Painting Furniture and the French Cottage Look-McKinney Furniture Painting Class

I have been so busy with life and all that comes with it that I've neglected my blog.
And since tonight seems to be another night of insomnia I thought I'd come and visit with you.
I was painting just about an hour ago. A dresser and a roll top desk. I really have come to enjoy
painting furniture, fabric, walls - really anything but especially furniture.

I also love to share my enthusiasm for this Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, that I started 
teaching a furniture painting class. Now I'm not a stockist-so I teach my students about
different ways to paint but then I let them try their hand at it using my own personal stash of paint, wax, everything!

We have such a blast! August 22nd was my last class since the beginning of the busy photography season for me is about to begin. 

I've come to love each and every furniture piece that I paint. It gives me great pleasure to know
that someone is enjoying that dresser or desk in their own home-making it a little brighter. 

I hand paint each and every piece. Every nook and cranny. Then I hand wax it then hand buff it. 
I hand sand the edges just enough so it looks like it's been worn thru time. 

Here are a few photos of my painting class in McKinney, Texas and the projects the students worked on. I think they did a great job!

Here are a few projects that I finished and have sold!

I hope to share my enthusiasm for painting furniture as the new year rolls around and teach another class.
My classes are taught in McKinney, Texas at the MPAC. 
Do stop in if you are in town.
