2019 A Review

Looking back at photos on my camera of 2019 makeovers and these ones in particular were a lot of fun. Using Frenchic Chalk & Mineral paint throughout my upcycling projects (I'm a stockist, of course!) has made it a pleasure.

Revamp a vintage suitcase

If you've got an old leather suitcase, a very quick way of revamping it is to use Frenchic's virtually odourless, solvent and toxin free Browning Wax. Clean it down with sugar soap and then apply the wax all over before giving it a good buff up to a beautiful Frenchic gleam. Products available from Doodledash stores at Parson's Street, Banbury and also at unit 9, Banbury Antiques Centre.
