Chalk Paint® 102
Saturday, February 25, 2017
Begin experimenting with the versatility of Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan by creating more visual depth and interest using washes and stains with Chalk Paint®. You will learn distressing techniques as well as how to use Chalk Paint® as a wash and stain. This class will take your next project from ordinary to extraordinary.

NEW! Cabinet Makeover
Saturday, February 11, 2017
Get the look of new cabinets without breaking the bank and update your tired space with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan. For this class, you must bring a cabinet door (no larger than 18"x24") or a drawer front from your own kitchen, bath or laundry room. You will learn how to test the existing finish to determine what surface preparation is needed. Because there is usually NO NEED TO SAND OR PRIME, the surface may only need to be patched and cleaned. In this class you will be allowed to choose a paint color and finish to complete on your cabinet door or drawer front. At the end of the class, you'll learn how to maintain your painted cabinets. We suggest bringing color references and photos of the space you'll be painting. Prerequisite: Chalk Paint® 101 or other Chalk Paint® class. Class size is limited to 4 people. *If you're looking for a high-gloss manufactured finish, this may not be the class for you.
Paint with Me

Friday, February 17, 2017
This is the perfect workshop for you if you already have a project you would like to paint with guidance. You must be able to carry your project under one arm (2'x3'). Perhaps that will be an accent piece, a lamp or a chair. You could also bring a cabinet door or drawer to test a certain color or finish. Our paint instructor will be available to assist with color and basic technique. She can guide you through the process (this is not an actual instructional class...guidance only). ALL Chalk Paint® colors, wax and brushes will be provided. You will leave with the confidence to finish your project at home. Be careful, as Chalk Paint® can become addictive!
