Furniture Crush

By Kyle Lane Clonmel

description

Furniture Crush. 12 colour popping painted furniture projects. 

My name is Joanne Condon and I own a small business called Kyle Lane in Clonmel,  where I have been upcycling furniture where I painted old furniture giving it a new lease of life for the past 5 years. I also hold painted furniture workshops to give other people the confidence to create their own pieces by sharing all the tips and tricks I have learned over the years. I like to create colourful and fun furniture that has character and personality.To me , it's like having a functional piece of art in your home that you love and cherish. I am a qualified artists and art teacher and am happily combining my love for art and interiors together to create something special.

For over a year I have been working on a book called Furniture Crush, 12 colour popping painted furniture projects.This book will be an all you need to know guide about painting furniture. Each of the 12 projects will be a step by step guide on each of the 12 projects showing a different technique, from distressing to applying wallpaper to applying gold leaf. I have invested a lot of time and have collected pieces of furniture to best demonstrate the techniques I want to share in the best possible way.The book will also contain tips and tricks to make painting furniture easy, giving you tips on planning, what paint and products to use while giving each piece a durable and nice finish. Each project will inspire and encourage you to paint your own furniture at home, bringing your interior style to a whole new level. 

Money raised will allow me to print a good quality hardback book, with full colourful images of high quality(€7,000) It will help me invest in a professional photographer to capture each step and project effectively(€2,500). It will enable me to hire an editor(€500-€800), a graphic designer to format and create graphics for the book(€1,500) and a small about of PR to get me started in the promotion of the book(€500).

Thank you so much for taking the time to read about my Furniture Crush book project.
