Painting Furniture Workshop
I love showing friends how to use different paint products to update their furniture. They’re always surprised how easy the process is and that their furniture can be re-styled in just a few hours.
The furniture workshop is a favorite of mine and Sara’s. We have a class maximum of 4 people who bring a piece of furniture from home to makeover. We provide the workspace, paints, tools, toners, waxes, and whatever else they may need to beautify their furniture.
There’s also snacks, drinks(no hardstuff) and a brown bag lunch from Silke’s. What more could you ask for! We also provide guidance and entertainment(otherwise known as our usual craziness).

How To Paint Furniture
Isn’t this vanity to-die-for. Pam did an awesome job on it. She used off-white Reclaim and then went crazy with the sander. She and Terry are going to use this piece to display jewelry at shows. The mirror space is going to be filled in with something special to hang the jewelry on.
Terry and her $10.00 yard sale purchase. She used CeCe Caldwells chalk/clay paint in Vermont Gray and dry brushed the edges, drawers, and handles with off-white. This is also going to be used to display jewelry.
How classy is this! Dawn used Reclaim Licorice and distressed the edges of the table. It also has a leaf with it which makes it a very large oval table.
Jean and her pair of antique tables. She used Caromal Colours Paprika and waxed it but the wax hadn’t been polished up in these pics.
and just a few pictures of the process
The workshop is from 9 am to 3 pm and these projects were finished, dry, and ready to take home at the end of the day! Wasn’t that fun. What a sense of accomplishment plus a beautiful creation to brag about to your friends.
Thanks for stopping by,
