On Saturday, February 27, 2016, MiniCals hosted a shabby chic garden shelf on a door workshop at M & L Precision Machinery, Inc., Morgan Hill, CA.
Starting with a stock Houseworks six panel interior door, participants assembled shelves, painted, applied decals, decoupaged, and then aged the door with chalk paints. Using simple card stock, various sized planter pots, including faux galvanized French botanical buckets were cut, shaped and then colored with stock acrylic paints to resemble aged and moss covered terra cotta pots. Instructions were provided for simple flowers, placards and a laser cut wreath. A small plastic display case was provided to showcase each finished project.
Fun and sharing were the theme for the day with the added excitement of Deb Laue of Dragonfly on hand, who provided a surprise gift for each participant, as well as optional coordinating accessories for purchase.
Thank you, MiniCals, especially Karen Laisure and Ruth Heisch, for coordinating, setting up and hosting this very popular event!
