About The Event

Want to make OLD NEW again??? We want to share our passion for painting with Dixie Belle Paints and put some new life into those forgotten or tired pieces! 

We will begin with the BASICS - Prep, Paint, Distress + Protect in one class (3-4 hours), and you leave with a small piece of furniture completely transformed by YOU!! Plus the confidence and support to tackle other projects at home! 

Register - Purchase your "seat" in advance online, in store, or over the phone at least 2 days prior to the class as Space is Limited and we can prepare and arrange staffing prior to the class. Please keep in mind classes do fill up quickly! 

What to bring? Bring any small item: a couple of picture frames, small shelf, a chair/stool, small side table - nothing larger than 2 foot all around. (Guide: You should be able to carry the item all by yourself and up a small set of steps). No sanding or prep work is necessary before class - just knock off any cobwebs before we meet. Consider wearing comfy clothes and anything you don't mind getting paint on - just in case. We do provide aprons as well! You may also want to consider how you want to take your freshly painted treasure home with you. Bring a blanket to cover and cushion your piece on it's ride home.

 

What does Rusty Cottage provide?

Our class sizes for Paint Your Own Furniture are small to ensure a hands on guided experience and to give you a bit of elbow room! We provide all of the tools needed for you to be successful - cleaner, paint, paint brushes, sealer, the whole nine yards! 

Not sure if your piece is the right size or condition for painting? Shoot an image to rustycottagetn@gmail.com and we will help you out! 

We look forward to having you and having FUN! 

FAQS 

  • Is there an age limit?Minimum age is 12, and ages 12 - 17 must be accompanied by a paid adult as well. 
  • Where do I park?There is parking at the front, side and back of the building.  Entrances at the front and side. 
  • Can I bring food/drinks?Absolutely! We are in class 3-4 hours, you might need a little snack! 
  • Can we use stains or glazes or multiple colors?Great question! Generally these will add additional time, chat with us prior to the class day, staining typically requires full sanding on your part before bring to class or unfinished wood - again let's discuss.
  • What can't I bring? No large or heavy items as we cannot accommodate loading/unloading. Plus we only have a few hours together and it would take much longer for a dresser, chest of drawers, etc. to paint/dry/seal. You can however bring a few drawers (2-3) from a dresser to start your project! 
  • What if it rains or snows? Can I leave my masterpiece at your store? Absolutely! You can pick up the next day or later in the week.
  • The workshop will be rescheduled if the weather and road conditons are dangerous.   
  • Is my ticket transferable? All registrations must be paid in advance to ensure materials, set up and staffing is in place for you. If you cannot attend and would like to transfer your registration to someone else that is fine with us, call 865-859-9282 to notify us of the change.
