Welcome to Lisa's Backyard Workshop!
Hello from my Perth backyard in Scarborough, Western Australia!
I'm so passionate about revamping unloved pieces of furniture and turning them into something unique and very special. Chalk Paint has become my favourite choice of media due to its beautiful chalky smoothness and appearance, easy application, non toxic nature, and super easy water clean up. Its effortless to use and unlike many other painting mediums, with chalk paint, there's little prep needed.
Of course, preparation is always a consideration when revamping damaged pieces of furniture. And with the right techniques and eye for what to look out for, you'll be prepping your piece for chalk painting like a Pro!
The Artisan Paints, Papers, Stencils, Effects and Finishes that I supply in my Chalk Paint Shop are handmade here in Australia from natural ingredients, and our brushes are personally sourced from Europe.
Want to distress a furniture piece and give the appearance of a vintage era? Chalk paint is definitely my go to! It's so forgiving and gives a natural finish that can be made to look naturally weathered and used.
With gorgeous colours and fantastic coverage you will love my Natural Chalk Paints as much as I do.
Come join me for a Chalk Painting Workshop on your own or with friends, or browse my extensive range of supplies at my Chalk Paint Workshop located in Scarborough Beach, Perth.
