My favourite buy

It has to be my butcher’s block, which I turned into a dresser by adding an old shelving unit. I then painted it in Farrow & Ball’s Clunch. It adds to the country-style feel in the kitchen.

My inspiration

I wanted to create one-off pieces of furniture for the entire house, so I went on a course to learn how to repaint and recycle old pieces. My interest started a few years ago when I couldn’t find any children’s furniture I liked. I love buying and transforming furniture that I pick up from auctions – you can take something that looks dated and turn it into a beautiful piece for your home.
