Wow! We pulled it off just in time! Our Christmas milk paint workshops are organized and we are excited about this year's projects.
If you have been in my shop lately, you likely know that I have a wonderful lady, Karen, helping me. Karen is a very knowledgeable and talented painter and painted most of these projects. Karen will be teaching the workshops. Although it is difficult to step away from the things that I love (like teaching workshops), I am quickly realizing that I cannot do it all.
I am not going to go into tons of details about the workshops. If you are interested in attending one, you can get more information about them on my workshop page.
If you are already familiar with milk paint or you live too far away to attend a workshop, I have included a list of products and basic instructions for the signs at the end of my blog post.
Our first workshop has two stencil designs to choose from.
The sign could also be turned into a serving tray by adding handles.
I have always wanted to make a hot chocolate bar in my home for the holiday season. Wouldn't it be fun to make a cozy little corner like this?
During the class, we will by playing around with a couple wood blocks to learn techniques before you paint your signs.
How cute are these?
If you prefer a sign for everday use, you will have this option too!
Workshop #2 also has two stencil designs to choose from.
Believe it or not, the signs are all made from new wood. Our workshop will show you how to create an authentic looking old sign!
Pin for later!
