Some furniture art companies blow their own trumpets. Here at Gillie’s Paraphernalia, we let our clients do the talking. Find out what they have to say about us.
Emma from Bognor Regis
I just want to thank you and say how much I enjoyed the decoupage work shop with you. It was very relaxed and I learnt so much. Your knowledge and kindness made me feel at ease. I came away and could not wait to get started. I would recommend you to anyone that has an interest in this. Inviting me into your home for lunch was so lovely too. Thank you so much, you have really inspired me.
Helen from West Sussex
I asked Gillie to create something vibrant in glass for my friend’s special birthday. I provided her with a brief – colours, images and various other bits and pieces I knew my friend would like. The bowl Gillie produced was so stunning and so right, I have now asked her to design several more pieces and one of them is definitely for me.
Hugo from Storrington, West Sussex
My bedside table is absolutely stunning! From a dull, insignificant little drawer unit you have created a bright and original little work of art. The rich colours and arty paper inlays really lift the room. I could never have imagined such a change.
Mary from Chichester
After taking time out to be a full time mum, I’d been looking to get back to my artistic roots. Gillie gave me the guidance and support to try chalk painting. I’ve now decorated several pieces of furniture and I truly love my new hobby. I’m now trying bolder colours, designs and decoupage. I know I can rely on Gillie for advice and encouragement. She has been such an inspiration, her work is fantastic and it gives me so many ideas. Colour is intrinsic to Gillie’s style, her use of vibrant colours is her trademark and I’m always excited to see what she’ll produce next.
Sarah from Tunbridge Wells, Kent
I was given an old dining room table and 4 chairs which didn’t match any of the other furniture in my house. Rather than throw out these perfectly good bits of furniture I commissioned Gillie. She was able to advise on different colour and finish options to work with my existing furniture, and was great at coming up with ideas which would never have occurred to me! I now have beautiful and unique furniture, all thanks to Gillies eye for design, care and attention to detail. I would definitely use her services again.
Andrew from East Finchley, London
I commissioned Gillie to revamp an old side table that was in need of either some TLC or throwing out. Gillie was able to advise on adding some quirk to my home while ensuring that it blended in well at home. I now have a fantastic and chic piece of furniture that is unrecognisable to the eyesore that it was before Gillie added her magic touch. I’ll be using her again to breathe new life into my home. Thank you!
Julie from Horsham, West Sussex
The cabinet you transformed now has pride of place in my dining room and I adore it. The unit belonged to my parents and had great sentimental value. I could not bear to part with it but I never really liked it as it was so dark and dreary. Your creative suggestions as to how it could be transformed were amazing – I am so glad I gave you carte blanche to work your magic.
