About McKay Designs

Welcome to My Mckay Designs

Inspired By My Travels

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. Giving a 2nd chance to Pre-loved furniture is in the blood, I still remember as a child my parents adding their own personal touches to vintage items.

Based on the Wirral, I trained as a decorative painter learning the old skills of marbling and wood graining. Although my own style and the products I use have changed and developed, I still love the slower process of building semi-translucent layers over each other.

Return to Vintage

After taking a long break from commercial painting, I returned in 2019 updating furniture, Mckay Designs was started.

In 2020 I was asked to be a content creator for an American company, Dixie Belle, a role I’m still proud of holding. My love of travel has to be the biggest source of inspiration for me, having traveled to many countries in Asia…
