Tales of this Shopkeeper - Chalk Paint(tm) Workshop

What a great group of ladies we had last Thursday night for another exciting workshop on Chalk Paint Decorative Finishes by Annie Sloan!  Once again Debra was full of information and new ideas as she instructed the ladies.

What is it about people who sign up for these workshops?? I have not met a bad one fact, all of them are extremely nice! 

Is it working with your hands that makes you nice? Or keeps you balanced and therefore nice? Or keeps you using your creative bent and therefore you are content so you're nice??:)

These ladies brought their own small item to paint and in the process of three hours learned much more than just putting paint on a piece of furniture!

This lady raises horses.  That has to keep you nice!:)

Our beautiful summer employee, Alexis, even joined us......

Someone brought in a metal lamp that they had painted with Chalk Paint(TM) and had over waxed.  Here's Debra showing the remedy.....that was very helpful!

Debra used the new color "Florence" to demo with clear and dark wax.  Love it!!  Sooooo......
one more workshop behind us and a good time was had by all!  Our next dates coming up are:
July 19th and August to register soon as they fill up fast!
