Furniture Painting Workshop

Our furniture painting workshop is a fun introduction to upcycling furniture. Relax and let your creativity flow whilst you learn a new skill and customise your furniture.

You’re welcome to bring along or pre-order, a small item of wooden furniture e.g. a small side table, coffee table, magazine rack, dining chair, small cabinet or a stool. During the furniture painting workshop, we will guide you through:

  • prepping and designing your piece of furniture
  • making your own chalk paint
  • how to paint your furniture
  • achieving a flat finish
  • achieving a distressed / shabby chic look
  • taping techniques
  • how to protect your furniture with wax

Flat Finish

You’ll learn the basic techniques required to achieve a clean, finished look for your furniture.



For those interested in the shabby chic look, you’ll be shown how to distress your furniture.



Want a more funky or retro look? You’ll learn how to use masking tape to create designs.

Furniture upcycling gives you the creative freedom to custom design your own furniture and home. Following the workshop, you’ll be fully equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to confidently use the paints and waxes on your own. Enabling you to reduce your reliance on new products and your carbon footprint through reuse.

We offer a 10% discount on furniture painting kits, tools and materials during workshops.
