The Blue Willow Story

Hi, I’m Mel, I live with my husband and three children on the beautiful Sapphire Coast NSW, Australia.

I’ve been upcycling and painting furniture for over 10 years. I have a passion for giving an old, unwanted piece of furniture new life.

Painting furniture started as a hobby. Something to do while I was home with the children. We had dark brown dated furniture. I was desperate for new … but couldn’t afford the price tag. I attended a furniture painting workshop... and I was addicted! I painted all of our furniture piece, piece by piece, room by room. The sense of achievement was amazing, particularly for my mental health. 

Painting was my newfound love and saviour. I found the benefits of painting supported me through times of struggle and uncertainty. It not only relieved my stress and anxiety, it also increased my sense of worth and accomplishment. I honestly believe it helped with my healing. I decided to combine my love of teaching with my passion for painting.

I realised I could pass on my knowledge to others and started furniture painting workshops. It allowed women a lovely day out learning a new skill.

I now offer a large variety of workshops where we create take home projects in my home studio.

I hope you are inspired and empowered to make a start on your painting journey.

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.
