About the Course

Several of our students who have attended our “Furniture Painting Workshops” during the courses have highlighted that they own pieces of furniture that would be in need of repair before they even considered re-styling. Here at "life-of-style" HQ we are constantly discussing methods as to how we can assist our clients in gaining the knowledge and experience in order to progress their furniture re-styling projects.

With the continuing uncertainty in our economy more people are looking to up-cycle existing or "handed-down" useful pieces, we have introduced an in your own home service to provide "At Home Workshops" specific to your own plans; sharing some of our techniques and introduce them into a practical course in the comfort and surroundings of your home. So time to look out tired and old pieces that are in need of rejuvenation:-

Advance information is required as follows –

The piece of furniture for repair and re-styled to be photographed (4 images) outlining the areas of repair e-mailed ahead of the chosen date for assessment

Practical hands-on time to be agreed

Review of repairs to be carried out
Necessary materials and tools required discussed
Supply of safety equipment where required
Carry out repairs
Outline of other repair methods and techniques (little secrets of the professional!)

Re-style techniques to include
Stenciling
Appliqués

As this is a detailed process the course is restricted on a “1-2-1” basis, unless the student books for a friend or member of the family in order to cross-pollinate ideas and advice
