Workshop Schedule 2013 – Launching Our New Store The Fun Way!

I apologize again for not having the new workshop schedule up.   I’m probably losing potential attendees and for that I am sorry…

The delay is two-fold –  partly I am in the midst of  a marathon race to February 1st when we launch the grand opening of our NEW store location (getting so excited!)


and,  the other part is I am trying to clean up my workshop site, changing it to monthly interactive calendars which is all good, BUT it’s a slow process, trying to figure out ‘how’ to pretty up that calendar display etc etc…

SO – in the mean time,   I am here to share the scheduled dates – this full schedule should be available on the updated workshop page soon.

Who’s looking for an evening out? Be it an escape from a rigorous daily schedule, an outlet for some creativity to flow, an evening spent in company with other attendees – maybe even a few of your friends… a class where you can walk in with a tired piece of furniture, and go home with a freshly painted finish that YOUR hands created? My gosh, we ALL need one of these every now and then right?

Come for a few hours, with a group of friends (bottle of whatever completely optional) , and have some fun learning how to use some really cool paints.

Bring a chair or like size item THAT YOU CAN CARRY IN YOURSELF.  (see this post about item size http://fabulousfinishes.wordpress.com/2012/10/05/what-should-i-bring-to-paint-at-your-workshop/ ).  Decide on your finish – there are many options – Caromal Colours Single or Multi Color, CeCe Caldwell Single or Multi-Color,  Caromal Colours/CeCe Caldwell Combo, Metallic Finish ($10 upcharge).   You’ll find something you love – we have over 350 sample finishes on display for you to ponder.  After that we’ll dive in and begin our finishes, step by step, hands on, from prep to topcoat, See what others around you are creating, and best of all head home with your own transformed piece!

Workshop Fee: $90, $45 due at registration, $45 payable at start of class. Class limit 12. Length 4 hours. (metallic finishes add $10)   Repeat workshop attendee’s save $15.

Birthdays, Showers, Girls Night Out? With a group of 8-12, call or stop in to schedule your own private party.

Pictures coming soon of our new workroom, which is located behind this door-


yesterday they were hanging lights, next will be the 12 overhead blow dryers!  In the meantime,  a peak at the showroom area taking root –


I’m getting tinglies in my stomach, less than 30 days away…     Hope to see you SOON –    we’ll have a blast painting up a storm!
