Make It, Take It Workshop with Stylish Patina

Sep 14, 2018

Kelly Thompson of Stylish Patina loves to inspire people to restore and refurbish furniture, so much so that she has two stores in the Northern Virginia region featuring regular paint workshops. During the weekend of September 21-23, Kelly and her team will be offering seasonal DIY projects in the popular Make It Take It workshop space at the 2018 Capital Home Show.

“While chalk paint has been a product on the market for a while, we love the Make It Take It workshop at the Capital Home Show because it gives attendees a chance to experiment on a small project,” said Thompson. “We have seen many attendees inspired by the ease of the paint and excited to experiment with furniture and cabinets in their own homes.”
