DRAB to FAB Furniture Workshop - only two slots left

Small Furniture Workshop, Saturday, May 3rd, 10:00am to 4:00pm. Do you have a small piece of furniture that is just waiting for a face lift? Are you confused about all the new products that advertise "quick and easy" furniture painting solutions?

Join us and get some help in designing a new, updated look with a new Chalky Paint system by Deco Art.

Step 1 - this is the original table we chose for the project

Step 2 - this is the next step in the process. The table has been painted with two coats of chalky finish paint, right over the drab wood (I just washed the table to remove the oily patina collected from years of use.

Step 3 - I chose to embellish this table with some stenciling. The table, now painted a soft grey, was stenciled with a darker grey, then lightly sanded over the stenciling and edges of the table to give it a vintage look. A protective layer of clear wax, then some tinted wax, complete the process.

Isn't that just FAB?

Please join us - $95 for the day includes all paints, supplies and a light lunch. Just bring the piece of furniture you would like to revitalize and be prepared to have some fun. And remember - only 2 slots left.
