DIY Paint

I have six spots open for the April 18th Color Blending Furniture Painting Workshop. Who's going to join me? It's a four hour class from 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 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.

To create this finish, paint your piece in a medium to dark gray.  Apply a good coat of gray being sure to completely cover everything.  I typically apply two thin coats so I don't miss anything.  Check out our large selection of colors here. For the white washing, use any shade...
