(the color looks great with the fall mums in the basket) 

Classes are $120. which includes all materials, a book and a great lunch. Susie says, "I believe lunch is important, it gives time for discussion asking questions and sharing ideas."

Here is a photo of Lisa Harrison Skeleton, who now teaches classes, from her first class 
along with Jennifer Waters, my daughter who is my top assistant in all of my classes.
The two you ladies on the recently painted coffee table are Mallory and Marley Hughes

Mallory owns the Confetti Crate and they run the store together. Mallory paints all the time when she is not at the store. She and Marley are constantly on Facebook or on Instagram sharing photos of painted furniture, restock alerts on paints and supplies or letting customers know about upcoming classes." Mallory has customers who come in constantly wanting her to paint or restore their furniture. She has them look at the Amy Howard paint and they select their colors and the rest is history."

  1. I just got in business with my friend, she owns an antique store. We went to Las Vegas to check out their antiquities shops to get more merchandise and I found amazing furniture that I plan on restoring. I have never restored anything before so I have been doing a little research. This was helpful, thanks for sharing.

  2. I will definitely have to check out that paint. Their store looks amazing, Wish I lived close by . I am sure I would be a regular. Great post my friend and thanks for the info on the paint.
