk piles and op shops, and restore, re-purpose and refinish so I can offer unique pieces that are functional, beautiful and reasonably price.
I also offer a custom service for clients who would like a makeover for their existing furniture.
I have a long held passion for upcycling furniture, and feel excited by being able to find a basic, classic piece, in whatever condition, saving it from landfill and renovating it to be something impressive, robust and on-of-a-kind. I turned my hobby into a business two years ago.
