How to Create Flawless Fall Décor Workshop

post by Village Antiques

Don’t panic, but it’s just a few weeks before Holiday season is in full effect! I know it can be overwhelming, so we have a few upcoming workshops to make it easier.

 

How would you like to sip on French wine while getting the scoop on everything Fall décor?

 

Mark your calendar for Friday, November 3rd and plan to be at Village Antiques at 11:30am for our Fall Décor Workshop. As a way to show our appreciation for you, we want to offer you two FREE tickets for you and a friend. (You can get yours by clicking here).

 

Not only will we have a fun French wine tasting, but I’m going to share with you:

 

· The Fall trends I’m loving (and avoiding) this year

· How to effortlessly create an awe-inspiring Thanksgiving table your guests will LOVE

· How to style your kitchen island to inspire

· and much much more!

 

You see, it’s my turn to host this year. A few weeks ago, I was thinking about my own Thanksgiving table and starting getting a little overwhelmed. I’ll admit, I was a little nervous to host. But after putting together some of my favorite fall decor looks, I’m ready and excited!

 

As you know I love to share all of my design tips with you Amitha! So come join us on Fall Décor Workshop for a fun day of design inspiration, togetherness and French wine tasting and learn how to create stunning, welcoming fall style throughout your home.

If you’re like many of our Village Antiques customers, you want to know how you can incorporate fall decor styles in your home that will last from now through to the new year…

 

…and that’s exactly what you’ll learn on Friday, November 3rd!

 

There’s just one catch:

 

We can only accommodate a limited number of attendees at this exclusive event. So be sure to register here for you and a friend before we hit capacity.

 

Furniture Makeover Workshops:

 

If you haven’t been to one of our Chalk Painting Workshops, you’re missing out on a game-changing event.

 

Painting your furniture is the BEST way to give your home a fresh new look with minimal hassle, and it’s one of my go-to tricks whenever I need a change. Sounds scary, and I’m sure you’re thinking you would love to tackle a project BUT fear you may ruin your piece!

 

That’s why I’m going to walk you through the process step-by-step. Discover which workshop is the right fit for you:

1. Beginners Hands-On Workshop-  Are you new to chalk painting? Would you love expert feedback while you work hands-on on a smaller project before you dive into that piece of furniture or your kitchen? Then this class is for you!

 

We’ll dive into beginner and advanced techniques that will give your furniture the professional POP and finishes to set it apart from the hobbyists and the amateur look.

 

You’ll learn how to paint like a pro, seal for long lasting finishes, and use our antiquing glazes to create furniture that looks antique and expensive…even if it’s brand new or a bargain find. You will learn how to master all our tools and our must have tips throughout the process.

 

You’ll also be shown the fundamentals of distressing. If you truly want to give your furniture that classic vintage style, then it’s absolutely VITAL you learn how to distress your paint.

 

You’ll leave the class with samples, your very own painted decorative object and the confidence to tackle those bigger projects and know how to do “right”.

 

Plus, you’ll learn 2 bonus tips that we don’t teach any other class!

2. Advanced Hands-On Workshop-  Get ready to skyrocket your painting skills to the professional level. In the pro class, you’ll learn 6 never before taught complicated designer paint finishes!

You will learn:

  • Pro distressing techniques and the fail-proof Amitha Verma Antiquing System to create an authentic finish
  • How to layer colors to add depth and brilliance to your furniture. You will learn not just one but TWO techniques the pros use
  • Whitewashing techniques and Amitha’s secret dilution formulations
  • Wet distressing
  • The secret to signature finishes like dry-brushing
  • Amitha’s treasure trove of favorite techniques to make an ordinary, flat piece come alive with detail (this should be its own class)
  • How to recreate the beautiful French Country Style on your own furniture.

 

* It is highly recommended you take the Beyond Basics or the Happy Hour course before enrolling for the Advanced Pro Class. We will jump right into several Advanced Techniques. Plus, you’ll get to leave with samples you can keep referring back to for years to come.
