DIY in a Day - Furniture Painting Techniques

Have you ever fancied painting or upcycling your own furniture but don’t know where to start? Do you love the look of all the quirky painted pieces of furniture in retro shops?

Come along to a Furniture painting techniques workshop and we will show you how to put the Chic into Shabby! Learn how to resurrect preloved furniture with tried and tested paint effects and expert tuition in our friendly, accessible ‘hands on’ one day workshop.

During the workshop we will teach you the basic skills, tips and advice on how to apply the paint and wax to give you the courage and inspiration to embark on your own projects at home. We demonstrate furniture preparation, two-colour distressed look, dark & white waxing, FrenSheen highlighting and finishing coat. We show you how to select and use a paint brush so that the correct amount of paint goes on the furniture and not all over you. You will also learn how to take care of your paint brushes.



There is no need to have any prior experience and you don’t have to be in any way artistic to get great results.

Beginners welcome.
