MEET THE MAKER | LUCIE VASSILIOU
Hi there! I’m a Marlow based mum, upcycler, maker and furniture painter. Over the years, I have upcycled hundreds of furniture pieces in different styles. I’m passionate about furniture painting, interior decor, combining colours, working with different types of papers, stencils and decoupage. I love transforming old, dated furniture into desirable and elegant pieces and giving them a new lease of life. Upcycling and re-use is my motto! Any tired and seemingly useless and unwanted piece can be upcycled!
My story began around 2011 when I started painting my own furniture when my husband and I had just bought and moved in to our first house together back then, in Ealing, west London. My very first project was a nest of tables, which I had ‘shabby-chiced’. The furniture painting ‘bug’ immediately turned from curiosity to passion - I could not stop! I started reading books, watching online tutorials, trying out different techniques and paints, attending a few short courses. After eventually running out of space in my own house, I decided to carry on searching for vintage pieces to upcycle and revamp, and sell on to others. And so, my business - L’AtelierLucie - had slowly started making its first baby steps out of our spare bedroom, and became my new ‘me’.
I get a buzz out of finding and working with old, vintage pieces of furniture, breathing new life back into them and then finding them a new home. I would love to hear from you if you have a piece of furniture that is crying out for a new look and lease of life. I accept furniture painting commissions and offer free quote visits within 20 miles of Marlow, during which I can also consult my clients on which colours and brands to choose from a wide range of paints, such as Autentico, Little Greene, Neptune, and others. I can also source and then paint furniture for my clients, so if you’re looking for something specific, do give me a shout and I’ll do my best to find the perfect piece for you.
For all enquiries, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or message me on Facebook.
Always happy to help and thank you for visiting.
