* bring your own piece
you just need to bring a small piece of furniture - i.e. something that will fit on top of a table for easy painting: a chair, small side table, stool, picture frames etc. roughly no bigger than 3' x 2' is a good guideline to use when deciding what to bring. if you have a larger piece that you would like to work on, but it’s too big for this class - we recommend bringing a couple of it's drawers or doors and we can help you get a start on it! you can then bring your knowledge and confidence home with you to finish up the project. if you can bring an inspirational photo of how you would like the finished piece to look this can be really helpful! (pinterest is a great resource.)
