Black Dog Furniture Paint Classes

 

NEW Cabinetry Painting Workshop

Tired of your kitchen cabinets? Want to try your hand at painting them but need some guidance?

Our Cabinetry Painting Workshop will give you the confidence you need to affordably update your kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities. We will walk you through the process from cleaning and painting to sealing.

Participants will be given a cabinet door to paint in the color of their choice. We will teach you what products to use in cleaning your cabinets, demonstrate different finishing techniques, and top coat choices. A step by step process guide will be supplied to each class participant.

You don’t have to be an expert to get professional results using Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint. Let us teach you how easy it is to use our products.

All materials are provided. Participants may bring a cabinet door of their own to use in class if they so chose.

A light snack will be provided. A 10% discount will be offered towards the purchase of any Black Dog Salvage paint products the day of the class.

Class time: 1-4pm Class size is limited to six participants. Register in advance.

Cost: $99

Bring Your Own Piece Class

(Prerequisite: Introduction to Black Dog Furniture Paint Class.)

Breathe new life into an old family heirloom, a yard sale find, or that end table that has never matched anything! Custom mix a color for your piece with the expert help of Swooz & Karen, or use one of the gorgeous premixed colors from our palette.

Tips for what to bring:

  1. The piece should not be any larger than 2 ft. x 2 ft. x 2 ft.
  2. The piece must be cleaned before class. We suggest using TSP which is a painter’s prep. (DAWN, Murphy’s Oil Soap, etc. are not acceptable cleaners as they leave either a silicone or oil residue.)
  3. You must be able to carry the piece yourself back into the paint studio and of course back out to their car.

Suggested items for this class are:

  • Small end table
  • Picture or mirror frames (limit to two)
  • Plant stand
  • Ceramic Pot
  • Lamp

If you have any questions concerning the size of your piece, please call us at: 540-343-6200.

All materials provided and a light snack will be served.

Class time: 10am- Noon Cost: $65
