Deposit for Paint A Piece Workshop 06-26-2017

June 26 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm


PAINT A PIECE WORKSHOP –   $105.00  ($95 previous students $95, not to be combined with PAP Workshop coupon)   duration  3 – 4 hrs

Walk in with a tired piece of furniture, and go home with a brand new look!

Bring a chair or small furniture item (end table, nightstand, shelf, mirror, several drawers to a larger piece) that you can carry.


As a guide, pieces OVER 24 inches wide need to be pre-approved or you will not finish your whole piece.

If you are bringing PARTS to a larger piece, say drawers to a dresser or desk , 3-4 large drawers (wider than 18 inches) or 5-6 small drawers (12-18 inches wide) is a good estimate.

If you bring in something too large you will not be able to finish it in the time allotted, not to mention you will infringe on the next person’s space.

  • Make sure your item meets the size requirements, if it doesn’t then find something else.
  • Arrive with a clean and dry piece.  Clean with mild detergent, mineral spirits, or undiluted vinegar.  Scrub off any funky, crunchy stuff.
  • If your piece has chips or chunks, or holes or gouges,  and you DON’T want to see those flaws, then repair your piece before you arrive, otherwise it will ‘add character’.
  • Remove all hardware, and fill hardware holes with wood putty if you do not plan on reusing that same hardware. Bring hardware if you want to paint it.
  • Pick a Finish:  we have over 300 displayed sample finishes and finished furniture pieces in our showroom, to inspire you. Choose Chalk/Clay Paint single or layered color, Caromal Colour single or layered color, Chalk-Clay/Caromal Colour combo, Cottage Paint single or layered color, Botanical single or layered color, or one of our Metallic Finishes. You can even add a stencil if we have one that works for you.  If you can not pre-choose then arrive 1/2 hour prior to class for finish selection.

Patty will help guide and instruct you from start to finish. Have fun learning about our paints, even better see what other finishes are being created around you. Head home with A BRAND NEW PIECE and the knowledge and confidence to continue in your refinishing endeavors
