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.
So whether you are a group of friends or a mother and daughter this is a great day out and you will go home with a fabulous piece of furniture. At a later date I will announce some open dates also which will you be available to book individual spaces. For more info and booking please fill out the Contact Form

Finishing the Kitchen

Was out of the workshop the last couple of days finishing off this table and chairs. The table was just too big to come to me so I went to the table 😂. How fab is this makeover ❤❤
It looks so modern and bright now in this fabulous new kitchen.

All Grown Up

This piece feels very grown up (not like me at all) 😂😂 I’m just in love with @farrowandball 🎨 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 😂. 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 🎨Baked Plum @ Waterford, Ireland

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. 💃💃
