  • Bespoke Dressers & Book Cases

     

    A customer recently admired one of our hand painted dressers but dimensions simply did not work for her.

    We sat down and designed a bespoke dresser that suited the scale, style and colour scheme of her property. We also designed and produced a large oak topped dining table to tie in with the partially glazed dresser / bookcase

    Hope that you like these pieces and if you would like us to design a bespoke dresser or book case for you, then just call us on 02892692304 (Int. 0044 (0) 2892692304) for a chat and an estimate.

    Here is a link to other styles dresser and bookcase.

  • Dramatic Crystal Chandeliers

    We work with lots of hotels, retailers and the public to help them find items to create the look they desire.

    I was recently invited to a meeting with one of our customers – The Merchant Hotel Belfast, to discuss some future projects and review others that we had been involved in.

    I thought this beautiful Florentine chandelier, matched with a traditional “old masters” style oil painting was an amazing combination. It just was the epitome of style and sophistication, which is what the Merchant Hotel is all about.

    So if you would like to create this classical opulent look then why not check out our lighting for that special piece.

     

  • Using Reclaimed scaffolding planks to make a raised vegetable patch

     

    With spring just about on us, lots of us are all starting to think about getting out into the garden.

    I have been watching a repeat of good old Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s  show on TV  and he was making  raised vegetable patches with reclaimed scaffolding planks.

    Some friends of ours did this a couple of years ago and get a lot of pleasure out of it plus nice fresh vegetables.

    Just like Hugh, they said it was really simple to do and that the reclaimed scaffolding planks are really sturdy, look great  and will last for ages. 

    If anyone is looking to find reclaimed scaffolding boards to make a raised vegetable garden let them know that we have a quantity of really good, sound, reclaimed scaffolding planks in stock at Wilsonsyard.

    So if you fancying starting a project and having fresh salad during the summer, well now is the time to act.

  • Where to Source Well Seasoned Timber & Joinery Products

    Bespoke Joinery and more...

     

    Here at Wilsons we have a wide range of clientele and over the past 20 years we have been able to provide the perfect arena in which specialist joiners / carpenters come to select that well seasoned piece of antique timber for their project.

     

    One such project was the conference table at Farmleigh house, made by Breffni Ireland Ltd, who have been choosing Wilsons timber for many years. I think you will agree it’s a beautiful piece of workmanship, achieved by using quality well seasoned reclaimed timber.

    Farmleigh, an estate of 78 acres situated to the north-west of Dublin's Phoenix Park, was purchased from the Guinness family by the Irish Government in 1999 for €29.2m. The house has been carefully refurbished by the Office of Public Works as the premier accommodation for visiting dignitaries and guests of the nation, Government meetings and for public enjoyment

    So for bespoke joinery projects both large and small visit our timber yard or contact Steve on 02892 699191.
