Amy Howard at Home® Hands-On Workshop

Wednesday, January 18, 5:00 pm–7:00 pm
Russian Hill and Rockridge Locations • $10 (reimbursed with $10 gift card at class)

We’ve been raving about this paint for its ease of use and ability to transform furniture or cabinetry without stripping, sanding, or priming. Here’s your chance to see for yourself at our hands-on demonstration! Amy Howard at Home One Step Paint™  is a water-based paint that adheres to most any surface. Paint directly on old wood finishes, concrete, iron, stone, Formica, and more. It dries to the flat, chalky finish that we covet on antique pieces found at a Paris flea market or our favorite second-hand shops. Wax and dusting powder finish off the furniture for an authentic vintage look.

We will go through the painting, waxing, and dusting processes, and all materials will be provided. Register for the workshop at E-mail  or call 415/674-8913 ext. 4 with any questions.
We hope you join us for inspiration to take on a painting project at home!
