Introduction Hi! I am Karen, a work-from-home mum of two with a rather large passion (obsession) for painting furniture. I am thrilled to have turned this into my business and my brand, Restyled Vintage. I specialise in upcycling tired, outdated, (and sometimes unloved) items of furniture by hand-painting them in a french country-shabby chic style, transforming them into gorgeous and unique items for your home and/or workspace. I also enjoy redesigning and re-purposing unloved items, usually with a mixture of paint and new upholstery - often using oilcloth. I love pottering around to create unique home decor items from fabrics...you never know what I'll come up with next! My items are available for sale locally at French country homewares and vintage store, La'Bella Petite Boutique at 2 Commerce St, Taree NSW.
