Atlanta Milk Paint Workshop Giveaway!


I’m headed to Fayetteville, Arkansas this weekend (February 22-23, 2013) for a Milk Paint workshop, DIY seminar and book signing at The House Special Interiors.  If you’re in the area, I would love to have you join us.  All of the details are listed on my side bar and HERE.

 The next trip I’m going on is to Atlanta, Georgia on March 16, 2013, for another Milk Paint workshop, DIY seminar and book signing at Brushstrokes by Mary Anne.  The event is being held at Founders Hall in Roswell, GA.

Here’s the schedule of events…

9:00 am – 11:30 am: Milk Paint Workshop – This workshop will be hand’s on!  We will be painting DIY trays (made out of cabinet doors) and you’ll learn all about Milk Paint from mixing to painting to distressing to finishing.  

$100 (includes paint and supplies), $110 after March 5


Between sessions, I’ll head out to a local lunch in Roswell and anyone who wants to join me is welcome.  (I can also sign books during the lunch break for those who can’t attend the events.)
1:30 pm – 2:30 pm : DIY Seminar  I taught this seminar in Colorado and it was a big hit.  I will share the benefits of DIY, some of my favorite secret weapons and lots of sources for goodies like bargain hemp fabric and preserved boxwood branches.  Bring a pencil and paper to this one!  

$40, $60 after March 5

 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm : Book Signing  Free to anyone who wants to come.


If you’d like to attend all day, the total event price: $129, $160 after March 5

This is just an opportunity I don’t want to miss. Thank you for this post.

    I just registered and am SOOOO excited to attend! We were blessed with a big, beautiful home 2 years ago, and I’m in the planning stages of PAINTING THE ENTIRE INTERIOR WITH MILK PAINT! I will be photographing the stages and can share them with you as I go if you’d like to see. I SO look forward to learning all I can learn from youin person!

    You have also greatly inspired me and I’m going to be opening my own booth at our local antique store here in Marietta this summer and getting a website! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Marian for sharing your insight and expertise. It is because of you that I am gaining the courage to follow my heart. :)

    Just stumbled across your blog looking for milk paint info in Atlanta. I’m a teacher/mom of teenage boys (yikes!)…and I’m trying to rediscover the artistic and creative me! Currently, I’m experimenting on refinishing a junk dresser, but would LOVE to attend your workshop to learn more.
    So glad I discovered you!
