* BRING YOUR OWN PIECE

Do you have a tired looking piece of furniture moping around the house?  Join us at our warehouse studio and let us help you transform it into something fresh that works with your current decor.

This session is for anyone who wants to learn about Chalk Paint™ while jumping right into refinishing a small furniture piece.  You will have the benefit of a trained Chalk Paint™ instructor guiding you through the process of achieving a finish of your choice.  You will have access to all the beautiful Annie Sloan colours, an opportunity to try the selection Annie Sloan brushes, and instruction on the proper techniques for waxing with clear, dark, black and/or white wax for the perfect finishing touches.

We recommend this class for beginners, or for those who have already taken Chalk Paint 101 and learned the basics. While you paint, we will be there to offer tips & advice to help you get beautiful results.

All tools & supplies are included. You just need to bring a small piece of furniture - i.e. something that will fit on top of a table for easy painting: a chair, small side table, picture frames etc.  Roughly no bigger than 3' x 2' is a good guideline to use when deciding what to bring.  If you have a larger piece that you would like to work on, but it’s too big for this class - we recommend bringing a couple of it's drawers or doors and we can help you get a start on it!  You can then bring your knowledge and confidence home with you to finish up the project.  If you can bring an inspirational photo of how you would like the finished piece to look this can be really helpful!  (Pinterest is a great resource.)

Classes are limited to 8 people so that we can offer as much one on one instruction as possible.

Skill Level:  All students - ChalkPaint™ 101 can be a helpful class to take beforehand if you would like to experiment with a variety of colours and techniques before deciding on the finish for your piece.

Cost:  $165+hst. You can reserve your space by paying in-store or over the phone with a valid credit card.
A non-refundable deposit of $80 will be retained for all cancellations with less than 7 days advance notice.
