I have six spots open for the July 28 Color Blending Furniture Painting Workshop. Who's going to join me? It's a four hour class from 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. held at The Honeysuckle Co., just off Plainfield in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

I've always loved the look of old world look of paint finishes in Tuscany and have decided it's time to share my some of my personal style for blending with the public.

Registration is open; sign up HERE.

This specialty Bring Your Own Piece of Furniture Paint Blending Workshop is Scheduled for July 28, 2019 from 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m..  For more info, click below.
