Come learn with Lynne from A Fresh Coat of Fabulous all of the right steps! She is an Elite retailer who has been painting furniture professionally for many years.
What do I bring?
You will bring in any small wood item: a couple of picture frames, a shelf, a chair/stool, maybe even a small side table – nothing bigger than 2 feet tall/wide (A good rule of thumb: if you can carry it by yourself with one hand- you can bring it!) No sanding or prep work is needed before we meet just wipe the cobwebs and dust off. Also, consider wearing comfortable clothes and something you do not mind getting paint on –just in case. We do provide aprons and brushes!
Also consider how you are taking your freshly refinished piece back home with you. You may want to bring a blanket to cushion and cover your masterpiece for its ride home.
Snacks and drinks are permitted and encouraged. 🙂
What does A Fresh Coat of Fabulous provide?
Consider us the concierge of chalk painting classes!
Our classes are purposefully limited in participant size to provide a guided hands-on experience from a certified instructor. We provide all the supplies and tools needed for you to be successful– from set up to paint, sand paper, and sealer, and let’s not forget the clean up. Plus, you keep all your non-consumable supplies including what is left in your 8-oz. jar of Dixie Belle Paint and 4 oz of Satin Clear Coat Sealer.
Think of it as a learner’s kit to continue painting!
1. Let’s set aside your jar of paint —- We need to know your COLOR selection!!! Remember… you will receive an entire 8 oz. jar as part of your registration fee!!!That is an $13 value to keep!!!
There are 64 fantastic colors to choose from, so once you know your Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint color contact Lynne through the Facebook event post, so we can set aside your paint.
2. Please send us a PHOTO of your piece at least four days prior to class. This way we can anticipate if your item happens to need a little prep work with Slick Stick or BOSS before you begin. Does it have a super glossy finish? Is it mahogany or wood that is prone to bleed through if you are going to paint it white? If so, Lynne will have bring this to the store for you to pick up prior to class to save valuable class time. Send a photo of your class piece to AFreshCoatofFabulous@yahoo.com as soon as you register.
We look forward to a lot of laughter and fun!
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
For this class we suggest the minimum age to be at least 14 years old accompanied by a parent.
What can’t I bring to the event?
Please DO NOT bring large/heavy items as we cannot accommodate the loading/unloading necessary for the event. Plus, we only have a few hours together and it would take much longer for larger items like dressers, chest of drawers, etc. to paint/dry/seal. You can however bring 1-2 drawers if you can carry them with one hand.
Will we be able to use stains, glazes, multiple colors?
Great questions. Generally these will all need additional time. So please consult with Lynne prior to the day of class so we can make arrangements and discuss. Staining generally requires full sanding on your part prior to bringing in – again let’s talk. AFreshCoatofFabulous@yahoo.com
What if it rains? Class will still happen! Bring blankets, small tarp, or umbrella to cover your small piece.
Is my registration/ticket transferable?
All registrations must be paid in advance to ensure materials and set up is ready for you and classes are non refundable. If you cannot attend, you may send someone in your place. The paint color however is subject to availability.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
If you have any questions regarding the class, or wish to set up a private class with 2-3 friends, please contact Lynne at AFreshCoatofFabulous@yahoo.com
