"Big Bang Theory - The Start Of Something New..."

"Like most great ventures, this one started with a bang - an idea - a 'eureka' moment, when I just knewthis was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life....  We've all have moments like that, when it just 'feels right...' And this felt more than right...
I've always had a love affair with painted French furniture.... There is something about it that is comforting & mellow... I was talking with a gorgeous client over the weekend and she asked why I called the business 'Fredericks Furniture??' A lot of you have asked me that, and indeed a lot turn up expecting to see a little old balding man called 'Frederick' refinishing pieces...
The business is named after my beloved Grandfather... He was a true gentleman - the kindest soul with a childlike quality that never dissipated, and boy, could he tell a story!! He was a father figure to me, always making me feel safe & loved - and what more could a child ask for!!
Yes, I could have chosen a 'pretty' French name, but I didn't want that... I wanted it to be founded on something that meant something to me and to resonate with the sheer joy of doing something I love... I wanted to feel like Fredericks gave me a big 'hug' every time I picked up the paint brush... And that is what I have....
I want to say a MASSIVE 'THANK YOU' to everybody who has supported me, not only by purchasing my furniture, but your kind & witty words you send me daily... You all motivate & encourage me in ways you don't realise, and for that I am very grateful....
This page is the start of a new venture... I'm not quite sure what will be posted - I'll let it evolve naturally... But what I do know is that I want you to be a part of this with me - something we can share together... By all means, I want to hear your ideas and 'eureka' thoughts!! I'm thinking DIY tutorials, ideas for renovating, etc.... But again, I am getting ahead of myself!! Don't be shy - drop me a line!!"
