OVERVIEW: Make your own deep-buttoned foot stool!!!! NEW exciting 2-day Upholstery Course
Day 1. Learn how to mix your own chalk paint and how to chalk paint your stool legs (any colour you want!)
Day 2. Learn to upholster and deep button your footstool (60x40cm) ready to take home at the end of the day.
On day 1 we will prepare the legs for painting and then mix our own chalk paint. Legs and all tools/materials are supplied (tapered round 17cm high). You will need to bring a small pot of emulsion paint in the colour of your choice (sample pots are great) at least 125ml. There will be paint left to do more stuff at home and you will have learned how to mix even more. We will paint the legs and while they dry map out our deep buttoning and prep the stool frame. If there’s time, we will also start making your buttons.
On day 2 we will finish off the legs (sanding, waxing) and start deep buttoning! This is great fun and very
