Shabby spotlight.

Sew darn pretty vintage home.

Hi everyone so I wanted to do a shabby chic spotlight and spread the love to an adorable independent Irish business. I am a big fan of Aileen from and her store in Borrisokane co. Tipperary. 

Aileen is the face behind the largest supplier of handcrafted mouldings and appliques for furniture in Ireland. 

You probably have seen me use these on a lot of my upcycle pieces in my home. I have used them on my fireplace, bed, chairs, anything that I want to add an extra touch of detail I use these. 

Now the best news is that are now passing on the wholesale prices to us the customer so we can bypass the shops and the markups and get more profit on our pieces.

I haven’t visited the store but I am dying to visit, from the pictures and videos posted on their facebook page I can only imagine how vintage and adorable it is.

They also stock a large range of up cycling supplies such as General Finishes milk paint and gel stain, decoupage supplies and chalk paint and lots of fun stencils and home decor items. 

I haven’t used any of the General Finishes items but their milk paint is definitely on my experiment list to try. Its also great to buy from an Irish stockist as you can quick postage and your not waiting weeks for delivery. 

Also Aileen regularly hosts shabby chic skill workshops and only recently held an up cycle Ikea box day in Dublin were people were taught paint and decoupage skills. 

You can keep an eye on the facebook page for updates on all the future classes and events. 

Also have a look over on the sew darn pretty you tube page for lots of helpful DIY videos, my fave is the decoupage hand soap diy. 

Let me know if you have visited the adorable store and tag me in your pics of your beautiful up cycles over on Instagram.

As always leave your link below to your blog for me to have a peep. 

Chat soon,
