I provide a wide range of services here at Not Too Shabby to suit customers individual needs. Whether it be a simple paint job, a bit of upholstery or something a little more unusual, I can work with you to produce something beautiful and truly unique.
My skills are in no way restricted to what you see here - I love to take on new projects at my customers request.
Viewings and consultations are by appointment and can be arranged via email or phone. I am based in Bonnybridge which is easily accessible to many places in Central Scotland.
what we do
This is by far my most popular service. Do you perhaps have an old piece of furniture that you have inherited or has been a potential project of your own that you just haven't had time to start? Maybe some good quality pine that doesn't match your decor any longer? ENTER CLAIRE!! (That's me).
I will take your existing furniture and chat through your ideas and desired colour theme to bring your piece(s) bang up to date at a fraction of the price of buying new. You can choose a shade straight from the Annie Sloan colour chart or I can mix a bespoke shade for you to really nail the overall finish you are looking for.
This is extremely handy for those of you who know what you are looking for but either can't seem to find it or don't have the time/means necessary to scour charity shops or Gumtree!
I can take note of which item(s) of furniture you are looking for, along with any size restrictions you may have and keep an eye out until I find something suitable for your specific needs. At that point we would discuss colours and finishes to get you the perfect piece of furniture for your home.
One of my favourite things to do is make bottle lamps, gin proving most popular but I can use any bottle and have also done rum, whiskey, vodka and prosecco in the past. Shades come plain as standard or I also do handmade shades in any fabric.
I use two different kinds of electrical parts depending on your budget. The standard parts are white plastic with the cable coming from the top/outside of the bottle and the more expensive parts are metal with the cable coming through a small hole in the back/bottom of the bottle. Both are fully compliant with electrical safety.
Prices start from £33 with a shade or from £25 without.
I do provide a collection and delivery service that I can quote for on request but for larger orders I outsource to a fully licensed and insured removals company. These guys take great care in moving and transporting all items of furniture and have always proved professional in the 3-4 years I have used them for moving all of my precious cargo!
You can contact them directly or I can arrange this for you if you provide me with some information required for a quote.
