If you are like a lot of people, you will have random pieces of furniture that don’t fit in with each other - this is where upcycling can help you, by enabling you to change the look of tired or outdated furniture and unify random items by painting in a common theme & colour scheme.

If your piece of furniture is well made, and has nice lines, then it is worth keeping!

My name is Karen, and my ‘Getting Started 101’ workshop will empower you on your journey, covering the preparation work required (and good products & tools to use), different paints available (chalk, milk & enamel paint from a range of providers such as Vintro, Voodoo Molly, Annie Sloan, Rust-oleum, Newtons, Porter's Original, Resene, Jolie, Creative Moments, Karen Walker, Van Gogh Fossil Paint,  etc) and some common painting techniques.
