Our first Webster’s Workshop

Webster's Chalk Paint Powder Workshop

Shew! Our first workshop is done and I just had to blog about it! It may or may not have been obvious to the participants of the class, but I was incredibly nervous! I’ve done my share of public speaking in the past and although I’ve never  had a problem chatting it up or sharing something I’m passionate about,  I did not enjoy the pressure of having to look cute and really hating memorizing key notes! I was a little worried that I’d feel the same way doing the workshops. Thankfully, I did not! I felt no need to get a manicure first or buy a new outfit! I actually didn’t even straighten my hair! I simply showed up in my work clothes and shared something I do love to do!

I could not have asked for a better bunch of ladies to have in my first class! I’ve provided custom work for a few of them, others I met for the first time at the workshop. Because they’ve all been an ever present source of encouragement on Facebook, I felt like I knew them all! Putting a face to a name is always cool!


Talk about fancy! We had turquoise Solo cups!

We started out by learning how to mix Webster’s Chalk Paint Powder then finished sample boards before moving to the furniture. I have to call out my blunder for the evening because after all, we all have them and they can be learning experiences for others! I used a new {to me} tablespoon to pre-measure out the powder before the workshop. Shannon and I scored it at a yard sale the day before, along with a bajillion tupperware bowls for mixing. It was obviously more than a tablespoon and everybody got a little more powder than needed! I tested it when I got it home and it was actually a Tbsp and a half {what it was for I’ll never know}! Nothing a little extra water didn’t fix. Did I mention I love the flexibility of Webster’s!

The ladies were tha bomb! There were a few that were almost upside down painting! Every piece had it’s own signature style! I love that about painted furniture! Did you know that Webster’s works great on glossy, faux bamboo? Kimberly’s fish tank got a sweet update! Check it out, along with all the beautiful work my ladies created!

Pretty impressive, huh? I’m still waiting to see a few of the pieces all out back together. I had a blast and can’t wait for the next workshop!
