Over the years I have had so many people ask about learning to stain furniture. Well, I have finally put together a course to teach both refinishing and painting furniture. I am very happy to finally be able to share my expertise and knowledge to help others restyle their furniture keeping it out of the landfill.
It is a 3 day course over 3 weeks. Each day is comprised of approximately 3.5 hours of hands-on learning and will be labour intensive. You will need to provide a small side / occasional table to refinish and paint. The table should comprise of a simple design of solid wood, flat top and four legs that doesn’t exceed W 18” x D 18”. Please no cabinets or shelves. See examples of suggested styles of side tables in the photos. Email photos and measurements for approval to firstname.lastname@example.org asap.
Day 1 Clean, sand & strip table
Day 2 Sand top, stain and paint base of table
Day 3 Apply Clear top coat, finish painting if necessary and wax base
