Painted Furniture Makeovers by Kayleen West (formerly Upcycled Beauty)
Upcycled – Restyled – Bespoke – Limited Edition Furniture
Upcycled Beauty was created on Facebook as I set out to remodel my home and furniture. I’ve since restyled about 200 pieces of furniture and very few for myself! Below are some of the projects to date. Recently I renamed my Facebook page to PLAYfessional, to include all my creative projects-not just furniture. I’m adding furniture projects slowly to this website and including tutorial and material information.
The demand for my furniture has been phenomenal it has become a full time job! The demand to know how I created my beautiful pieces was also phenomenal. So the late part of 2017 has been spent developing teaching content to release in 2018. In this was I can spend my time helping others to learn and manage my occupation and time with my family well. A win-win situation for all.
Available Restored Furniture
Custom furniture work keeps me extremely busy however the furniture that I complete for my shop can be found here.
It is also advertised on my Facebook page. On my Facebook page, follower have the opportunity to see much of the furniture progress and claim furniture I buy to restore early for custom work. It is not uncommon for the pieces to sell before they are advertised.
Furniture Painting Supplies:
As people are always asking what products I use, I have decided (for now) to stock the main ones on this website. If you reside in Australia they are available to you. They are available in my web store and are eco-safe!

I am building article to share how to instructions to meet the demand on my experience to a wider audience. So please subscribe to my blog for updates. I plan to arrange workshops in the future. Be sure to email me now if you would like me to email you with information.
