See you in January at the Home + Remodelling Show!
The Refreshed Furniture Pop-Up Shop is an annual event in Ottawa to celebrate and showcase Ottawa’s incredible passion and love for upcycling and painting furniture.
Started five years ago by Katrina Barclay, owner of Malenka Originals, the Pop-Up Shop brings together passionate, local furniture painters with anyone looking to buy unique, solid wood furniture with a contemporary look. Pieces are all painted using Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan.
The show is put on annually in the Fall, in its new location of Somerset Square, across from Malenka Originals in Ottawa’s Hintonburg neighbourhood.
In February 2017, we were thrilled to be asked to bring the Refreshed Furniture Pop-Up Shop to the Ottawa Home and Remodelling Show. (And we’ve been invited again for 2018!)
The four-day event featured over 100 pieces of beautiful, upcycled furniture, hand-painted by local furniture painters in all shapes, sizes and colours.
In conjunction with the Pop-Up, Malenka Originals hosted a TRY DIY section where we held workshops and demos showcasing Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan, as well as other products for refreshing furniture.
Our Fifth Pop-Up on September 30th, 2017 was the best yet! We had a huge turnout, lots of furniture went to its new home(s), AND we finally got beautiful sunny weather (Yay! It only took five years).
We had a fantastic group of 14 local furniture artists who turned out an incredible array of upcycled pieces and decor.
Thank you to everyone who participated, and everyone who came to support this annual event!
