Do you want to learn how to make over furniture? Have a piece of furniture sitting around you have been dying to paint but not sure where to start? GET READY and JOIN IN in this furniture painting basics workshop where you bring in your own furniture and I will work with you to make it over while I teach you how to do it! This is a VERY UNIQUE WORKSHOP where you can leave your piece in the studio and work on it over 4 workshops with pro painter Susie Myres teaching you and guiding you through the entire process of proper furniture painting.

Some Important Things To Know:

What can I bring into the class?

You will need to bring in your table or piece to paint. It must be approved by the instructor.  Dining room tables will not work due to the sanding requirements for refinishing table tops. But if you want to learn bare wood look techniques, you can bring flat top dressers or console tables to sand and learn on.  

You may bring your favorite paint or beverage and snacks. No hard liquor please. We will be serving light appetizers and refreshments 

Do I need to bring any tools or supplies?

All tools and non-paint supplies for this class will be provided for the students. Paint must be purchased  OR BROUGHT TO CLASS

Should I wear special clothing for painting?

That's up to you. Full bib aprons will be provided, however there WILL be creativity and PAINT is involved. 

Can I get in touch with you if I have questions?

Call Susie at the shop (262) 457-4180 or send us a message through Facebook  Further contact info will be made available on your ticket. 

Can I cancel? What's the refund policy?

We get it, life happens and you may need to reschedule. We will be fully preparing for all students so there are no refunds, but if you need to cancel, your registration can be applied toward any other class.
