Dixie Belle "Paint Your Own Piece" Basics Class - Friday, August 21 (5:30p - 8:30p)
*PLEASE READ BEFORE REGISTERING FOR CLASS*
Transform your furniture piece in this chalk mineral paint basics class! Learn the Basics on a small piece of furniture you bring in. Prep - One Color Paint - Distress - Protect all in 3+ hours!
The best part is – you will leave with a small piece of furniture transformed by YOU plus the confidence and support to continue painting even after the class ends! Sorry we do not perform repairs, upholstery, or traditional restoration stripping & staining.
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; you can bring it! No sanding or prep work is needed before we meet. Just wipe the cobwebs and dust off. 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 Homefeathers provide?
Our class is limited in participant size to provide a guided hands-on experience. We provide all the supplies and tools needed for you to be successful – from set up to paint, paint brushes, sandpaper, and sealer and clean-up. Plus, you keep what is left in your 8-oz. jar of Dixie Belle Paint.
There are 64 fantastic colors to choose from, so once you know your color contact us either through our Facebook messenger, email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone at 469.285.4616.
If you do not call ahead with your color choice, we cannot guarantee it will be in stock on the day of the event.
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.
Will we be able to use stains, glazes, multiple colors?
Generally these will all need additional time, some with a 24-48 hour cure time prior to the next step. 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 later in the week or the very next day to pick it up.
Is my registration/ticket transferable?
All registrations must be paid in advance to ensure materials and set up is ready for you. If you cannot attend at the last minute and would like to transfer your registration to someone that is fine with us. Please call 469-285-4616 to notify us of the change. No refunds unless the class is cancelled.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?If you have any questions please call us at 469-285-4616 or message us through Facebook.
Each class is limited to 4 people.
This class will be held in the Ennis Event Center (the same building where Homefeathers is located) thanks to the generosity of the building owners.
