MASTERING TECHNIQUES THE SHABBY CHIC WAY

Collage-ANTCURLYWHITEMIRRORFive years ago when I started out recycling gorgeous & unique pieces of furniture; the game was quite different then!  The basics remain the same, but the assisting products were limited.  We had to make the most of what was available at the time and experiment to create the ideal products, ready to sell on the market.  Now there are so many amazing & diverse products available.

I have had the pleasure to be able to teach & advise so many interested crafts people on their journey as well.  That is one of the most rewarding feelings one could have.  I have also learnt so much from so many – one of the perks of the trade !!  And it doesn’t stop there – as time goes on there is so much more to learn.

Making my life extremely rewarding is being able to breath life into an old piece of decor, that not only has a story to tell, but when finished, has a new lease on life with more stories to tell in it’s future.  We live in a very wasteful society and being able to recharge something someone else has discarded for some apparent reason is not only beneficial to our beautiful planet, but also gives me a sense of achievement – a way of giving back!!!

Take these old suitcases for instance …
Most people would see these as old and useless – dust collectors !
When I saw them, I saw a very different picture …

And this old Beauty …
Here are some incredible products you can now use:
 
So when you see an old piece of furniture, think twice as to it’s origin and what it can give back to the world we live in today.  If everyone gave back and recycled one thing every few weeks or months, the planet would be a much healthier and happier place to be!

Because so many talented people have helped me on my journey, I would like to promote and share these amazing people and their products with you.
