About

Done up North specialises in giving furniture and furnishings a whole new look and transforming them through painting and unique painted designs. 

We offer an in person furniture painting service across Yorkshire and the North and work on customer commmisions and source and sell pieces of furniture right across the UK. 

We can help you to bring all kinds of furniture back to its original condition by repairing it and restoring the features, finish and fabric.  

Working with you to help you decide on a new colour, finish and any other decorative design or details that would like to make your pieces work within your home now or within any new scheme you're planning.

We can also convert and upcycle furniture and furnishings to give them a new purpose as part of our design work. 

We are able to offer painting services for fixed furnishings and cabinetry too if you are looking to change fitted items that are need updating.

Nicky, the main designer in the business, has been buying, selling and renovating vintage furniture for more than 20 years and is a trained interior designer so we can offer a complete service, understanding your style and needs, consulting with you at every stage, making sure the design is captured and communicated well right through til the job is done and ensuring satisfaction afterwards.

Re-finishing old furniture and furnishings inherently gives your home character and creates a style that is personal to you and more meaningful than it would if everything is bought new but of course is also a much more cost-effective option too. 

Often old furniture is inherited or gifted - whether sentimental to you or not - and revamping it is brilliant way to make use of those pieces. It's also ultimately a fantastic way of living in a more sustainable and less wasteful way.

If you are interested in starting painting your own furniture we also run furniture upcycling workshops. The forthcoming dates are in the Workshops section or get in touch to discuss individual support or group/party sessions.   

If you are looking for ideas, tips & tricks head over to Blog. We regularly share design inspiration and how to articles as a contributing designer for Reloved Magazine and have been featured in interiors magazines and blogs.

Done up North specialises in Fusion Mineral Paint and can help you with any queries relating to their paint. 

As a business we love to always love to collaborate with other small businesses and social enterprises to encourage upcycling and support local creativity so we'd love to hear from you if you'd like to work together.

Let's Do It Up together!
