CREATE A NEW LOOK USING ACRYLIC PAINT
Create a new look for an old piece of furniture (a chair, wheelbarrow, paddle, trunk, milk can, old school desk, stool, etc) by decorating it with acrylic paint. Make sure your piece of furniture is small enough to transport upstairs if need be. We are hoping to paint outside but will move inside if the weather is not cooperative. On the day of the class, Sue Schurch will have all the supplies that you need to work on your project. You will leave class with a finished project except for varnishing which instructions will be provided on how to do at home.
