Breathe new life into old furniture or home accessories by using some of the newest and trendiest paints on the market. In this class you’ll learn to transform dark and dingy furniture into fabulous vintage styles that will echo the beauty of the natural wood, highlighted with a protective tinted finishing wax or glaze for that timeless look of a country classic. We’ll go over all of the finishing tips and tricks of using waxes, glazes and color to create the French “battered” look, the cool of watery blues or the warmth of the Tuscany sun. Chalk paints, milk paints, and some of the new acrylics give a beautiful velvety matt finish and can be painted over old wood, metal and plastic. You’ll learn stencil, border, and hand painting techniques that can enhance the surface of your work. Bring in anything you have been wanting to transform - lamps, frames, urns, chandeliers, baskets, benches, and boxes are a few suggestions. This course is for students of any level.
