Wet Paint: Stain and Stencil

Wet Paint: Stain and Stencil

One of the hottest trends in home decor is signage. Whether it’s a quote, a simple word or a personalized motto, signs are what people are looking for to tell their guests more about them and maybe as a reminder to themselves. Another trend is the DIY movement. People are trying all sorts of new crafts and having a great time. Whether it’s an evening with their friends or family or even alone, trying something new and getting creative is fun and relaxing. Stain and Stencil combines both of those trends into one. Their DIY sign workshops are perfect for new and pro crafters alike! You walk in and owner, Rachelle Harkenrider, and staff take care of you every step of the way. They’ll transform you from newbie to pro in just one sign! Once you’re in the shop, you’ll get to pick all of your color and stain options. The staff will teach you how to apply stain or paint and distress your board. Then, you’ll apply your stencil. The staff has lots of tips and guides for making sure you get it on just right. Then, you’ll paint in the stencil with the colors of your choice. Depending on your piece, you may or may not have a few more steps to finish. Rachelle and her team work hard to make sure you’re happy with your piece. To sign up for a workshop, simply go to their website (www.stainandstencil.com) look through their gallery and find a sign you’d like to create. Then find their calendar and an open workshop. If you’d like any customization, you can let them know in the registration process.  Have an event or a group you want to create with? Stain and Stencil will set up a private event with your group. As a unique small business owner in town, Rachelle has been eager to help and collaborate with other small businesses wherever possible. From sign projects, to cupcakes for customers, to the wine slushees she includes in your workshop, Rachelle is sharing the business wealth and helping other businesses grow along with hers. You can find Stain and Stencil on Facebook, Instagram and at their website, www.stainandstencil.com. Check out their social media what others have done with their signs, for specials, and upcoming...
