Get creative with our range of furniture!

Our Wood Works team have launched a range of small furniture pieces, which you can finish to suit your decor!

Above is a very small sample of the quaint pieces of 'unfinished' furniture, which are primed and ready for you to paint using the wonderful Annie Sloan chalk paints or even gloss paint.  Let your imagination run riot and transform these into mini features in your home. 
Do you have a furniture design idea for your own home?
Our Wood Works team still provide a 'bespoke' furniture service.  Simply contact our workshop with measurements and  design idea and we'll provide you with a quote within a couple of days.  Upon agreement, we can hand-build your own furniture within a realistic time frame - depending on the size and complexity of the build.  

Further details on all our furniture for your home or garden are available by contacting the workshop on 777 687 63 or emailing rvcs@roevalleyeducationforum.org
