Its been a while!!

Hello its been a while : )

So we are in to the second month of 2018 after what felt like 3 months of January, and looking through my blog posts its been four months since I have written a blog : (

Although that's gonna change this year as I am determined to get at least one blog done per month just to keep you updated in all that is happening at Turnstyle13 I say you all thanks for reading mum (High five*).

Well its been a busy start to the year with a few jobs in the workshop as well as a few sales. Happy days : ) With more of our furniture getting the finishing touches and added to the shop very soon. So if you are looking for a piece of furniture that is a little different, a little unique, a little special then stay tuned and watch this space as these will be a one off and once they are gone they are gone!!!

I have also updated the stock page, instead of adding new pieces, I have took some away. I decided to do this as I really want to focus on turning these pieces of furniture into my magical creations. I have also been in talks with some amazing ladies about collaborations one of these ladies is the beautiful talented textile designer Beth Farmer, from B-line studios. We both have similar ideas on colours and styles. Exciting times ahead.

So this year my sister got me a bullet journal to get my life and business more organised, all I'm gonna say is wow!! if you look up some bullet journal videos or follow some bullet journal hashtags on Instagram they are amazing. But it does make your OCD and creativity go through the roof. So 2018 its definitely my year to be getting s**t done and shine.

                           Until march see you soon!!

Its been a while

Hello!! It has been a while :) and omg!!! so much has been happening at turnstyle13 HQ.

If you follow my social media pages, you will have seen that I have taken the leap of faith and gone self employed eeekk!!. (its not fully sunk in yet) Its something that I've been wanting to do for a long time and life is to short not to take risks and go for it... So I did.

I've not been keeping this blog and website up to date so that's all going to change, with a weekly blog on whats been happening, up-dated furniture that will be for sale and new stock that will be getting a make-over by us or maybe you if you see something you like, new products added to the shop with an offer of 10% off when you sign up to our mailing list - this will be to keep you updated with our blog and the first to know of any offers or new furniture available to buy.

Busy, busy, busy!!!

Hello folks,

Its been a bit busy for me (not complaining) : )

This week i got the keys, and moved into a new workshop aaaahhhh!!! excited                              still got a bit sort out and move about so should be settled in for Saturday.

Got two jobs to start this week for two lovely customers; the first is four country style dining chairs can't wait to show you what these will look like got some amazing bright colours for these. The second is a vintage dining table that's in need of some TLC and a new colour so this will be stripped back.

The cocktail chair is coming along nicely, finished the piping and buttons... just to finish applying the fabric, shes going to be a little cracker.

I picked up some more stock last week a little retro chest of drawers and a stunning vinyl to go with it, also a vintage dressing table got lots of ideas for this piece stay tuned for that.

Catch up!!

Hello I'm back!! :)

Missed last weeks blog entry but back this week with more jobs completed and new ones starting.

I recently finished a couch repair for a lovely customer in the west end, the couch was a modern style with the inside frame crumbling causing the metal foot to fall off. This involved building a small frame for inside to create strength to allow the foot to be re-attached, finished off with new bottom cloth.

I also completed the dining table to go with the six dining chairs from the previous week. This extending table needed to be colour matched, for this the full table was scraped back and stained to blend in with the colour already on the legs. The table was then finished off with a wax oil in clear satin.

I've started working on two of my own pieces - The retro cocktail chair & A two seater mid century Parker knoll got amazing fabrics for these pieces - stay tuned for them they will be available to buy. (Hoping to get a shop on the website this week)

Also got some lovely new stock coming cant wait to show you. :)

Whats new!!


So I've got a few things that's been happening and few things coming up!! I'll try to keep it short... I'll try. :)

Last week I had two jobs on, the first job started at the circus, no not the ring master or the trapeze or even a clown. I had been asked to repair some scratches on some table tops, after being colour matched and stained the tops were polished and waxed. After finishing at the circus it was on to the second job, this involved repairing and restoring six dining chairs these were in need of some touch up with colour and finished to a high shine with a lovely french polish. Dropped off to happy customer, Happy days.

I'm now a stockist of the beautiful fabric from Jess & Jules, I can't wait to start using their stunning fabrics, having ordered the gorgeous blue triangles & diamonds and tropicalia for some bespoke custom pieces coming soon... stay tuned!!!

In the coming week I will be adding a shop section to my website as well as to my Facebook page, for this I will be having a 10% off on selected items with also lots of new pieces being added.. eeekk!! excited
