Every day, way too much old furniture finds itself in the landfill. We all know its such a waste, but we don't know what else to do with it.

However, Polly Coulson has an answer for some of it. She loves interior decorating, especially refurbishing old furniture. Every one of her pieces are a special work of art and will be a much-loved treasure in any home.

Up-cycled fun furniture

She has painted furniture since she was 10 when she painted her cubby house with a seaside theme with chairs and table to match. As she grew up, her parents renovated four homes. She said this gave her exposure to decorating and the inspiration to have a lovely home herself.

She loves interior design especially when it incorporates updated and up-cycled pieces of fun furniture she has created. However, there is a limit to how much furniture a home can have.

Such a treasure

Her business, ATTIC came to life when her boys were small and she wanted a creative project. She picked up some vintage Australian furniture along with some matte paint and she has never stopped. "I love the transformation process and preventing items from going to landfill. I always do my best to be as "Green" as possible." said Polly.

She now uses Annie Sloan Decorative Chalk Paint products as they are non-toxic and eco-friendly. It is very user-friendly with a beautiful range of colours and no strong odour. "I greatly admire Annie Sloan for her style and skill plus she runs a fantastic company, only supplying small independent businesses" said Polly.

A great talking point

Polly has now been upcycling furniture professionally for six years and still gets the same excited feeling when she sees another piece come back to life. Everyday Polly posts new pieces on her Facebook page to admire and maybe buy for your home. Check them out.
