What is a Paint & Take Workshop???? We use vinyl as a stencil to make signs (and other projects) out of wood. We sand the wood before hand but because we use wood, there may be random cracks, chips, knots, or other natural blemishes that will give your sign character & charm. We use distressing techniques a lot so that these "blemishes" don't look out of place. We provide chalk paints and a variety of water based stains for you to use in creating your sign. You decide the colors of your background and the design color. All you have to bring is yourself. Everything else is provided. We also provide complimentary coffee, tea, and water. You are welcome to bring along other drinks, snacks, food, etc....


They make GREAT gifts too for that hard to buy for special one in your life.


Remember that we do Private Workshops for a minimum of 10 people. Great for Girls Night Out, Birthdays, Church Groups, Fundraisers, Bachelorette parties, Corporate Team Building.  Call for details and available dates.
