Footstool makeover workshop by Little Gems Interiors



What we’ll cover Learn how to paint and reupholster a footstool which you can take home with you at the end of this full day hands-on course. We will provide a footstool for you to work on and you will be invited to pick fabric from our beautiful selection. As well putting some simple traditional upholstery techniques into practice, you will also learn how to use chalk paint, selecting your favourite colour from our range to apply to your project.

Your footstool, fabric and all other tools, paint and materials will be available and provided as part of the course.
