On the first Saturday of every month here at The Wood Pile we host a Shabby Chiuc Course which lasts 3 hours, This 3-hour course will teach you how to upcycle your worn out old furniture with a makeover. We offer creative workshops on 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 paints in a variety of colours to give you the very best results.

Our team will show you the "shabby chic" method and 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, stool, bedside cabinet 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 are limited on time to finish painting.
