Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint
Get ready to be excited about painting furniture and cabinetry! Whether repurposing vintage pieces or starting with a new cabinet, Annie refers to her "purpose made paint" as the "best paint in the world for furniture" due to it's simplicity.
"Quick and Easy Paint Transformations for Furniture"
Learn Annie's "Core Techniques" with variations.
Skill level: An introductory workshop for both the DIY enthusiast with an interest in painting and interior design, and the professional decorative painter
Workshop Fee: $195.00 - Includes the book by Annie Sloan
Learn the proper surface cleaning and preparation techniques for creating a professional looking finish on furniture and cabinetry. The good news is that there is NO PRIMING or SANDING REQUIRED.
“Annie’s Classic Six” finishes include applying two colors to achieve the classic Shabby Chic French look, blending two or more colors on the surface for a clouded look, applying a washed pickled effect, crackling the paint to give it some character, creating an impasto rustic (thick) finish, and distressing and aged finishes with clear, dark and tinted waxes.
You will complete six "hands-on" samples on decorative molding pieces and then create your own "custom" cabinet door. Lunch, all supplies for use in class and Annie's book "Quick and Easy Paint Transformations" are included in the class fee.
