#25 Project Transformation 9: Nagymaros, Hungary!

How wonderful to feature this lovely #25Project all the way from the picturesque little town located on the banks of the Danube, Nagymaros. Below are photos of the transformation, but do also check out this video by a local news station too. My Hungarian may not be up to scratch but I can see the fabulous work that was put in to this whole project very clearly!

The wonderful volunteers! 
The cultural centre is used for concerts, children's theatre, choir and dance rehearsals and exhibitions by the local community, but was in desperate need of some love and attention as it hadn't been updated for 24 years! 
Before. The space hadn't been updated for 24 years! 
The wonderful and hands-on Eniko, my Hungarian distributor, along with a local community hero Katalin, rallied around volunteers and stockists for 4 days of transformation, working from their lovely mood board. 

The mood boards for the space, with Chalk Paint® and Coloured Linen. 
First came the upholstery workshop where nearly 50 chairs were painted and given new fabric from my Coloured Linens.

Then the great hall and smaller areas were all given an update with Chalk Paint®, Wax and Stencils. I especially love the stairs leading up to the stage, painted in Aubusson Blue and Paris Grey and finished with a thin coat of Lacquer

The best thing about this transformation is that the work by the wonderful volunteers has led to other acts of goodwill and generosity that has meant that the centre now has repaired walls, ceiling and new curtains too! 

Thank you to all people who have worked on this project, what a fantastic asset to a wonderful town! 




  1. Motivational story with lots of hope in it and you can learn a lot from this platform. I will throughly read all your blogs.

  2. Great stuff. May I ask what your total cost was? And why Hungary?

  3. Wow.. You people have totally changed the look of the home. It is a nice way to keep the kids and elders busy. I am sure they would have enjoyed this activity.
