About the Event
Transform your OLD to NEW!
Ronnie LOVES to turn old, not so pretty furniture into beautiful furniture and wants to share that knowledge with you. Yes, you can learn how to prep, paint and seal your old pieces, it’s that easy and you can do it too all with Dixie Belle chalk paint.
Learn the basics of painting on your small wooden pieces. You will learn how to prep your piece, paint with one color, how to distress and seal your piece all in 4 ½ hours.
The very best part is YOU will have transformed your old piece into a new creation. You will also walk away with the knowledge to continue painting other pieces. Sorry we do not perform repairs, work with upholstery, or traditional restoration stripping & staining.
Choose your one color of paint and pay in advance in person or over the phone at least 4 days prior to the workshop. Space is limited to three people, so get your tickets early to ome learn from Ronnie all the correct steps. Ronnie is a Premier retailer for Dixie Belle and Ronnie has extensive knowledge on painting furniture.
What do I bring? You will bring in any SMALL wood item: a couple of picture frames, a table top jewelry box, a shelf, a chair/stool, maybe even a small side table – nothing bigger than 2 feet tall. If you have a large dresser you want to paint, you can bring in up to 3 drawers and then take the knowlede home to paint the rest of your piece. 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! 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.
What does Red Barn Boutique provide? Consider us the concierge of mineral 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, paint brushes, sealer, and let's not forget the cleanup. 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!
What’s Next? 1. Let us 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 a $12.95 value to keep!!! There are 64 fantastic colors to choose from, so once you pick your color choice, contact us either here or through our Facebook event post, so we can set it aside for you.
2. You MUST send us a photo of your piece. 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 a mahogany or wood that is prone to bleed through if you are going to paint it white? This is IMPERATIVE to an excellent finished product! Send that photo to info@RedBarnBoutique.net
We look forward to a lot of laughter and fun!
FAQs Is there an age limit to enter the event? For this class we suggest the minimum age to be at least 12 years old accompanied with 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. Unfortunately if you bring a piece too large, than you will not be able to participate, so send us a picture of your piece. You will need to be able to carry your piece. 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 bring in up to three drawers for a dresser and work on the rest at home.
Will we be able to use stains, glazes, multiple colors? Great questions. Generally, these will all need additional time. So please consult with us 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.
What if it rains? Can I leave my treasure at your store? Absolutely! You can come back to pick up your piece with in a few days.
Is my registration/ticket transferable? All registrations must be paid in advance to ensure materials and set up is ready for you.
