Hi, I'm Karen, chief designer and creator at Restyled Vintage, a little furniture upcycling business I started in 2009.

For over five years, furniture painting was my thing, and I loved it. I'm grateful and proud that my creations that will grace people's homes for many years to come.

But, I got bored. Painting furniture wasn't exciting or challenging me any more. So in April 2014, I bought a caravan!

I've spent the last fourteen months undertaking a major renovation, teaching myself a whole lot of new skills along the way. 

Blossom is her name as she has most certainly blossomed from a very ugly ducking into the prettiest pastel swan you've ever seen.

She's still not quite done but she will be in the coming weeks.

Once she is, watch this space for a very exciting announcement...
