Marblellous

Now this is a weird one. This piece doesn’t even feem like my work ­čśé­čśé. Where’s the colour???­čĄö. Sometimes it’s nice to go outside your comfort zone because you never know what might happen. This is the 2nd roll of self adhesive paper I was kindly gifted by @hometextilewarehousediy and it has worked a treat. I must say I am having great fun trying out these papers and I’ve been completely basing my ideas around the paper patterns rather than paint colours and the end results are really feeling like a completely different direction for me. Different is good though, but now I’m off to find my bring pink paint ­čî║­čîĚ­čśé­čśé I’m having withdrawal symptoms ­čĄ». @ Waterford, Ireland

Off their Lockers

Nearly finished for the weekend but just had to share these lockers before I go. I was #gifted a few rolls of this fab self adhesive paper from @hometextilewarehousediy recently to try out and this design is the one that caught my eye immediately so I had to try it first. As you might have already guessed I love decoupage on furniture and use it quite regularly whether its napkins or wallpaper. I’ll definitely be adding this paper to my list too. It was nearly too easy to use if that is such a complaint ­čśé. Two simple steps and I was done. Cut it and stick it and that is it. It adheres so well too without any bubbles and was very easy to cut. This is a fantastic way to bring some decoupage into your furniture without the mess and literally anyone can use it and best of all it wont break the bank. Keep an eye for more finished pieces over the next week or 2 as i try out all the designs.

Bedroom Bliss

I did say you would seeing a lot more of this fab colour and at the moment my workshop is full of it ­čśé­čśé. Its called ­čÄĘKathleen’s Garden from @colourtrendpaints and it is just stunning. Anyway back to the task in hand. This was a pretty huge makeover for this bedroom furniture and even if I do say so myself it has turned out just beautiful. It just never ceases to amaze me what paint and a little creativity can produce. Oh and a little touch of rose gold on the hardware ÔŁĄ­čĹî. Right so I’m off to Malta for a few days ­čÖł ­čśé­čŹ║­čĺâ @ Waterford, Ireland

Private Workshops

So it’s a while coming but I’m delighted to finally announce my new private Furniture Revamping Workshops based in Waterford City. The good news is this workshop can be held on any day of the week or weekend (availability of dates tbc)
And now a little bit of info for anyone interested.
The workshops are aimed at 2-4 people max.
It is still a full day workshop from 10am to 4pm with all materials supplied. You just need to bring a small piece of furniture. The workshop will be run from my own home studio. Throughout the day you will learn many furniture upcycling techniques including, painting, decoupage, stencilling, glazing and many more. One exciting extra in this workshop is the added module of staging and professionally photographing your piece at the end of the day, you will learn how to dress your furniture, use basic studio lighting, and learn the best camera settings for furniture photography.

All Grown Up

This piece feels very grown up (not like me at all) ­čśé­čśé I’m just in love with @farrowandball ­čÄĘ Sulking Room Pink. I have it on the wall in my house and I just had to get it onto furniture too. Of course I did have to add a little animal print on the drawer to finish ­čśé. This is Stag furniture which I just love as it’s so classic and timeless. This piece is now available to buy. Check link in bio or dm for more info. I used my trusty rollers from @twofussyblokes @butleranddunne and the wine colour is @colourtrendpaints ­čÄĘBaked Plum @ Waterford, Ireland
