Chalk Paint®

To meet your needs, we have three levels of workshops: W1: Chalk Paint® Foundations, W2: Advanced Chalk Paint®, and W3: Kitchen Cabinets & More. We discuss why the unique Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan is so amazing and how to distress without the stress. We teach everything you need to know to create beautiful pieces of furniture at a fraction of the expected cost. Workshop guests leave with the samples they create, two sample pots of paint, and a two-inch paintbrush. Please wear your painting clothes, be ready to roll up your sleeves, and have some fun.  


If you are interested in having a private workshop with 2 to 4 of your family or friends, please call us and we would be glad to arrange a date that will work for you.  765-472-3684.

A fun new workshop has been added called Refunk Your Junk.  At this workshop you may bring a small piece of furniture and paint it using a painting technique, distressing, waxing and buffing. Your piece of furniture must be a small piece for example, side table, chair, large frame, small trunk, etc. Call and make sure your piece is suitable for class. Cost is 95.00 and payment is required to hold a spot in the workshop.

Each workshop is limited to 4 to 5 participants. Cost is $125.00 for W1: Chalk Paint® Foundations and W2: Advanced Chalk Paint®.  If you bring a friend to class, then each of you can save $25.00 and pay $100.00 each for the workshop. Payment is required to reserve your spot. Call 765-472-3684 for more information. All Workshops are held at The Farris Wheel, 630 W. Main Street, Peru, IN.
