Reduce, Reuse, Recycle…ReVamp

Melissa Foley of ReVamp Furniture, who used to be a local, is coming back to us from Tipperary to hold a one day furniture painting workshop on Sunday April 9th in the units beside Supervalu in Ballaghaderreen.

Melissa will take you through the re-vamping steps: from preparing your piece for painting; to what materials/paint/technique is best; to what type of finish you would like. By the end of the day, you’ll be taking home a re-vamped piece of furniture AND the skills, knowledge and confidence to work on your next piece.

All you need to do is bring a small piece of furniture with you and wear old clothes.

The Small Print

The day will start – promptly – at 11, and will finish around 5pm.

The cost of the workshop is €80 per person. This includes all paint and materials AND lunch AND some treats to keep the class going.

For more information, you can email Melissa at or telephone her on 087 9541527.

And in future…

If you enjoy the workshop and furniture restoration, make sure to put Lisacul’s Annual Auction in your diary for December of this year (we think it’ll be on 3rd December) so you can buy some pre-loved furniture that is just crying out for ReVamping!
