Paint it Vintage Style
Bring a small piece of your own to paint in the color of your choice… a cabinet door, picture frame, sconces or other accessory piece, lamp base, small table, etc. (your piece should be able to fit in the overhead bin on an airplane). Obviously, the smaller the piece you bring, the more likely you are to totally finish the piece in the workshop. You will learn to test the existing finish to determine what surface preparation is needed. Because there is usually no need to sand or prime, the surface only needs to be patched and cleaned. The group will choose from several options of decorative painted finishes, three of which will be completed in the workshop on sample boards along with your furniture piece. You will be given the freedom to choose your paint colors and be guided in color selection as needed. We’ll provide munchies and all supplies for use in class. Class offered Oct. 2 at 9 a.m. or Nov. 13 at 5 p.m.
