Chalk Paint® Paint A Piece Furniture Painting Workshop

Additional Information

Chalk Paint® Paint A Piece Furniture Painting Workshop - Bring Your Own Piece or 2 cabinet doors to the shop!! Use my materials and tools, and I will walk you through the process to a finished piece, or updating your kitchen!!

What we cover:

1. How to spot a good piece - What to look for in a quality piece, and where to find them.

2. What is Chalk Paint®? - How this amazing paint came into being, and why it's different from everything else!

3. Tools of the Trade - This is all about the brushes, their uses, and how to care for them.

4. Basic paint application - How to get the paint on the piece correctly! Old painting habits you'll need to break, etc.

5. Distressing - This isn't for everyone, but I'll cover the best methods and techniques as well as where distress looks best on furniture and decor. In the interest of time, distress will be restricted to edges only. If you're interested in heavier distress, please plan on making those adjustments to your piece at home.

6. Clear Wax - How to seal and protect Chalk Paint®. What tools are best, as well as tips and tricks.

7. Dark, Black, and White Waxes - Get the "Down and Dirty" on antiquing and adding patina with Annie Sloan's accent Waxes! Please plan on detail waxing during the workshop only. Heavy or all-over accent waxing can be demonstrated, but because we are limited on time, please plan on adding more wax to your piece at home.

8. Aftercare - How to care for and maintain your finished piece.

Guidelines:

1.Bring a small piece furniture with a footprint NO LARGER than 24″x24", or two small kitchen cabinet doors -  (plant stand, small side table, foot stool, suitcase, or perhaps a cupboard door or drawer from a larger piece you'd like to paint at home.). We need to make sure there is enough room for everyone, so please be considerate. If you can’t carry the piece in by yourself, unassisted and in one trip, it’s TOO BIG. (See the photo on the right for reference. - We reserve the right to refuse pieces too large for completion in this workshop, and will reschedule the client for another date.)
2. Please bring a piece for interior use. - Hands on waxing is essential to a successful piece, and outdoor pieces are never sealed with wax.
3. Pieces that have slats, multiple spindles, or shutters take a lot time! - Try to avoid bringing them.
4. Choose ONE color from our fabulous 42 color choices! - Sorry, no custom color mixing or layering colors in this class!! (You can learn those techniques in our Intro to the Annie Sloan Method class. See below!) Please click HERE to view the Chalk Paint® color palette! 
5. Workshop fee is PER PERSON - (That means you can’t bring your BFF, Soulmate, Children, Mom, etc.)
6. No mirrors or glass - (We’ve had some "oops" moments in the shop!)

The fee for this class is $95, and pre-pay is required

Just bring your beautiful self and your SMALL (see above details) piece of furniture. You will be using our paint and supplies! Try to arrive 15 minutes early. It helps move things along if you have a color in mind, but we can help you if you’re undecided! Aprons are provided.
