Welcome to Vintage Furniture Revivals

From “boring to adoring” , “Rehab to Fab”…..
I am passionate about transforming boring, old & forgotten furniture into something stunning & beautiful !!

Meet The Artist

Hi, my name is Delna — I am mum to 2 very differently creative boys, my older 18 yr old studies law & plays cricket at a premier level & my 13yr old is deep into drama & performing. I have always been on the craftsy, artistic side & refinishing furniture is a great way to express that love!!
I am passionate about transforming boring, old & forgotten furniture into something stunning & beautiful !! I love transforming antique & vintage furniture into something new & exhilarating with the influence of the old world, timeworn look for somebody’s beautiful home.
It is not about painting furniture but about creating something really beautiful, something really bespoke by using hand carved furniture of solid Mahogany or Oak & creating real beauty for your home. Furniture is a great canvas for me to bring your personality to & finish it exactly how you want me to. This is not something that you could go out & buy, these are not factory produced pieces but one-off unique pieces you won’t find elsewhere. Each piece is painted, restored & finished meticulously to create unique furniture that will be the centrepiece in your home.
Please Note furniture refurbished by me are one-off vintage or antique pieces. Due to the age of some of the pieces, there will be minor flaws, which form part of the character and charm of the piece. These unique elements are no seen as flaws but stories of a world well-traveled & a life well loved!!

I purchased a large dresser for our daughter for Christmas and it is amazing. Out daughter loves it and now has a piece she will keep for her life time. Delna was wonderful to deal with and sorted out shipping to our home at short notice and in time for Xmas. The dresser is beautifully finished and so solid. Thank you

Taking Care of Your Painted Furniture

Furniture care is often overlooked and/or treated as an afterthought. We get used to our daily routines and cleaning practices and don’t necessarily think about how we are caring for our painted furniture. The Wax will be dry to the touch very quickly but take longer to harden or ‘cure‘. The ‘curing’ process can take 5 – 21 days depending on ambient temperature. During that time take extra care & use placemats to avoid scratching the surface
