Today I hosted my first Upcycling Furniture Workshop!

A good friend of mine was ‘teacher’ for the day & showed our keen recyclers how to make ‘Annie Sloan’ style chalky paint – which means no prepping or undercoat on the furniture required.

The ladies had brought a great selection of furniture, and the paint colours being mixed were vintage and retro.  Ros also gave us lots of ideas and inspiration on how to decoupage, distress and wax furniture to get a range of different finishes.

This was a really fun day, and everyone seemed to enjoy the process of transforming something plain or old-fashioned into a new and stylish item.  Well done ladies!  I hope you continue breathing new life into old furniture!

I really must get on with transforming my own tired and uninspiring pieces!
