The copper craze continues and I am still very much in love with it! Lots of copper or rose gold in furniture, homeware, lighting, jewellery and fashion.
Companies like Made.com and Oliver Bonas, both of which I am a huge fan, boast fantastic ranges of all of the above. The furniture has a strong Scandinavian influence with clean lines, spindly legs and either very bold or muted colours.
I’ve taken influence from this and combined a pastel pink and some copper spray paint to upcycle this little old unloved coffee table. I hope you like it!

I’m happy to report that since opening my shop I have been too busy to write any updates!
But after three weeks, I thought it was about time, so here I am.
I won’t lie, August was not the best month to open a shop. It’s holiday season, the Craft Centre is next door to a primary school and relies a great deal on footfall from mums and dads. Additionally our café has been closed for two weeks for a refurbishment.
School holidays are almost over AND the café reopened on Thursday last week. After a fantastic first day – the sun shone and the terrace was full of people enjoying a drink under dazzling blue skies – the girls were actually turning people away on the Friday, because there were no free tables!
We’re thrilled to bits for them and needless to say, this can only have a positive effect on our businesses.
In the meantime, I’ve had several commissions and paint sales aren’t bad, considering not many people know I’m here yet!
There are several fantastic second hand furniture shops in Nuneaton and surrounding areas, and a couple of the shop managers have been telling their customers about me, which is brilliant.
My shop is pretty tiny so I’m also building up stocks of smaller items. It’s the perfect way of having a play with different colours, plus gift-buying season is just around the corner… (I refuse to mention the C word just yet 😉
