Introduction to my website.Hi, I wanted to introduce myself first and share some projects I have done in 2015.
My name is Yulia and I am passionate about restoring and painting furniture and other interior décor items, which were given up, neglected, unwanted, and, sometimes, left in unbearable silence on the kerbside to wait for the crunch of a garbage truck to devour a perfectly functional piece of history.
My heart sink’s every time I see this ridiculous waste. I am happy to rescue, restore and paint something beautiful every time I get a chance.
I have been restoring furniture for about 1.5 years but I haven’t been able to dedicate as much time as I would like to it, as my 2 beautiful daughters Maria (5 years old) and Daria (2 years old) were quite young and needed a lot of my attention. I have a bit more time on my hands now and I am steadily building a portfolio of work, while building my skills. I am greatly enjoying this process.
I probably got this love and passion for restoration and DIY from my grandpa, who was constantly planning & building something in his workshop & where I was surrounded by all his amazing a little rusty tools - I jealously observed and secretly touched and explored them, when my grandfather was not around.
Hence, with a passion for creating something new out of something old, plus love for painting, inspired by other beautiful people, who share my passion, with environment in mind I would like to present this site and share my experiences with those, who are on the same boat as me: sailing in the ocean of creativity, giving longevity to abandoned vintage pieces and gaining the satisfaction & joy from uncovering their graceful beauty.
Please feel free to contact me, if you would like to buy some of my pieces, or if you have piece of furniture that needs to be restored and painted.
And please don’t hesitate to buy vintage pieces of furniture and encourage your friends to do so, as they are generally built more robustly and have a timeless beauty compared to modern furniture. It is better for the planet as well and us – “Recyclers”.
My Studio is based in Merrylands, NSW, AUSTRALIA
