Two Fussy Lockers

So after using my @twofussyblokes rollers which were kindly gifted to me by @butleranddunne i can safely say I’m a convert. Having used them for a week now on walls and furniture there were a few things that struck me about these sleeves. They wash fantastically. This is important to me as when I run workshops I come home and wash all my rollers and brushes to be used again. I’m very conscious about doing my bit for the environment so I use only water based products so that I can reuse my sleeves and brushes until they are not unusable anymore. Anyone that has used these sleeves knows how well they apply paint. You need to try them, only then will you realise they have been missing from your life since the beginning of painting 😂. A massive plus also is the packaging they come in. Paper packaging is the future and this is a fantastic bonus for me as I have decided to stock up on these for all my future workshops from here on. So I cant wait for all the lovely people attending my future workshops to try these too.
Anyhow sorry for the long winded review but I don’t normally get that excited over rollers lol. These lockers were totally inspired by #carolinedonnellyeclectic and will be for sale soon. Have a smashing weekend everyone xxx

Two Fussy Blokes

I was very generously gifted the Two Fussy Blokes rollers by Butler and Dunne Ltd to try out. I’m sure you might expect a review on furniture but coincidentally I was about to paint this wall so said I’d try them on the wall first and then on furniture. I used the smooth sleeve for this job and well what can I say only the hype is real and well deserved. I genuinely was amazed with how good it was. So easy to paint with, no paint splatters and the finish was smooth as silk. Next up I’ll be using the semi smooth on some furniture.

Abstract Storing

I kid you not I genuinely closed my eyes and blindly picked a colour out of my collection and started there 😍😍. So pink it is and orange too with a bit of decoupage and metallic stripes. But you know what I absolutely love how it turned out. Sometimes not planning at all can work 🙈🤣
This piece will be available from my Etsy and Facebook shop from next week. Also keep an eye later as I will be announcing new workshop dates in brand new locations. Eeek the excitement. 💃💃

Rainbow Right

This is what happens when I’m let loose on a commission 🙈🤣. What started off as yellow piece with a little pink soon turned into every colour I had 🌈 aswell as every bit of patience I had 😂. But if this dressing table doesn’t brighten up this day I don’t know what will 🌅🌞🌝.
I really wanted to keep it retro but with a modern twist. This yellow colour is called 🎨 Sin City from @colourtrendpaints and it is without doubt my favourite yellow and looks just fab on the dressing table 😍. I used a little brown glaze over it then just to tone it down and age it a little. Job done 👌 @ Waterford, Ireland

Dress to Desk

How unbelievably pretty is this revamped desk ❤❤. It was originally a boring pine dressing table and now repurposed into a home desk. Im not sure why i dont use Rose Gold a little more as it is just georgous. @colourtrendpaints 🎨isobar

Salon Inspired

Nothing brings the sweat out more than when a customer’s tells you to do whatever you want with furniture 😂😂. Especially when it is going into a new beauty salon, the pressure was on. I just ran with it anyhow and im delighted with how they turned out ❤. Wishing the very best of luck to Stephanie in her new business VIP Beauty in Waterford City

A Write Beauty

This was such a beautiful and unusual piece to work on 😍. To be fair the wood was just so nice that some of it just had to be kept, but the green colour just sets it off beautifully. It has a real old farmhouse feel to it now. ❤
