Paint Your Own Furniture (PYOF) Workshop

 

During this four-hour workshop, you will clean, paint and seal a small piece of furniture or home decor.  Bring a small piece of furniture or wood home décor piece. I.e. a couple of medium-sized picture frames or one large one, a shelf, a chair or stool, maybe even a small side table. A good rule of thumb: if you can carry it by yourself without cart assist, you can bring it! No sanding or prep work is needed before we meet; just wipe the dust off.  *Repairs should be done before the workshop.

When: Wednesday, July 12th 4-8pm  

Where: Colliope Co 2706 N Silverbell Rd, Ste 3140, Tucson AZ

Cost: $120

Follow the link to check availability & register. Calendar | Colliope Co

Workshop Includes: All supplies and tools needed for you to complete your piece, cleaning to painting to sealing. Plus, you keep what’s left in your 8 oz jar of Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint ($15 value), what’s left in your 8 oz Satin Clear Coat ($15 value),  a DBP Premium Chip brush ($8 value), and a good synthetic brush ($12.00 value). Your complete starter kit for continued painting! You will also receive a 10% off coupon for DBP products. 

What's next? After you register for the workshop, email l.clarke@lefrenchhen.com or call 520-490-8296 with your color selection at least three days prior to class.  You can also meet me for a color/project consultation at Collipe Co on Thursdays prior to the class. Please send us a photo of your piece. Does it have a super glossy finish? Is it mahogany or other wood prone to bleed through if you are going to paint it white? This way we can anticipate if your piece needs prep work with Slick Stick or BOSS before you begin. Send photo to l.clarke@lefrenchhen.com.

After this workshop, you will leave with a piece of furniture or home decor you transformed plus the confidence and support to continue painting even after the class ends! Voila!

Bring a blanket to cushion and cover your masterpiece during transporation home.
