It’s fun and easy to up-cycle furniture – dressers, desk almost anything , many of the beautiful pieces at When Modern Was started life looking completely different.  We offer monthly classes that are fun and informative! You will learn to paint 4 different finishes: 2 color rustic finish, 2 color wash, smooth finish, 2-color distressed finish, dry & wet distress, and how to apply the clear and dark waxes. Refreshments served, plus students get a free color chart and 10% off everything in the store day of class! Approximately 2.5 hours. Classes will start on time, so please arrive a few minutes before the class starting time, and allow sufficient time to find parking. No prior painting experience is necessary, and classes are appropriate for ages 12 and up. This is a hands on class. You should wear something you don’t mind getting paint on. While it is unlikely that you will get paint on your clothes, it can happen and it will not wash out once it has dried. Cancellations must be made within 48 hours prior to the class and are refunded at 50%. Less than 48 hour cancellations and no-shows will be charged the full amount. Class participants get 10% off everything in the store on the day of the class.
