Try your hand at upcycling with the help of Annie Sloan

Try your hand at stencilling and win Kirstie Allsopp and Annie Sloan goodies!

Kirstie Allsopp once said,“new is not necessarily the best unless it’s shoes and handbags”, and we agree.

Doing up old furniture is a must to achieve a vintage look in your home, no matter what era you’re going for. A simple and easy way to transform a piece of furniture and transport it through time is by using stencils.

The expert who truly knows a thing or two about how to breathe new life into old furniture is none other than - Annie Sloan.

Annie is internationally renowned in the field of decorative painting. She inspires people all over the world to be creative and adventurous with her miracle colours, Chalk Paint TM and now stencils. Earlier this year, she brought out a range of stencils providing yet another tool to help you upcycle your old wares, walls and even fabric. We’ve teamed up with her again to show you how simple it is to do!

We’d like you to get creative at home..

To get your creativity flowing, watch our short film where Annie Sloan shows us how easy it is to use stencils to give an old table a complete transformation.Then, it’s over to you. If you fancy your chances of winning a signed Kirstie Allsopp Vintage B5 Notebook to jot down all your ideas as well as an Annie Sloan stencil and sample pot of paint, all you need to do is get stencilling on an old piece of furniture and send us a picture of your finished upcycled and stencilled creation. All we’re looking for is creativity and flair.
