Our Story

We are a family run business which developed through my Mother, Cathy and my Father’s love of quality furniture. From an early age I can recall both parents speaking of the craftsmanship and the importance of preserving these individual pieces. They were known for rescuing discarded items in the hope that they could bring new life into them.

Our aim is to preserve quality items of furniture by lovingly restoring and hand decorating each piece to create elegance and individuality which should last for many years.

Based in the beautiful Cornish countryside Cathy’s Vintage Grays interiors is a newly launched enterprise restoring and rejuvenating vintage furniture. Our pieces are carefully selected and are prepared through a quality process of restoring, preparing, decorating and ending with various quality product finishes

Having restored our Georgian farmhouse we sourced vintage pieces to complete our home. We have had many years experience of hand decorating furniture but wanted to try something different, so we attended numerous paint courses in the art and technique of chalk painting and this gave us new inspiration. We are now using not only our eggshell paints but have added to our repertoire by using chalk based paints too and giving the customer more choice in finish. 

We chose the elegant shades of French gray paints to compliment and transform the once loved pieces that have fallen out of fashion into stylish and sought after items.
After receiving many positive comments and requests for similar pieces we decided to launch Cathy’s Vintage Grays interiors.

It gives us great satisfaction to know that our lovingly restored furniture will be enjoyed by others for many years to come and continuing Cathy’s vision.  Look out for our British Bulldog pup called The Guvnor who spends most of his time in our workshop overseeing the jobs. He is also Gray !
