The FORGOTTEN GEMS Story
At Forgotten Gems I don't just paint items of furniture, I nurture them into unique masterpieces making each one, one of a kind. I see the beauty in the most tired and worn out of pieces and give them a new lease of life using quality materials including Annie Sloan Chalk paint, Fusion Mineral and General Finishes.
Forgotten Gems started off as a way for me to furnish my own home on a budget. I've always loved the look of real wooden furniture and so I bought my first gem...
Once I'd painted my first piece, I was hooked. I loved the fact each piece had its imperfections that told its unique story. People started asking where my pieces were from and many were shocked when I told them that they'd been done by little old me.
It was not long before I was getting requests from friends and family, either to source them a piece or paint them a Forgotten Gem of their own. From there the business began to grow.
Today I source pieces from all over Europe and give them a new lease of life, ready for the next chapter of their story.
