Hi and welcome to Mckay Designs, I'm Janette and my love of travel and painting have been combined to create one off pieces of furniture.

Based on the Wirral, I'm a fully trained decorative painter and my passion is to layer and blend colours to give vintage furniture a whole new lease of life.

As you can probably tell from a lot of my designs, I am heavily influenced by my travels to India, Cambodia and Bali (to name a few)! When I visit a new country I like to immerse myself fully in their culture and way of life. I am that traveller that is taking photos of decrepit doors and backstreet markets for inspiration, and I like to think this comes through when I’m crafting my pieces.

I create furniture that has been adorned and adored; breathing new life and culture into existing pieces to give them a new purpose. I have a passion for vintage, and believe that every piece has a story to tell. Each bespoke piece is painted and designed with the utmost care and attention to the finest detail. As well as creating pieces that are breathtaking and visually beautiful, I pride myself on quality and craftsmanship.

I use a variety of techniques for layering and blending, and metallic finishes for a bit of wow. I've recently been made a content creator for Dixie Belle and they are my preferred products to use.

Apart from items for sale I also offer a commission service, whether its furniture from my stock or an item you already have, I can help design and create something unique to you.
