Painting something Pretty

Upcycling unloved furniture has been a passion of mine since we started painting, sanding and polishing vintage furniture for our first home. Only our sofa is new!

Being creative with a paint brush is in my blood as my dad has been a decorator for over 40 years!

Together as part of Vintique Tree, we are going to be holding upcycling workshops in our quaint countryside village hall where you will be able to learn loads of different paint effects from distressing to colour wash painting and how to prep your furniture so you don't have to spend a fortune on posh paints. Plus you will get lots of homemade cake and lunch to help get the creative juices flowing! 

We are in the process of sorting out the finer details (like Victoria or chocolate sponge?) but will keep you posted on workshop dates in case anyone is interested!

I spotted this unloved chair in a charity shop and after a bit of paint it has turned into something pretty...I didn't think to take a before photo as the thought to share it will you only just came to me doh!

Oh well here is the finished product!!
