Will there be instruction time spent on how to use painter's tape? I want to get creative with the color palet for my living room!

Will there be a list of supplies I would need to purchase? I never seem to get it all in one trip!

Good questions =)


I also run the Paint Clincs at my store, so hopefully I can help you out while PaintPro is out.


iDig_it  - We certainly can! While PaintPro mentioned that we cover proper preparation technique, this would be a great time to raise your hand and ask your specific tape question! I will usually go over the different types of tape that we sell, when to use them and also interesting techniques. Don't be shy to ask =)


DIYEnthusiast - At my store, we actually have these posted up in the departments for customers to take home. Our paint ones give you a quick glance at everything that you'd need to finish the project right. I'd check with your local store to see if they have one available for you. If not, then feel free to ask the associate running the clinic and he/she should be able to give you a detailed list that will help you fill your cart in no time!


Hope you both enjoy the clinics and be sure to come back and let us know how it went!~

Hey there Pat,


Happy to hear that you're interested in our workshops!~ = )


This month we're covering the Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations in our paint workshops, but worry not! If you take a look at our workshop page, it will keep you appraised of upcoming workshops for the future. This December, we've got a workshop planned for Simple Small Projects for a Holiday-Ready Home. In this workshop we'll look at using both the Martha Stewart Specialty Finishes as well as the project paints like Crackle! = D


Now I certainly don't want you having to put off the project for all that while though. If you have specific questions on it like how to apply the paint or what type of roller to use, then feel free to open up a topic on our forums here about it. Post up your question in our Interior Paint & Stain forum and one of our paint guru's will be more than happy to answer your every question in detail and get the project back on the right foot!


You can also feel free to speak with your local store and the paint associates there. Let them know the issues you're having with the product and they'd be more than happy to help answer your questions and they may even be able to give you a short demo right then and there. Check out our store finder to find your closest store and pay them a visit = )


I hope this helps you out!~ If you have any other questions, just let us know.
