Firstly thank you for taking time to look at my cause. I am 38 years old and I have started up a re-cycling and upcycling furniture business based in Surrey. I currently only do this in my spare time but would love for this to become full time and work for myself when I can and am fit enough. I have some serious health condition of which I am willing to give full media history and evidence of. But I am determind not to give up on life and not to give up working!! I need to keep busy both mentally and physically for as long as I can but working 9-5 has been a real struggle the last 5 or so years since my health deteriorated. I need the oportunity to work for myself and give myself the flexibility to go to hospital appointments and doctors appointments (once a week).
I love re-cycling and up-cycling furniture. Its been a real joy to undertake projects and furniture that otherwise is put in landfill be made usefull again.
I AM LOOKING FOR FUNDING TO BUY A VAN / ESTATE CAR.
Currently my partner runs me around picking up and delivering furniture borrowing my mum's estate car, but really we do need a vehicle suitable to get furniture from A to B without having to rely on other peoples commitments. With the money I would purchase a van or large estate car suitable to carry furniture.
The vehicle would mean I could really start to get my dream business underway.
All of the furniture I paint I use Annie Sloan paint which is a water-based decorative paint. It is a non-toxic paint that is lead-free, EG-free, odour-free and has very low volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
