About the Course
One day Shabby Chic Furniture Painting Workshop
Every once in a while, our furniture (like us) could do with a makeover. Some pieces dear to you might be worn out beyond usefulness or appeal and you might want to revamp them so they can still look good in your surroundings and feel like you have had the designers in.
This creative workshop teaches how to give new life to your old and boring furniture. We teach people young and old how to paint old or new furniture using only the best chalk and non chalk based paints in a variety of colours to give you the very best results. Our team will show you the "shabby chic" method & finishing off with a wax to give that silky smooth finish.
We have a variety of options to bringing your own small piece of furniture or painting an object we have supplied with the option to purchase if you wish. Please make sure your item is small as we are limited on time to paint and we want everything to be taken home dry. The perfect item would be a mirror, frame or small box, you may also bring a small chair or small side table, please make sure it is no bigger than 35 x 20 x 15 inches approx. No book shelves, sideboards. desks, cots, large coffee tables, as we are up stairs and are limited on time to finish painting. On the day items will be available to purchase if you do not have an item and will start from £5...
Why not bring a friend or family to enjoy the experience which will last approximately 2 hours, these extra places must be purchased. We promise this will be a very hands on and productive workshop with exciting results. Book your course NOW!!! Places are limited!!! Please email to confirm payment and what day you would like to be booked on.
Please note... the only prep required before hand is cleaning the product so it is ready to paint & sugar soaping for grease and stains if necessary. You will not need to sand your item beforehand. Items can also be provided if needed, but please let us know in advance as we do not always have stock available. Please do not bring any item that has monetary or sentimental value as it is a practice workshop. All places must be purchased as there is not enough room for watchers to sit in.

Came along with my sister for workshop 1 where we painted our chairs in chalk paint. I was amazed how wonderful they look after, a real transformation. We have now booked in for workshop 2 and 3. A thoroughly enjoyable day with tea and cake, parking was good. Tanya was very fun and informative. I'm looking forward to painting everything at home now. Get booking your place today, you won't be disappointed!5
