Trash to Treasure workshop Sunday 30 November

Do you want to learn how to paint furniture AND recover a seat all in one day? Sign up for the one-day workshop 'Revamp a Chair' and go home armed with a whole set of new skills and a fresh looking chair.

In the morning we will paint a chair using Rust-oleum chalky furniture paint, creating either a smooth or a distressed finish. Then after lunch we will tackle the recovering of the seat pad, using new foam and fabric. Bring your own fabric or choose something from our stack of remnants. 

When? 
Sunday 30th of November, 10am-4pm

Costs:
£100, including materials and lunch

What to bring:
Please bring your own kitchen chair and choice of fabric to cover the seat. Also, if you want to make the most of your time, remove the old material and any staples/tacks as this can be time consuming.

Want to take part?
Please sign up by emailing ninasapartment@gmail.com

Midcentury modern gorgeousness: Greaves and Thomas armchair

Sometimes you come across such beautiful pieces that you find it hard to part with them. The Greaves and Thomas armchair I recently acquired and fully restored is one of these. A gorgeous chair formed out of two-tone wood, in such a nice shape it is almost a sculpture. The seat is reupholstered with new pirelli webbing and foam with a removable cotton-blend blue-grey cover.

*Chair is now sold*
