What a lovely day we have had! A great course, with lots of techniques and ideas to get started using the Annie Sloane product range, topped off by Steph's friendly and knowledgeable guidance. Thank you so much - Can't wait to get started putting it all into practice!
A really great course which has given me the confidence to start painting my own furniture. I found the distressing technique helpful and will definitely experiment layering two colours in the future. A lot of information into the paints and techniques was provided and I had not realised how many waxes there are and the very different looks you can achieve by changing wax. A great course to inspire and give you the confidence to get going!
Very well presented and instructed by Steph. Now inspired to "up-cycle" my Ducal furniture. Met some like minded folk with whom I will keep in touch and we are going to swop furniture that we don't need. Will keep in touch with Steph. and her La-di-da interiors shop and purchase more products for decorating my new kitchen. Very happy thank you.
Been wanting to do this course for over a year and have lots of projects in our new house. So glad I did this course it's really shown me how to maximise the use of Annie Sloan paint... Thank you so much...
Love the courses at La Di Da, they provide a great environment to learn the techniques in. Steph is friendly and professional in her approach. I have learnt loads and really enjoyed being able to find my creative spirit again.
I had looked at the adverts for this course a number of times before finally deciding to give it a go, and boy am I glad I did.
It is ideal for anyone new to upcycling as it not only teaches you the techniques you need to know, but also the short cuts, Steph is more than happy to share her wealth of knowledge during the morning. On the course I attended we seemed to spend most of our time having "light bulb moments" as our eyes were opened to just what could be achieved with Annie Sloan products.
