BACK TO THE FUTURE UPCYCLED

Professional upcycling since 2017

Mel Winship sources and upcycles vintage and retro furniture, turning every piece into a design statement. Each item of furniture is carefully sanded, primed and repaired if necessary, then refinished using paint from the Little Greene Paint Company A highly environmentally friendly paint, Little Greene is often specified by interior designers and considered to be a high-end decorating product so you can be assured of a durable surface to your Back to the Future Upcycled furniture.

 

As well as using quality paint, creating luxury upcycled and refinished furniture with a decoupaged finish requires use of high-grade designer wallpaper or original, high resolution printed images. Once a stunningly original surface design is in place, it requires a suitably robust finish so all Back to the Future Upcycled furniture is sealed for additional protection. With the benefit of each piece of furniture having an individual and unique provenance, Mel's refashioned pieces offer both a stunning, contemporary look for your home as well as the satisfaction of knowing that they have been created with lessening our impact on the environment in mind.
