Milk Paint: Refunk Your Junk

~This ain’t no oil paint~

An ideal choice for a non-toxic paint with a broad color selection is milk paint. It has an added bonus for being environmentally friendly as well.

First, grab a cup of coffee, tea, or choice of drink and head on over to the Refunk Your Junk Paint Class. Tag along with a friend and each bring a small, wooden furniture item from home, a yard sale, flea mark, thrift shop, or even off the curb. We are ‘Junkers’ and proud to carry that title. Think along the size of a coffee table, night stand, corner shelf, or even a chair.  Then, settle in to learning the Milk Paint secret. Brush it on and wait for the surprises that follow. If you like the old, worn out shabby look of furniture that shows decades of love and use this is the class for you. Expect the unexpected. Milk Paint has a mind of its own. Finally, marvel over the masterpiece you have created and enjoy.

Price of class varies depending on the paints purchased. We can estimate a price together before committing to a class. Remember to bring a friend and split the cost using the same color paint. All other supplies are provided.
