New Furniture Painting 101 Workshop

Our next painting workshop is scheduled!

Sorry for the delay…we’ve been busy re-vamping the shop with new merchandise and busy painting new furniture pieces, of course!
Workshop will be held
Sunday, May 4th 5:00-8:00pm
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!

This dresser was painted one color and then finished with a wash of a Paris Grey:

This buffet shows an example of using the dark wax and buffing to a shine:

Another technique we will go over, is layering colors and doing a 2-color distress. Like this:

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