I attended a local workshop where they teach you how to make-over furniture. They actually provide you with a piece of furniture at the class. I chose a shelving unit. I was taught how to sand the furniture down first which was a messy hard job. Then I had to paint an undercoat on the piece. This was a weekly class so it took a few weeks to complete it. I then used both spray painting and brush paint to complete the design. I did this as part of Cultural Spring and Parkers Trust in Sunderland. The staff were really good and the other people were really friendly.
