Add some spunk to your junk and create a functional work of art by customizing a small piece of furniture to reflect your own style. This class will teach you how to turn your old, tired furniture into something adorable and artistic that you can be proud of for years!
In this two-day, hands-on class you will learn:
- How to prep both finished and unfinished furniture
- The types of paint available for use and how to apply them
- The tools needed to complete your project from start to finish
- How to accessorize your piece with decoupage, stamping and other materials
No experience needed; this class fits all skill levels. You will need to bring a small table, bookcase, or other piece of furniture smaller than 30" x 30" that you are able to lift and carry into the classroom. The class will provide access to the paints, tools, and techniques needed to complete your project.
