February - a time to think about Spring being just around the corner, new beginnings, making changes and starting something new.  We are so proud of our vendors who have been hard at work, collecting, cleaning, fixing, and painting - spending hours and precious time transforming those less than perfect pieces into treasures to be proud of.  Come see all that's new, inspiring and exciting at Paddywac's. 

See you Soon!

We have a great agenda of workshops scheduled for February and March to inspire you to learn all about the paint everyone's talking about!

CHALK PAINT® 101 - This is a great class for anyone who wants to get started painting with Chalk Paint or has used it already and wants to become better acquainted.  We will go over various techniques such as two color distressed, modern or smooth finish, rustic, and soft gilded finish as well as how to use the clear and dark waxes.  After 3 hours, you will leave confident and excited to start your next painting project!  All materials will be provided and coffee and water will be available.  Register on line here. 
DIY Kitchen Rehab with CHALK PAINT®  - Learn the ins and outs of rehabbing your kitchen with an inexpensive, simple coat of paint.  We discuss the whole process, preparation, painting, glazing, and finishing coat options to suit your family lifestyle.  We clean up the mess!  Learn more and Register on line here.  
CHALK PAINT® 201 - Beyond the basics!  This Workshop is for those who are looking to build on the Introductory Workshop.   If you have taken CHALK PAINT® 101 or have experience with CHALK PAINT® and want to learn more, then this is the class for you.  You will learn four unique finishes using multiple steps which create depth and age using some of the new techniques of Annie Sloan including Frottage, Craqueleur, Decoupage, Stenciling, and Simple Leaf and Foil using Artisan Enhancement products.  Learn more and Register on line here.

PAINT 'N WINE Fun Fridays - BYOP Makeovers with CHALK PAINT®  -  Gather your friends for an evening of fun.  BRING YOUR OWN PIECE evening is focused on fun and taking home your adorable completed project.  Instruction is given in the application and history of CHALK PAINT®, color consultation, distressing, clear and dark wax application, and required troubleshooting will be discussed.  Suggested items include small tables, frames, an item you can carry in by yourself.  Since the focus is on fun, feel free to bring your favorite adult beverage to enjoy with friends.  Learn more and REGISTER TODAY

LET'S GET PAINTING - A Perfect Mirror Frame - This is a great class for those that would rather learn by painting a project using CHALK PAINT® decorative paint by Annie Sloan.  Using one or two paint colors (choose from 31) you will learn about painting and finishing techniques while painting a wooden mirror with wood detail that you will take home with you.  All materials will be provided.

All workshops are held at Paddywac's Studio, 201 E. Main St., Anoka, MN.  Class size is limited and payment in advance is required to reserve your spot.  REGISTER TODAY

We hope to see you at Paddywac's whatever your project!
