Commissions;-How does that work?

Commissioning work from 'Andyman Upcycling means you can get EXACTLY what you want. You can bring us a piece of furniture to decorate, or we can look out for what you want and include that in the price.  Think about what colours and theme you want, get in touch and discuss it with us, we may add some ideas or suggestions or you can let Andy have free rein with the design, and then we all agree on a price. Then just wait while the magic happens. These are some examples of what our previous customers have said about commissioning furniture from us. 

Charlie Comic Toy Box

My son had a dark brown linen chest as his toy box for years. It was functional and that's about all you could say about it. While working with Andy I mentioned that my son (who is 8 going on 30) had told me that the chest was so uncool! He showed me some of the superhero things he has done and said he would be willing to do some for this box. 
Honestly the results were beyond anything we could have imagined. It is beautiful! It is perfect. It is a great mix of child friendly but not something I can see him growing out of. The box is painted blue but covered with superhero collages, inside has a space theme. 
There is such attention to detail that now nearly a month later we are still finding new and interesting bits we hadn't noticed before. 
Andy is an artist and as a mum I could not have asked for more or better, I have gained a few brownie points. 
Honestly I would recommend Andy to anyone, an outstanding friend and a wonderful upcycler!

    Recover Seat Covers

    Andy is a lovely, talented man. I bought a beautiful sewing box from him. He had very cleverly turned a tired piece of furniture into something up to date and beautiful. I was so impressed with his work that I asked him if he could recover our dining room chairs. He did an amazing job on them. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Andy’s work to anyone. It’s a 5 star rating from me. Thank you Andy. ????

    A BIG thank you to Andy Buddin for doing such a brilliant job recovering our dining room chairs. They are fabulous and I now reach the table without needing a cushion. ????????????????

        Dr Who Set of 3 Tables

        I had set of very tired, water marked tables that were destined for the skip. I came across Andy's page and two weeks later they were turned into works of art! From start to finish Andy couldn't have been more helpful, and his craftsmanship is superb! I will definitely be commissioning more pieces in the future and cannot recommend him highly enough.

            Star Wars Table

            I could not be happier with the Star Wars themed table I bought for my Son. He is over the moon�. I also have to say it was a joy to see how you interacted with my Son, he loved chatting to you today. You were amazing and brightened his day, when he kept coming back to talk to you! Also thank you so much for dropping the table off at my house. As a non driver, it would have been impossible for me to get the table home. I would definitely recommend you to my family and friends!!
