It’s hard to believe, but the Refreshed Furniture Pop-Up Shop is now in its fifth year!
Join us on Saturday September 30th in Somerset Square as we once again celebrate and showcase Ottawa’s incredible passion and love for upcycling and painting furniture.
Local furniture artists will fill Somerset Square with their beautiful, colourful creations. All types of furniture and other home accessories will be for sale at affordable prices. Come to shop, or just come to be inspired!
Make sure to also pop across the street to Malenka Originals where we’ll have discounts and Chalk Paint™ demos. Also this year, join us for some very special mini-workshops with all proceeds going to local charity Helping With Furniture!
Mini-intro to Chalk Paint™
11:00am to 11:45am and 2:00pm to 2:45pm
For only $15, this special mini-workshop will introduce you to Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan – the easiest and best way to turn your old, tired furniture into beautiful, contemporary pieces. We’ve prepared a quickie workshop that will teach you how to do a two-colour distressed finish, and a two-colour beachy wash on sample boards. Then, learn how to wax them with Annie Sloan’s clear, dark and black Soft Wax.
Mini-Advanced Techniques Workshop

You’ll also experiment with different colours of Gilding Wax, learning different tips and tricks, and how to use it with Chalk Paint™ and wax to create rich, metallic finishes on many surfaces.
