My attention is in the detail, my passion is in the paint, my care is in the customer xx

Hello, I'm Caroline from Godfrey's Ear
Firstly, I would like to thank you so much for visiting my website. As a small business owner this really means a lot to me.
Please feel free to browse around, but if you need to ask a question please don’t hesitate to reach out to me: I am always happy to help you.

Here is a little more about what I do:

  • I am a down-to-earth, slightly crazy, obsessed but professional furniture painter who just loves to restyle and upcycle vintage furniture.
    I create beautiful and bespoke pieces for today’s homes. Each piece is given a new look, with its own individual personality, in preparation to start a new life in a new home and to be loved again... as a vintage piece truly deserves.
    Shop for restyled furniture.
  • I offer a restyling service for your furniture too.
    I can offer guidance on colours and decorative finishes, and recommend the best and most suitable products for the piece and for its purpose. I will work with you every step of the way, helping you to visualise your furniture's journey of transformation, to suit your taste, style and décor. A piece of furniture in your home is an extension of your personality, the same as the clothes you wear or the style of your hair.
    Restyling your furniture gives you a unique statement piece that is full of your personality, and that's something you just can't buy in a high street store.
    Start your restyling journey
  • I offer painting workshops in my studio, which is set in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. It's a perfect retreat and a relaxed environment to learn a new skill and to meet new friends.
    People are often very nervous when they first arrive: there is naturally apprehension when going to a new place, learning a new skill and not knowing who else is going to be there. Well, we start by putting the kettle on and having a good old natter. People soon settle in and start to relax; in fact, by the end of the day they often don't want to leave! But of course you can always come back: you will always be welcome.
    Learn more about my workshops.
  • Don't get me started on the paints: I'm like a kid in a candy store when it comes to paint and all the finishes and tools!
    All the products I sell are the products that I use myself when restyling and upcycling furniture in my Derbyshire studio.
    These are all high-quality furniture paints and products that I sell: Annabell Duke, Fleur and Dixie Belle paints and finishes, Cling-On! paint brushes, Zibra paint brushes, Two Fussy Blokes rollers, WoodUbend mouldings, and the Posh Chalk Artisan Range.
    Shop for paint, finishes and more.

I hope you enjoy your visit here, and hopefully something will inspire you.
