Welcome to Little Red Industries
I'm Natasha Dickins, a DIY specialist, professional renovator and furniture maker. I love to create how-to content.
I design and build modern living solutions, but can also fix a wonky kitchen door and transform an old chair with instant style. And I can show you how too.
Little Red Industries is where my career as a lifestyle magazine editor, journalist and TV presenter combines a love of furniture and mid-century design with renovating experience and a workshop full of power tools.
And I love to talk DIY. So roll up your sleeves and let’s make it together!
How would you spruce up a faux Victorian door flanked by etched sidelights and fronted with a banging brown aluminium screen?
‘Smash it out!’ says Natasha, who replaced it with midcentury Palm Springs-style that totally packs a colour punch. Homes to Love thought it was a winner too!
Little Red Industries offers clients design and building services.
Much of my work is made to measure and customised – from residential renovations and room restyling, to office fit-outs and storage systems, corporate furniture and retail display.
I used Tasmanian oak moulding to make this this midcentury-style bedhead. The trick is to use a good adhesive and a great-quality sealer like Monocel Clear Varnish to give a professional finish.
This is is designed for a Queen-size base but you can adapt the measurements to suit your bed, just follow my step-by-step instructions.
The original designs and refurbished classics created at Little Red Industries are expertly handcrafted.
Each piece is collectible, unique and beautifully finished. Customise your favourite or get in touch to have a chat about timbers, finishes, colours and styling.
The Dress Me Up MINI clothes rack displays pretty dresses and hero costumes or helps set out the kids' outfits for the week. It also flat-packs and is easy to use for trade shows and market stalls.
Psst! This cutest dress ever is created from fine Japanese fabric and made in Australia for little girls' clothing label Talaria.
