Farragoz Giveaway





Hi everyone.

I have a fabulous giveaway for you! 

Farragoz  has generously offered one of my readers a 12 month online furniture painting course where you will learn the art of patina.  The course runs over a period of 12 months and consists of 5 modules with easy step-by-step instructions.  No artistic ability required!


(I was given the course to review but all comments are my own)

Here are just a few things you will make during this course...






I am in the process of taking the course and it has been fun learning to make my own gesso, paints and stains.  It is amazing how simple and inexpensive they are.  The course also teaches you how to layer paints to get the patina of antique pieces. 

You can see my completed pieces HERE and HERE.

Check out the Farragoz website to see all the projects you will work on and to learn more about the course.



The Giveaway will run through April 28th.

 Best of luck!

On to the Giveaway....




Hugs,

Hi Sherry and Linda@Coastal Charm! It seems there was a glitch with the video on Punchtab and hopefully it is now sorted out. Thanks so much for bringing this to our attention. Linda, thanks for all your entries and feel free to watch the video again for another entry. Good luck!

OH my!!! It was so funny because I just saw an awesome (put fabulously pricey) antique at a store and I wondered if Farragoz could help me do something like it and then I saw your giveaway!!! Sherry--I remember your first discussion on this course and it has stuck with me. I want to develop that "eye" that they speak of.

Thanks for a wonderful giveaway---my fingers are crossed, my toes are crossed, my eyes are crossed!!!! PJKINATL@HOTMAIL.COM

I love patina because it looks rich and elegant and time-worn. I think patina is much more beautiful than things that are shiny and new...

I love the comfortable, well lived and well loved feeling that patina gives a piece. It adds character and history in a world where everything seems to be disposable these days.
