“Intro to {re}imagining With Paint” Class 

This class is a wonderful, informative hands on class.

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)

We will be painting a take home project, a cabinet door (that I provide) that we will practice on using my chalk paints.

Class length and lunch is approximately 3 hours. (This is a great thing to do with your daughter/mother or sisters or best friends. Last time we had a few mother/daughter and sister combinations, they had a blast!)

The cost of this class is $ 55.00 (Includes the cost of cabinet door and use of stencils to make a cool wall hanging or tray!!)  (limit of 12)

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.

“Studio” Time

I have had requests to have what I will call, “Studio” Time.  This is a scheduled time that you can bring your own furniture and own paint and come paint with me while I am working on a project.  I will be there to help you with any questions or techniques.

  • Perhaps you have a large piece you just are afraid to tackle alone.
  • Maybe you are trying a new technique and want my help.
  • Maybe you just want the fellowship, and the mess to be in MY ‘studio’ (which sounds so funny to me, it is more like a shop Winking smile)

The cost for “Studio Time” will be $15.00 per hour.  (discount available for more than one person, up to three people)

If you are interested in a class, email me to see if I have any scheduled.

The 21st might be tricky to make I already have a client booked that afternoon, and the 28th we will be celebrating Momma’s bday. I will try to make it whatever day you choose. Thanks, can’t wait!

  18. Sherry Palmer

    Would like to reserve a spot for the 3/3 Intro class. Do you have Annie Sloan chalk paints and/or waxes available for sale, or is there a stockist in the area? Coming from Battle Creek and hoping to stock up on materials Saturday while in the area as well. Really looking forward to the class! May bring a friend, just need class times before I can commit to another spot.
    So excited!
