Handmade Fair, Kirstie Allsopp - Aug '15

What a fabulous three days I spent at The Handmade Fair with Kirstie Allsopp and Annie Sloan.

 

I was showcasing two stunning chairs and a lamp which I restored and hand painted using Annie's Chalk Paint®. The chairs were reupholstered in beautiful fabric designed by mother and daughter textile designers, Witts Design, who also made a lovely lamp shade too.

 

We were overwhelmed with the responses we received. The very sweet Annie loved the transformation and even had a sit in one of the chairs, whilst Kirstie cooed over all three pieces.

 

If you're interested in learning what techniques I used to transform the three pieces check out my blog.
