During the 2.5-hour workshop, students wield CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk & Clay Paints as they practice painting multilayered finishes on samples of molding. The group learns about color combinations and which hues can add a vintage, french, or contemporary flair to furniture. The instructor also teaches techniques to add crackled or distressed finishes before showing how to add an ending sheen with clear and dark waxes. Workshops are available in both Prescott and Mesa locations and take place on Saturdays at 9:30 a.m. and Tuesdays at 6 p.m., and additional classes may be added according to need.
The plush sofas and oak wardrobes lure prospective homeowners into Furniture Affair’s 28,000-square-foot showroom, where they are further wooed with brand names such as Somerton, Stanley, Woodard Patio, and Lane. Each week, new armchairs, beds, and sideboards arrive at the showroom, ready to transform every room in a house or large sandcastle. The store’s professionals offer complimentary in-store design advice, aiding customers as they pick out lamps and wine racks or discussing fabric selection, lighting, and layout. During a profile by News Channel 3, Lisa Haffner explored how the designers’ expertise transformed a bachelor pad into a welcoming enclave with a mohair sofa, computer armoire, and original art.
