Chalk painted, Upcycled Furniture in Downham Market and King's Lynn, Norfolk

 Welcome to Bluebell and Rosie! I'm Kate, a self-taught maker, based in the beautiful county of Norfolk. Before I had my children, I loved to sew. Any spare time I had, I would sit down and play around with fabrics to see what I could come up with.  After a while, I opened shops on Folksy and Etsy and sold a number of items (eg bunting, cushion covers, craft supplies) but then I had my children and spare time.... well, that becomes a bit sparse.  

 Life has a habit of ever changing and so, for now, other than a few bits, my fabric and sewing supplies are packed away until I can have my own proper work space again.  

In the meantime, I've discovered a love of chalk paint. I started off gradually by painting some decorative items for our home. Then, the opportunity came to sell them in a shop and I took the plunge to put a few small pieces in which, to my delight, sold within a few weeks.
As my children are getting older, whilst I have responsibilities to juggle, I'm able to spend more time painting and, I hope, start to make a small business from it.


Rescuing and Reviving Unloved Furniture

The furniture I sell is upcycled. Whilst it is in good condition, it is not new and as such you must expect imperfections (eg marks, knocks or scratches) which show its previous life and add character.  It may be that an item has had previous repairs that I am unaware of.  


Caring for your Furniture

All items are handpainted, one off individual pieces that are competitively priced. To care for your furniture, clean with a soft cloth, avoiding furniture polish and water. Avoid items which may scratch the surface and, where appropriate, use coasters or mats.
