Do you have a small piece of furniture that you wish you could refresh but don't know how? Is it the perfect size or shape with a lackluster finish?  Is it sentimental to you and your family but it doesn't fit your aesthetic?  It's time to take those pieces out of the basement, out of the corner and away from the landfill!  Join us for a Paint Your Own Piece of Furniture workshop with Reliv Design & Wise Owl Paints hosted by Cottonwood & Church in Old Wethersfield. 

Two dates to choose from!

Saturday, August 3rd from 10:00am - 1:30pm 

Thursday August 8th from 4:30pm - 8:00pm

Where: 133 Main Street, Wethersfield, CT 06109

What you'll learn: In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn how to prep your piece, properly apply Chalk Synthesis Paint and seal it for durability. During the drying process, Reliv Design will give short demonstrations on Wise Owl's various paint and home products.  We'll also enjoy shopping inside the beautiful Cottonwood & Church in idyllic Old Wethersfield.

What to bring:  A small piece of furniture you can carry unassisted.  Participants are asked to email a photo of their piece ahead of time so we can check that it is suitable for the workshop. Please send your photo to
Don't have a piece to paint but want to be involved in the workshop?  We have you covered!  Swing by Cottonwood & Church to purchase an unfinished piece.

What we provide:
- Hands-on instruction on technique and products.

- Participants will use Wise Owl Chalk Synthesis Paints provided by ReLiv Design & will have 6 colors to choose from (plus 2 bonus shades of white!).

- Each participant will receive a small Wise Owl paint brush to use and take home with them after the workshop (for all their future projects!)   

- Chalk Paint is a two-step process and the paint requires a wax or lacquer to seal it for durability. Reliv Design will have wax available for sealing pieces if they are dry or participants may purchase a small tin of wax at a discounted rate to continue their project at home. Remember, all participants will have a demo on how to apply the wax properly.

- Drinks & light refreshments are provided. We will plan to break for our paint to dry between coats. Please feel free to bring your own meal to enjoy during this time.

- Participants can also enjoy special discounts on Wise Owl products purchased the day of the workshop.

What to expect: We will be painting outside under tents, weather permitting.  If the weather is stormy, we will move the workshop to the next day. (Rain date for Saturday 8/3 will be Sunday August 4, rain date for Thursday 8/8 will be Friday 8/9.)
