The Shabby.ie Collection
–Fleetwood furniture Paint-

We are delighted to announce the release of the Shabby.ie Furniture Paint Collection. This collection is an exclusive range of 27 colours, curated by the 2019 Fleetwood Upcycler of the Year and founder of Shabby.ie, Aileen Hogan. All colours available in selected Fleetwood stockists.


Aileen Hogan

Almost 10 years ago, as the world of interiors witnessed a surge in popularity repurposing old furniture, Tipperary-based Aileen Hogan founded Shabby.ie after restoring her mother’s old kitchen table to its former glory and has subsequently become Ireland’s leading upcycling supply specialist.

Following a career as a flight attendant spanning 20 years, Hogan identified a burgeoning community of Upcyclers who wanted to learn how to easily and professionally refinish tired or worn furniture and a niche for workshops, free advice and live tutorials.

She began manufacturing her own decorative furniture mouldings and in 2017, launched the Shabby School, the country’s first online learning platform for restyling furniture.

Originally from Dublin, Aileen Hogan was accepted to the Enterprise Ireland DCU Ryan Academy High Fliers Programme in March 2018 and accredited with the All Star Design Leader in Upcycling at the Croke Park All Star Business Summit.

Fleetwood Paints and Aileen kicked off 2019 with an online collaboration, creating 6 mini ‘How-to’ tutorials and info blog posts on how to take the reins and tackle the DIY paint jobs within the home.

In May 2019, Fleetwood Paints announced Aileen Hogan as the inaugural Irish Upcycler of the Year at House event and welcomed her on board to their Interior design team as their Upcycling ambassador. Aileen and Fleetwood Paints have collaborated together to create the new Shabby.ie Furniture Paint Colour Collection, a collection of high-quality interior and exterior pre-mixed paint in 27 shades, perfect for all furniture painting projects.
