The Painted Armoire

Transforming an old piece into something fresh and new is so rewarding. I find taking time to paint is also so very therapeutic. I love to share this amazing hobby. Upcycling is something anyone can do!

Wattlebird is proud to be the Canberra stockist for:
  • Mezzie and Frank furniture paint, Australian made and beautiful to use.
  • My Stencil Lady stencils, also an amazing Australian business with incredible stencil designs I love to use on my pieces.
  • Mint Decoupage papers, created by a Geelong based company. Take your pieces to a whole new level!
  • In addition we are now excited to be the Canberra stockist for Iron Orchid Design (IOD)  – IOD create the most amazing range of furniture transfers, stamps and my favourite moulds for casting decorative features.

Paint your own small piece – learn how to paint like a pro in one session. Bring along a small piece such as milking stool, small table,  picture frame or wooden tray to paint.  A small piece will mean  your project will be finished by the end of the workshop.
