Posh Chalk Interiors provides a path to sustainability, accessible to all who seek it – through the power of upcycling; offering furniture restoration workshops, and classes in upholstery, spray painting, candle making, basic joinery – as well as providing advice on how to sell one’s pieces post-restoration.
But not only does upcycling deliver great sustainability for a world which so desperately needs it. It also has a myriad of incredible therapeutic benefits. As with all mindful practices, the single-minded focus and presence required to upcycle furniture causes stress to dissolve. There is no longer room to think about the regrets of the past or the worries of the future; instead, there is just the here and now. There are a great many studies touting the efficacy of mindfulness and many more people that sing its praises.
