Well our first “Upcycling Your Furniture with DIY Paint” was such a hit we are having an encore class so participants can bring additional friends and family. We are meeting again on July 10th at 9:30. We will start at Tangewood Works, 4641 Tanglewood Drive and then begin our painting journey.
Yep, we are showing you how you can master our new paint line Debi’s Design Diary Chalk and Clay DIY paint with a new New Chalk & Clay Painting Class at Tanglewood Works June. 4th.
Our goal at Tanglewood Works is not only to showcase upcycled furniture, but to help members of our DC, Maryland and Virginia communities Do It Yourself at an affordable price. For 65.00 we are helping you get started on your DIY painting journey. YOu’ll learn how to prepare your furniture for chalk/clay painting, how to use your brush, how to get different textures and most importantly, how to seal your piece for years of use.
We have created this class to help those of you who have already made purchases of our new paint and those of you thinking about taking the leap into upcycling and furniture painting.
Please let your friends know about this fun class. Thank you in advance for helping to support your local small business, Tanglewood Works.
