Have you ever wanted to have professional looking faux-painted walls but just couldn’t afford to have it done? It’s not as hard to do as you think. If you’ve ever thought of doing this yourself, set aside Saturday April 28 on your calendar. That’s when Rock Valley College brings Linda Coffman in to teach her very popular class, Fabulous Faux for Boring Walls. This one-time seminar is all you need to get started.
The class is taught in two parts. Part one covers the basic looks of classic, tuscan, and metallics. This class will run from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Part two from 1 to 3:30p.m. takes off from part one and combines her approach with more popular approaches such as suede, rustic and modern.
Coffman’s approach reveals secrets of the pros. She has been in the wallpapering and faux-painting business for over 18 years. Her work is featured in businesses, hotels, restaurants, bed and breakfasts and fine homes throughout the Minnesota area and now in Arizona. Hundreds are now using her special techniques to create their own professional looking faux-painted walls.
By taking this class students will be able to have perfect ceilings and corners, to use glaze with a uniquely designed roller, and how to do numerous looks such as the leather look and old world looks. It just takes a twist of the wrist and tricks of the trade your instructor will share with you in this very practical and money saving class.
