Furniture Painting 101 Workshops

After a busy month preparing and setting up at the Springfield Extravaganza Flea Market in the Vintage Marketplace, we are exhausted but ready to get back in the swing of things! Starting with getting more workshops on the schedule. Now that the weather is getting nicer, everyone is requesting classes and wants to start their summer projects! Here is what we have on the calendar:

Monday July 7th 6:00-9:00pm

Cost is $75

All supplies and projects are provided.

In this class you will learn various techniques that be used on plastic, metal, wood, painted wood, anything! Check out our April blog post for examples of some of the techniques you will learn. Although we call this a “furniture painting” workshop, you can apply what you learn to paint frames, outdoor furniture and pots, cabinets, etc.

With all of the techniques we learn, we will primarily be using Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan. Give your tired, dated pieces a new life!
