Welcome

Welcome to Vintage Home Living!


Vintage Home Living, established in 2015, provides a range of services to suit your furniture refinishing needs. 

We have a selection of refinished pieces ready to purchase. If you do not see a piece that suits your needs, you can choose from our range of ‘raw’ stock or we can endeavour to source it for you. You can then have your chosen item refinished to your requirements, giving you a genuinely bespoke vintage piece of refinished furniture for your home.

Do you have a cherished item that doesn’t match your decor, but have neither the time or space to refinish it? We see many family heirlooms, along side recent used bargains and long owned items requiring updating to suit its owners tastes. It is far better to have that orange pine chest of drawers painted, than send it to landfill! Simply email us pictures for a no obligation quote and visit our workshop to discuss your requirements.

We offer free local collection and delivery within a 10 mile radius – restricted to the size of the item, but can put you in touch with a local removal company for a quote.

If you have a project of your own and require paint and accessories, we offer friendly, helpful advice on methods and the items you may need, without pressure to buy.

The products we stock are those which we ourselves use in our workshop and therefore recommend for being friendly to both you and the environment and all paints, varnishes and paint stripper are water based too.

Vintage Home Living are the official West Cornwall stockists for the following brands:

Earthborn®; Earthborn was founded as a small, independent British brand over 15 years ago with the aim of providing a true environmentally friendly alternative to conventional paints. They have worked hard to build a trusted reputation for performance with style. We love their credentials and reckoned they would sit well with our existing brands, whilst bringing this major player to Penwith! We stock all 72 samples of the Classic range and a selection of the Eco Chic Furniture Clay Paint, along with a range of sundries to help you complete your project. 

If you have a house decoration or renovation project, we can advise on the range from Claypaint for the DIYer to Ecopro for the tradesperson and order your requirements. We stock the Casein Fillers and Isolating Primer.

Frenchic® Furniture Paint; This environmentally friendly British brand of chalk and mineral paint is very low VOC, a dream to use and comes in a lovely range of colours. We started stocking this paint over 2 years ago, after finding out just how easy it is to apply and achieve a great finish. A favourite for novices and experienced painters alike, we stock most of the range, including the Al Fresco paint designed for garden furniture.

ECO Solutions; A British company manufacturing, Home Strip® a non toxic, almost nil VOC water-based paint stripper. We’ve been using this product for over 12 years and love its ease of use on a tough job!  Grime Go!® a de-greasing cleaner, free of VOCs – great for preparatory cleaning before painting and as we’ve found, great for removing sticky stuff including chewing gum!

Polyvine®; A British company that manufacture innovative and high performing products for trade professionals and home DIY projects. We started using the Decorators Varnish a couple of years ago and loved its ease of application and dried finish. We stock a carefully chosen selection of the range.
