BYOF Workshop

We are planning on having a BYOF Workshop on Saturday, October 20, 2012.  We have space for 1-2 more people.   Here is the description of the workshop.  Let me know a.s.a.p. if you are interested.  I am so looking forward to the workshop, hope to see you there!

Intro/BYOF Workshop

This class includes everything the “Intro” class does, but instead of painting a frame at the end of the class, you will be painting a small piece of furniture that you bring.

We go over the foundations of {re}imagining with paint.

Class includes:

  • descriptions of different types of finishes

  • basics using, spray paint, latex and chalk paint

  • how to distress and how NOT to

  • antiquing with glaze, waxes, stains etc..

  • glazes and waxes

  • stains and poly finishes

  • your very own brush

  • use of my Annie Sloan Chalk Paints ™paints and waxes

  • Lunch (depending on the day of class)


These workshops are designed to allow you to {re}imagine your own piece using my paint, waxes, supplies and space. Thereby keeping the mess in my workshop.

There will certainly be some variables depending on size of furniture, but in general this is what the workshop will include:

  • you bring your own piece *

  • use of all my products and tools that will be needed to paint, distress and wax

  • my help and instruction every step of the way

  • very small class size to ensure personal and individual attention and instruction

  • email consultations on what to bring, what color and types of finishes, hardware replacement (if needed) etc..

The cost for the “Intro/BYOF” Workshop is $100.00 (limit of 5)

Colors will be limited to colors I have on hand or would be willing to purchase

* for these workshops your piece of furniture needs to be something in the lines of an end table, nightstand, small occasional table, coffee table, chair, shutter, etc.

If you have a larger piece requiring more time and more product we can certainly adjust the cost and schedule more time or an alternative workshop. I have had people bring two smaller pieces or a large dresser and I just add my cost for the product and for extra time.
