Paint Your Own Backyard or Garden Bench - July 24th from 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM - Price: $115
Workshop Instructor: David Cooper

Making simple backyard, garden or rustic porch furniture from used wooden shipping pallets is easy and fun. In this three hour workshop, the instructor will briefly discuss where to find good used pallets and how to safely dismantle them and make them into benches. Participants will paint their very own colorful pre-constructed pallet bench and take it home with them. Benches will be primed and ready to paint. Stencils, spray paint, paint, and brushes will be provided as well as assistance with both painting and design. Paint used will be zero voc latex paint, which has mild fumes and dries to the touch in less than an hour. Note: Delivery option available in the Central Kentucky area, see Notes below.

This learnshop is open to all levels, but participants should have some experience with painting and come with ideas to create your own design. Participants might want to visit Dave’s KY Pallet Artist Facebook page to jump start their creative design brainstorming.
