The Blue Willow Story

Melanie has worked as a Primary Teacher for over 15 years. Whilst raising her three children, she took a break from the classroom and spent time creating and painting. She has taught hundreds of women how to up-cycle furniture through her painting workshops.

Moving to the beautiful Sapphire Coast inspired Melanie to express her love of the area on canvas. Her style can be interpreted as ‘calm coastal’. Melanie’s Art is on display at The Essence of Our Merimbula or her Studio in Tura Beach.

Inquiries are Welcome for Commission Artwork.

I absolutely enjoyed my day today, it was so nice to have a day without the kids. Mel is so lovely & really knows her stuff. I can't believe how good my table looks now. I can't wait for the next class. The lunch she put on was beautiful too.


Fantastic day, learnt new skills and had a fabulous time. Mel is a brilliant teacher.


Such a relaxing time, lots of laughs and fun. The best thing is you walk away with a gorgeous product! Thanks Mel.


Mel’s workshop was so much fun... I highly recommend them. Mel is the hostess with the mostest, she’s passionate, creative and makes the day so enjoyable. Painting is infectious and you leave with a finished project. Thanks Mel for a great morning.


Mel, was referred to me by a friend. It was my first time painting a piece of furniture with mineral paint. I purchased Fusion Mineral Paint & wax from Mel and after countless questions (and there were lots) I was able to complete my Piece.
Mel, answered all my questions without hesitation and her assistance and knowledge was extremely helpful for me achieve my desired outcome with my buffet. I highly recommend this beautiful lady and Blue Willow Vintage for all your furniture painting projects.


Mel is wonderful, had so much fun. Just relaxing with a brush... A wonderful excuse for coffee and friends to get together...5 stars!


Mel, you are so creative! Each class I have done with Blue Willow Vintage has been so much fun and I have loved learning a new craft.
