From Drab to Fab: Learn How to Re-purpose Your Own Furniture

Recently I was asked to take a look at a few classes from an amazing website called Craftsy. I am excited to share those classes with you here over the next year. It wasn’t until a few months ago that I heard of Craftsy. I didn’t expect to find such an extraordinary resource. But it is really an invaluable wealth of information.

Drab to Fab Furniture Upcycling

I LOVE LOVE LOVE vintage furniture, but most of the time it requires a little TLC. I have done my fair share of sanding and painting with a lot of mistakes along the way. But it is always such a rewarding experience to take a drab piece of furniture that you have owned for years, or a $5 flea market find, and give it all new life!! I would definitely say that I have struggled re-purposing things in the past simply because I didn't know exactly what I was doing. I was winging it and sometimes that was obvious in the finished product :). I was excited when Craftsy asked me to take a look at their Drab to Fab: Furniture Upcycling class! First, because as I said before, I LOVE upcycling, but also because I could use a little help in this area (ahem).

To put it bluntly I was blown away by the amount of instruction included in this class. If you plan to do some re-purposing of furniture, whether you have never done it or you have done it for years, this class is truly amazing. It gives indepth instruction on all of the tools and techniques you can use for re-purposing furniture and sets you up for success. The instructor has years and years of experience in movie set art and mural art, as well as furniture re-purposing. After learning how to paint pots, tables, picture frames and a metal chair, you will be all set to take on whatever re-purposing surface awaits you!!

Drab to Fab Furniture Upcycling

Craftsy’s, Drab to Fab: Furniture Upcycling class is truly a class for the novice to the professional!  It was incredible!

Like I have said over and over again, one of the best things about taking the class online, besides the valuable information, was the ability to start the class and pause the class whenever I needed to. When the kids were in bed, or when I had a few minutes during the day to spare, I would sit down and watch a bit of the course in the comfort of my own home. It was so convenient! Craftsy is the perfect solution for us busy moms who want to learn, but don’t have time to leave the house and attend a class.
