It is time to start talking about fun plans for fall! I have several workshops that I can't wait to launch! The first workshop will be in October and will be covering painting basics. A great idea came to me over the weekend. At least I think it's a great idea....and I hope you do too! It is something I had not thought of previously, but several couples approached me at my booth last weekend, talking about their projects.....then the idea hit. A "couples" workshop!
"What should we do with this old chest?"
"I don't know....it's been collecting dust for like 5 years. It doesn't match our house. I'd like to hold onto it though. It was my grandma's.
"Can we use it for toy storage in the basement?"
"Maybe. It's really a unique piece though. I hate to stick it down there. What if we restored it?"
"Like stain it?"
"Or.....what if we painted it. Our house needs some color. I have no idea where to start though".
"Do we have time?"
"Not at all.....but I don't want to get rid of it yet."
If you and your spouse have had a conversation like this before, or have projects on your "to-do" list but don't have the skills or confidence to tackle them alone, than this is a workshop you won't want to miss. The best part is that you will walk away with a new piece of furniture that you painted! And once you learn the basics, you will have what you need to restore a variety of your pieces......on your own!
Workshop space will be limited so keep your eyes open for registration! I will be sending out more details on the workshop in the September newsletter. I will also be posting details on my blog and on facebook!
I am really looking forward to this event! Soon my preparation for the workshop will be underway... I really want it to feel as close to a studio/workshop painting experience as possible. So I had better get on that!
In the meantime think about how awesome it would be to finally get that project underway...and completed! Same old piece; fresh new look! Painting Basics is your ticket!
