Maximum of 8 workshop participants, minimum of 4
Cost of workshop: $25.00

Do you often admire painted furniture and cabinetry featured in magazines or on TV. You know the pieces I’m talking about. They have multiple layers of paint, distressed areas, unique hardware, decorative wood details, etc. The process of reviving your old furniture is both easy and inexpensive.

I will show you how to breathe new life into your furniture, cabinets, mirrors, picture frames, etc. Caromal Colours Country Living Paints and products are featured in my makeovers. They are user friendly, “green”, and produce excellent results.

Please bring pictures of your furniture or cabinets you want to makeover and also pics from magazines with the look you would like to achieve. We will paint, distress, age, change hardware, etc., on some of my work projects. The finishes we can reproduce are endless. You will paint 2 wood samples to take home and admire. I’m looking forward to seeing you.
