This Sunday 22nd April come join me for a Furniture Upcycling Demo at the West Waterford Festival of Food in Dungarvan, Waterford.
So i got to splatter paint all over furniture and no one gave out to me 😂😂😂. The child in me had great fun lol. Im absolutely in love with this colour its my first time using it but definitely not the last. 🎨🎨 Calm Interlude by Colourtrend Paints
This is what upcycling is really about. Taking random pieces of furniture and turning them into a matching set. These drawers and monks bench were pieces that were just surplus to requirement until my client realised that she could update the spare bedroom without having to buy new. As it was for the spare room she decided to have a little fun and go with the current trend of Jungle/Tropical themes. Warm fun and definitely tropical these pieces are starting their second life.
It’s not going to come as much surprise but I love gold. I love all different colours of gold and I especially love it on furniture. All these pieces are for a girls bedroom and originally were to be all white, but where is the fun in that. So a little gold here and a little gold there and then full on gold stencils and voila. What could have been plain white furniture now has fantastic character and the best part is no one else will have the same.
It really is pure coincidence that this very pretty pink piece was finished today 😂❤❤. I’m a little obsessed with all things pretty this week. Not like me at all 😂😂. When this piece arrived it was missing a few original handles. Then I realised how many handles I have from old pieces so I decided to try out a little mix and match to finish off this shabby piece. No waste here 😂Colourtrend Paints Beag

Very much like the wine racks you will find one of these monks benches in nearly ever home in Ireland. And they are just as much fun to revamp too. How pretty does it look now. The design criteria was for a country cottage chic look. The good news is i hit the nail right on the head for my client. ❤❤

This is a little revamp for my fab friend Sara who is expecting a little boy in a few weeks. These lockers are just perfect to upcycle. It’s such an easy and quick revamp and can literally be customised for anyone from Kids to Adults and i think it’s safe to say that nearly everyone has that spare locker just lying around 😂😂. If you would like to learn how to revamp something like this then there are still spaces available for my workshop on 11th March. For more info please fill out the contact form.
The last few weeks I have seen a lot of stories regarding bloggers and social media influencers. Now without jumping on the bandwagon with my opinions about the whole saga, it actually made me realise how many people nowadays work from home, especially women. There are customer service jobs from home, bloggers, writers, graphic designers etc. As someone who also works from home I know how comforting it is to have lovely surroundings to work in. If you are now thinking “Just get to the point” well when I found this desk I straight away thought this is perfect for a real girlie office, especially if your office is in your home. I really didn’t want to use pink this time so finally I got to use a beautiful coral colour that I have wanted to use for a long time. I am in love with how it turned out and I think this piece would look beautiful in any girls office. (Even if I do say so myself lol)
